NEC offers 17" LCD Monitor that uses NXT Surface Speaker Technology.

The NEC Valuestar T and FS System features a LCD Monitor that is at the same time a Loud-Speaker.
The monitor’s vibrating component is a 2mm-thick sheet of optical grade acrylic, separated from the front face of the display by a distance of 6mm. Both sides of the acrylic are treated with anti-reflection coatings to minimise losses and the external surface also has a hard coating to enhance abrasion resistance. Two 19mm moving coil exciters, one at each lateral edge of the sheet, drive it as a distributed-mode loudspeaker panel.

An NXT panel’s inherently wide bandwidth allows the Valuestar T and FS to cover the frequency range from 200Hz right up to 20kHz, at the limit of audibility. Lower frequencies, which have to be excluded from the SoundVu panel to obviate visual artefacts, are reproduced via a small cone driver integrated within the monitor’s base.

No prices available at this point.
