Another audio system cuts the cord

But at $800, it's still too expensive

Electronic House

How quickly things change. Barely a couple of months ago we were whining about the dearth of wireless audio systems on the market; now it seems as if our cup runneth over.

The latest to join the fray is a new home theater system from Acoustic Research, a subset of Audiovox, which promises "CD performance" in its sound. The wireless setup includes five "voice-matched" satellite speakers that the company says uses a special channel so it won't conflict with the frequencies of phones, computers, microwaves and other household devices, according to Electronic House.

All this sounded great until we got to the $800 price tag--so now we've got something new to carp about. And about that design: Is it just us, or does it look like Spongebob's boss Mr. Krabs?
