The New XPS Ultra Slim Speaker From Hercules

Every product is going slim today. From laptops to Netbooks to HDTVs, almost everything seems to be made smaller. So the public rightly expected an ultra slim speaker line from Hercules, a company that is unofficially noted as the pioneer and advocate of slim products at least from the amount of research it devotes to such designs. Perhaps the company’s research has not been in vain – the new XPS has been reputed to be the smallest satellite speakers on the market.

The design allows it to be placed in areas or rooms with limited space. More so, it is compatible with several appliances such as with PCs, gaming consoles, TV’s, and CD/DVD players and therefore gains much wider acceptance.

XPS Ultra Slim Speaker From Hercules

The XPS speakers were made to achieve outstanding aesthetic effects. The slim design and the black lacquer color tomes provide an ultra modern decoration for the living room. It was made to blend with modern home theater design so that they serve as replacement speakers or extra ones for these systems. Perhaps they were made to save space too. The speakers are made from wood to emphasize an ecofriendly product.

Despite their slim appearance, there is much power in the XPS. Users have a total of 10 Watts power. This makes the system an ideal choice for gamers, home theater enthusiasts and portable MP3 owners who want to play their sound files over an external speaker.

One minus for the XPS Slim is the wired mini remoter. In these days when even CD players have wireless remotes, how can one pardon Hercules for a corded remote? Well, there may be a reason for them doing so. Maybe a wireless remote is easy to lose. Or an advanced remote may have added more cost to the speaker and therefore made the set more expensive.

  1. Still i am using creative speaker in my desktop and those are working very nice. But this speaker seems also reliable and with good feature.

  2. these sound clearty is really nice……….

  3. Hey, friend are you ok, Don’t worry i am asking just like that because you still not updated your site.

  4. As the name suggest, I think the speaker should be like Hercules in sound quality.

  5. Most mics use an XLR cable so I’m going to assume that’s what you have. XLR is a 3 pin connector. The mic will plug into the mixer. The mixer will have MAIN OUT (left and right), you connect the Mixer Main Outs to the left and right INPUTS on the amplifier. Then you connect the Speakers to the OUTPUTS of the amplifier. The mixer will control the gain of the mic to the amp.

  6. Hi,Nice Post.It was good sogn library. the speakers and almost the best out of all the nokia/sony/02.3rd best music phone.

  7. I only have my laptops built in speakers :(

  8. if you just mean normal speakers then get any speakers you want b/c the phone jack is the same as a computer..

  9. Speakers meant for use with a computer have a small amp built in. If you still have the amp for you home theatre system this would be ideal.

  10. To connect the computer to the amp you will need a cord that has a male headphone jack on one end and a red and white RCA composite jacks on the other. These cost about $5 at an electronics store.

  11. Thank goodness someone has answered I even resorted to emailing sony and they haven’t even replied.

  12. Wow! Looking very nice and the sound quality features are very cool! that’s a perfect product.

  13. The mixer will have MAIN OUT (left and right), you connect the Mixer Main Outs to the left and right INPUTS on the amplifier. Then you connect the Speakers to the OUTPUTS of the amplifier. The mixer will control the gain of the mic to the amp.

  14. well the speakers are gonnah go so i would sell it or take it to a pro and get it fixed it will run u about 20-25 bucks.my cousin had his done.what caused it was turning the speakers up to high or listing to loud music like a heavy metal band.

  15. Most sound bars are all-in-one systems. The amp inside is hard-wired for the internal speakers and that is all.

  16. On Windows XP (maybe other versions too) you can have multiple input devices and/or multiple output devices. Goto: Start->Control Panel->Sounds and Audio Devices->Audio (tab) -> and select the appropriate, “Sound Playback” device. There is a “test hardware” under one of the other tabs (sound?). With this utility, try a few things and it can help you get you thing going.

  17. Most mics use an XLR cable so I’m going to assume that’s what you have. XLR is a 3 pin connector. The mic will plug into the mixer. The mixer will have MAIN OUT left and right, you connect the Mixer Main Outs to the left and right INPUTS on the amplifier. Then you connect the Speakers to the outputs of the amplifier this is very nice voice.

  18. I just got a brand new XPS M1530 it’s got a good video card. It has a hdmi port on the side.if I got a hdmi cord would I get sound.good site for sound.

  19. I am planning on getting the k3 and it looks good to me. I like videos so i hope it has videos. maybe u could have the answer to that one. It costs $120 for 4 gb with 1000 songs and $100 for 2gb with 500 songs. it has a scroll wheel like the ipod which is wut i like about it especially.
    :lol:

  20. I know you want a Canon, but the Olympus 850 SW is one of the only digital cameras that challenges the seemingly absurd notion of water and electronics without using a housing. You can also make movies with it. It is extremely fun to use and can be had for under $250.

  21. The gain of the mic to the amp. Be sure to have your amps turned up, make sure everything is turned on and properly grounded. If this doesn’t work, you may have a bad mic, a bad cable, a bad mixer, a bad signal cable (from the mixer to the amp) a bad amp or bad speaker wire.
