lg_music_flow_2015_lineup

There are less than two weeks until CES 2015 begins and LG is already announcing some new hardware. At the event in Las Vegas next month, LG will showcase its new lineup for the Music Flow Wi-Fi Series. The products include a Wi-Fi speaker, sound bars, and a Blu-ray player. Each device supports dual band Wi-Fi (2.4/5GHz). All of them work with the Music Flow app and a multitude of music services. The Music Flow app syncs the content between devices; for example, entering the house after listening to music on headphones will activate the Music Flow speakers or sound bars.

It looks like LG has something on its hands that can go head-to-head with Sonos and others in the wireless audio space.

Hit the break for the full press release.

This does not mean that LG is designing entirely new tablets, though. It could merely be existing tablets with upgraded specifications.

We will find out more in the coming weeks and months.
