LG Electronics USA has announced pricing and availability of its 2020 soundbar lineup led by the premium LG SN11RG and SN9YG, recognized as CES 2020 Innovation Award winners.
Featuring Meridian sound technology, easy connectivity, smart functionality, and designs that integrate with the LG OLED and LG NanoCell 4K and 8K UHD TVs, the new soundbar lineup is available through U.S. retailers nationwide starting this month. The 2020 lineup is composed of eight models ranging from 380 to 770 watts.
Five new premium models (SN11RG, SN10YG, SN9YG, SN8YG, and SN7Y) combine Meridian sound technology, Dolby Atmos, DTS-X, and HiRes Audio (up to 24-bit, 192 kHz). These soundbars all incorporate up-firing speakers to deliver a 360-degree sound experience. The flagship SN11RG also includes separate rear surround speakers with up-firing drivers to further enhance the experience. LG’s collaboration with Meridian Audio drives the audio quality of these models, using technologies that combine advanced signal processing and refined hardware design for an expanded soundstage with greater height, width and depth. These models also include 4K HDR pass through via HDMI.
The SN8YG, SN9YG, SN10YG, and SN11RG also feature advanced connectivity through eARC for easy connection, better sound quality, and convenient control with the TV remote. AI Room Calibration uses spatial awareness technology to measure the room’s unique acoustic characteristics. It then balances the soundbar’s audio settings to the environment for immersive sound with a more accurate sweet spot. With the Google Assistant built-in, these four models also offer the convenience of AI smart connectivity and voice recognition without the need for an extra device.
All 2020 LG sound bars are compatible with the optional SPK8 Wireless Rear Speaker Kit.
