Diverse, Ever-Expanding Audio Range Takes Listening Enjoyment to a New Level

Beirut, Jan. 14, 2019 — LG Electronics (LG) is showcasing its expanded XBOOM lineup at CES 2019. The innovative new products are set to enthrall with superior sound, unique features and exceptional convenience.

The XBOOM name has become synonymous with power and quality, helping the LG brand attain its dominant position in the mini component and all-in-one audio categories. The latest XBOOM products remain true to the brand’s identity, boasting robust sound along with unmatched quality and ease-of-use. The XBOOM family comprises mini components, and all-in-one units, XBOOM Go portable Bluetooth speakers and XBOOM AI ThinQ smart speakers. Ideal for social gatherings of all sizes, whether it’s an outdoor party, intimate function at home, or a pull-out-all-the stops celebration at a club, LG XBOOM keeps the fun going with explosive sound and party-optimized features.

At the core of the LG XBOOM brand is LG’s unrelenting drive to deliver premier audio quality that maximizes listening pleasure. The new flagship XBOOM mini component (model CL98) boasts a solid output of 3,500W and incorporates a Compression Horn to generate crisper, more detailed audio across higher frequencies.

LG’s high-end XBOOM (model OL100) delivers a robust 2,000W output, employing a proprietary Blast Horn – a folded air duct behind the driver designed to create acoustic sound pressure by directing air through an amplifying duct – to improve high-frequency reproduction and bass performance; creating sound users can feel as well as hear. It also offers Meridian Mode, developed in collaboration with the experts at renowned British company Meridian Audio.

Another new XBOOM design supports the aptX™ HD codec for lossless hi-resolution audio streaming over Bluetooth, reproducing sound with incredible fidelity to satisfy the most demanding of audiophiles. Moreover, the upgraded Wireless Party Link makes it possible to connect multiple speakers for an even more impressive auditory experience.1

Available on 2019 LG XBOOM products, Karaoke Star is a new feature that’s fun for the whole family. Karaoke Star can suppress the vocals on almost any track, setting the stage for users to give voice to their musical ambitions. The 18 unique vocal effects pair perfectly with the new Multi-Color Lighting feature, a range of preset lighting options including the ability to sync with whatever track is being played, accentuating the beat and heightening the ambience.

LG XBOOM audio products have been praised for their superb sound and smart AI connectivity. The company’s XBOOM AI ThinQ smart speaker has been recognized as one of the best-sounding products in its category by a number of respected online consumer-technology and audio review publications. Visitors to LG’s booth (Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall #11100) during CES will be able to experience the impressive smart capabilities of XBOOM AI ThinQ speakers featuring built-in Google Assistant and Meridian technology.

“LG will continue to expand its XBOOM lineup to provide powerful sound that helps users create an enjoyable atmosphere, whatever the occasion,” said Kim Dae-chul head of LG Home Entertainment Company’s audio and video business. “We are excited about the present and future of the LG XBOOM brand and will continue to strengthen our offerings and our position in the party-audio market.”
