LaCie USB PC multimedia speakers

August 14, 2019

Have a look at these really really cool portable
speakers from the folks at LaCie, and what makes these more unique than most,
is not only their physical because they actually look really really cool, but usually manufacturers
don’t put a whole lot of thought into the design of their speakers. These are actually designed
by Neil Poulton. If you’re a big fan of Neil’s you’ll be a big
fan of these speakers. They are USB powered, and they will actually
show up as a USB audio device on your system as well. So you don’t have to plug them in like
the headphone or speaker output on your computer and, you don’t have to plug them into a power
source, because they will be powered by the USB Bus on the system.
They’re completely portable, they do come with a… Portable case here, you
will throw your speakers in these and take them on the road with you, anywhere you go. And they’re
also really really easy to set up. They don’t require drivers. Literally all you have
to do is plug the USB port, the USB plug which is built into the bottom, right
here you can see there’s a spool on the bottom, USB port plug is right here, and this plugs
into the USB port on your system, on the other speaker you’ll see another spool,
this simply connects the 2 speakers together. So you pull this out here, hook this into
the speaker over here, right here at the bottom you’ll see, it’s very
easily labeled too. See, it says “Speaker” right there. Right there.
So you just plug in the speaker right here, and you’re good. Literally that’s all you need
to do. Once you have it plugged into your system you go into your Windows control panel, you
choose to use these speakers as your audio output device, and that’s all you have to do.
No CDs, no drivers, they’ll work in any system that you plug them into, you don’t have to plug
them in for power, you don’t have to plug them into the headphone port, they’re completely
portable and they actually look, really really sharp. So you can see that the folks
at LaCie have put a lot of thought, into the design and the sound of these. They
actually sound really really good. Really low power, just 2.5 watts, but,
they actually sound really good, and that’s due to the tubular design on these,
you know… You know, not like tubular cool, but tubular..
Everyone’s really disappointed that I brought that joke out. I can see that, ’cause it’s just
not funny. Doesn’t really matter though. So check out
these tubular speakers! From the folks at LaCie, right now, really
sound good, really look cool, which is something that’s rare. You don’t find
small compact speakers that look cool, very often. So the USB powered speakers from
LaCie. Right here. To get more info on these LaCie USB speakers
go to any of the retailers you see here, and type in: L17-1122.

    Everything is going USB now my concern for the future all be it a small one they doesn't effect me now is that you will have so many USB devices that require power that you will need a massive PSU.
