LG Launches a New "HD Soundbar"

Posted Fri Dec 17, 2010 at 07:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

It offers 2.1 channel audio thanks to a wireless sub.

If you don't have the room for a full 5.1 channel audio setup, or you're just a little low on cash, you can still get better audio. The solution is the soundbar, a bar of speakers designed to sit under your speakers and provide virtual surround.

LG's latest, the LSB316, is definitely designed to fit into a lower price bracket. It offers up six 2.5 inch speaker drivers with a total of 280 watts between them. It's also equipped with a wireless subwoofer to help out with those low frequencies.

"The LSB316 not only pumps up the audio performance of programming on TV," says LG's Tim Alessi, "but also brings a richer audio experience to music in an easy to set up and use package."

There's been no mention of availability or price for the LSB316, but we expect to hear more in early January.
