Tech Industry: Polk Audio Surround Bar 360

0:53 /

At CES 2008, Molly Wood takes a look at the Polk Audio Surround Bar 360, a very slick home theater in a box.

[ music ] ^M00:00:03 [ background music ] >> Hi, I'm Molly Wood from CNET.com, here on the show floor at CES 2008. Here we have the Polk Audio Surround Bar 360. We're taking a look at this. It basically takes the idea of a home theater in a box, and puts it in a much smaller box. You've got this console here with a built in AM FM tuner, and up converting DVD player. So the big story about this product basically is that it's just simple as can be. This is how you make your house look like a catalog, and dump all those messy cables, and that big five speaker surround sound system. It is just a box and a speaker, and one cable from your TV back into this box. Very slick. Now Polk says it should be shipping in early April, and it should cost under fifteen hundred dollars. At CES 2008, I'm Molly Wood for CNET.com. ^M00:00:45 [ music ]
