Gone are the days when people used to have stereo speakers. Now a days speakers with 2.1 to 5.1 channel configuration are very common.
But there is something that irritates me about them. These speakers have powerful amplifiers. They consume lot of power, plus they produce a little hum which is very noticeable in the quiet environment or at night.
The idea is that they should also have the ability to go to s mode like most of the devices (monitors, hard disks etc.) today have. So that it will consume less power and let people take sound sleep!
I hope these kind of speakers will come out in market soon.
