Computer speakers are usually one of the PC components that are not usually given much attention. It’s a peripheral so as peripherals go, it is set aside for other upgrades the computer owner feels are more essential. But if you use your computer a lot and also use it for entertainment purposes like listening to music or watching videos then a good pair of speakers is essential.
The Genius brand has been around for quite a while. It’s a very familiar brand in computer peripherals and has built a reputation for being the brand budget-conscious buyers get. Genius though is not known for high quality in their products. They do have some reliable products but they’re not in the high end segment.
Genius is trying to get into high end sector of the market and they’re doing it with speakers. The company has announced that it will be releasing the SP-HF2020 Speaker System, which the company touts as hi-fi quality speakers. This means these are speakers that produce great sound and will catch the attention of audiophiles.
The Genius SP-HF2020 consist of two tower speakers with each one containing a 1 inch tweeter for great treble sounds. It also has a 3 inch close frame speaker that has the role of reproducing great mid range sounds, and two 3 inch open frame speakers that have been designed to help in producing low and rich bass frequencies. The speakers are not just plain vanilla speakers. It actually has a number of ports. These ports are then used to attach the speakers to various kind of devices – think media dock, only with humongous speakers this time instead of the diminutive ones you associate with those portable docks. You can even connect these speakers to your gaming console or to your TV if you want the additional throwing power of a bigger speaker.
The SP-HF2020 comes with a remote for easier controls and has three built-in equalizer presets.
