Monitor Audio takes computer speakers up a notch with its Airstream WS100 units. The system packs two 3-inch cone bass drivers and two 3/4-inch C-CAM gold dome tweeters into 5-inch die-cast aluminum cubes. The cubes are solidly built, each weighing 4 pounds. Power output totals 60 watts. The speakers use the SKAA wireless system, which the company promises eliminates crosstalk, dropouts, clicks and pops. The wireless system requires a dongle that plugs into a USB port on your Mac or PC, and the wireless range is up to 30 feet. On the back of the master speaker is a 3.5 mm jack for a wired connection. A remote is included.
