We're not sure how long they've managed to keep this under the radar, but it looks like Vizio has been working on a wireless speaker set up dubbed the Jive. It's still a little unclear how it works, but it appears that the TV (perhaps a new Vizio TV?) will have built-in wireless and transmit audio to a receiver embedded inside a subwoofer, which in turn will have connections for your rear speakers (the TV's built-in speakers will double as the front speakers). With the exception of a few Aquos models, I haven't really been impressed by most TV's built-in speakers, but Vizio's concept sounds intriguing. Pricing and availability are up in the air, but we'll have more details as soon as we get 'em.
