The playback frequency range is of 80Hz – 25kHz and is attained with the help of 6-cm cone and 2.5-cm soft dome-type drivers. The whole thing is not particularly big, measuring somewhere around 140 x 170 x 195 and weighing about 2.3 kilos. Available now in Japan for $1,050 plus $210 for each stand.

Microsoft recently presented its 2.4 inches square touch screen which they claim to be the smallest in the world. Instead of the touch controls being on top of the screen, obstructing the tiny view, the controls are located directly behind the display. The Nanotouch can also display your finger through the screen for increased accuracy. These tiny touch screens could be very useful for future portable gaming systems, smart phones and universal remotes.
