While with the previously tested Creative Halo we have noticed a lack of bass, this model, even if it does not have active drivers for this particular reason, it can deliver decent lows, which is impressive for a unit of its size!

Xidax X-8 Gaming PC Review: Skylake-X And Dual GTX 1080 Ti Cards For The Win
If you've shopped for a custom built gaming desktops recently, you might have come across a company called Xidax, a relative newcomer to the boutique building scene. Xidax launched online in 2013, right in the midst of a resurgence in PC gaming. To some, it may have seemed downright crazy at the time to enter a market that had previously chewed up and spit out other players (does anyone remember Hypersonic?).
