Yamaha is coming out with its smallest sound projector yet! Perfect for people with limited space but who want something much better than enclosed television speakers. The entry level YSP-500 is out in Japan with no news on a US launch but it might be here in time for the holidays. The ‘IntelliBeam AutomatedSystem Calibration’ feature sets up the system to produce a surround effect spread over eighteen speakers. Two stereo and sixteen center speakers that are used to 'bend' the audio beams to bounce off your walls. [Gizmodo]

Another great option to amp up small rooms is the Mod1/Mod2 Computer, Ipod & TV Speaker/Amp Combo from Orb Audio.
