When the Audyssey brand comes to mind, most home theater fans will immediately think of the company's surround formats and the calibration software that is built into many mid to high-level AV Receivers, but that may change as the company releases more and more consumer products like the Lower East Side Media Speakers.
Aimed at the computer and gamer market, the Lower East Side Media Speakers are constructed with dual .75" silk-dome tweeters, 3.5" woofers, and 4" passive bass radiators. What makes them particularly unique is the inclusion of a digital optical audio input, in addition to the standard 3.5 mm stereo line in, for increased compatibility with HDTVs, streaming devices like AppleTV, gaming consoles like the PS3, Blu-ray players, and cable boxes. Also included, as one would assume with any Audyssey product, is a host of proprietary sound-enhancement software, including Audyssey Smart Speaker Technology. Together, both speakers weight around 7 lbs, and will cost you just under $200 when they ship later this year.
