Altec Lansing home theater systems

Wireless surround with no hassle


Altec Lansing
has two new high end Powered Theater (PT) series speaker systems to offer.

These new products provide home theater sound in a quite unorthodox way, and are designed to fit perfectly alongside your LCD or plasma TV. If you're not a fan of running cables through your living room and installing six speakers in it, these things might be a nice way to keep everything simple and tidy.

The PT8051 is a 5.1 system, but it consists of just two boxes. Its front box houses 3 speakers, left, center and right, while the rear wireless speaker takes care of rear left and right channels. The system’s matched 8" x 1½” NXT Digital balanced audio transducers have flat radiating surfaces that cover more sound and more room area than conventional cone speakers. Dolby or DTS are engaged automatically.

If two speakers boxes are too much for you, then you can go for the single speaker PT7031 system, and that's is as simple as it gets. The PT7031 uses Dolby Labs virtual speaker technology to deliver surround sound while using just three 8" x 1½” NXT Digital balanced audio transducers.

The new speakers will be available in August, the MSRP for the wireless PT8051 is $999.95 and the single speaker PT7031 should retail at $599.95.
