LG Electronics (LG) lineup of 2020 soundbars will be available for viewing by attendees of CES 2020 in Las Vegas and will be readied for retail by mid-2020. The highlights of the lineup are the audio quality, easy connectivity, smart functionality, and sleek designs that integrate perfectly with LG’s TVs.

 

Feature-packed

Like models from previous years, the new SN9YG and SN11RG were developed in partnership with Meridian Audio to include their Bass and Space, to boost low-frequency reproduction and widen the soundstage and image elevation, for a more lifelike listening experience by elevating the perceived height of lead instruments and vocals.

LG is again including Google Assistant in more models for 2020, giving users control over compatible smart home devices from their LG soundbar using normal conversational voice commands like “Hey Google, increase the volume,” or, “Hey Google, ask LG to turn on the air purifier.”

To deliver the true theatre experience to home users, LG’s new soundbars offer 4K Pass-Through and more cinema-like audio with the optional SPK8 Wireless Rear Speaker Kit compatible with most new LG soundbar models.

Connectivity will be easier than ever with the addition of enhanced audio return channel (eARC) so owners can plug external devices directly into their eARC compatible TVs and enjoy three-dimensional sound of high-resolution audio formats such as Dolby True HD or DTS Master Audio. Additionally, the majority of the 2020 lineup supports Dolby Atmos and DTS:X for dynamic and immersive audio.
