Vizio intros Jive surround for LCDs

Steven Kim

If you've got a Vizio slim bezel "Black Tie" LCD, and are looking to surround yourself in sound, the company has a treat for you. The company is rolling out its Jive SV5.1 Enhancement Kit. This bit of kit adds the all-important center channel, rear channels and a (2.4 GHz) wireless sub to your LCD's existing front channel so you can brag up your 5.1 surround system. That sub unit packs a 70-Watt RMS, 560-Watt peak amp in it for the Jive speakers. Vizio didn't break your checkbook with that LCD, and they won't with this surround system, either: expect a price around $299 when the system ships in July.
