I don't remember if it was something I read or something I was told, but I 'heard' that the MBA only has a single speaker. Thing is, when I play music, I can swear I'm hearing two distinct audio channels. Can anyone confirm/deny this?

I'm pretty sure the older models with the flip open door, that is pre-2010, had only one.
The 2010 redesign have two it seems.

According to the iFixit Teardown (http://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/MacBook-Air-11-Inch-Model-A1370-Teardown/3745/1) the new MBAs do indeed have stereo speakers

My old Rev. A MBA only had a single speaker but my new 11.6" MBA has stereo speakers. (Much improved!!!)
