Denon DHT-FS3 X-SPACE
Pushing the increasing trend of more compact surround-sound systems, Denon has released the DHT-FS3 X-SPACE, a bar speaker meant to do away with the need for satellites. It does this by incorporating six drivers and seven amplifiers, with separation coming from signal aim and DSP simulation. It can supply 150W of sound, and is intended mainly for connection to DVD players and satellite receivers.
Not all of the supported codecs have been published; one of the known formats however is Dolby Pro Logic II. Denon states that it plans to release an add-on for the unit in September, which will allow audio from Wi-Fi sources such as Internet radio. The price of the FS3 is £700 ($1,412). [via Tech Digest]
