The problem with most home theater speakers is their size. Where to put that massive sub? Well, NHT is looking to simplify things by flattening its sub to a pancake like 6-inches deep. Most flat speakers I've heard have sounded pretty weak, but NHT claims that despite the size of their new Verve line, the sub will still house two 10-inch drivers and a 200-watt amp. So at least on paper it looks like you'll be able to dish out heavy sound (and save space with the compact sub). The entry-level 2.1 system will go for $1,359 when it hits stores next month.
