Yeah, I know, that's not a soundbar, but LG's new ultra-slim speaker form factor just looks cooler in these slim left/right speakers. (You can see the soundbar that uses this same configuration at the right of the photo.) The slim speakers use specially developed, racetrack-shaped drivers that allow the satellites to be just about 1 inch wide and just a little more than 1 inch thick. A wireless sub is included. Not as visually beautiful but technically more interesting was the NB3730A, which has WiFi plus streaming of CinemaNow, Netflix, Pandora, and Vudu. It would make a good match for a TV that doesn't have streaming built in—assuming, of course, you don't already have a Blu-ray player with streaming built in, or a videogame console with streaming built in. It was also announced that some new LG soundbars will use Sontia SPT Lite, a new sound-improving technology first demonstrated at September's CEDIA Expo.
