Swedx now wants sound to be wooden too

Is the tree-felling trend going too far?


If Swedx had its way, media rooms in homes around the world might someday end up looking like fossilized forests.

The Swedish company was one of the first to produce TVs with wooden frames, long before the au naturel trend took hold among LG and other industry leaders, having expanded its lumbered ways from mice and keyboards. Now it's setting its sylvan sights on speakers as well for a completely wooded home entertainment apparatus.

The 5.1 surround-sound system complements its high-definition LCD TVs, which come with screens ranging from 17 to 46 inches, according to BornRich. Topping it all off is a stand made of beech or sapele wood. Let's just hope they don't try their hand at massage chairs too.
