Product Specifications

Enjoy your favorite music, game or DVD with the Altec Lansing ADA890 Dolby Digital speaker system. This six-channel speaker system combines 120 watts of pure power, sophisticated electronic circuitry and patented speaker technology to bring crisp, powerful audio to your gaming arena or your new digital home theater. The detachable surround satellites create the ultimate surround sound multimedia environment! The ADA890 technologically advanced, THX-certified multimedia amplified speaker system features Dolby Digital and Pro Logic surround sound and stereo reproduction. Stereo sound can operate in a 2-speaker or 4-speaker configuration (stereo X 2), both modes also utilize the subwoofer. Quad mode provides 4-channel gaming and use of 3D positional sound cards. The unit is comprised of a subwoofer and two satellite speakers. This combination provides surround sound on a desktop by utilizing side-firing speakers. Surround modules can be detached from main satellites and placed to the sides of the listener for best surround sound performance, immersive, chest-thumping audio realism. Equalizer circuitry automatically resets to conform to the changes that take place when the speakers are separated. The satellite speakers are magnetically shielded and can be placed close to a monitor without disturbing images. Subwoofer frequencies are non-directional, therefore the subwoofer does not have to be located in any particular relationship to the satellite speakers. Placing it on the floor close to a wall, corner of a room, or under a desk gives excellent results. The main satellite speaker has an LCD display that shows the various conditions of operation. A master volume control is used to separately adjust bass, center, surround, and treble settings. Once the individual functions are set, the control reverts back to becoming a master volume control. A headphone jack is available for private listening. A remote control unit is supplied that can access all the manual functions, and a mute function that is not available when using the controls manually. The LED power indicator and a switch for audio signal diagnostic are provided to verify speaker operation and for troubleshooting the system in the event a malfunction is suspected. ADA890 is compatible with Sony PlayStation (1 and 2) and other popular gaming systems, personal and laptop computers, home stereo and portable music systems, and any other device that includes a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, 3.5mm line-out jack or RCA left and right outputs.
