The company has announced a release window for the upcoming LAB540 SoundPlate speaker system.
After making its debut back at CES in January, LG has revealed launch details for the newest addition to its home audio lineup. The LAB540 SoundPlate will go on sale in Europe in May and then roll out to North America and other regions soon after.
"Superb sound is just a small part of what the SoundPlate offers," said Byung-hoon Min, senior vice president of the LG Home Entertainment Company audio-video division. "This comprehensive system also delivers Smart TV and Blu-ray functionality with sleek styling and space-saving convenience. LG SoundPlate's refined aesthetics will complement any interior and augment the slender design of today’s advanced TVs."
The LAB540W SoundPlate is a sleek audio device designed to be paired with 32 to 55-inch flat screen TVs. Measuring just 39.5mm high, the SoundPlate features 4.1 channel, 320 watt audio and an external wireless subwoofer, offering compact size without sacrificing powerful sound. In addition, the SoundPlate includes an integrated 3D Blu-ray player, Smart TV functions, and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth streaming.
Pricing has not been detailed yet, but LG's previous SoundPlate models, the LAP240 and the LAP340, are currently on sale for $329 each.
