VideoLogic Announces Sirocco Speaker Systems for the USA

VideoLogic Systems - a division of Imagination Technologies - has today announced that three members of its award-winning Sirocco family of speaker products are to make a debut in the USA in May 2000.

The three systems are Sirocco Crossfire, a 4.1 surround sound system for gamers, Sirocco Spirit, a high performance desktop mini-monitor set-up, and Sirocco Pro, a powerful system for home musicians and studios.

From desktop speakers to pro-audio monitoring VideoLogic's Sirocco range provides remarkable hi-fi quality sound. The Sirocco range manages to achieve remarkable price points by applying VideoLogic's design skills combined with low-cost manufacturing techniques and components from the hi-fi industry. Sirocco speakers have created a paradigm shift in computer audio winning accolades from numerous magazines - including the prestigious PC Magazine UK Technical Innovation Award for Best Multimedia Product 1998.

The components and techniques used in the manufacture of all the Sirocco product family are those used in hi-fi and pro audio equipment. Within the same categories, no other speaker systems come close to the Sirocco family's hi-fi quality sound.
