What good is a high-definition picture without the high-definition sound?
Pioneer Electronics will be offering a
specially designed audio solution
for owners of Microsoft's latest console gaming system.
Pioneer's HTP-XGS1 is a 5.1 channel surround sound system custom designed for the XBOX 360 console. It has a total power output of 600W through 5 satellite speakers: front left/right, center, and rear left/right, plus a subwoofer for bass. The system has 2 optical inputs, 1 coaxial, an analog input for audio and an AM/FM tuner.
The system features internal calibration to perfect the sound output in any setting and has a separate display to show information about what the use is controlling. The entire system is controlled by a remote which also works with the gaming console and is designed to match the look of the XBOX 360 console.
Pricing on the HTP-XGS1 is expected to be set at around $500 this coming June. Pioneer has always been a key player in the home theater market namely with its Elite brand of audio/video equipment. Owners of the XBOX 360 console should be tempted at a fairly priced, if not affordable, high powered audio system such as Pioneer's offering.

Power output doesn't mean squat without considering other factors. How low is the noise floor? Does it take 1000W to crank out that 180db output or does it take 500W? And Pioneer is NOT king of car audio, they're just the most used. And their home audio is definitely (LOL) not the best nor is it even one of the best. You obviously have never heard Klipsch speakers.
