The Pro DJ Wheel allows anyone to become a DJ with creative mixing and scratching functions and fun lighting effects.

LG XBOOM AI ThinQ speakers consist of model WK7 and model WK9 and feature the Google Assistant to help get things done with just a voice. Unlike other AI speakers, the quality of the sound from LG XBOOM AI ThinQ isn’t just an afterthought. LG’s partnership with Meridian brings the full potential of the two companies’ audio expertise, delivering high-fidelity sound, precise vocal definition and accurate bass. And the lossless High Resolution Audio in the LG XBOOM AI ThinQ can faithfully reproduce sounds recorded in the studio. LG collaborated with Google to integrate the Google Assistant directly into the product as a home hub, allowing the WK7 and WK9 to control Google Assistant-compatible smart home devices along with LG home appliances compatible with LG ThinQ. The XBOOM AI ThinQ WK7 speaker, currently launching in key markets, will soon be joined later this year by the WK9 with its 8-inch Smart Display for a richer interactive experience.”
