From the looks of the speakers, I am very anxious to see what the included software looks like and how well it works. The installation of the software is very easy; all you need to do is pop in the installation CD included in the packaging. When you do this, there will be an autorun option screen that comes up. On this screen, you are able to choose which language you wish to install the software as well as read the Readme. I am going to click the "Install" button. The GUI for this software looks very nice and very "techie". The next screen that will pop up is letting you know that you are about to install the software.
The rest of the screens are very typical of any software installation; you get the licensing agreement screen of which you must choose to accept the terms, then you get a screen asking you to choose the location to install, and finally you get a screen asking if you really want to go ahead with the installation. When the installation process is complete it will let you know and give you the option to launch the program when you click the "Finish" button.
When you click finish, you are taken to the main screen of the software, however you will also get a popup saying that you need to restart your computer before you do anything else. After you restart your computer, we will be able to take a look at the configuration.
Now it's time to configure this amazing looking software, right? Well lucky for us, we don't need to do anything to make the software work with the remote control. In the main screen, you are able to select which audio player you prefer to use. The included options are Windows Media Center, Windows Media Player, iTunes, WinAmp, RealPlayer, Yahoo! Music Jukebox and Pandora, but if there is another player you prefer, all you have to do is let the software know where the player's executable file is located.
Now let's listen to the speakers and see how they compare to my old Logitech x230 Speakers.
