(1) Pioneer HTS-GS1 5.1 Surround Sound System for Xbox 360
Description: (click show to see it)
The Pioneer 5.1 Surround Sound System for Xbox 360 has one goal in
life: to produce quality sound. It has a pretty XBox finish, soft as a
Southern accent, but don't just judge it by the way it looks. Judge it
by the 600 Watts of total system power, the Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1
Surround sound processors. That's enough output to drown out the noise
from next door. Why are there three helicopters up there, anyway? Are
they trying to capture Batman?
Anyway, the Pioneer 5.1
Surround Sound System for Xbox 360 has the 6 Channel digital
amplification that today's market demands. Oh, that market! It just
keeps you in the spotlight, no matter how hard to try to escape! It
makes you wish you could just drive over a photographer. But don't
worry, you'll be able to use the ultra high-end calibration microphone
to make things perfect. When properly used, the Auto MCACC setup will create a balanced sound like nothing you've ever heard. Combined with the Sound Retriever DSP
technology, made specifically to bring out the best in your games or
your music, you'll be ready for the fun of having your little sister
stop by for that pickles and ice cream jamboree!
good systems, you're able to position the Front and Center speakers
away from each other without having a screaming match. I mean, really,
if the 30 Watt Subwoofer had bothered to show up in court maybe this
wouldn't be happening. Just because it's magnetically shielded doesn't
mean that the laws don't apply.
Along with the Pioneer 5.1
Surround Sound System for Xbox 360 is a handy Universal Media Remote.
It comes XBox ready and lets you access all those special X-Features
that come with the Windows Media Center. You'll find this helpful when
you start to suffer from "exhaustion from dehydration" after you've
been "working too hard". We've all had those days. Sometimes it's a
chore just to put on underwear!
One Coaxial and two Optical
Digital inputs, one Analog Audio input, it even has an FM/AM radio in case you
want to find out if anyone is playing the new album. Those thirty
presets will certainly help you look for anyone who'll drop their
needle on your haystack of a career. In the box you'll find batteries,
antennas, display stands, the cables and cords, and operating
instructions. If only everything came with operating instructions! Then
maybe we wouldn't need a surprise visit from the ambulance.
Assuming they have a coax/optical digital output or an analog audio output, The Pioneer 5.1 Surround Sound System for Xbox 360 is
compatible with any gaming system or audio device, from your living
room to a trendy nightclub. Wouldn't it be nice to fit in like that
once more? But that's the terrible secret about being young. One day
you'll just grow out of it, even if you aren't ready.

Sorry to be so abrupt, but we've got no time to chit-chat. If you want this exquisite Schug Carneros Estate Winery three-pack - and if you enjoy wine, you do - act fast. Like, now. If you dawdle, if you tarry, if you delay, we can't promise anything.
It's not just because it might sell out, although that's always a possibility with wines this good. No, you need to buy before Walter Schug learns more about Woot, realizes what kind of penny-ante rinky-dink outfit he's gotten mixed up with, and severs all ties to Wine.Woot.
Remember, this is Walter Schug we're talking about. The guy who introduced Syrah to California. The man responsible for California's first proprietary Bordeaux-style blend. He started making wine in the Rhineland in 1953, and spent the '70s making Joseph Phelps Vineyards a California powerhouse with legendary vineyard-designated Cabernets. Then he founded Schug Carneros Estate Winery in 1980, establishing an impeccable reputation for classic winemaking values.
Does he really want to be associated with a company whose most innovative achievement is something called the Bag O' Crap? Did he move to Carneros to indulge his passion for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, only to wind up sharing bandwidth with the Screaming Monkey?
We're not about to ask him. All we can do is keep our heads down and offer these three instant classics while we can. They say the cool, marine climate of Carneros does some amazing things for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and these two bottles of those varietals each hold 750 mL of supporting evidence.
We're especially jazzed about the Schug 2006 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay. See, Wine Spectator named the 2005 Chardonnay the best white wine value in the world, and we're thirsting to see if the '06 lives up to its reputation. If we have to down glass after glass analyzing its brisk, bright fruit flavors and buttery-smooth texture, well, that's a sacrifice we're willing to make in the pursuit of knowledge.
Our excitement over the Chard isn't meant to take anything away from the Schug 2006 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. Hard to believe this much robust raspberry and cherry flavor can be had for a mere twentyish bucks a bottle. Just goes to show you don't have to be rich to drink rich.
On top of all this, it almost seems greedy to take a bottle of Schug 2003 "Heritage Reserve" Merlot. But we will. When we think about its smoky cherry and coffee bouquet and its full-bodied cassis and chocolate flavors, all thoughts of morality go out the window. We just want more, more, more.
Maybe Walter Schug won't get wise to the setup. Maybe he'll be too busy maintaining the Schug standards of winecraft to waste too much brainpower on a Mickey Mouse operation like us. But maybe he won't. And maybe you better jump on this Schug Three-Pack before the jig is up.
