Samsung Trution USB powered 5.1 Surround Speaker Review

published: 03/17/05 last updated: 03/17/05

Gadget store Fancylogic sent us a set of interesting and stylish PC speakers from Samsung. The Samsung Trution Crystal TSP-7000X are small 5.1 virtual surround speakers that are powered through the USB port.
 

Fancylogic is selling the Samsung Trution USB Speakers for $37.50. They come in white and black.

Overview
USB powered speakers are an interesting space and cable saving solution. The Samsung Trution speakers support 3D sound with a 5.1 channel simulation that is working quite well. The speakers provide 2x 0.4W power. The frequency response is 200Hz - 20KHz and the impendence is 4 Ohms. The measurements of the USB speakers is only 60x100x50mm. The design is nice and the speakers look well made. The clear plastic gives them a shiny and modern look.

USB Speakers do not need a power supply


The speakers can also be directly connected to the audio output, but of course than they are just passive, but still usable. The bundled software allows me to enable 5.1 Surround sound simulation. When the speakers are plugged in after the software (Xear USB) is installed a tray icon appears. The first screen in the software controls basic settings like left and right speaker assignment and volume.  It is quite intriguing what comes out of those little boxes then. The software lets me drag each box (see photo below) around or set the room size for the sound simulation. A little 3D helicopter program shows what the spatial sound simulation can do. The software also has tons of equalizer settings and sound distortions/environments like parking lot, drugged, dizzy, underwater - fun to play with.
What else is there to say about speakers. Those small speakers are of course not extremely powerful. They are loud enough, but I would not be able to annoy my neighbors with them.

USB plug for audio and power. The speakers can also directly connect to the head-set input when removing the USB adaptor.


 

Conclusion
The Samsung Trution 5.1 surround sound USB speakers are nicely made set of speakers that are visually attractive. The 5.1 surround sound simulation works well. USB Speakers like this are ideal for travel and connecting to a notebook.

 
How to Buy
Fancylogic sells the Samsung speakers for $37.50.
