More about MA-1EX

The MA-1EX's innovative design offers superb sound quality by completely bypassing your internal soundcard. The MA-1EX works as a soundcard itself, offering high-quality D/A converters and superior shielding from electrical interference of other components. The MA-1EX can even act as a simple S/PDIF optical output and headphone amp for your computer.

The MA-1EX speakers are ideal for any notebook computer user for use in presentations for small groups or the music enthusiast who wants better sound quality and more volume from his/her notebook without carrying a large, bulky set of speakers.
