These systems are designed to be left in place at home, plugged into either a desktop or laptop. They usually have much more powerful amplifiers, and a larger variety of speaker types and sizes. They, too, come in different shapes and designs; some boxy and ordinary, and some organic and unique.
This is an example of the former. It is functional, but not particularly eye-catching. The blue lighting helps to give it a more modern feel, but the overall design is the same as every other cheap 2+1 speaker set you can buy at any Wal-Mart.
