LG SOUND PLATE
Sound bars continue to be popular but there’s a new product category in the one-box audio solutions: sound platforms—also known as sound plates, sound bases and sound pedestals. These devices sit flat on an entertainment stand or cabinet and function as a base for a television. Their increased cabinet volume allows for richer sound with more bass. The new LG Sound Plate looks sleek and sounds great but also boasts a wireless subwoofer for even richer sound. It even has a built-in Blu-ray player which makes it an attractive all-in-one option. lg.com
