The Smallest (Quality) Sound Projector
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.
