We all know Antec for making great PC cases and power supplies. We all know someone with an Antec case and that just shows the quality of their products. Antec knows a lot about making cases and power supplies, but when I heard they were going to making speakers a was a little bit skeptical. We have seen so many companies just use an OEM to get into another market, and what comes out is a very poor product. Luckily Antec is not one of those companies, they introduce you to Soundscience an Antec subsidiary that is set to produce audio and video lifestyle products. Their first product is the Rockus 3D 2.1 Speaker System and we have them up on the testing block today.
