Companies are working day in and day out to provide the best home theatre experience by reinventing speakers, soundbars, and subwoofers. After showcasing its new soundbars at CES this year, LG is ready to launch them in the US market. The lineup consists of S95QR, S90QY, S80QY, S75Q, and S65Q SKUs. Read on to learn more about these next-gen Dolby Atmos soundbars.
LG’s 2022 Dolby Atmos Soundbars
LG has launched this new soundbar lineup to cover almost all home audio needs. This lineup resembles many of its features with its 2021 forerunner equipped with LG’s TV Sound Mode Share, Meridian Audio tuning, Dolby Atmos, and DTS:X support.
The next-gen 9.1.5 channel S95QR spearheads this soundbar lineup, which features five up-firing drivers with the world’s first center up-firing speaker. It creates the most immersive and realistic home audio experience for movie, music, TV, and game lovers. But, that’s not it; this soundbar also has rear-up-firing speakers making it an industry-leading Dolby Atmos soundbar. Furthermore, it also has an HDMI 2.1 port for 4K@120Hz support.
S90QY and S80QY, which are part of this lineup, support the SPQ8 rear speakers kit that is sold separately. All models, except the S65Q, support HDMI 2.1, which enables the device to support new audio and video technologies like 8K, 4K, 3D, and dynamic HDR. The lineup also supports features like VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) and Auto Low-Latency Mode (ALLM) to provide a lag-free gaming experience for all next-gen console gamers. But for gaming on PS5 and Xbox, it has a limitation of HDR passthrough at 4K@120Hz, because of which users will need to connect those to the TV directly.
What is the Cost of LG’s Latest Soundbars?
This new lineup has its price starting at US$399 for S65Q and will go up to US$1,799 for the S95QR. Before you pull the trigger to upgrade to your smart home theatre, make sure to check out LG’s S series lineup.
