Roccat Juke Virtual 7.1 Surround Sound Review

Introduction


There are many ways to take control of your desktop audio, with many new motherboards hosting a range of cool features to enhance your audio performance, desktop amplifiers, and many USB headsets now feature their own built-in sound card for improved audio performance. The one thing a lot of these features have in common, however, is that they can often be quite expensive or at least carry a premium. Roccat looks set to address this with the release of the Roccat Juke, a simple look USB to dual 3.5mm adaptor that will help you add a new level of immersion to your multimedia.

“The ROCCAT® Juke Virtual 7.1 + USB Stereo Soundcard & Headset Adapter; the gaming-grade sound card that brings your stereo headset to the next level. Delivering premium quality virtual 7.1 surround sound, the Juke takes the form of a USB sound card compatible with a wide range of stereo gaming headset on the market.” – Roccat

While there are many software solutions out there, the built-in hardware of the Juke should potentially surpass that kind of processing thanks to its on-board hardware and it provides you with a way of hooking up a 3.5mm microphone and headset to a USB port, which could come in handy for those who need more connectivity options.

“The Juke’s feature-laden software suite enhances the sound card’s performance and lets you align each 7.1 surround sound speaker individually, for audiophiles who are serious about customization. With a low memory footprint, the driver software allows extensive refinements, so you can tweak your sound and set up your equalizer exactly to your specifications.” – Roccat

Packaging

The box is nice and compact, with a small window to show off the actual hardware, as well as a rundown of the main features.

Around the back, a quick run down of the spec, which includes a 20Hz – 20kHz sampling rate, USB 2.0 connection and 2 x 3.5mm jacks.

In the box, you’ll find a simple user guide, as well as the Juke USB to 3.5mm sound card.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
