JVC's quiet 1BOX speakers, shhh

JVC Victor is showing off their 1BOX speaker system in Japan this morning which, despite its apparent size, is meant to very quietly throw multi-channel audio at very close range. The idea here is for you to hear the audio, not your neighbors, so the 1BOX cancels-out all the undesired signals resulting in a 56% reduction in leaked sound. The system is only a prototype and requires the listener to sit within 1-meter of the speaker. Still, for those of us livin' in the big city with lots of noise and little space, well, let's just say we'd like to buy a few for our neighbors while harboring an Everest system for ourselves...what?
