Courtesy of thrillist, we just came across this fantastic self-enclosed speaker unit that makes setting up surround sound for your home entertainment system a cinch.

A little bigger than a rolled up Sunday Times, this self-contained unit holds a pair of woofers, 21 micro-drivers, and two amps — basically, all the gadgetry you need to rock Judge Dredd theater-style without wall-mounting speakers or purchasing a receiver. Set up’s easy: plug the YSP right into your TV/cable box/DVD player. The unit then sends out Red October-style test pings to calibrate the size and shape of its surroundings. In just three minutes, the YSP determines which wall to bounce each channel’s audio off of to achieve 5.1 sound so exceptional that friends will assume a tool-belted geek spent a month in your pad setting it up.
