For 2014, LG Electronics will be releasing an upgraded version of its SoundPlate, which functions like a sound bar but sits completely under the TV, instead of in front. The LG model LAB540W SoundPlate is 39.5mm high, and can be placed directly underneath a variety of 32- to 55-inch TVs to minimize clutter. The new model is equipped with a robust 4.1 channel, 320 watt sound system and an external wireless subwoofer. This compact unit projects full-bodied audio in multiple directions, delivering an immersive, breathtaking auditory experience.
The SoundPlate also serves as a connectivity portal and features a built-in 3D Blu-ray player along with LG Smart TV functionality, transforming any flat screen TV into a Smart TV with powerful sound performance. Additionally, customers can use a second screen device to wirelessly stream content to the LAB540W over a local Wi-Fi network or via Bluetooth.
Price and Availability
The LG LAB540W SoundPlate is available now (June 24, 2014) for $599 at select U.S. retailers.
