Si tratta di un sistema audio a 360W, con tanto di speaker system Dolby Surround 4.1, e sarà disponibile in Europa a partire dalla prossima settimana.
HS8, oltre a connettersi via Wi-Fi, può anche essere associato con altri speaker Music Flow nell’abitazione, permettendovi di creare una configurazione audio multi stanza, in base alle vostre esigenze. LG ha affermato che la natura curva del proprio dispositivo serve a garantire un suono più immersivo, grazie anche ai tweeter collocati agli estremi opposti. Vi è inoltre connettività Bluetooth.
La funzionalità di default integrata si chiama i-Sound Mode, e serve a cambiare dinamicamente la configurazione audio in base al tipo di contenuto riprodotto: in pratica si tratta di un equalizzatore built-in.
Il supporto Google Chromecast vi permette in oltre di effettuare un “music cast” dal vostro smartphone allo speaker audio, e nel caso altri impianti audio compatibili con Chromecast, è possibile personalizzare il playback multi-room.
HS8 misura 1200 x 43 x 82mm e può essere montato a muro. Non sono ancora stati rivelati e prezzi e i dettagli, ma non appena giungerà in Europa ne sapremo sicuramente di più.
Ecco il comunicato stampa ufficiale:
LG’S BEAUTIFUL CURVED SOUND BAR SOUNDS AS GOOD AS IT LOOKS
Home Viewing Experience with Theater-Quality Surround Sound, Intuitive Controls, Convenience-enhancing Features
SEOUL, August 12, 2015 — The stunningly beautiful Music Flow HS8 Wireless Curved Sound Bar from LG Electronics (LG) is the perfect companion to the company’s latest cutting-edge curved TVs. Available to European customers beginning next week, the 360W, 4.1 channel speaker system, does more than just upgrade the home TV viewing experience, it lets users experience audio in a whole new way.
The curved shape of the sound bar is for more than just looks, it contributes to an incredibly immersive experience. The sweet spot has been expanded, as the tweeters are positioned on both sides of the sound bar to expand the range of sound. Design and technology come together to make one of the best surround sound solutions on the market.
The LG HS8 sets itself apart from the competition with its highly dynamic i-Sound Mode. This innovative feature improves the TV experience by adapting its sound settings to match a variety of audio from various types of content. i-Sound is able to instantly interpret exactly what the audience is watching and automatically adjusts the audio output to match the content. The addition of LG’s unique, dynamic i-Sound system ensures that television, movies and music sound exactly how they were meant to be experienced.
What’s more, the HS8 Curved Sound Bar joins the wireless LG Music Flow collection that are compatible with Google Cast. This incredibly convenient feature allows the HS8 to work flawlessly with most popular streaming music services so that listeners can send music from their smartphone or tablet directly to the sound bar via their home Wi-Fi network. Select music, click the Google Cast icon and the content is instantly sent to the Curved Sound Bar.
With full Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, the LG HS8 can be used to transmit audio content across multiple rooms simultaneously, linking with LG Music Flow speakers to create the perfect listening experience. When multiple speakers are positioned in the same room, the advanced Home Cinema Mode immerses the viewer in a rich, cinematic experience from the comforts of one’s couch. As such, Multi-room Mode can be programmed to turn the entire home into one large sound system. Users can control the music in each room with a single mobile device, enabling them to select a playlist for the entire house or choose different songs for each room. Another unique feature of the HS8 is its compatibility with TV remotes from eight popular manufacturers.
“As a company that brought to market stunningly looking curved TVs, it’s only natural that we also follow up with a curved audio product to match,” said Min Byung-hoon, senior vice president of the LG Home Entertainment Company’s Consumer Audio Visual division. “In the digital age, the way consumers listen to music has changed dramatically and LG Music Flow is our response to movie and music lovers’ desire for beautiful devices that perform as well as they look.”
