Sometimes when you see partnership branding or a label on an audio product it's nothing more than that, sometimes its a little bit more. With the new MSI Immerse GH61 wired gaming headset seeing the ONKYO brand there on the box was a little confusing, and very interesting. Because there was also mention of an ESS Sabre DAC.
Right, so what does all that mean? Well, it points to audio components that could potentially offer up a lot better and more impressive sound than the $169 AUD price-tag would allude to.
The drivers, aka speaker technology, comes from Onkyo - the well known and respected Japanese home audio specialists that have been around since the days of vinyl and valve amps. Secondly the ESS Sabre DAC as part of the USB PC connector, is fairly high-end in terms of audio signal and amplification.
