The Genius SW-2.1 355 speaker set provides you with clear sound while you’re playing computer games, listening to music or watching a DVD. Each of the satellite speakers sports a good 2.5 watt bite, while the 4" subwoofer adds another 5 watts to the equation.
The speaker set is easy to set up and the 3.5 mm jack it uses means you can also hook it up to your MP3 or cellphone. All of the speakers have a quality look and feel about them, though the design is rather average, unlike some of the more stylish speakers we’ve tested recently like the Divoom IRIS-02 USB-powered speakers. There are separate controls for adjusting the volume and bass levels, making it easy to find the levels that suit you, but no handy volume control unit to that you can be placed on your desk. You have to find an open socket for the speaker set though, as it isn’t USB-powered, but uses a two point power plug.

You can get it from Computer Corporation (08616-08616) for a recommended retail price of R300.

Quality sound at an affordable price.
Looks rather basic.
