Pedestal-style sound bars are big news at the moment and LG have upped their game with their latest addition. The LG LAB540W Sound Plate is designed to sit under your TV, but unlike its predecessors, it comes with a wireless subwoofer and a built-in Blu-ray player.
The 1.56″ tall sound machine is designed to fit snugly beneath TVs with screens measuring 32″- 55″. LG designed it as a 320-watt, 4.1 channel speaker system and one is unlikely to get anything better in this size and design. The addition of a wireless subwoofer has helped this sound bar stand out since the best available pedestal models remain low even with dedicated subwoofers.
The integrated 3D capable Blu-ray player and the built-in Wi-Fi expose us to LG’s Smart TV suite of streaming media apps. There’s also built-in Bluetooth, for wireless audio streaming from nearly any device. Thus, it is clear that you can add as many features to your device as possible but without the main purpose accomplished it’s just a showcase.
