Today there are numerous models of multimedia speaker systems for any taste and liking in shops, making it easy to get confused and pass by something really exceptional. Systems from Creative, however, developed by the Cambridge SoundWorks acoustic laboratory, can captivate any idle shopper who is wandering around a computer supermarket.

We are going to test the Creative GigaWorks S750 speaker system today, which is attractive due to both: its exclusive design and the list of technical characteristics, which accompanies each product in a shop.

What’s so attractive about the characteristics? Let’s read them first!

The main parameter is highlighted red in the table: the Creative GigaWorks S750 can reproduce the audiophile frequency range, unlike ordinary multimedia speaker systems. Besides that, the system is endowed with high power, comes with a large subwoofer with a big-diameter diffuser and has double-band satellites. This is all very good, but an average customer may be disappointed having reached the last row of the table above. On the other hand, the price seems adequate to the product if we consider it seriously. You can divide the total price of the system by eight (speakers) and subtract the cost of the amplifier, accessories (like the control unit, wires and so on) to reach a very modest price of around $40 per unit. The GigaWorks S750 may be an excellent choice for building an astonishing home theater based around your personal computer. Just don’t overstrain yourself, carrying this system home. :)


The package is both big and heavy

According to the text on the package (its dimensions: 44x51x57cm), the weight of the system is 28.5kg. Let’s see what we have inside.
