Smart speakers are great, in fact, they’re even greater when they have hi-res capabilities, AI added to the mix and other multi-room devices connected to ‘em. Meet LG’s newest lineup of speakers, pumped up with Meridian Audio tech (hi-res audio quality up to 24bit) and Artificial Intelligence to take your music listening to the next level. Or at least we hope so. Its W7 ThinQ speaker, being the best of the lot, is a cylindrical-Echo-like speaker with LED lights on the top and has 20hrs of battery. However, its siblings (PK3, PK5 and PK7) also come with hi-res audio, AI, and the Google Assistant and Chromecast as well. You can fetch the P series (starting from ₹10,990) and the W7 ThinQ (₹27,990). “Hey Google, play The War On Drugs’ latest album.”
