Loewe adds klang bar3 mr soundbar to its audio lineup

Germany’s revived audio visual brand Loewe has announced a new addition to its portfolio of soundbars with the launch of the klang bar3 mr.


Loewe has added a few new TVs to its lineup in recent months, including its eco-friendly Iconic OLED TV that's encased in a strange material called "Syno-Stone", but it has been some time since the company expanded its range of audio gear. So the launch of the Loewe klang bar3 mr soundbar, a more compact version of the existing klang bar5, is a timely one, and it’s also one that puts lots of emphasis on the company’s wider sound system lineup.

The 3.1 channel klang bar3 mr is compatible with Loewe’s existing set of wireless multiroom speakers, making it possible to integrate it with a larger 5.1 sound system. It sports Loewe’s latest latency-free Wireless Digital Audio Link (WDAL 2.0) to make this happen. In addition, the klang bar3 mr is also compatible with active wired speakers, the company said. It includes an integrated 5.1 AV receiver that helps to ensure connectivity with third-party speakers. Thus, buyers can be assured of an “immersive home cinema sound experience” with almost any kind of speaker they might already own, Loewe said.

Those who intend to use the klang bar3 mr as a standalone audio system hopefully won’t be disappointed either. The soundbar is equipped with seven front-firing speakers and two built-in subwoofers, delivering a combined output of 360W. It supports Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, DTS HD and DTS Virtual: X, and can connect to other devices through built-in Chromecast, Apple Airplay 2 and DTS Play-Fi. The soundbar itself measures 950mm across, making it a good fit for a 43-inch or wider television. The connectivity options also include three HDMI ports (two in, one out), one of which supports eARC, plus 4K pass-through with an optical input and USB.


Loewe said the klang bar3 mr is expected to go on sale in April, which means this month. Considering the month is almost at an end, that means we can expect to see it in the shops imminently, if it’s not already available. The company said it will cost £999 and has posted a list of authorised retailers on its website for those who’re interested in snapping one up.
