LG Launching New Sound Bars In 2023
Almost every TV you see at the store is going to be a smart TV. This much is certain. But once you get the TV home, will you be able to understand what people are saying when you are streaming your favorite movie or TV show? This is not an easy yes or no answer. Why? Because ever since TV manufacturing became about being thin and lightweight interest in internal speakers went by the wayside. When TVs were big heavy boulder cubes there was room for large sterio speakers and other audio tech that just can’t fit into the profile of a modern 4k flat screen. That’s why so many livingrooms now have soundbars. LG Electronics (LG) is unveiling its 2023 sound bar lineup, including the brand-new SC9 and SE6 models, at CES 2023 in Las Vegas this January along with its new TVs.
LG’s new sound bar models offer seamless integration with the company’s TVs, providing an effortless user experience. When paired together, LG sound bars and LG TVs present innovative, new features such as WOW Orchestra,1 which utilizes every one of the two products’ audio channels to create an expanded soundstage with improved height, depth and power. LG’s 2023 sound bars and LG TVs offer more synergy for multi-surround sound solution, allowing listeners to enjoy Dolby Atmos and IMAX enhanced quality powered by DTS:X.
In addition to an expanded feature set and greater ease-of-use, the new sound bars boast a sophisticated design that complements the minimalist look of LG’s latest TVs, and fits in flawlessly with a wide variety of décors. A new bracket3 enables users to place their LG sound bar directly below their LG TV, creating a visually harmonious and premium style. The bracket, which attaches to the rear of a compatible LG TV, can be used to wall-mount or stand-mount the new sound bars at a height or location that ensures the best sound experience for users. The convenient bracket helps to keep the viewing environment free from cable clutter and saves users the hassle of having to drill holes in the wall.
The 2023 sound bars deliver accurate sound reproduction and enhanced clarity for a more complete home cinema experience with LG’s Triple Sound Technology, which includes the world’s first Triple Up-Firing Speaker. New for this year, Triple Level Spatial Sound Technology employs channel analysis performed by an HRTF-based 3D engine to add a virtual mid-layer. The result is incredibly lifelike sound with a convincing sense of space that puts listeners at the centre of an immersive audio environment.
Users will also be able to hear the difference made by LG’s Triple Sound Optimizer – a feature that intelligently boosts the new sound bars’ performance – and enjoy upgraded sound via the Smart Up-mixer, which converts two-channel audio into stunning, multi-channel surround. Tailoring audio output to the user’s space, LG’s enhanced AI Room Calibration analyzes the circumstance of the room, then applies that information to the sound bars’ settings to deliver greater precision in the low-frequency range. It also subdivides the front channel frequencies to help improve overall balance, the clarity of vocal performances, movie dialogue and the accuracy of the sound image.
What’s more, the new models incorporate LG’s advanced AI Sound Pro feature. Ensuring outstanding sound for any type of content, whether it is movies, sporting events, games or music, AI Sound Pro analyzes audio signal and automatically applies the most appropriate settings.
Catering to the diverse home entertainment needs of today’s consumers, LG’s new sound bars are compatible with a wide range of services, devices and connectivity features. Users can enjoy lossless playback with stunning audio quality when listening to their favourite artists and tunes on music streaming services such as Tidal Connect with high-fidelity sound.
For those seeking to take their console gaming experience to the next level, LG’s latest sound bars support VRR to reduce screen tearing, and ALLM to eliminate lag while also permitting 4K/120Hz pass-through.
One of the new sound bars LG will be showcasing at CES 2023, the SE6 has a compact form factor that is ideal for smaller spaces, and a sleek, modern design that works well with virtually any interior style. Despite being the most diminutive of LG’s sound bar lineup, the chic, new model packs four passive radiators that help provide excellent sound with powerful bass. The SE6 also supports Dolby Atmos for cinematic audio that brings content to life.
