LG Electronics (LG) introduced its latest soundbar lineup, which includes Dolby Atmos®, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth soundbars. In particular, LG’s new Dolby Atmos® soundbars deliver superior sound quality through a collaboration with Meridian Audio – pioneers of High-Resolution Audio – along with smart functionality and sleek, modern design.
A Transcendent Partnership with Meridian Audio
Working closely with Meridian, LG continues to improve sound quality across its product portfolio, extending its refined technology to three soundbar models (SL10YG, SL9YG and SL8YG) this year. The collaboration goes far beyond basic fine-tuning or the adoption of feature-sets, with both brands joining forces to engineer sound delivery for a truly unrivalled listening experience. Drawing on 25 years of experience as the masters of Digital Signal Processing, Meridian’s Bass & Space technology improves the soundstage with coherent image and strong bass. Together with its Image Elevation technology designed to lift the soundstage in a more lifelike way to boost listeners’ sense of immersion, Meridian creates a true cinematic space, delivering powerful surround sound like no other.
Able to up-mix two-channel audio to multiple, distinct channels without generating any distortion while maintaining tonal balance, the Meridian Upmix technology increases sound immersion, improving the sound field and upgrades the clarity of vocals and lead instruments.
Dolby Atmos® Soundbars for Immersive Sounds
LG’s high-end soundbars (models SL10YG, SL9YG and SL8YG) support both Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X. With these two acclaimed technologies on board, users can enjoy breathtakingly realistic surround sound that seems to come from multiple directions and depths. Moreover, some of LG’s new premium soundbar products support high-resolution audio and have an advanced processing algorithm that can upscale conventional file formats, bringing them closer to studio-quality.

In Tune with Smart Living
In addition to superior sound combining power with clarity and richness, the new Dolby Atmos® soundbars offer the convenience of AI smart connectivity and voice recognition with the Google Assistant built-in. Users can control their LG soundbars and get information, simply by saying, “Hey Google, increase the volume,” or, “Hey Google, which artist is playing this song?” Furthermore, compatibility with Google Assistant-enabled smart products make it possible to control connected devices throughout the home via voice command. Simply say, “Hey Google, ask LG to turn on the air purifier,” to the soundbar to make adjustments without leaving the couch.
Sophisticated Design for Stylish Homes
The 2019 LG Dolby Atmos® soundbars have a sleek, understated design that perfectly matches the chic style of LG’s exceptional OLED TVs, creating a seamless union when placed beneath one of the company’s next-generation TVs. At only 57mm deep, the LG SL9YG can also be installed flush to the wall for a clean, streamlined appearance that saves space and makes a sophisticated statement. An integrated gyroscope sensor gauges the position of the product (fixed to a wall or on a flat surface), adjusting sound directionality to guarantee the optimal listening experience. With its distinctive form, LG’s game-changing SL9YG picked up a Best of Innovation honor at the 2019 CES Innovation Awards.
Different Solutions to Suit Different Needs
Besides the Dolby Atmos® Soundbars, other models include a Wi-Fi Soundbar (SL7Y), and Bluetooth Soundbars (SL6YF, SL5Y and SL4). The SL7Y, SL6YF and SL5Y come with DTS Virtual:X. Utilizing three front speakers and a subwoofer, DTS technology creates an immersive sound that surrounds the user. Thanks to the SL7Y’s built-in Chromecast feature, users can stream all the music they love. Simply open a cast-enabled app, tap the cast button and the soundbar will stream the tracks.
“LG’s 2019 range of soundbars offer great sounds to enjoy, with multiple connectivity options to suit any kind of home setup,” says Hosik Kim, Product Director, LG Home Entertainment. “From AI connectivity to DTS Virtual:X and Chromecast features, the soundbars offer a superb, convenient user experience, all while being stylish statements for the modern space.”
