LG Reveals Wi-Fi Speaker, 4.1 Receiver, And Bluetooth Soundbar

By |


Unvvvvvvv.jpgJust in time for Christmas LG revealed a lineup of new AV products designed to fit in with low-profile home theater setups. Competing with the Sonos Play:3  is the NP8740, a wireless wi-fi-based speaker. Next up is the LAB540W Soundplate, a sleek 4.1 reciever with wireless subwoofer. Rounding out the new lineup is the 320W NB5540 soundbar. Don't rush out to your local electronics store though- these items haven't been priced or made available yet. That info will likely come at CES 2014.

Nothing says "holiday cheer" like a fresh coat of snow, hot toddies and scads of CES pre-announcements from LG. After dishing on some of its 2014 smart TV plans, the Korean company has now moved on to audio, detailing several new components starting with the NP8740 wireless audio system. It'll let you play music through your house thanks to a dual-band 2.4/5Ghz WiFi system using so-called mesh network technology. That means each speaker can repeat the signal throughout the house, letting you play the same song everywhere or choose music on a room-by-room-basis. It can even connect to other audio systems and let you control the whole shebang with a smartphone app.

The company also revealed its LAB540W SoundPlate, a slim home theater receiver for 32-to-55-inch TVs with a 4.1-channel, 320-watt amp and external wireless subwoofer. It packs a built-in 3D Blu-ray player and smart TV functions, letting you stream audio from a portable device via WiFi or Bluetooth. For those who just need audio, LG also flaunted the 320W NB5540 soundbar that can either work via a Bluetooth connection or over a single HDMI cable from your TV, thanks to an audio return channel.
