Packed up in a temporary suitcase, this HT system is probably one of the most shocking speaker packages we’ve laid eyes on. Each of the five speakers are in the shape of bulb shades and to top it all off, they all have bulb plugs at their bases. These bulb plugs hook up to a conical base, much like a standard bulb socket that you have in your room’s walls.
What Say AV
When technology as innovative as the stuff inside the Violet HT system hits you from all sides, you can’t help but marvel at the amount these guys have thought about an average consumer. This HT system is ridiculously easy to setup because you can set up the speakers any which way you find comfortable thanks to the remarkable setup algorithms. The sound isn’t what you’d call audiophile grade and at very loud volumes it can shred your ear drums from the mid-frequencies and up. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth your modest salary. Plus, you have a chance of telling Violet what you really think about their speakers because they are willing to come to your house and give you a demonstration right in your living room, free of cost. Now that’s called intelligent marketing for an extremely intelligent HT system.
