Cambridge SurroundWorks 200

 

In a perfect world everyone would have, among other things, space for five or more speakers to create their own home theater. But many homes–whether it's a tiny studio apartment in Manhattan or a bonus room in California–can't accommodate...

Very simple setup; good sound quality

Small buttons on the remote control; does not support WMA playback

The SurroundWorks 200 is designed for those who want a quick, easy and compact solution for music and video playback.

Cambridge SoundWorks SurroundWorks 200 Virtual Home Theater System

 

Virtual surround is nothing new: Some people don't have the space, the know-how, or perhaps the ideal room layout for a pair of surround speakers for true 5.1-channel audio. Wireless surrounds are an option for some. But even those need a place to...

The SurroundWorks 200 is definitely about absolute convenience, with just three boxes and two audio cables for the illusion of 5.1-channel soundtracks from DVDs. Incorporating Binaura's patented technology makes this trick a reality, but, along the...

This gets a 9 if you want good sound for movies but don't want 6 speakers. Compared to a HTIB 5.1 you get most of the surround but the gratuitous sound effects that originate beside or behind you aren't there. If you want the helicopter sounds to fly...

Full sound, decent effects, easy setup

Not for loud music, ditch the remote

Cambridge SoundWorks - SurroundWorks 200

 

I have two other surround sounds systems in my house, one in my family room 5.1 DD one in my basement 7.1 DD and love them. When I decided to buy a 32inch LCD for my master bedroom I had to get a good DVD player and was looking for surround as well but...

Crisp sounds, excellent bass, easy set-up, great input options

Product Specifications

Cambridge SoundWorks is proud to present the next evolutionary step in home theater technology, SurroundWorks 200. The beauty of SurroundWorks is that it simplifies surround sound by using only three easy to set up pieces. These include a multi-channel center speaker and a compact, high performance subwoofer. These are matched with an elegant, DVD/AM/FM control center. The entire system is wired using just two connecting cables. Engineered to recreate surround sound with "invisible" speakers, SurroundWorks is the perfect solution for consumers looking to add surround sound to any room without any fuss. It's installation and user friendly - easy to place, easy to connect and easy to use. SurroundWorks' main speaker eliminates the need for mounting, wiring and finding space for multiple speakers by using one easy to hook up and locate single-point array - no rear speakers required. It can be wall mounted, placed on a TV or on a tabletop, and connects with a single cable to the powered bass module. The system's compact powered subwoofer delivers tight, deep bass in a compact enclosure that's less than 1 cubic foot. The bass module contains a 225-watt multi-channel BASH amplifier and patented circuitry that makes SurroundWorks' spacious 3-dimensional soundscape possible from such a simple system.
