Loewe unveils a new high-end soundbar: it’s “multi-room”

Almost one hundred years after its birth (it was founded in Berlin in 1923), the historic German brand of high-fidelity audio Loewe returns to be "heard" with a modern product centered on the current tastes of users. That is, to put it in just one word, with a soundbar. But not just any soundbar, as the name suggests: the Loeweklang bar5 mr is, in fact, a high-end soundbar for audiophiles.

It is a 5.1.2 audio system with a dedicated subwoofer, the Loeweklang sub5, created with the stated aim of offering customers a "superlative home cinema experience".

The design is also that of a premium product, and has already won a Red Dot Award and an iF Design Award, and is perfectly in line with that of Loewe's OLED Smart TV range. Finally, it is a soundbar compatible with the Loewe "Multiroom" platform: coupled with other speakers Loewe klang mr can bring the same audio source to multiple parts of the house.
