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.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
