Sony rolls out cylindrical sub-woofer

Sony has launched what's possibly one of the oddest-looking PC-oriented three-channel speaker set. Well, the left- and right-hand speakers look much like you'd expect, but the sub-woofer's out of this world.

The SRS-DZ10's bass-boosting unit is built around an aluminium tube with a blue backlight. Sub-woofers typically get shoved under the desk, but Sony reckons this is one you'll want where people can see it. All three speakers together generate 32W of sound power.

The set comprises the three speaker modules and a separate control unit, which not only provides a headphone socket but also a second input port so you can hook up an MP3 player.
