Nothing says annoying like setting up a speaker system. Running and cutting wires and placing speakers is pretty much the opposite of fun, but a trial that you have to go through to get a decent setup.
Or at least it was before the advent of wireless home theatre setups such as these KEF KIT 120 and KIT 140 setups. Looking really slick, they sport two speakers with "virtual surround sound," replicating the spatial sounds that surround speakers provide with none of the annoying set up, as well as a subwoofer and a base station. Simply run HDMI into your base station, place the speakers where you want them, and you've got an awesome home theatre setup in minutes. How easy is that?
