The Philips PSC805 Aurilium turns your PC or notebook into a 5.1 channel digital audio powerhouse by connecting only one cable – USB (2.0). Simplicity in a complicated world. Includes Intelligent Media Processing (IMP) where the award winning Sound Agent 2 audio software uses automatic jack detection to determine which speaker configuration is connected (e.g. 5.1 channel, 4.1 channel, 2.1 channel, stereo, headphone), analyses the input signal to determine which source is being played, and automatically applies the appropriate algorithm for optimal sound reproduction at all times.
Computer owners who want to beef up their system's audio performance generally opt to install a new sound card. However, laptop owners don't always have that luxury, and installing a new card into desktop computers can be time-consuming and nerve-wracking. Fortunately, Philips has stepped into the void with its PSC805 Aurilium audio processor, which delivers rich 5.1-channel audio through your computer's USB 2.0 interface. The plug-and-play device draws its power from the serial bus, letting you enjoy complex surround sound when watching DVD movies, playing video games, and listening to digital music files. The processor packs a punch thanks to its 24-bit, 96 kHz processing, and it comes ready to decode a wide range of multi-channel digital formats, including Dolby Digital and DTS recordings, and output them via stereo, 2.1-channel, and 5.1-channel speaker systems. The supplied Sound Agent 2 software recognizes the speakers and adjusts the settings immediately, while also letting users make their own manual tweaks, such as adjusting the equalizer, adding 3-D effects, and more.
Fortunately for style-conscious users, the processor is housed in a fashionable chassis, with a removable foot that lets you stand it horizontally or upright. The device also includes optical and digital audio outputs, along with a headphone jack. The PSC805 is compatible with Windows 2000 and XP operating systems.
