LG's unannounced, awesome Blu-ray sound bar

LG didn't announce the LLB915 Blu-ray sound bar at its press conference, but it caught our eye at the LG booth, with its 2 HDMI inputs, built-in Wi-Fi and suite of NetCast streaming media services.

LAS VEGAS--We covered all of LG's major product announcements on Wednesday, but when we swung by the booth yesterday the LLB915 Blu-ray sound bar caught our eye. We're not quite sure why LG didn't mention it at the press conference, but the feature set is impressive. Here's what the product card said.

Key features of the LG LLB915:

  • Sound bar with built-in Blu-ray player
  • 2 HDMI inputs, 1 output
  • 430 watts of power
  • Wireless subwoofer
  • Built-in Wi-Fi
  • LG's NetCast suite of streaming media services, including Netflix, Vudu, CinemaNow, YouTube, Pandora, Picasa, and AccuWeather
  • DLNA-compliant
  • No release date or pricing announced

The card at the booth also mentioned the LLB915 was "made for iPod", which implies it has an iPod dock, but we couldn't see one at the booth. Again, LG hasn't released any info for this product beyond the product card at the CES 2010 booth, but we've requested more details.

From the first glance, the LLB915 appears to have stuffed the functionality of the BD390 standalone Blu-ray player into a sound bar, plus added two additional HDMI inputs for other devices. If it delivers passable sound quality, this could be a product to look for in 2010.
