In the lead up to CES 2019, LG has announced their latest soundbar lineup.
The SL10YG, SL9YG and SL8YG models offer superior sound quality through LG’s collaboration with Meridian Audio.
“LG’s 2019 soundbars deliver amazing performance tuned in close partnership with Meridian Audio with the convenience of smart AI connectivity,” said Kim Dae-chul, head of LG Home Entertainment Company’s audio and video business. “The high-quality sound and versatility of our newest lineup takes home entertainment to a whole new level and satisfies a growing demand for premium soundbar solutions that provide impressive listening experiences, greater convenience and stylish, modern aesthetics.”
The soundbars are able to up-mix two-channel into multiple, distinct channels without any distortion. The new soundbars also support Dolby Atmos and DTS:X which helps produce realistic surround sound from multiple directions and depth.
Each of the soundbars has built-in support for Google Assistant, meaning you can say things like “Hey Google, increase the volume,” or, “Hey Google, what artist is playing?”
You’ll also be able to use the soundbars to control your smart home devices, thanks to the Google Assistant integration.
LG hasn’t announced pricing or availability for the new soundbars but more should be revealed at CES.
