They're actually calling it a "speaker board".

Panasonic is attempting to position this as a "good alternative" to sound bars.


User interface engineers: Always try to think in terms of putting in "un-do"s and not confirmation dialogs on every single question! Good grief! We're STILL doing this junior level newbie nonsense in 2015?????

I'm sure it's because they want it to easily connect to already mounted TVs.  Or perhaps they'll supply double-sided mounting tape to stick it to the back of the display (similar to what I've been advocating).  :)

That thing is a MOOSE!  And it makes sense too, because LG stands are moose.

 

I still think we're going to see "behind the tv" sound addons sooner or later from the major manufacturers.

Am I the only one in the entire visible universe that hates the look of sound bars on the wall?
