Some people like their PC gaming experiences big. They spend big money on big games, big monitors and big gaming accessories but suffer from SSS (small sound syndrome). Well, listen up! Altec Lansing has released the Expressionist™ Ultra (MX6021), a distinctively styled and powerful three-piece home speaker system for computers, MP3 players and more that delivers 200W RMS. And with this quality of sound, it won’t be just the gamers taking advantage of all that power. Consumers who keep their music on their PC will also benefit from these speakers.

The Expressionist Ultra is one of Altec Lansing’s most powerful computer audio systems and is sure to rival Logitech’s Z-2300 set and Razer Mako THX certified systems.

Its boom comes from five digital amplifiers powering five separate drivers. Each speaker driver – the 3-inch midranges, the 1-inch neodymium tweeters and the 6.5-inch long-throw subwoofer - is individually fired and powered. The result is sound you can feel and is designed to take music, movies and games to a whole new level.

“We take pride in understanding our customers’ wants and needs, and in creating products that fit their lifestyle,” said Adrian Bedggood, Altec Lansing’s Consumer Marketing Manager. “These days, more people are keeping all of their music and entertainment on their computer. So sound quality is very important to them. They want an audio system that sounds great and plays loud without distorting their favorite artist, movie scene or video game. The Expressionist Ultra speaker system fits the bill beautifully.”

No need to hide these speakers, either. They’re stylish enough to be displayed on any desktop. The visible drivers on the satellites are set into a translucent bezel and the subwoofer features a distinctive trapezoidal design that breaks up standing waves and delivers the deep bass.
