LG Electronics has launched a multi-room audio
solution for music lovers.
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 together form a
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 takes the fast-growing concept of
wireless multi-room audio systems to a new level with its smart
convenience and superior 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. LG engineers have set a
whole new standard by introducing features and functions to the
wireless audio system category that have never been available
before on competing units.”
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 HomeChat integration, users can remotely ask LG Music Flow on the way home for song and
playlist recommendations suitable for dinner guests arriving later
Flow Player app also gives users full access and complete 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
Multi-room Mode allows the same song to
play across all connected speakers during parties or a different
song in each room when family members are home.
LG Music Flow features 24 bit/192kHz Hi-Fi
playback across multiple inter-connectable devices that reproduces
studio-like quality sound, far superior to a CD or digital MP3
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)
is expected to be rolled out globally soon after.
