Convenient control with mini remote control
To make control as convenient as possible, the Lenco SB-042LED naturally comes with a remote control. At first glance, this reminds us of the remote control of the Fire TV devices from Amazon. In combination with a display, which is located under the front grille of the soundbar, you can always monitor your inputs. Individual sound settings are possible thanks to the integrated equalizer.
However, the eponymous highlight is and remains the LED lighting. This is quite reminiscent of the Creative Sound Blaster Katana V2X (test) in its concept. Here you have the choice between different programs to be able to select exactly the mood you are in the mood for. From classic color gradients to rhythmic lighting based on the music, everything is possible here. If you don’t feel like using the LEDs, you can also deactivate them.
