Evaluation

In recent years, the need to turn TV speakers into home theater sound systems in ordinary homes has increased. However, there are challenges, such as size and height, involved with installing home theater sound systems close to the TV at home. On top of that, the speakers require various components and it is not possible to just make them small. When making speakers small, the speaker cone decreases in size and as a result, it loses sound quality due to this trade-off. Various research was conducted to produce the NB2230, which led to the biggest size possible. We highly rated the challenging spirit to push the limits of the trade-off.
