Product Specifications

At 125 Watts total output, it is powerful. It features unique, NXT digital flat-panel drivers for optimum sound quality from within two slim-profile cabinets. It replaces a traditional, cumbersome A/V receiver and is perfect for any flat surface, or can be easily wall mounted under your TV. The rear speaker is wireless. The cabinets are made of anodized aluminum for good looks, strength and durability. And the PT8051 provides outstanding acoustic output as well as surprising flexibility when it comes to controlling how sound is directed.
