Samsung is the latest company to employ technology from SRS Labs Inc. (www.srslabs.com) to boost performance of small speakers. Samsung will use the WOW audio enhancement technology from SRS in a 17-inch LCD TV. Flat panel TVs have high performance expectations, but limited space for speakers has posed a problem.

Sony recently adopted WOW for its Vaio W Desktop PC, which provides CD, DVD, and TV playback.
