soundscience™: Antec Does Audio

Antec has a long history in the PC components market.  We’ve been making cases, power supplies and more for 25 years.  Every new product is a challenge, every launch is unique in its own way – but this is different.  With the introduction of our audio brand soundscience, and our rockus™ 3D | 2.1 speaker system, we are in exciting new territory.

rockus SatelliteThere’s no secret to making a speaker or amplifier.  Anyone can do it – and they do.  What separates great sounding speakers from run-of-the-mill ones is investing the time to get it right.  After two years of evolving prototypes, constant fine-tuning, and hundreds of hours listening, we have arrived. I’m going to go out on a limb here and tell you that anyone who says there’s a magic equation for great sound doesn’t know what they’re talking about – it’s a continuous process of tuning, listening, and tuning again.  There’s just no substitute for the human ear. All the classic audio gear, that stuff you see in the background at Abbey Road in the 60s and the hi-fi amplifiers of yore with huge tubes, has quirks and eccentricities.  That’s what makes them classics, and it takes time to create a classic.

In the beginning we envisioned our first speakers as the perfect audio system to pair with our gaming and performance enclosures.  What we ended up with, the rockus 2.1 system, not only accomplishes that goal but works equally well as a small home theater setup or a gaming console companion. The result? A sleek, well-balanced compact speaker system solution that’s easy to use and delivers a crisp, powerful audio experience to a wide-range of users.

The rockus SubwooferIn the process of developing the rockus speaker system, we relied heavily on our core expertise in enclosure engineering as well as PSU design.  The years of making PC enclosures with a heavy focus on quiet acoustic performance (Sonata, Performance One) gave us a unique perspective on speaker design.  Certain materials vibrate or rattle easily, which can cause distortion and a loss in audio quality.  To avoid this, we chose very early in the development process to construct the rockus satellites entirely out of anodized aluminum – something no other PC speaker manufacturer does.  Our experience with power supplies, like the EarthWatts series, helped us create an amplifier that is both powerful and efficient.

The rockus speaker system is only the beginning.  We have some amazing products in development right now and I can’t wait (but have to) to tell you about them.

Over the next few weeks I’ll be going over the features of the rockus in detail through several blog posts.  In the meantime, visit for more info and details.
