LG TV the doubles as a Speaker

Now this is interesting:

https://entertainment.slashdot.org/story/19/01/06/210241/lg-unveils-88-inch-8k-tv-that-doubles-as-a-giant-speaker

Last year LG Display unveiled a rollable OLED TV prototype, which is reportedly becoming a real retail product in 2019. This year they're at it again with a giant 8K OLED set that doubles as a speaker and a weird flower sculpture made entirely of the flexible OLED panels. From a report:
As TV's get thinner, it's getting harder and harder to produce audio that isn't thin. Enter LG Display‚(TM)s 88-inch Crystal Sound OLED set. It has a 3..2.2 sound system embedded directly into the display. The sounds emanate from the panel itself. And, thanks to Dolby Atmos support, LG Display says that viewers will be able to hear dynamic sound come from their top, bottom, left and right. Sony introduced similar technology on its A8F OLED TV, but that was a 4K set.

Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

Fane produced a couple of flat panel drivers. Could be made to look like a painting on the wall. Discontinued so I guess they werenít that great or popular. Anybody ever hear a set?
