Razer Mako 2.1 Gaming Speakers

 

Of late at Tech 2.0 we've reviewed a lot of generic 2.1 speakers for the PC, and let's face it, who doesn't like a good dedicated product such as the one that's come in for review today? The brand at hand is the popular and ubercool Razer, which make...

Now for a reality check: the Mako costs Rs 22,350. This means it's targeted at high-end gamers with deep pockets. But as any serious PC gamer knows, quality stuff doesn't come cheap, and the Mako is definitely a great option for gaming audio bliss....

Razer Mako 2.1 Speaker System

 

You'll find the THX logo stamped on a host of products, but Razer's Mako is the first consumer speaker system that THX—led by THX Chief Scientist Laurie Fincham—has designed from the ground up.

Fabulous subwoofer, super-clean amp, intriguing industrial design

Amp isn't loud enough for large rooms; steep price/performance ratio

As much as we like the Mako’s style, subwoofer, and wide sound stage, the system as a whole can’t dislodge the sub-less Audioengine 5 from its roost on our Best of the Best list.

This premium PC audio system is well worth the splurge.

Powerful bass ; Crystal clear audio ; Excellent gaming, movie, and music experiences

Very expensive ; Requires more space than other desktop speakers

The Razer Mako is our favorite high-end speaker set. Even though it requires a fair amount of space to set up, anyone with discerning ears will appreciate the bass and clarity that these speakers offer.

The 2.1 Mako speaker system delivers clear, thunderous sound, but it comes at a price.

Intriguing design. Very powerful output. Booming low end. Excellent clarity without distortion at high volumes. Multiple inputsincluding one on controller.

Very expensive. Wired controller can be slow and unresponsive. Limited listening "sweet spot."

Razer's Mako 2.1 computer speaker system was codesigned with THX, featuring technology that uses desktop surfaces to disperse sound. The result is impressive power and clear, pleasing audio.

Razor Mako 2.1 Advanced Desktop Audio System

 

This pricey two-speaker system sounds as good as some 5.1 speaker kits.

Solid sound reproduction, Good surround sound virtualization

No optical inputs, Hogs up desktop space

And it sounds almost as good. For fashion-forward audiophiles, it's well worth the money. But you might want to clear out your cluttered desktop and shag carpeting first

Razer Mako 2.1 PC Sound System Review

 

Multi-channel audio has long since been implemented in current PC titles, but few users can afford the money and space of incorporating a 5.1 channel ...

But any frustrations incurred by the limited inputs will be quickly forgotten once users fire up the Mako's THX certified speakers. As we previously noted, the Mako's satellites and sub are downward firing, which bounces the audio off of the surface of...

Razer Mako 2.1 THX Certified Multimedia System

 

Razer and THX have teamed up together to design the Razer Mako 2.1 THX Certified Multimedia System. This sound system offers OmniDirectional speakers which fill the entire room with surround sound. The Mako comes equipped with an all-in-one touch...

Superb sound quality, - Perfect for many sound uses, even for the non audiophile, - THX Certified, - High-end ClassHD digital amplifier, - OmniDirectional soundstage

Bass quality reduced on carpet, - Touch sensitive control pod not so sensitive

The Razer Mako 2.1 THX Certified Multimedia System is overall a great system. It supplies top notch sound quality across the entire room while still only being a 2.1 sound system. Even though through Razer the price is a hefty $399.99 I still think it...

In the audio realm, Razer's latest sound system, the Mako, strives to achieve a true gaming experience for gamers, by gamers, with Lucasfilm's THX support.

Product Specifications

The Razer Mako 2.1 bi-amplified multimedia speaker system is co-developed by the audio scientists of gaming audio leader Razer and audio industry pioneer THX. It is the first desktop speaker system to incorporate the THX Ground Plane and THX Slot Speaker technologies, as well as ClassHD Digital Amplifier Technology, which enable rich, omnidirectional audio effects that will redefine the desktop sound experience. The innovative downward-firing design of the THX Ground Plane and THX Slot Speaker technologies eliminates distortion caused by the 'desk-bounce' phenomenon encountered with normal speaker systems, to create a rich, omnidirectional soundstage. The high-end ClassHD digital amplifier technology intelligently manages the amplifier power to achieve greater power efficiency, lower distortion levels, and markedly better sound quality. The bi-amplified 50W satellites with DSP control deliver exceptional audio quality comparable to recording studio standards.
