LG Intros HD Sound Bar at CES Preview

Posted by at 11:21 am on December 15, 2010

Shown publicly for the first time at its CES Sneak Peek in New York City and available early next year, the LG HD Sound Bar enhances the audio output of an HDTV by adding additional speakers and subwoofer capabilities to produce powerful 2.1 channel virtual surround sound. The LSB316 includes six speaker drivers housed in a sleek, stylish speaker bar which can be placed directly below the TV or wall mounted. The bar is accompanied by a wireless subwoofer which can be conveniently placed out of sight while delivering deep, rich bass. The HD Sound Bar’s slim design allows for easy wall mounting, which matches up perfectly with a 42-inch class screen, one of the most popular class sizes sold in the United States.

“LG’s new sound bar delivers a great solution for consumers who want to experience enhanced audio performance but may not have space for a full 5.1 home theater system,” said Tim Alessi, director of product development, LG Electronics USA. “The LSB316 not only pumps up the audio performance of programming on TV, but also brings a richer audio experience to music in an easy to set up and use package.”

The LSB316 also includes Bluetooth capability which allows the user to wirelessly stream music from their Bluetooth-enabled smart phone, tablet PC or MP3 player to the bar and enjoy the high quality audio performance. The Bluetooth function can also transmit sound from a TV program to compatible headphones for late-night viewing without disturbing anyone else in the household.

Additional details on the LG HD Sound Bar and other new home electronics innovations will be unveiled at the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show in January.
