Is it our imagination, or does business just sound better than it used to? The MP3 format allows you to hear clear tunes from your desktop PC. And thanks to "surround sound," TV shows and movies have never been more realistic. Now SRS Labs has introduced a device that makes everything sound clearer and cleaner. The Wow Thing works with your PC, stereo, TV, or video-game console. Just plug it into your speakers and your sound source, adjust it to your taste — and listen for the sweet sound.
The Wow Thing retails for $29.95. For more information, you can visit the Web (www.wowthing.com).
