LG HITS THE RIGHT NOTE WITH 2014 AV RANGE ANNOUNCEMENT

Sydney, 6 May, 2014 — Marking a step up in sound, style and functionality, LG Electronics Australia (LG) today announced its Home Entertainment Audio Visual (AV) product range for 2014. Specially designed to work in tandem with LG’s stunning new television range, also announced today, the new AV range is a powerful addition to LG’s home entertainment ecosystem.

Led by the dynamic new Sound Bar (NB5540), the new range offers compact, wireless audio devices with powerful sound and stunning clarity that promises not to clutter your living room. You need never miss your favourite show again with LG’s intuitive new recorders (HR945T - 500 GB and HR949T - 1TB), which boast series recording and bumper storage space.

“We realise that home entertainment doesn’t begin and end with the remarkable picture quality of our televisions.” said Lambro Skropidis, General Manager Marketing for LG Australia. “Our new range of AV products enhance the viewing experience with cutting-edge audio and media storage solutions, no matter how big or small the living room.”

 

Sound Bar (NB5540) – Slim design, powerful sound

Featuring slim-body design and wireless connectivity, LG’s powerful new Sound Bar is the perfect companion for the company’s latest generation of premium flat panel TVs. The slender device is a mere 35mm in height, with a polished dark silver finish and LED display that blends beautifully with modern interior décor. It looks and sounds amazing when placed under the TV or wall-mounted.

Available in three options to cater for different TV screen sizes, the Sound Bar packs an audio punch that belies its compact appearance. Beneath the exterior, four dual neodymium magnet speakers provide 4.1ch multi-channel sound (NB5540 and NB4540 only) and a powerful wireless subwoofer adds solid bass performance, for a total power output of 320 watts. LG has included Hi-Fi DAC (NB5540 only) and an Analog Class D amp to guarantee superb HD audio output for clean, natural sound. With LG’s Sound Sync feature, you can connect the Sound Bar to your TV without cables. Bluetooth also makes it possible to stream audio from your smartphone or tablet.

 

Sound Plate – Delicious sound, beautifully served

LG’s latest Sound Plate is designed to serve up a dynamic audio experience without compromising on aesthetics or space. For the first time, the Sound Plate range includes an integrated Blu-ray player (LAB540W), which further eliminates the need for multiple devices and helps to keep your living room tidier.

 

 

 

 

This year’s Sound Plate has also been given a noticeable boost in power with the addition of a separate subwoofer (LAB540W and LAP440W only), with LG’s premium dual neodymium magnet speakers now delivering 320 watts multi-directional sound. Offering Bluetooth connectivity and complete with a brushed silver finish, front-facing display and standalone wireless subwoofer, the new Sound Plates are a stylish addition to any home entertainment setup.

 

Home Theatre – Enjoy immersive audio

For those that demand excellent cinema-quality sound performance, LG has upped its game yet again with the BH9540TW Blu-ray home theatre system. Four vertical-firing upright speakers enhance the sense of immersion from not only the sides, but also from above.

The vertical firing speaker cones use Aramid Fibre to add durability and strength for clear powerful sound, which works in tandem with a conventional 5.1 channel Home Theatre System, resulting in an exhilaratingly immersive 9.1 channel sound experience.

There’s also no need to disturb the rest of the family when you want to catch up with your favourite TV show or movie. Private Sound Mode 2.0 enables you to listen to the TV quietly by sending sound directly to your smartphone via Wi-Fi, so you can plug in headphones and watch away.

 

Recorders – Don’t miss a kick

As well as bringing awe-inspiring audio to the game, LG’s AV products are designed to make life easier, even when the TV is off. There’s no need to miss your favourite show again with LG’s latest HR945T - 500 GB and HR949T - 1TB recorders. Both come with a new Series Record feature that tracks and records episodes in a series, even if the broadcast times change. The recorders are the perfect accompaniment to entry-level Smart TV sets that do not offer integrated storage, giving you total control over your home entertainment schedule.

The recorders come with the brand new EyeQ EPG. Designed by Gracenote, EyeQ EPG goes above and beyond a regular program guide to offer cover artwork, cast information and full feature summaries when connected to the internet.
