SEOUL, Dec. 23, 2014 ― At the 2015 International CES® in Las Vegas, LG Electronics (LG) will showcase its new Music Flow Wi-Fi Series lineup for music and movie lovers worldwide. The lineup includes the company’s first battery-powered Wi-Fi Speaker (Model H4 Portable/NP8350), advanced Wi-Fi Sound Bars (ModelsHS7/LAS750M and HS9/LAS950M) and the Streaming 3D Blu-ray Player (Model BP550).These speakers are designed to be compatible with Android and iOS devices.

Each LG Music Flow Wi-Fi device can be used independently or connected to one another wirelessly, using Advanced Wireless Network and Dual Band Wi-Fi (2.4/5GHz) technology to deliver a seamless audio experience. Music streaming to a Music Flow Wi-Fi Series speaker from a smartphone continues uninterrupted when receiving a call. And if home libraries aren’t enough, users can stream music from service providers such as

Spotify (Premium service), Deezer Premium+, and Tunein via the audio streaming.

The LG H4 Portable/NP8350 is the company’s first wireless speaker with a built-in battery for easy portability from one room to another in the home. The Music Flow Wi-Fi Series lineup also includes two Wi-Fi Sound Bars that deliver rich and immersive audio—the HS7/LAS750M provides seamless HD sound while the HS9/LAS950M offers outstanding, deep acoustics.

LG Music Flow makes creating a personalised wireless home entertainment center easy. In Home Cinema Mode, users can wirelessly connect two of H4 Portable/NP8350 speakers to the Wi-Fi Sound Bar as rear left and right channels to immerse the viewer in surround sound. And LG’s BP550 Streaming 3D Blu-ray Player can be connected to Music Flow speakers to stream sound from a CD or USB drive.

What’s more, the Auto Music Play feature gives LG Music Flow the ability to deliver a user experience that maximises convenience for listeners on the go. Music on a smartphone will automatically begin playing on a Music Flow Wi-Fi speaker when the phone comes within one foot. So you could be listening to music on your headphones on the train ride home and the music will begin playing automatically from your living room Wi-Fi speaker when your phone is within range.

The collection also comes with LG HomeChatTM capability that allows users to control the LG Music Flow using the popular LINE free-text messaging app on any smartphone or tablet. Users can use this feature, basically sending a text to the speaker with simple commands such as “play songs for party” or “turn off music after one hour.” With HomeChatTM, LG Music Flow Wi-Fi Series can also act as a personal assistant, setting alarms and alerting users of upcoming events on command.

“The flexibility and quality of the LG Music Flow Wi-Fi Series delivers a listening experience that goes beyond what many conventional audio systems have been able to offer until now,” said Byung-hoon Min, senior vice president and head of the CAV division at the LG Home Entertainment Company. “With Wi-Fi capability and high-fidelity audio output, our Music Flow Wi-Fi Series is the epitome of what a smart audio system should be capable of in the 21st century.”

Visitors to LG’s booth at CES 2015 (Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall #8204) from Jan. 6-9 can experience LG’s exciting new Music Flow products firsthand.

Pricing and availability of the LG Music Flow Wi-Fi Series has yet to be determined for Australia.
