Sony has launched a tiny 5.1 channel home-theater-in-a-box. The system features five tiny golf ball sized speakers. Sony describes, "The system, matched with a compact, single disc DVD/CD player/receiver, includes a unique subwoofer that helps the tiny speakers create sounds typically reserved for full size speakers." The system should be available in stores this summer for around $800
Implications - The system works with any compact, single disc DVD/CD player/receiver. Don't let its size fool you either because this miniature amplifier also comes with a subwoofer which recreates sound equal to that of full-size speakers. So if you're looking to blast some music and save space at the same time, there's no doubt that this little guy will provide those needs in a satisfactory manner.
