    Try searching for " soundbar " or the specific model in the speakers sub forum. IMHO they only work when you're sat in the sweet spot at right angles to the speaker. If you move out of this sweet spot the effect of pseudo 'surround sound' is lost. Some of the higher end (expensive) models are meant to be but they're not for me.
