LG has unveiled its 2013 line-up of Blu-ray players and soundbars ahead of CES 2013. The Blu-ray players offer no groundbreaking new features but LG increases the Smart TV focus.

The Blu-ray format is still alive even though streaming services are starting to take over in many countries. In 2013, Blu-ray players become smaller and more feature-rich.

BD730 is the flagship model. It offers 3D playback, Smart TV functionality, built-in WiFi, a bundled Magic Remote, 4K upscaling, NFC, and a “screen mirroring” feature. BP530 is the step-down model without all the extra features. It offers 3D, Smart TV and WiFi. BP330 has no 3D support and only a few streaming TV apps.
LG’s 2013 soundbars
TV speakers suck. That is why soundbars have become increasingly popular with TV buyers. LG is planning to release four different soundbar models in 2013, called NB4530A, NB3730A, NB3530A and NB2030A.

The different soundbars obviously provide a richer sound experience and most of them also offer a wireless subwoofer. The flagship model delivers a total of 310 W, LG says. The NB3730A model also comes with Smart TV apps.
