Philips Aurilium External USB 5.1 Surround Sound Center Review
Posted by Red Squirrel on January 20th 2004



With OEM prepackaged computers still making up the majority of today's computer market sales, we still see two channel setups holding their ground as the most popular soundcard specification in the everyday home computer. Now say you purchased an everyday computer with onboard or PCI card sound solution and after 6 months or a year you wanted to experience the fidelity of full 5.1 surround sound, what would be your options?
1.) You could purchase a surround sound PCI card and void your computer's warranty by installing the card yourself.
2.) You could have the computer manufacturer install the soundcard at a high installation fee and upgrade cost.
3.) You can find an audio solution that is relatively cheap, effective and won't involve you touching your computer other than one small connection.

If you are interested in option #3, Philips now has an external USB 2.0 compliant 5.1 sound center that can have you enjoying surround sound with a quick insertion of a USB cable.
