Most TV speakers are bad. Soundbars have thus risen in popularity, but not due to their fidelity — they're simply more convenient and less awkward than wiring up a true surround system. Platin's Monaco fills this void. Tuned by THX and WiSA Certified, the system includes five smallish speakers and a thin subwoofer, all of which require only a power outlet to operate. They connect wirelessly to a WiSA controller that plugs into the HDMI ARC or optical output of a TV, delivering sound that rivals a wired system with minimal effort.
