NEW PREMIUM SOUNDBAR FROM LG DELIVERS NEXT LEVEL AUDIO FOR TODAY’S AT-HOME LIFESTYLE
At CES 2022, LG Electronics (LG) will introduce a new lineup of audio products with diverse models offering premium performance, unique and stylish designs and exciting, new sound experiences to deliver high quality, immersive sound for home cinema, music and gaming.
The impressive LG audio lineup is spearheaded by the premium LG soundbar (model S95QR), which boasts an output of 810W and 9.1.5 channels of surround sound immersion as a holistic high-end audio solution. With five up-firing channels including a center up-firing speaker – three on the soundbar and two in the separate rear speakers – to the soundbar is designed to improve clarity and enlarge the soundstage for a realistic listening experience. The ideal choice for movie lovers looking to elevate their home cinema experience, the LG soundbar centre up-firing speaker delivers clear dialogue and makes Dolby Atmos and DTS:X content immersive. And with IMAX Enhanced, users can enjoy stunning three-dimensional audio when watching compatible content.
LG S95QR features several key enhancements, most notably a boost in performance of the new speaker drivers, speaker chambers and subwoofer. The larger woofers deliver premium audio quality with deep, resonant bass emulating the immersive sound system of a cinema. For 2022, LG has upgraded the wireless rear speakers of its premium soundbar setup from four channels to six, with four front/side drivers to accompany the two up-firing drivers. Another improvement are the rear speakers of LG soundbar, designed to distribute sound evenly across a wide 135-degree space, giving customers more speaker placement and angle flexibility, especially beneficial for smaller rooms.
The soundbar features a sensitive receiver that allows for more distance between the soundbar and accompanying subwoofer and rear speakers without sacrificing sound quality. With a more stable wireless connection, the LG S95QR helps minimize drops or lags in audio output for distraction-free viewing and listening. Thanks to the inclusion of Meridian Audio Horizon technology in Music Mode, the soundbar can up-mix two channel audio to 7.1-channels for more realistic acoustic surround sound.
A superb solution for gamers and music lovers, LG soundbar features variable refresh rate (VRR) and auto low latency mode (ALLM), making this product desirable for console gamers who demand that the onscreen action and the audio be in perfect sync.1 With support for high-quality music streaming services, LG soundbars makes listening to one’s personal playlists and favourite artists all the more pleasurable.
What’s more, LG S95QR offers an intuitive user experience when working with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and other AI assistants. 2 Via smart devices, users can effortlessly control streaming music, adjust volume and change sound modes, using their voice. And now with the LG WOWCAST Wi-Fi audio dongle, listeners can enjoy lossless muti-channel audio without the hassle of running an unsightly cable to the TV. 3
When connected to a compatible LG TV, LG soundbar takes advantage of the TV’s advanced AI Sound Pro feature to make all content sound clear and lifelike. Cross-compatibility allows LG TV owners to use one remote to control both the TV and the soundbar. And with enhanced AI Room Calibration4, model S95QR can tailor its sound output to any given space, analysing the dimensions of the room to deliver more accurate low-frequency audio that is calibrated for optimum accuracy.
And again for 2022, the LG soundbar lineup is designed with the environment in mind, with a reduced carbon footprint throughout the entire product lifecycle. In addition to shipping in 100 percent paper packaging and using recycled plastic resin for its outer case, the new soundbar models utilise a new composite fiber material that is lighter in weight to help reduce carbon emissions during shipping and transporting.
