Mi-Hub Opus and Quantum – The Speaker Packing TV Stands

This pair of items caught my eye at the Gadget Show Live 2010.

Mi-Hub is the work of Integrated Entertainment Systems Ltd and are a couple of ways of slinging your home cinema set-up into your TV stand.

The idea has been played out before by Onei Solutions as well as Evesham and their Soundstage X1.

Mi-Hub comes in two flavours. The more right-angled one being the Mi-Hub Quantum has an asking price of £430 in white and £400 in black and the Opus comes in at £480/£430 following the previous options.

The Quantum has 4x10W L/R speakers and 2x20W subs, while the Opus is fitted with 6x10W L/R speakers and another 2 subs. Both machines are also good for karaoke thanks to their multiple mic inputs and they also feature all the HDMIs, S-Video, composites, coaxial, SCART and opticals you could want as well as being Dolby certified.

They looked pretty swish on the stand and the sound was quite good – although I’m not convinced if having all those speakers so close together works for films or music if you were looking for a dedicated rig. I still think, however, that the integrated speaker/tv stand is a decent option though for those with limited space.
