    Turtle Beach Sonic Link Review


    (Page 1 of 6 )

    Until fairly recently, if you wanted to listen to your MP3 collection with a group of friends, you either had to set up a home theater system with its own PC, or take your friends into the computer room. Turtle Beach offers another option, the Sonic Link. Mephist0 examines the product and discovers a lot to like.

    Introduction

    Anyone who uses a computer for a long enough period of time will invariably end up with a large MP3/WMA/AAC collection. Whether the collection was built from ripping CDs, buying music (MP3 and other formats) from various online stores, or from illegal downloading, a fundamental problem with an MP3 collection is that you have to listen to them on your computer or portable MP3 player. That's not really an ideal situation if you want to play music for more than one person or in any room other than the computer room.

    Some have gotten around this problem by building Home Theater PCs (HTPC) or Media Center PCs. While it is a good solution, it offers many downsides. They now have a PC in their home theater (living/family room) that needs to be maintained, and isn't cheap to put together in the first place. Some manufacturers have made wired units that you connect to your stereo system that offer good sound quality but have the problem of being wired.

    It wasn't until recently that consumers had another choice. Turtle Beach is one of the first manufacturers to offer a 2.4GHz wireless audio system. The technology used is similar to that used by many wireless networks on the market. The Sonic Link has a transmitter connected to the PC's sound card to capture and transmit the audio, and a receiver connected to a stereo or a set of powered speakers anywhere in the house. Turtle Beach's Sonic Link offers great flexibility. Now it can be easy to connect your music to your stereo system without having to run wires though the home.

    So the company with the strange name (what does Turtle Beach have to do with audio?) is attempting to make a robust, easy to use system with good sound quality. Also, the system should be easy to install for the average person. You shouldn't need a computer science or engineering degree just to set it up. So how did they do? Let's take a look.
