Griffin Announces FireWave – Surround Sound for Macs
August 23, 2006
Griffin Technology Inc., announced today that they have begun shipping FireWave, their affordable 5.1 Surround Sound solution for Macintosh.
FireWave extends to Mac users the ability to affordably and effectively upgrade their sound systems by way of their FireWire ports — with spectacular results.
FireWave’s small size makes it easy to incorporate into any computer setup, and makes it portable enough for use with laptops. FireWave gets its power through the FireWire connection, so there are no separate cables, batteries, or power supplies to tote. FireWave’s extra FireWire port lets you daisy-chain other FireWire devices, so it won’t hog your FireWire port.
FireWave lets you enjoy Dolby Digital encoded DVDs in 5.1 surround, or use Dolby Prol Logic II to make any audio source alive, whether from iTunes, QuickTime, or streaming audio. In addition, FireWave’s support of multi-channel playback from cross-platform OpenAL games like World of Warcraft and Unreal Tournament make it a must-have for gamers.
Griffin FireWave is priced at $99.99 USD, and is now available at www.griffintechnology.com, and wherever quality Mac or FireWire accessories are sold.
