VideoLogic Systems is a division of Imagination Technologies. They were always well known for producing a range of innovative products in the areas of 2D/3D graphics. Their Essential products include graphics accelerators based on PowerVR technology. Their recent success with the PowerVR graphics chip found in the new Sega Dreamcast gave VideoLogic an opportunity to become one of todayís leading graphics acceleration companies in the world.

Over a year ago, VideoLogic saw an opportunity to enter todayís tight PC audio arena. Their main strategy was simple and quite different from other PC speaker companies: Introduce hi-fi quality speakers for use on todayís computer systems. Although todayís latest offerings in the area of PC speakers seem to be outstanding in both quality and performance, none of them could be compared with real high fidelity audio equipment (hi-fi).

VideoLogicís first speaker release was the sirocco speakers. A set coming with an Audax 6.5" cone (35Hz to 130Hz) subwoofer, two Audax 4" cone (130Hz to 3.8KHz) satellites using an Audax 10mm polymer dome (3.8KHz to 20KHz) and of course VideoLogicís own powerful amplifier with 28000ĶF of smoothing capacitance.

Just by looking at these specifications and companies involved, we already see that this unit would not come cheap. As in the beginning VideoLogic speakers were initially limited to Europe, this Sirocco set-up was estimated to cost around $350~400USD. We must admit that a $400USD price tag for two stereo speakers and a subwoofer is not cheap indeed, but this equipment canít even come close to the plastic things we are used to have on our computer desks. We are talking real hi-fi here!

With its recent success in Europe, VideoLogic extended its Sirocco speaker products to expand into new markets. The new Sirocco Crossfire is a 4.1-surround system for the hard-core gamers out there. The Sirocco Spirit is a high performance desktop mini-monitor set-up for the average home user. The powerful Sirocco Pro is a powerful system for home musicians and studios and finally the DigiTheatre and DigiTheatre DTS is an all-in-one home cinema audio systems. Whether youíre a music enthusiast or a music producer, VideoLogic has the right speakers to fit your needs.

Over a year ago, VideoLogic decided to extend its market in North America, mainly for the second biggest country of the continent: the United States. They only had a few specific products available at the time such as the New Crossfire 4.1 solution. Back in May, we received the official VideoLogic press release about their partnering with Voyetra Turtle Beach to Sell Sirocco and DigiTheatre Speaker Systems in the United States. What does this mean? Simply greater availability, and maybe even lower prices in the near future.

In todayís review, we take a closer look at VideoLogicís DigiTheater system. The DigiTheatre is a complete 6 piece home theater set featuring the latest Dolby Digital (AC-3) 5.1 surround sound.
