Pioneer has shown off a soundbar and satellite speakers with flat-panel speaker driver technology, allowing speaker widths of under an inch. The new Pioneer Sound Wing speakers are designed to blend seamlessly underneath or beside a flat-panel LCD or plasma TV, and come bundled with Pioneer's new slim-line AV receiver.

The speakers use what Pioneer calls HVT technology — "horizontal-vertical transforming" — which moves the speaker's magnets alongside the speaker driver, cutting down on the overall space required. The S-HV600B Sound Wing soundbar is only 25.5mm thick, and the satellite-style omnidirectional S-HV500LR speakers are 37mm thick.

The speakers will not be sold separately — they must be bought in a bundle with Pioneer's slim new VSX-S300 receiver. The VSX-S300 is the only Pioneer amplifier that includes an equaliser setting tailored to the new Sound Wing speakers. The price for each bundle is yet to be confirmed, but the sets will be available from September.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
