Audyssey updated the look of desktop speakers with their new Lower East Side satellites, not only the look is more modern they have also included optical input as well as a 3.5mm mini jack input.  They do lack the versatility of larger speakers, having only a volume control, leaving balance and equalization to the computer they are hooked up to.  Nikktech felt that the audio quality was superior to many other desktop speakers, perhaps not a big challenge but commendable none the less.  They peg the street price at about $200, so you might want to consider a high end headset instead if you don't need to share your audio, on the other hand for business usage in presentations these speakers could well be perfect.

"I remember a time when we all went out occasionally to see all the latest complete stereo systems launched from all the leading manufacturers like SONY, Philips, Pioneer, Panasonic, AIWA, Technics and Yamaha only to find out in the end that we couldn't really afford to get the highest end models featuring 10 CD disc changers (or more), mini discs and plenty of bells and whistles which of course were not available on the cheapest models. Times have changed however and so nowadays most people prefer to use their computer systems, media stations and smartphones to listen to their favorite music while at the comfort of their home and so the only real issue is finding a quality speaker set capable of fulfilling that task with ease. Well the latest Wireless Speakers by our friends over at Audyssey just might be the right ones for the job."

The Audyssey speaker set really looks like a decent pair of speakers. I agree with you Jeremy in saying that "They do lack the versatility of larger speakers, having only a volume control, leaving balance and equalization to the computer they are hooked up to." With the rise in smart mobile phones, computers and laptops etc becoming peoples music dock it would be much easy to be able to connect to a Wireless Music System, as you said Jeremy, to listen to their favourite music at the comfort of their own home.
