09/20/2007 - Hercules announces its XPS* 2.0 and 2.1 Lounge speaker kits



London, 20 September 2007

Created for all who wish to enjoy their digital music in style and comfort, Hercules, the designer and manufacturer of entertainment and digital music hardware, now invites music lovers to enjoy aural and sensual pleasure with a new range of multimedia speakers: the XPS Lounge series. Offering stylish elegance, attractive curves, luxurious sound and an oh-so-useful remote control designed to house and connect to an iPod®* or any other MP3 player, Hercules sets the mood for lounging with its latest 2.0 and 2.1 speakers.

Graced with a personality of their own, the XPS Lounge speakers boast an attractive, stylish design. With gentle, curved lines and a simple black colour, they stand out with pride amidst the most tasteful decor. In addition, both satellites are wall-mountable.

The larger-than-average satellites feature a port located on the front face and the aural benefit is instantly noticeable: sounds in the medium range are truly optimised. The wooden subwoofer offered by the XPS 2.1 Lounge kit provides faithful and deep reproduction of bass tones, thanks to the Pass Band technology, which diffuses all low-range frequencies.
The XPS 2.1 Lounge literally immerses listeners in clear and consistent sound.

A truly unique addition to this kind of system, the remote control is designed to house and connect an iPod®, a Zune® or any other MP3 player - a line in connector is provided, allowing users to connect their player directly. The stylish wired remote control not only features bass and volume controls and an on/off switch, but also includes a headset connector, a microphone connector and a line in switch (which enables users to effortlessly switch from source audio (computer, ...) to the contents of their MP3 player).

The Hercules XPS 2.1 Lounge kit boasts a total 32 Watt RMS output (64 Watt peak power) - 18 Watt for the subwoofer and 2 x 7 Watt for the satellites), and will be available from October 2007 at the recommended retail price of £39.99 incl. sales tax. The Hercules XPS Lounge 2.0 will be available in November 2007 at just £19.99 incl. sales tax (recommended retail price).
