I have absolutely no idea whether the purported functionality of this is nonsense or not.  But a phased-array speaker system that shoots SOUND BEAMS is still pretty cool.

Since I'm not an audiophile, I usually giggle at stuff like this.

Then again, most people wouldn't spend $50 to get a 20 year-old Japanese cartoon on DVD, either.

Going off on a tangent, I get a good giggle at the sheer amount of bullshit that is proffered to audiophiles. $100 per foot magic speaker wire, special markers to increase the sound quality of your CDs, quantum stickers that can tune your CDs or your whole stereo system, magic rocks that improve the sound quality of any system.

Then of course there are the audio experts who claim that these things work, but when you pin them down in a double-blind test, it turns out they never seem to be able to tell the difference between the system with said gadget and without said gadget. Of course, this doesn't stop them from suing anyone who claims they don't know their shit.
