We’ve heard some of what Hercules has to offer in the budget audio spectrum, and it ain’t bad.

That’s why this new $99 5.1 system is an eye-catcher.

The XPS 5.1 70 Slim is a computer speaker system designed for movie watchers and gamers. They’re ultra-slim and have two drivers per satellite for mids and highs.

The all-wood subwoofer promises to add some thump also.

It’s 75 total watts RMS (4 x 7.5W for the front and rear satellites, 15W for the center speaker and 25W for the subwoofer) but the big thing is that it’s under $100. It’s hard not to at least be curious.
