Voix upgrades anorexic speakers

Despite their fragile form, they crank out 72 watts of sound.

Voix

If thin is in for everything from phones and headsets to TVs and MP3 players , then certainly the same should be true for loudspeakers. And while the slimming trend has claimed many other victims in this category, this pair from Voix seems particularly anorexic.

First released early last year, the MPX 2.1 system has been upgraded for home theaters, churning out 72 watts of sound through each speaker, according to Tech Digest. It can be hooked up to an HDTV or most versions of the iPod, including the iPhone. Just be careful when handling them so they don't snap in half.
