Thinking Outside the Box II Page 3
Mission fs1 I have a good friend who says "neat" whenever something fires her imagination. And that was my first reaction to the Mission fs1 home theater system-"neat." Instead of conventional drivers, Mission used NXT SurfaceSound flat-panel "exciters" to create a dramatically attractive yet ultra-thin compact speaker system. The left/right satellites are four satin-silver oval plastic columns, a bit over a foot tall, 3 inches wide, and only 1 1/2 inches deep, with silver metal grilles. The recessed bottom contains the input jack and two deep, round holes for seamlessly and securely mating the columns with the supplied shelf stands and wall mounts or with optional floor stands. The matching, slightly longer horizontal center speaker has an integral shelf stand for placing it on top of a TV. It's so narrow and light that it should rest securely on virtually any set, even an LCD monitor. You can thread cables through all of the stands to help keep wires out of sight.
