Thin Tech, Big Entertainment

Ultra-thin. Unobtrusive. This is where the home theater is headed. But to get there, you'll need tech that not only falls into the category of "thin," but jaw-droppingly thin. Here's our picks for the perfect audio entertainment solution for any homeowner or apartment dweller looking to downside their home theater footprint.

The T Series from KEF are a flat panel speaker range that's less than 1.4" thick. So, if bookshelf speakers aren't your thing, you choose to mount a set of these up. The T101 satellite speakers sell for $499.99 per pair and the T101c center-channel speaker is priced at $249.99 each.

If you want a TV that minimally impacts your wall, check out Samsung's 55" LED C9000 Super Thin TV. It's literally has a 0.31" thick footprint, which is ridiculous given those bulky CRTs were still being made less than a decade ago. This thinness doesn't come cheap though. The MSRP? $5,999.

Now, it's mounting time. We like the OmniMount LEDW120 ($150), which can hold up to 120lbs easily, which provides a simple set up method similar to hanging a picture frame. The extremely low profile (just 0.66" of the wall) makes all the difference.
