Creative Labs got very popular among the PC users not only due to their Sound Blaster sound cards, but also due to their high-quality acoustic systems. Of course, these are high-quality solutions since all the development is done by the experienced team of Cambridge SoundWorks acoustic laboratory, which is actually a direct partner of Creative Labs. Creative is currently offering a broad variety of acoustic solutions, and this list keeps constantly growing.
One of the innovative offerings from Creative, I-TRIGUE 3600 speaker system, is going to be the hero of our today’s review. This system includes a not very big subwoofer and a pair of nice-looking satellites.
As usual, let’s first take a closer look at the list of technical specifications claimed by the manufacturer.
8.5W RMS per channel
Supported frequency range
30 ~ 20,000Hz
Signal to Noise ratio (SNR)
61mm x 88mm x 163mm
180mm x 268mm x 310mm
Wired remote control unit
72mm x 28mm
Having looked through the table above you may have realized that all the parameters of this speaker system are pretty standard, however, once you’ve reached the very last line indicating the price of the solution, you may turn pretty puzzled. Don’t you think that $100 is a little bit too much, to put it mildly, for a 2+1 set? Well, we will do our best to find a logical explanation to that once we go a little bit deeper into details about the peculiarities and performance of the Creative I-TRIGUE 3600 sound system.
The colors of the package follow Creative Labs’ corporate palette. Inside the box you can find the following items:
- two satellites with a 2m cable;
- wired remote control unit;
- external power supply unit;
- stereophonic audio-cable;
- additional audio-cable;
- 2xRCA/stereo-minijack adapter (for gaming consoles);
- brief user’s manual.
As we see, the package contains everything one may need in order to connect this speaker set not only to a computer system, but also to a gaming console or an MP3 player. To make it easier to work with this system, there is a remote control unit included. And the user’s manual lists all the major configuration types the system can be connected to.
