“The new LG soundbars come with inbuilt Google Assistant, which lets users control them with simple voice commands”
LG has announced its latest lineup of soundbars – SL10YG, SL9YG, and SL8YG. The new speakers support Google Assistant and feature Dolby Atmos audio technology. The soundbars will be showcased at the upcoming CES 2019 mega expo, scheduled to kick off from January 8th in Las Vegas. In fact, the SL10YG and SL9YG models are CES Innovation award recipients.
The new speakers are made in collaboration with Meridian audio. Using the Meridian UpMix technology, the soundbars can up-mix two-channel audio to multiple and distinct channels without any distortion and improve the sound quality by upgrading the clarity of vocals and lead instruments.
On the launch, Kim Dae-chul, head of LG Home Entertainment’s audio and video business said, “LG’s 2019 sound bars deliver amazing performance tuned in close partnership with Meridian Audio with the convenience of smart AI connectivity.”
These soundbars come with Dolby Atmos and DTSx. Moreover, LG is offering these products with in-built Google Assistant, with the help of which, users can control the soundbar with simple voice commands. The Dolby Atmos gives a cinema-like experience and DTSx support provides surround sound effect, which promises realistic audio experience even while standing in front of the speaker. There is another option for users to extend the sound-field even more with the help of an optional Wireless Rear Speaker Kit (model SPK 8).
“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,” Kim added.
LG has not yet revealed the pricing of the speakers, but we are expecting it to be revealed at CES.
