LG will introduce a new lineup of audio products at CES in January including the S95QR soundbar setup which boasts an output of 810W and 9.1.5 channels of audio. The IMAX Enhanced soundbar (plus sub and rear speakers) supports Dolby Atmos and DTS:X playback and includes five up-firing channels, one of which is a claimed “world’s first” center up-firing speaker.

The larger woofers in the unit promise to deliver premium audio quality bass emulating an “immersive sound system of a cinema”. LG has also upgraded the wireless rear speakers of its former premium soundbar setup from four channels to six, with four front/side drivers to accompany the two up-firing drivers. The rear speakers of LG Soundbar are designed to distribute sound evenly across a 135-degree space, allowing for better placement flexibility, particularly in smaller rooms.

The S95QR includes a receiver that allows for greater placement distance between the soundbar, subwoofer and rear speakers, and thus eliminates drops or lags in audio output. Meridian Audio’s Horizon technology enables upmixing of two channel audio to 7.1. There is also VRR and ALLM for gaming enthusiasts and support for music streaming services.

The soundbar system can use AI assistants via smart devices, such as Google Assistant and others, to control streaming music, adjusting volume and changing sound modes with voice commands. LG TV owners can use one remote to control both the TV and soundbar simultaneously, and an AI room calibration feature means audio can be tailored to any space through analysis of room dimensions.
