Almost all of us are used to knowing Abit as one of the largest mainboard manufacturers. However, the company has recently decided to try themselves in the digital multimedia acoustics field having launched three products: iDome DS 500 stereo speakers, iDome SW 510 subwoofer and AirPace wireless access point.

Today I am going to take a first glance at the iDome DS 500 speaker system that we received from Abit for review.

Closer Look

At first, let's take a closer look at the technical specifications of the newcomer.

Manufacturer

Abit

Model name

iDome DS 500

Type

Speaker system without the subwoofer

Supported frequency range

20-20,000Hz

Output power

50W RMS (25W per channel)

Satellite diameter

4" ?midwoofer. 1" ?tweeter

Output resistance (impedance)

4 Ohm

Signal-to-noise ratio

86dBA

Input/Output ports

SPDIF and RCA (In/Out)

Dimensions

186x135x250mm

Here are some features of the system:

  • Built-in “Class D?digital amplifier;
  • 25W x 2 output power;
  • Integrated uGuru technology;
  • 24bit / 192kHz DAC;
  • SFX Mode;
  • Magnetic screened casings.

So, iDome DS 500 is an acoustic stereo system that consists of two fine-looking satellites. The satellite casings are made of hard plastic and sit on transparent decorative stands at the bottom. Note that the stand of the right satellite is highlighted with a red LED, which can be turned on/off at the back of the satellite. I have to say, however, that it looks very cool in a dark room.

The satellites feature phase-inverter acoustic design with a port on the front panel. Each speaker is equipped with a 4-inch mid-frequency diffuser and a 1-inch tweeter. Inside the casings are stuffed with synthetic cotton. The claimed output power of 25W per channel is quite sufficient to ensure comfortable musical or gaming experience.

If you feel that this system lacks some bass, you can always acquire an additional Abit iDome SW510 subwoofer that has been specifically designed for work with this speaker system, but will also fit for any other one. Unfortunately, I didn't have the chance to estimate the depth and basis of the bass generated by this subwoofer this time).
