How does it sound?

To fully test out this system we ran through a DVD, a whole bunch of CD's (a full volume naturally) and a wide variety of other sounds to test out the range and capabilities of the speakers individually and as a whole. The DSR-100 is compatible with both analog and digital 4-channel sound cards and digital stereo (PCM).

From our late-night tests of the system we found out the following. With the volume all the way up those little speakers are capable of putting out some serious sound. If the volume is too intense they will start to introduce some distortion however. The subwoofer can put out thuds and thumping from a good game of Quake III enough to wake even the soundest sleeping neighbor at 2 in the morning. We don't suggest you try that for yourself however ;-)

On the low side of things sound is pretty well represented. The environment where you would have the Xtrusio set up is important when making adjustments to the subwoofer. If they aren't made correctly the system either sounds overbearing or weak. It is not difficult to adjust however.

All in all, the system rivaled our full-fledged stereo. up to a certain volume the Xtrusio pretty much clobbered what the stereo could do in terms of sound quality and base. When the Xtrusio started show signs of maxing out it was at party volume :-)

Logitech sells the whole system for about $179USD which includes a copy of PowerDVD software, a CD of eMusic songs, two wall mounts, two cable adapters for various kinds of digital audio jacks, 4 speakers, one remote and comes with a two year warranty.

The whole Xtrusio sound system looks cool, sounds great, and has a small footprint. This is one of the more unique sound products to hit the market in its complete abandonment of wood. The extruded aluminum subwoofer offers sound comparable to that of a full-fledge stereo system, and would be great for playing CD's or MP3's. If your are looking for a very high-quality audio solution for your system I would recommend looking closely at the SoundMan Xtrusio.
