08/18/2011 - A musical back-to-school season with Hercules… The new Autumn/Winter 2011 multimedia speakers collection

London, August 18, 2011 - Hercules is pleased to unveil its brand-new Autumn/Winter 2011 collection of multimedia speakers. Now you can look forward to a return to school and work that’s easier and more pleasant, by enjoying some great-sounding music... Five new models are being unveiled, all combining attractive design, quality sound and a price that won’t hurt your wallet.


Hercules XPS 2.0 10 & 2.1 20 ARC WHITE: Give in to their curves...

Ushering in an entirely new design in the Hercules range, the XPS ARC WHITE speakers captivate users thanks to their streamlined and slightly "arched" shape. To perfectly complement every computer, Hercules has opted for a white lacquer finish on the back of the satellites, along with a black lacquer metal protective grille. Wideband speaker drivers, magnetic shielding, and wooden construction (the subwoofer of the XPS 2.1 20 ARC WHITE system): all of these elements combine to ensure well-balanced sound, allowing users to get the most out of their MP3s, DVDs or streaming videos.
XPS 2.1 20 ARC WHITE is composed of 2 satellite speakers, a subwoofer, and a wired remote with volume control and a Line input to connect an MP3 player or an additional audio source. It will be available from late August 2011, at a suggested retail price of €29.99 (VAT included).
XPS 2.0 10 ARC WHITE is the 2.0 version of the system described above. The volume control, on/off button and Line input are located on the left satellite speaker. It will also be available from late August 2011, at a suggested retail price of €24.99 (VAT included).

Satellite dimensions: 23.8 x 6.5 x 6.5 cm
Peak power: 16 W (XPS 2.1 20 ARC) and 5 W (XPS 2.0 10 ARC)


Hercules XPS Sound Bar USB: Clip on, listen, move...

A truly "Plug and Play" system, XPS Sound Bar USB connects to the computer via a single USB cable which transmits both the audio signal and power supply. Its innovative design is based on 4 active neodymium drivers and one passive rectangular driver, delivering high-quality audio which is miles ahead of the usual sound provided by laptop and ultraportable computers. It couldn’t be simpler to use: the volume level is controlled using the PC’s keyboard. Finally, for easy transportation alongside your computer, its USB cable is removable, and it comes with an included pouch for the speaker.
Hercules XPS Sound Bar USB will be available from late August 2011, at a suggested retail price of €34.99 (VAT included).
Dimensions: 25 x 5.5 x 3.5 cm. Peak power: 5 W


Hercules XPS 2.0 40 & 2.1 40 SLIM WHITE: Elegance and contrast.

The latest arrivals in the new Hercules collection: the white lacquer versions of two of the brand’s best-sellers, the XPS SLIM models (previously available with a black lacquer finish only). Available in 2.1 and 2.0 versions, the contrast and elegance of these new systems enchants users. They combine listening pleasure with visual appeal: the pleasure of listening to music and enjoying high-quality audio when watching movies on your computer, providing very consistent and powerful sound (32 W RMS for the 2.1 version); while their visual appeal lies in their slim design and elegance, featuring a tasteful white lacquer finish on the satellites and subwoofer, subtle chrome highlights and a trendy taupe color on the front of the satellites.
XPS 2.0 40 SLIM WHITE definitely remains the preferred choice for all users looking for a 2.0 system that takes up minimum space, and comes at a great price. For those in search of more power and stronger bass response, the XPS 2.1 40 SLIM WHITE is just what you’ve been looking for.

XPS 2.0 40 and 2.1 40 SLIM WHITE will be available from the end of the summer, at suggested retail prices of €29.99 and €54.99 (VAT included), respectively.

Satellite dimensions: 23.5 x 5.8 x 7.2 cm
Power: 10 W (XPS 2.0 40 SLIM WHITE); 64 W / 32 W RMS (XPS 2.1 40 SLIM WHITE)
