Despite the petite size of the Sony SA-NS500, the company's latest pair of speakers delivers a lot more than one would think.
For a compact amplifier, the Sony SA-NS500 packs quite a few features that are worth noting. Even though it's one speaker, it has the ability to fill a room with full range sounds thanks to the omni-directional design. Like many hi-tech items, the SA-NS500 also packs Wi-Fi capabilities, which means it can wirelessly stream music off iTunes and any other Apple product. This also means that the user can program his/her iPhone or iPod Touch to act as a remote to control the speakers. Other functions include DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) streaming and auxiliary input for other audio devices.
