What is the WOW Thing?

The WOW Thing is an audio enhancement processor based on patented technology. WOW from SRS Labs is the next generation of 3D audio technology. WOW™ provides the ultimate listening experience from any two speakers regardless of their size, by creating an image that extends beyond the speakers themselves. Turn on WOW™ and your speakers instantly become dramatically taller and wider.

The WOW™ Thing also includes TruBass, another patented technology from SRS Labs, Inc. Based on psychoaccoustics, TruBass was designed to accurately reproduce the bass tones from a stereo recording and create the perception of deep and rich bass tones even if the speakers themselves can not physically reproduce them.
