Default VLC slams cheap and nasty Dell speakers

Tin box maker Dell has been accused of blaming the damage of its "poor quality speakers" on a popular open sauce media outfit.

Dell customer support pages issued a warning over the weekend claiming that if you installed the VLC player your warranty would be voided. They claimed that the software was blowing up Dell's speakers.

VLC has a feature that can make the audio go to 11 and much louder than other players, Dell claimed. VLC achieves this by using a process that creates hard which can damage small speakers. Dell has tested VLC and verified that the speakers can be damaged after several hours of using VLC.
