BIOSTAR, maker of embedded/IPC solutions, graphics cards, and motherboards has introduced Intel’s next generation Haswell based motherboard, the Hi-Fi Z97WE. It comes with many BIOSTAR in-house features such as “Hi-Fi” audio technology.
It looks like we get to see another Z87 motherboard! Today we have BioStar’s upcoming Hi-Fi- Z87X 3D motherboard which has been pictured and detailed by Playwares. Besides being made for Intel’s upcoming 4th generation Haswell processors the Hi-Fi- Z87X 3D motherboard features an integrated independent audio power design with a built-in amplifier.
Okay, I’m not going to lie, when Bob asked me to review a set of Genius speakers I was quite skeptical. Let’s just be nice and say Genius doesn’t have the best reputation for producing/selling the best quality speakers. Hell, Genius isn’t that many letters away from ‘generic’ and the fact that Apple employees are also called ‘Genius’s’ (I HATE APPLE) gave these speakers a sour taste before I even saw the box.
I did a bit of research on these speakers after seeing the un-boxing video a week or so ago on the ThinkComputers website and I was surprisingly impressed. The company’s website claims “Genius brings all serious listeners a new set of speakers, SP-HF2020, to experience magnificent sound.” Let’s see how accurate that statement is and if my first impression holds true.
