MP3 system is a towering inferno

Bigger is better with this surround-sound setup

Intempo Digital

With everything getting smaller and smaller these days, it's refreshing to see a company buck the trend and make a big statement.

Intempo Digital's Stereo Tower does just that, in grand style. Despite its sleek modern design, this MP3 stereo is actually a throwback to the days of enormous music systems, with speakers the size of the Sears Tower. Tech Digest even describes it in '70s-era terms, as a "surround-sound Hi-Fi system."

If we didn't know better--and hadn't seen iPod stuck in the middle of it--we might expect quadraphonic speakers to go with this system. Regardless of the cost (around $425 at last check), we think it would look just grand sitting next to a quarter-ton turntable in your media room.
