Enjoy a wide soundstage with these attractive desktop speakers
Liven up your work day with a pair NuForce S-X high-performance desktop speakers. Unlike conventional computer speakers with a flat vertical baffle, the S-X speakers use an angled waveguide baffle. So instead of projecting a stereo image straight ahead in a narrow "sweet spot," they deliver a wide, musically compelling soundstage you can enjoy even when you're ot planted in your chair. So go ahead, get up, and listen to your music as you move around your workspace.

Custom-engineered drivers for high-quality performance
The 3" drivers in these speakers use extremely thin, light paper cones for excellent transients and lifelike musical timbres. They're set in die-cast baskets for added stability, and have vented voice coils and powerful neodymium motor structures. This careful design helps them achieve a level of bass, high-frequency extension, linearity, and power handling that you wouldn't expect from speakers of their size.

Unique profile allows for greater placement options
You can position the S-X speakers a number of different ways and still enjoy a nice wide soundstage. Place them on your desk either upright or on their sides, or mount them on your wall facing up or down. Simply connect the speakers to an NuForce desktop integrated amplifier via special included RJ-45 connectors and you're ready to rock.

Why choose bookshelf speakers?

Bookshelf speakers may be small in size, but they can deliver surprisingly big sound. Some ultra-compact models even fit on a desktop. Most are right at home in tight spaces like shelves, so they're usually good choices for your home theater's rear channels. For the best performance, try placing bookshelf speakers on solid speaker stands to help the sound really "open up." If you want full bass impact, add a powered subwoofer and enjoy punchy sound that's as deeply satisfying as that of floor-standing speakers.
