Banshee Media Speakers

Retailer Hammacher Schlemmer recently began shipping its unique Banshee iPod Media Speakers. Using a proprietary audio decoder, the company says it can simulate a surround effect across five connected 10W satellites. Hammacher Schlemmer also notes that the extra three speakers of the Banshee provide improved bass response over conventional stereo speakers. All Dock Connector- equipped iPods can connect to the system through an included but external cradle, but owners can optionally connect other sources through an auxiliary jack or add a subwoofer for dedicated bass output. Hammacher is already shipping the iPod Media Speakers in a piano-black finish for $130.

    Banshee is Great

    I bought this system a few months ago and I can not believe the clarity of the sound. The speakers are also very powerful with 50 watts of power. I set my iPod around 80% of the maximum volume (per their instructions) and my whole home is filled with music. I can not say enough good things about this product. I would recommend this product for anyone looking for great sound PERIOD.
