The Soundbar from Altec Lansing

Check out Altec Lansing’s new one piece Soundbar, which can fit snuggly under your flat panel monitor. It has a low profile rectangular speaker that features precision angled drivers and built in sfx (sound field expander) sound widening technology.
It has a single in/out cable and side mounted auxiliary input and headphone jack. The single knob on the front controls the system.

“Immersive sound” is an audio advance that changes the listening experience. Music no longer seems to come through a speaker, but from an extended soundstage. Altec Lansing’s proprietary SFX signal-processing immersion technology audibly widens the soundstage to a startling degree. Tuck it under your flat-screen monitor for a new audio experience — and enjoy a refreshingly open desktop, improved wire management and simplified speaker connections to your PC and iPod® or CD player.

Powerful 2+1 system maximizes performance and clarity with two 2” precision-engineered speakers and a large bass pressure driver.

Full-range angled speakers and Altec Lansing’s proprietary SFX technology combine to widen the audio image.

XdB technology brings out the bass without a subwoofer.

Connects other audio devices, including older iPod models, iPod shuffle, other MP3 players, or laptops (cable included).

The Altec Lansing Soundbar should retail for around $99
