Last year was 2 months ago. They're not evolving quicker than that bud.

I would like to see MPC do a review of Edifer's S750 gaming speakers, as well as compare them to the Logitech Z-5500....
Edifer is in the process of getting their speakers THX certifed, I think this may be only for their 5.1 speakers, however I am not sure of that.
When aged Klipsch are THX certified already?
It's just a Lucas cert and doesn't mean all that much. Klipsch had a shoe-in from being in the theaters already. When Edifer gets it, let us know. But many are shot down if they don't start with "K".
And to compare any THX to the 5500? Silly. One is a computer speaker, one is a theater quality system. See all those logitechs in home theaters? Me neither. Their quality of sound sucks...badly. They work in computer rooms though!
But really...Polk, Yamaha, Klipsch, and nameless others that make great speakers; why compare to ho-hum? Or 2.0 studios for that matter and their finite range. You're asking MPC to become audiophiles, and that ain't going to happen when they say an X-Fi from a gamer is better than a budget Xonar aimed at actual sound. They'll beat the hell out of anything without EAX...hardware level or not.
So leave it to them, if it's not EAX, it's crap to them. THX? Doesn't matter because they don't test for sound quality...they test them on cost and frames per second...and sells pitches.
