The press release below is a press release issued by LG Electronics Inc. during the IFA Berlin 2014 Consumer Electronics Fair. Please be advised that the availability of products and features shown at IFA are yet to be determined for Australia.
SEOUL, Aug. 2, 2014 — LG Electronics (LG) today globally announced the all-new LG Music Flow for music lovers worldwide. LG Music Flow Speakers (models H3, H5, H7), Sound Bar (model HS6), Network Bridge (model R1) and the companion Music Flow Player application for smartphones form a convenient and smart Hi-Fi audio eco-system for the home. Through the Music Flow Player app, users can centrally manage their entire digital music library, even if music is stored across multiple devices, and control all Music Flow units in the home. The app can also recommend songs and playlists, provide easy access to internet radio stations and function as a smartphone music player when the user is on the go.
LG Music Flow incorporates LG HomeChatTM, a service that brings a personal touch to human-device interaction. With HomeChatTM, users can use the popular smartphone messaging app Line to communicate with LG Music Flow in English. What’s more, users can enjoy the speed and simplicity of one-touch music enjoyment thanks to the NFC tag function.
“LG Music Flow takes the fast-growing concept of wireless multi-room audio systems to a high level with its smart convenience and great sound quality.” said Byung-hoon Min, senior vice president of the LG Home Entertainment Company audio-video division. “Our advanced system can create a personal soundtrack that not only follows the listener from room to room, but also when the user enters the home.”
Auto Music Play is one of the many compelling features of the new LG Music Flow. With Auto Music Play, users can listen to music outdoors on a smartphone and automatically switch to Music Flow when arriving home. And with HomeChatTM integration, users can remotely ask LG Music Flow on the way home for song and playlist recommendations suitable for dinner guests arriving later that evening.
Another feature, LG Music Flow Player app, gives users access and control of their digital music collections. Through the convenient search feature, music aficionados can find and play tracks stored on any internet-enabled device connected to LG Music Flow through the home Wi-Fi network. The app’s Mood Station feature can provide recommendations or automatically create a playlist to create a certain ambience. LG’s system facilitates easy access to internet streaming and radio applications such as Spotify, Deezer, Napster and TuneIn (services differ by market) via the Audio Streaming Service. With LG Music Flow and the Music Flow Player app, songs are literally at the listener’s fingertips
LG Music Flow employs mesh network technology and dual band Wi-Fi to help ensure uninterrupted HD music playback, without music interruptions and pauses due to signal level drops. Expanding LG Music Flow with additional speakers is an absolute breeze. Employ Multi-room Mode to play the same song across all connected speakers during parties or a different song in each room when family members are home. Use L/R Stereo Mode for an immersive listening experience or Home Cinema Mode for an enhanced movie viewing experience.
For optimal sound performance, LG developed and implemented a proprietary Automatic Loudness Compensation Algorithm in the Music Flow. This advanced software technology ensures audio strength and clarity across all frequencies. In addition, each speaker features an advanced nano-fiber pulp and foam paper diaphragm that further improves the quality of the sound. The HS6 Sound Bar model, features LG’s Stereo Field Extension (SFX) Algorithm to create larger sweet spot and amplifies the surround sound effect.
In recent years, there has been an increase in consumer demand for superior sound in home audio devices as high-quality multimedia content becomes more and more available. LG Music Flow features 24 bit/192kHz Hi-Fi playback across multiple inter-connectable devices that reproduces studio-like quality sound, which is superior to a CD or digital MP3 music.
LG Music Flow models H7 (70W), H5 (40W) and the Network Bridge model R1 will be available in the UK starting this month and in other markets in Europe following IFA 2014 Berlin in early September. LG Music Flow with model H3 (30W) and Sound Bar model HS6 (320W) will be rolled out globally soon after.
Visitors to IFA 2014 can see the complete LG Music Flow collection for themselves at Hall 11.2 in Messe Berlin in early September.
