Bring Movies and Music from your laptop to life!

The USB Theater Sound Xperience provides a complete virtual audio-processing package that brings your movie and music experiences to life from a pair of stereo headphones or stereo speakers. It takes your 2-channel (stereo) audio and processes it with DTS Surround Sensation to create virtual surround sound through your 2 stereo speakers. Audio that is already encoded in 5.1-channels gains even more life with the LFE feature resulting in a three-dimensional wall of sound that exceeds the limitations of just two speakers, making one believe that sounds are occurring outside the boundaries of the two channels.

The IOGEAR USB Theater Sound Xperience allows you to enjoy DTS virtual surround sound anywhere, anytime. The classic transparent vacuum tube style design is small and suitable for your notebook and on the go needs. It is the perfect audio companion for people who listen to music or watch movies on their computers or laptops. Enjoy a virtual surround sound from your standard stereo headphone jack.

 

  • newegg DTS Surround Sound Just connect the USB Theater Sound Xperience to your computer’s USB 2.0 port and enjoy the virtual sound through your stereo headphones or stereo speakers. The Voice Clarification Technology enhances the signal clarity to improve the audio quality of dialog derived from Blu-ray Disc or standard DVD. The Bass Enhancement Technology restores the perception of fundamental low-frequency tones by dynamically augmenting harmonics, yielding improved bass performance without the additional hardware costs of adding a subwoofer. The Soundstage Expansion Technology broadens the soundstage and creates a phantom center channel for improved clarity and audio crispness.
  • newegg Duo Modes The USB Theater Sound Xperience features two modes: movie mode and music mode. The movie mode allows you to experience being right there in the middle of your favorite movies. You can listen to your music as it comes to life in total surround sound with the music mode.
  • newegg LFE Mixing The USB Theater Sound Xperience enables low-end frequencies to be mixed with front channels for superior performance.
  • newegg Classic Transparent Vacuum Tube Design The classic transparent vacuum tube style design is compact and suitable for your notebook and on the go needs. It also features soft blue LED vintage glow.
  • newegg Two 3.5mm Jacks The USB Theater Sound Xperience features two 3.5mm jacks for stereo microphone-in and stereo headphone-out.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks good

Pros: Works good, I did not really hear any sound improvement but the driver changes that drastically. The bass boosting is a nice feature, especially if you listen to dubstep.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: Don´t use on a USB hub

5 out of 5 eggsWorks grea

Pros: This is a hot little gadget, the blue vacuum tube glow is a sweet design. So as far as looks goes, its awesome. Luckily, it sounds pretty awesome too. Definitely an improvement over my dell vostro V130 laptop sound. The sound is good on its own, but once I installed the 5.1 software and pressed the NeoPC music button, it really came to life. Apparently it utilizes your CPU for sound processing, it works perfectly on my i3.

Cons: Word of caution! I initially had this plugged into a USB hub and all i heard was crackle, crackle, crackle! I thought it wasn't going to work, but then I had the genius idea to plug it directly into the laptop USB port and eureka, no problems after that.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat adapter and sound

Pros: My best results have been with a good quality stereo, 2-ch source. The soundfield through my Senheisser headphones is noticibly improved. Small size is great for my notebook.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: The sound driver for my notebook doesn't recover from hibernate without a reboot. No such issues with this adapter.
I was seeking better sound and a more stable device and achieved both with this adapter. Good job, Iogear!

2 out of 5 eggsNot at all impressed

Pros: None really..may be, the old vacuum tube looks and glow

Cons: This adapter is meant for experiencing DTS surround sound. I was hoping that it would some how make stereo sound clearer and distinct. But even after trying it out with a number of 5.1-channel test audio clips (from THX, DTS itself), I did not find it impressive at all. To me it does nothing but creates more noise, and cheap surround effect, but not DTS experience.

Other Thoughts: vacuum tube design with blue glow is kinda cool..but sound sucks

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for your experience. The GUADT51 is not capable of clearing up sound quality problems that may be present with your system, headphones or speakers. It takes your 2-channel (stereo) audio and processes it with DTS® Surround Sensation to create virtual surround sound through your 2 stereo speakers. Audio that is already encoded in 5.1-channels gains even more life with the LFE feature resulting in a three-dimensional wall of sound that exceeds the limitations of just two speakers, making one believe that sounds are occurring outside the boundaries of the two channels. Since the unit is backed by IOGEAR's 1 year warranty feel free to contact our customer support at 1-866-946-4327 or email us: support@iogear.com. Again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.
