For 2014, LG Electronics will be introducing a table-top, multi-room capable audio system for wireless music streaming from smartphones, tablets and other Wi-Fi enabled devices. The new speaker, model NP8740, runs the latest mesh network technology, which includes dual band Wi-Fi support (2.4/5GHz) to deliver high quality streaming music throughout the home. Each wireless speaker not only produces rich sound with clarity and depth, but also sends the sound out in multiple directions.
Several speakers can be set up in any combination of rooms, connecting an entire house under a single system. The embedded mesh network technology also makes it possible to choose between playing the same song throughout the home (Party Mode), or different songs through each speaker (Personal Mode). What’s more, the NP8740 can connect to other audio systems for an integrated experience with greater output and control.
The Wireless Audio System allows digital audio collections to be accessed without a home network while a downloadable app turns a smartphone intoan easy-to-use master control unit. The interface even lets users seamlessly stream audio from online sources. Overall clarity is enhanced by a dual-tweeter arrangement and 24 bit/192kHz offers studio-like sound quality.
LG’s Wireless Audio System was also winner of a 2014 CES Innovation Award.
