When it comes to gear and having a great setup we look for equipment that can stand up to the challenge that the #GSEG gamer will put on their system. We want quality gear for that lives up to its hype. This month we spent a lot of time testing what we feel is the perfect audio system for a gamer that doesn’t need a huge system, but wants big crisp sound and something that looks good with the setup.
Our friends and partners at VM Audio asked us to put their ELUX 500 Watt (EXMS520T) 5.1 Surround Sound System the test. This well designed, 5 speakers and a sub, with touch screen and remote control user interfaces was ready to go out of the box.
First thing we noticed was that the speakers were sleek with a nice shine finish and were perfect for tucking around a raised entertainment center. They came with preset cord lengths that were made to help surround a smaller living room or game desk/office scenario. These speakers came with everything you need to wall mount and for our setup we found the zip ties that hold the individual wires worked great after setup to cable bundle the entire bunch running to the sub. Try it out. It makes it look quite organized. The latest version of these speakers are now able to have their cabling adjusted so you can better fit it to any environment.
Next we setup the Sub woofer. This is a great sub that has an LED lit touch screen control panel on the front of the system. It is features a wood enclosure for the base module with hyper tuning port design. This system boasted a 500w total peak fully powered system with a 40 Hz-20 kHz. After getting the speakers set and connected to the system we used the control panel to adjust for 5.1 Surround sound and connected it to our Xbox 360 Gaming System.
As far as connection wires go this system was accompanied by everything you need to connect to a TV or gaming system and your whole assortment of digital audio devices. It also features a card slot and a USB port which is great for charging your iPhone while listening to the latest hip hop bangers!
