This 300$ system( available in June) features one center, 2 rear(wireless) and one sub(wireless) designed for 5.1 surround using the TV speakers. Is it only compatible with Vizio TVs?

I think it's only going to be compatible with their "Black Tie" series Televisions. It would be nice if they could make it available for any TV. I even own a Vizio, and I don't think it will work. I'll have to wait til it comes out, sometime this summer.

Can you confirm that the 2 rear speakers are wireless? The system description reads like only the sub-woofer is wireless.

From Vizio's site (JV50PHDTV10A):

Quote:


Digital 5.1 Surround Sound - The new JV50P "Jive" 50" Plasma display also includes 2-front channel, 1-center channel as well as 2-rear channel plus a free-standing subwoofer. The rear speakers and subwoofer connect wirelessly to the "Jive" eliminating the wire clutter that is inherent with other surround sound systems.

The problem is that this system looks like it's discontinued. It's no longer listed on Vizio's home page. If you're looking for more info on the Jive system, do a search for 'Jive' in the Plasma forum.
