Price


Great price, great sound and easy to use.


When all is said and done, you get high-end sound at a mid-fi price ($151 from amazon).

Packaging/appearance


My only advice to the manufacturer is to improve the presentation of the packaging.


This device is ridiculously small and the packaging is borderline crude and yet, once you plug it in to the usb output of your ...  Read More

    No, they're not audioengine, but they are not $30 logitechs either.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    While the speakers definitely improved the sound, it was still somewhat hissy and just not as pure as it could be.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Setup was a complete non-event: plug in the usb, move the speaker input from the laptop to the line (not headphone) out and windows 8.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    With the hrt installed and no change to the speaker volume knob, i had to reduce the windows volume slider to 15%.

    I am looking forward to seeing what this thing will do when connected to my ipod once the camera connector shows up.

    That, combined with the measurements (trusting the manufacturer on those) means this device is sonically transparent -- it's not adding to or removing anything from the sound, and you're hearing it as it was recorded.

    Asked a follow-up question and got an answer almost instantaneously.
