Razer Acquires THX

Carlsbad-based gaming accessories maker Razer said on Monday that it has acquired surround processing technology developer THX. Financial terms of the acquisition were not announced. THX--which was founded by George Lucas--will continue to operate as a separate brand and business. Razer said the acquisition would extend its brand into broader areas of entertainment. The acquisition is the second in the surround sound and sound processing area in the last month; Calabasas-based DTS was acquired in September by Tessera Technologies.
