Introduced at CES 2020, a new range of LG soundbars feature Meridian Audio’s digital signal processing (DSP) technology. The range features two CES Innovation Award winners, the SN9YG and SN11RG models, which boast enhanced sound quality and usability.
The flagship SN11RG model is a 7.1.4 channel system, complete with two wireless rear speakers that deliver forward and up-firing sound with advanced signal processing technology for 360 degrees of acoustic pleasure.
These new models feature several of Meridian’s unique technologies, including Meridian Bass and Space, which increases the width and scale of the soundstage beyond the physical dimensions of the product, whilst also supporting stable and accurate low frequency reproduction. The models also benefit from Meridian’s Image Elevation technology, which increases the perceived height of the lead instrument or vocal, especially important for soundbars positioned below a screen, and in turn creates a more lifelike listening experience. Furthermore, the majority of the 2020 lineup supports Dolby Atmos and DTS:X.
“Meridian is the high-performance audio brand and technology partner of choice for global brands seeking market leading sound solutions” comments Katy Bradshaw, Director of Marketing at Meridian Audio. “LG’s goal is to bring better sound to more people and our long-standing partnership with LG keeps growing. We are delighted that the trademark sound experience of Meridian now extends to the new 2020 LG soundbars, enabling even more people to enjoy superb sound.”
These LG soundbars benefit from brand-new AI Room Calibration, guaranteeing a more optimised sound that automatically tailors output to the specific characteristics of a room. These advanced models are self-calibrating, capable of recognising and analysing tones whilst accurately assessing the dimensions of a given space.
Users can control compatible smart home devices from their LG soundbar with the comfort and ease of conversational voice commands, with Google Assistant built into more models for 2020.
“Our goal has always been to bring better sound to more people and by offering more great products that leverage our successful partnership with Meridian, our latest soundbars help achieve this,” adds Park Hyung-woo, head of LG Home Entertainment Company’s audio and video business. “High-performance, convenient, and very versatile, LG’s newest models will make the premium audio experience accessible to more customers worldwide.”
