At IFA 2018 in Berlin, LG will unveil its expanded lineup of XBOOM audio products. In addition to mini components and all-in-one products, it now also includes the XBOOM Go portable Bluetooth speakers and XBOOM AI ThinQ smart speakers.
More Than Just BOOM – It’s XBOOM
The XBOOM mini component (model CK99) and all-in-one (model OK99) are crowd favorites with a thundering output starting at 1,800 watts and topping off at 5,000 watts for a lively party atmosphere. The Pro DJ Wheel allows anyone to become a DJ with creative mixing and scratching functions. Karaoke fans can eliminate the vocal track from almost any song and adjust the pitch with Voice Canceller and Key Changer, while the Grab & Move handle and casters of the LG OK99 takes the definition of portable audio system to a whole new level.
XBOOM Go is the first wireless speaker to support aptX HD from Qualcomm for superb lossless 24bit/576kbps hi-res streaming audio. This should satisfy demanding audiophiles who are sensitive to loss of fidelity via Bluetooth. The XBOOM Go models also feature multicolor mood lighting as well as Grab-N-Go and X-grip handles for portability and stability. Long battery life and resistance to the elements makes XBOOM Go speakers perfect for outdoor activities.
The LG XBOOM AI ThinQ speakers consist of model WK7 and model WK9, and both feature Google Assistant. The lossless High Resolution Audio in the LG XBOOM AI ThinQ can faithfully reproduce sounds recorded in the studio. LG collaborated with Google to integrate Google Assistant directly into the product as a home hub, allowing the WK7 and WK9 to control Google Assistant-compatible smart home devices along with LG home appliances compatible with LG ThinQ. The XBOOM AI ThinQ WK7 speaker will soon be joined later this year by the WK9 with its 8-inch Smart Display for a richer interactive experience.
Visitors to LG’s booth at IFA 2018 in Hall 18 will have the chance to see the LG XBOOM products and other home entertainment innovations for themselves.
