Sharkoon M25-W ATX Midi-Tower with Virtual 7.1 Sound Revealed
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
Sharkoon has just revealed their latest ATX chassis series, and it’s got something we don’t think we’ve ever seen built into a chassis before! The Sharkoon M25-W features its own built-in virtual 7.1 surround sound hardware, which can be accessed via the front audio ports for those using a Windows PC.
Not to be sold on the audio trickery alone, the chassis looks pretty great too and comes available in both black and white variants, comes with a side panel window option, and clocks in at 45.0 x 21.0 x 46.5 cm (L x W x H), 6.5 kg.
The mainboard and the remaining components enjoy perfect cabling thanks to the cable outlets. Maximum length for graphics cards is 40 cm; power supplies with a length of up to 20.5 cm. Pre-installed dust filters protect installed hardware from contamination. Attached on the top panel is an additional pre-installed filter with magnetic fastener. The cableless front panel is easily removable and facilitates, for example, the installation of a 5.25″ drive bay. Two 120 mm fans in the front are factory installed, and pre-drilled holes for a 140 mm fan already exist. Optionally, three 120 mm or two 140 mm fans can be additionally mounted to the top panel. The front also offers the possibility to operate a 240 mm or 280 mm radiator, with a total height of 5.0 cm including fan.
It’s great to see something a little different hit the market, and given that the chassis is set to hit retailers this week with an MSRP of just 54390 EUR, with the budget version without the sound card at 44.90 EUR, it is exceptional value for money too.
