Yamaha Electronics YSP-800 Digital Sound Projector. Available now for $899.95. Yamaha's follow up to its YSP-1 is the lazy man's answer to surround sound—one speaker, instead of six, and no wires to wrap around the room. The YSP-800 does this by creating delayed "beams" of sound to mimic the effects of traditional surround sound. The speaker includes Yamaha's Parametric Room Acoustic Optimizer. Also featured in Yamaha's high-end receivers, this technology automatically analyzes room acoustics and finds the best sound configuration. Call (714) 522-9105 or visit www.yamaha.com.
