You might think that taking the AmbiLight idea and applying it to speakers is a bit whack. Well, you're wrong. Imagine having 16 million colors illuminating your computer corner, desk or batcave, responding to the sound and vision in your home. Under the AmBX name, these peripherals come in either 2.1 or 5.1 the speakers being 40W and subwoofer 80W. No price or release date yet but I expect gamers will be keeping an eye out. More pics after the jump.

DISCUSSION

I like the concept of AmbiLight, but the implementation sucks. It basically takes a wonderful, high-quality LCD TV/Monitor and adds a "rainbow effect" similar to, but worse than, that of DLP. There must be a way to do it without using tricolor lamps that have a "refresh rate".
