LG Electronics today announced the all-new LG Music Flow devices 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 form a smart Hi-Fi audio eco-system for the home. Through the Music Flow Player app, users can centrally manage their 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 ccess to internet radio stations and function as a smartphone music player when the user is on the go.
LG Music Flow incorporates LG HomeChat. Users can use the smartphone messaging app Line to communicate with LG Music Flow in natural English. What’s more, users can enjoy the simplicity of one-touch music playback thanks to the NFC tag function.
Auto Music Play is one of the many features of the new LG Music Flow. 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 that evening.
Another feature, LG Music Flow Player app, gives users full access and complete control of their digital music collections. Through the 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 via the Audio Streaming Service.
LG Music Flow employs mesh network technology and dual band Wi-Fi to ensure uninterrupted, HD music playback. Expanding LG Music Flow with additional speakers is also easy. The Multi-room Mode will play the same song across all connected speakers during parties or a different song in each room. The L/R Stereo Mode and the Cinema Mode can be also used.
LG developed and implemented a proprietary Automatic Loudness Compensation Algorithm in the Music Flow. This software technology ensures audio strength across all frequencies. In addition, each speaker features a nano-fiber pulp and foam paper diaphragm that further improves the quality of the sound. Unique to the HS6 Sound Bar model, LG’s Stereo Field Extension (SFX) Algorithm creates a larger sweet spot and amplifies the surround sound effect.
LG Music Flow is the first system in its category to feature 24 bit/192kHz Hi-Fi playback across multiple inter-connectable devices that reproduces sound 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.
