Computer trade shows bring up some weird products, some good some bad, at Computex this year there was a little product that won the Jury special award this year Called the Soundbase G3, before we tell you more, here is a bit of info about the company that make the product.
“AddOn, a pioneer in Flash-related products, is the 1st USB Flash drive manufacturer in Taiwan – Pen Drive is our registered trademark. We have manufactured the 1st USB Pen Drive MP3 player and we had won several prizes as f.ex. The best USB MP3 player in PC-Direkt magazine in Germany, 2004. Add On’s Pen Drives are always cutting edge and feature the fastest in reading / writing speeds.
AddOn audio and Addon time branches of AddOn technology are dedicated to develop new upcoming technologies such as f.ex. GPS watch technology and small portable audio and cinema surround systems.
Add On’s ID design team is international and all of Add On’s products are with outstanding industrial designs – we have won also German Red Dot design award on 2005 for Add On’s Bluetooth ear piece.
By bringing the USB Drive into the market, we have seen the technology evolution of compressed music and nowadays is the age of what we called the “Modern Audio” Era:
The audio sources are portable audio sources for on the go, as: MP3/MP4 players, mobile phones with NAND gate ﬂash storages, iPod/IPhone devices and the most important Notebooks with high capacity of storage of hard disk drive and strong CPU power. The Music format is compressed music format. The higher capacity of the storage device, the cheaper of the storage media and the higher bandwidth of communication carrier results in higher compressed bit rate which can display good sound quality.
Modern audio era demands high portability, personal environment and good display sound quality devices in small format factor to meet personal demand. – AddOn succeeds in this technology.”
Today we are looking at Add On’s SoundBase G3 a Dolby/DTS ready laptop/notebook pad, that offers 5.1 Dolby sound in a little package aimed at portable users.. Now normally we would dismiss this kind of product as gimmicky as there could be no way a device this size could produce quality sound, but with a few awards already we decided to get one in and see if there is an answer to laptop users sound needs.
