More speakers to conquer the planet

Sony's latest pair follows an alien tradition.

Now that's more like it. We got a bit worried when we saw that Sony was contemplating joining the speaker lamp market, a trend we've yet to understand . So we were comforted to see that it hasn't abandoned the electronics industry's tradition of creating alien speakers , especially those that feature giant eyeballs .

The SRS-AX10 makes a valient attempt to join that category, though Chip Chick says its long, skinny neck makes it look like "the Olsen Twin of speakers," particularly because of their correspondingly weak 1-watt output. But we don't mind--we'll take an anorexic model over a flesh-eating alien any day.
