LG announced today the LG HD Sound Bar LSB316. the LSB316 will officially debuting at the CES 2011 in January. The LG HD Sound Bar enhances the audio output of an HDTV by adding additional speakers and subwoofer capabilities to produce 2.1 channel virtual surround sound.
The LG LSB316 includes six speaker drivers housed in a sleek speaker bar which can be placed directly below the TV or wall mounted. The bar is accompanied by a wireless subwoofer which can be conveniently placed out of sight while delivering deep, rich bass.

"LG's new sound bar delivers a great solution for consumers who want to experience enhanced audio performance but may not have space for a full 5.1 home theater system," said Tim Alessi, director of product development, LG Electronics USA. "The LSB316 not only pumps up the audio performance of programming on TV, but also brings a richer audio experience to music in an easy to set up and use package."
The LG LSB316 also includes Bluetooth capability which allows the user to wirelessly stream music from their Bluetooth-enabled smart phone, tablet PC or MP3 player to the bar and enjoy the high quality audio performance. The Bluetooth function can also transmit sound from a TV program to compatible headphones for late-night viewing without disturbing anyone else in the household.
