Looks like Hercules have expanded their line of speakers today with the announcement of the XPS 2.0 35 USB and the XPS 5.1 Slim.  The XPS 2.0 35 USB’s seem like a cool choice for traveling and come withe their own carrying case for on the go type styles.  The XPS 5.1 Slim’s pretty much add extra speakers to their XPS 2.1 Slim’s and a connecting center speaker to make a very affordable 5.1 surround system.


Both systems are set to arrive in June and are priced at $20 for the USB’s and $100 for the 5.1 system.  Having liked my experience with Hercules products in the past, I’m eager to give these a try.
