It’s a unique alternative to a soundbar and could appeal movie and music lovers who like to keep all of their home cinema kit neatly stacked up in one place. Priced at 399 Euros (£336), it's around £40 more expensive than the LG NB4530A 2.1 channel soundbar.
It measures 35mm high and is able to take the weight of a 32-inch all the way up to a 52-inch sized TV.
Connect it to your TV is relatively straightforward. There’s just a single optical cable required and if you already own a LG compatible TV it can hook up wirelessly via Sound Sync.
The Sound Plate comes with a small, chrome silver remote giving you control over volume, mute, Bluetooth and Opitcal outputs, turning the speaker system on and off and controlling some of the TV functions. You can also enable LG's 3D Sound to activate the surround sound.
On compatible LG TVs you can also use TV remote to control some of the Sound Plate functions.
The 55-inch LG TV on its metal stand looked secure on the system and didn't show any noticeable signs of strain from the weight of the television.
It’s a great speaker solution if you don’t have space to mount a soundbar on the wall or room for a separate subwoofer. Most importantly, it has the sound performance to match the chic, minimalist, space-saving design home cinema enthusiasts will surely love.
