Ecoustic / CNET has a review of Polk Audio SurroundBar one piece surround sound speaker. Similar to Yamaha YSP series, this is a partial solution to "fooling" yourself into real surround sound but in the same time is a viable solution to many installations, especially retrofit ones.
The good: Sleek single-speaker surround system; five speakers in one; extruded-aluminum cabinet; flexible setup options; nonreflective virtual-surround effect works regardless of room design and layout; wall-mount bracket and table stand included.Source: eCoustics.com
The bad: Somewhat expensive; hardly an ideal choice for music lovers; you still need to invest in a subwoofer.
The bottom line: A single-speaker surround system, the Polk Audio SurroundBar works best as a home-theater solution for small rooms.
