Magnetic shielding?

I'm not a home theater guy. But I have a general interest question: With the proliferation of LCD and plasma TV screens, are magnetically shielded drivers in speakers necessary anymore? Most speaker makers still seem to use some sort of shielding.
Just wondering...

Re: Magnetic shielding?

No, magnetically shielded speakers are not necessary unless they are being used by a CRT based display. Plasma, LCD, DLP, LCOS, etc are not affected by magnetic fields.
