Asus Cine5 Five-Channel Speaker

Asus Cine5 Five-Channel Speaker




Asus claims their Cine5 soundbar is the world’s most compact 5-channel speaker and by the looks of it, sounds like it has some truth to it. Go take a closer look at the Asus Cine5 after the jump.

Announced back in March, this is probably the first speaker system I’ve ever seen coming out of Asus’ doors.

The Asus Cine5 is actually just a single unit with multiple drivers and comes in a curvy, glossy-black design. The front grills are covered in fine, dark acoustic fabric while two hollow tubes are positioned at both ends of the unit (probably to help create that deep bass).


 

The speaker has a total power output of 15 watts (RMS) with a frequency response between 80~20Khz. The 3.5mm jack is found at the back, along with a dedicate heaphone jack and 3 more audio ports to extend the system to more speakers (front, center-sub, rear). The unit comes with a set of 4 metal and 4 rubber stands that screws into the base.

The Cine5 looked really nice but that doesn’t end there — the sound quality is pretty good, great volume range that does not seem to distort even when you crank the dial to the top with decent enough bass (not really a deep bass but significantly noticeable). The surround-sound effect (actually it’s just multi-directional) is evident in smaller rooms but you don’t feel it when used in open spaces or larger rooms.

Still don’t have info on local pricing but I’m sure this won’t go cheap.

    I wish they make a portable speakers with decent quality (especially the bass) with rechargeable battery. All I can see are speakers for iPod that are needed to be plugged-in. If there are its too expensive.

    As for this Asus, it kinda reminds me of the Edifier i-F330.

    I have a similar gadget.. It’s called Banshee [ http://www.amazon.com/Banshee-Surround-Speaker-System-Players/dp/B000H7F254 ]

    I bought it for less than 2,000 pesos. I bet this Asus would be priced 3-4 times more.

    I don’t know if this is the same tech, but I use a Yamaha YSP-3000 soundbar in my bathroom and its very nice. Good surround effects for movies while in the jacuzzi.
