TV, Speaker all is Flat now !!

06/15/2007 9:08 PM

It seems a trend to make shape of Tv set and speak into flate!

Two of three years ago, I visited an exhibition and saw a large size of LCD TV set up 80" and now is emerging many places such as conference room, entertainment field and tv station and studio etc.

The flat speaker is coming into ordinary people's home as a beautiful decoration on the wall. instead of tranditional cone shpe speaker, it doesnt occupy space. and has more efficiency and less phase difference than old speaker, the fault is it cannt replay good low sound down to 120Hz. so music lover has to set a woofer to compensate this pity.

not long before, we learned a new supper direction flat speaker occuring, that will be wonderful for family listener.and will be more useful for many fields.

Flat tv, flat speakers

As you've noted, the advantages on one do not apply to the other. Flat tv has better pictures while flat speakers have bad low-frequency performance. The problem is that since the tv is now flat, the only speaker that fits into them is a flat one, and they sound terrible.

The going-flat-trend needs to be worked out before they come out with a product. Hard disks used to be real thick but now they're a lot thinner (and more capacity to boot). This is an example of good engineering.

An example of bad engineering (aside from flat speakers) is flat keyboards. A commercial model once came out citing easy cleaning as the reason for designing a flat keyboard. Just take a rag and wipe it clean. Also keeps the coffee out of the innards. Unfortunately, the things were difficult to type on. Keyboards were made for typing! Those engineers designed a keyboard that was meant to be cleaned and not typed on? Hello?

Hi Vulcan, was the pun intended? (and more capacity to boot)

Ha ha! No, I didn't actually. That was an unintended pun. If I had delivered that verbally, I'd be wondering why people are laughing.

Flat keyboards are not the best, but can be most useful in dirty/ wet environments

When I was growing up in Tokyo, Japan, it was the norm to watch a 70mm film on screens that were curved on either side. That is the kind of projection screen I would like to see.
