Everything USB is pleased to announce our in-depth IOGear Wireless USB 720p Video / Stereo Audio Kit review.
One of the fastest changing sectors of the electronics industry for the past ten years has been the evolution of wireless technology. From analog to digital 3.5G mobile networks to wireless networking and the proliferation of Bluetooth, I have been spoiled by the pace of technological advances. Home theater has not been standing still either, with HDTV becoming mainstream and at price points ever lower and more accessible. IOGear’s Wireless USB Audio Video Kit attempts to answer the question perhaps few were asking: can an HD audio and video system be freed from the shackles of cables and eliminate more cable clutter? Follow me on a tour as I get geeky.

TITLE: ASUS Xonar HDAV1.3 Slim Sound Card @ Benchmark Reviews

DESCRIPTION: You don’t have to be an audiophile to appreciate the enhanced surround sound effects from Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD Master Audio found on most Blu-ray Disc movie discs over the standard Dolby Digital or DTS formats found on standard DVD movie discs. The lossless audio compression formats and/or the two extra channels of sound output really adds a significant amount of realism to the whole movie watching experience. The problem is most HTPC owners don’t have the ability to experience these enhanced formats due to a lack of sound cards on the market that can support these formats. Benchmarkreviews has the ASUS Xonar HDAV 1.3 Slim sound card that does just that. Benchmark Reviews have put it through a series of tests and have determined whether HTPC owners can rejoice or not.
