Digital Audio has had a rough start.  Not many care what it is, or what it means and many speakers make bizarre claims about what signal they receive and how it is processed.  The Tech Report looks at Abits' iDome speakers, a set that includes 2 dual channel desktop speakers and a subwoofer.  These are true digital speakers, nothing in the chain is analog until the actual broadcasting of sound from the cones.  Read on to get a better idea of what is meant by Digital audio and a look at some impressive speakers.

"That probably sounds a little melodramatic, but consider this. The iDomes were designed from the ground up with digital input

in mind, and Abit has taken great care to ensure that they deliver every bit of the pristine quality of a digital bitstream to

your ears. That bitstream—digital audio in its purest form—can be provided by fancy sound cards and "free" integrated

motherboard audio alike, setting up the iDomes to challenge not only other speakers on the market, but the very need for a

discrete sound card as well.

And so the stage is set. Can the iDomes, when paired with integrated motherboard audio, challenge the output quality of the best

PC sound card on the market? Read on to find out."
