    CNET reviews likes these pedestal-style soundbars. The form factor just makes sense. This one looks a little thin though.

  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 4:21:02 PM
    The way we consume music has also drastically changed over th eyears. Want everywhere. So multi-room speakers. Both have built-in Wifi and Bluetooth
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 4:21:21 PM
    It's the ultimate in control and flexibility, all operated from LG's smartphone app, Alessi says
  • David Katzmaier 1/6/2014 4:21:26 PM
    Like Samsung, LG is chasing Sonos with a MESH networked audio system. Likely cheaper than both though.
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 4:21:45 PM
    Two new sound bars in the US. Both are 4.1, with wireless subwoofers and Bluetooth streaming, Alessi says

    But don't be fooled by the slim profile, this is a powerful system, Alessi says

  • David Katzmaier 1/6/2014 4:22:20 PM
    Even Tim has a tough time sounding excited about soundbars at 8:22 AM.
