12/03/2009 - Welcome to the world of mini 5.1 USB sound cards: Gamesurround Muse XL Pocket LT3 from Hercules®.

09/12/03 - Hercules, the digital audio specialist, has revamped its "pocket-sized" 5.1 USB sound card, a best-seller in its category, launching a new, even smaller solution, featuring optimized performance: Gamesurround Muse XL Pocket LT3.

Just 7cm in diameter and weighing in at a mere 60g, this new external audio solution is as compact as a mouse designed for laptop computers! Its mini size makes it the ideal companion for laptops and netbooks. Just plug it into a USB port on your system - the device is USB-powered and requires no external power source - and start enjoying breathtaking 5.1 surround sound in DVD movies and games on your computer (PC or Mac®*).

Hercules has optimized this new model by helpfully placing the headphone output, microphone input and Line input (allowing users to directly connect an MP3 player) right on the front of the unit. On the back of the device are the front, center and rear speaker connectors, for 5.1 surround sound immersion with perfectly-designed ergonomics.

Adjusting the volume couldn’t be easier, using the two large buttons placed right on top for easy access. Another bonus is the instant Mute function: just press the "+" and "-" buttons simultaneously to switch muting on or off!

In terms of performance, the Muse XL Pocket LT3 features Xear 3D technology for 3D positional audio, compatible with Microsoft® DirectSound®, DirectMusic®, and EAX® 1.0 and 2.0. It also includes software that lets you adjust your sound card’s settings and effects quickly and intuitively.

Hercules Gamesurround Muse XL Pocket LT3 comes bundled with a handy headset, and will be available at a suggested retail price of just £29.99 (VAT included) from mid-December 2009.
