LG Electronics (LG) today announced the all-new LG Music Flow for music lovers worldwide. LG Music Flow Speakers (models H3, H5, H7), Sound Bar (model HS6), Network Bridge (model R1) and the companion Music Flow Player application available for Android and iOS form a convenient and smart Hi-Fi audio eco-system for the home. Through the Music Flow Player app, users can centrally manage their entire digital music library, even if music is stored across multiple devices, and control all Music Flow speakers in the home. The app can also recommend songs and playlists, provide easy access to internet radio stations and function as a smartphone music player when the user is on the go.

Music Flow H7LG Music Flow is the first device in the UK to incorporate LG HomeChatTM, a unique service that brings a personal touch to human-device interaction. With HomeChat, audio lovers can use the popular smartphone messaging app Line to communicate with LG Music Flow in natural English text. What’s more, users can enjoy the speed and simplicity of one-touch music management thanks to the NFC tag function, the first in a wireless multi-room system for the home.

“LG Music Flow takes the fast-growing concept of wireless multi-room audio systems to a new level with its smart convenience and superior sound quality,” said Byung-hoon Min, senior vice president of the LG Home Entertainment Company audio-video division. “Our advanced system can create a personal soundtrack that not only follows the listener from room to room, but also when the user enters the home. LG engineers have set a whole new standard by introducing features and functions to the wireless audio system category that have never been available before on competing units.”

Music Flow
Auto Music Play is one of the many compelling features of the new LG Music Flow. Auto Music Play allows users listening to music from their smartphones to automatically switch their current playlist to their Music Flow system when arriving home without missing a beat. With the unique HomeChat integration, users can remotely review playlist recommendations and then schedule songs to play as soon as they arrive home.

Another unique feature, LG Music Flow Player app, gives users full access and complete control of their digital music collections. Through the convenient search feature, music fans can find and play tracks stored on any internet-enabled device connected to LG Music Flow through the home Wi-Fi network. The app’s Mood Station feature can provide recommendations or automatically create a playlist to create specific ambience. LG’s system facilitates easy access to internet streaming and radio applications such as Spotify, Deezer, Napster and TuneIn (servicesdiffer by market) via the Audio Streaming Service. With LG Music Flow and the Music Flow Player app, millions of songs are literally at the listener’s fingertips.

LG Music Flow R1LG Music Flow employs mesh network technology and dual band Wi-Fi to ensure unin-terrupted, crystal-clear HD music playback unlike competing systems that rely on a sin-gle access point which causes music interruptions and pauses whenever the signal level drops. Expanding LG Music Flow with additional speakers is an absolute breeze. Select Multi-room Mode to seamlessly play the same song across all connected speakers during parties or a different song in each room when family members are home. Use L/R Stereo Mode for a more immersive listening experience or Home Cinema Mode for an enhanced movie viewing experience.

To guarantee optimal sound performance, LG has developed and implemented a propri-etary Automatic Loudness Compensation Algorithm in the Music Flow system. This advanced software technology ensures audio strength and clarity across all frequencies. In addition, each speaker features an advanced nano-fiber pulp and foam paper dia-phragm that further improves the quality of the sound. Unique to the HS6 Sound Bar model, LG’s Stereo Field Extension (SFX) Algorithm creates a larger sweet spot and amplifies the surround sound effect.

In recent years, there has been an increase in consumer demand for superior sound in home audio devices as high-quality multimedia content becomes increasingly available. LG Music Flow is the first system in its category to feature 24 bit/192kHz Hi-Fi play-back across multiple inter-connectable devices that reproduces studio-like quality sound, far superior to a CD or digital MP3 music. Now consumers can hear a level of realism that hasn’t been possible before in a wireless multi-room audio system for the home.

LG Music Flow with GPadLG Music Flow Smart Hi-Fi audio modelsH7 (70W), H5 (40W) and the Network Bridge model R1will be available in the UK starting this month and in other markets in Europe following IFA 2014 Berlin in early September. LGs Music Flow H3 speaker (30W) and HS6 Sound Bar model (320W) will be rolled out globally soon after.

Visitors to IFA 2014 can see the complete LG Music Flow collection for themselves at Hall 11.2 in Messe Berlin in early September.

    I am taking the speakers back to the dealer. They themselves might be awesome but the software is utterly and without a doubt the single worst application I have ever had the misfortune to use.
    When it bothered t actually connect it continually told me I needed to update the software whilst informing me that the software was up to date. Which it clearly wasn’t.
    It’s a shame because the speakers are great and when they work they fine but the software is awful awful awful awful.
    Just awful.

    I have now taken my speakers back to the dealer, and obtained a full refund. This is so disappointing, as the speakers are fab, it is just the appalling app, and customer service from LG that let’s them down. Off now to buy the Sonos.

    Hi Rich,
    I agree, mine does the same. Nobody at LG seems to be able to help. There is also very little instruction on the features of the app. I can happily play music located on my iPhone, but what or where is the music library that is on the device list. I have a lot more music on my Mac and would like to be able to access that – do you know if I can? All the best Ty.

    Yes the iOS app is rubbish apparently they are dealing with it. My main issue is I have the sound bar the R1 and two h3’s and they keep losinh wifi connection it’s fine for a day or so but then have to set them all up once again. Doesn’t take long to do but as a seamless music system it doesn’t work if it loses the wifi. Been waiting a week for a call back from lg and nothing yet. While functioning as they should they are great!

    Hi, I have bought this entire system, and the sound is superb, the speakers are stylish, but the app is rubbish, and I cannot get any help. The app constantly crashes on my iPhone. HELP !

    When can we expect the sound bar to be available in the UK?
