CES 2008: Orbitsound promise stereo audio from single speaker enclosure

Some might say it's the holy grail of audio: getting stereo sound out of a single speaker enclosure, and ridding your room of the cables, multiple boxes and other detritus we've relied on before.  British company Airsound have developed what they're calling airSOUND, a "single point stereo" system that apparently has no 'sweetspot' position but instead provides total balanced audio in a space, and just to prove it works they've set up the Orbitsound product range launched at CES 2008.

CES 2008: Goodbye Bill Gates, from SlashGear with love

CES 2008: Goodbye Bill Gates, from SlashGear with love

Dear Bill,

Thanks for sharing your last day at Microsoft with us, here at CES 2008. Despite all the product announcements, PR people wrestling for our attention and press releases firing out of the fax machine like a gatling gun, we wanted to take a special moment to say thanks for everything you've done for the consumer electronics industry. We might not have always agreed with you, we might have occasionally hated your products and even replaced the 's' in Microsoft with a dollar sign, but at least you gave us something to write about.

Hell, we even loved Ctrl+Alt+Del!

Love from SlashGear
