At CES 2022, LG Electronics USA will introduce a new lineup of audio products that is spearheaded by the premium LG Soundbar (model S95QR). The LG S95QR boasts an output of 810 watts and 9.1.5 channels of surround sound immersion. It features five up-firing channels, including what LG calls the world’s first center up-firing speaker — three on the soundbar and two in the separate rear speakers. The LG Soundbar’s center up-firing speaker delivers clear dialog and, with IMAX Enhanced, users can enjoy three-dimensional audio when watching compatible content.
The 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 a premium audio quality with deep, resonant bass emulating the immersive sound system of a cinema. For 2022, LG 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. The rear speakers of LG Soundbar are 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 stable wireless connection, the LG S95QR eliminates drops or lags in audio output for distraction-free viewing and listening. Thanks to the inclusion of Meridian Audio’s Horizon technology in Music Mode, the soundbar can up-mix 2-channel audio to 7.1 channels.
For gamers, LG Soundbar features variable refresh rate (VRR) and auto low latency mode (ALLM). (Although 4K 120 Hz HDR passthrough for gaming is not supported). It also supports high-quality music streaming services.
The LG S95QR also offers an intuitive user experience when working with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and other AI assistants. Via smart devices, owners can control streaming music, adjust volume, change sound modes, and control streaming music by using their voice. And now with the LG WOWCAST Wi-Fi audio dongle (sold separately), listeners can enjoy lossless multi-channel audio without the hassle of running a cable to the TV.
When connected to a compatible LG TV, the LG Soundbar takes advantage of the TV’s 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 AI Room Calibration, the soundbar can tailor its sound output to any given space, analyzing the dimensions of the room to deliver low-frequency audio that is calibrated for maximum accuracy.
Starting January 4, visitors to LG’s virtual CES booth can experience LG’s full 2022 Soundbar lineup, XBOOM 360, UltraGear Gaming Speaker, and the TONE Free lineup of true wireless earbuds, including the CES 2022 Innovation Award-winning FP9 featuring UVnano case, Plug & Wireless, 3D Sound Stage, and Whispering Mode.
