Analog Devices' SoundMax chips bring 5.1 to the TV speaker masses


Claiming that 85% of HDTVs won't be hooked up to external audio equipment, Analog Devices is trying to convince flat panel manufacturers to fit its technology behind the only two speakers many people will ever use. SoundMAX audio processors are built to match plasma and LCD high definition video quality with support for Dolby, SRS and BBE Sound. "Now available", don't be surprised if the ADAV4622, ADAV4601 and ADAV4322 sneak into a flat panel HDTV near you very soon -- if you're the kind of person who needs them, or the kind of person who laughs at folks still listening to audio from their television.
