LG Electronics has announced it will be unveiling its 2023 soundbar lineup, including the brand-new SC9 and SE6 models, at CES 2023 in Las Vegas this January (Booth 15501, Central Hall, Las Vegas Convention Center).
LG’s new soundbar models offer seamless integration with the company’s TVs. When paired, LG Soundbar and LG TV offer new features such as WOW Orchestra, which uses the two products’ combined audio channels to create an expanded soundstage with improved height, depth and power. The company says its 2023 soundbars and LG TVs offer more synergy for outstanding multi-surround sound solution, allowing listeners to enjoy Dolby Atmos and IMAX enhanced quality powered by DTS:X.
The company’s premium home entertainment audio solutions also bring the intuitive interface to the Home Dashboard on LG TV, enabling users to manage their soundbar’s settings and share sound modes with the TV. WOWCAST also allows 2023 soundbar models to connect wirelessly with LG TVs, providing cable-free convenience.
The new soundbars boast a sophisticated design that complements the minimalist look of LG’s latest TVs. A new bracket enables users to place their LG Soundbar directly below LG TVs. The bracket, which attaches to the rear of a compatible LG TV, can be used to wall-mount or stand-mount the new soundbars at a height or location that ensures the best sound experience for users.
The 2023 soundbars deliver accurate sound reproduction and enhanced clarity for a more complete home cinema experience with LG’s Triple Sound Technology, which includes the world’s first Triple Up-Firing Speaker. New for this year, Triple Level Spatial Sound Technology employs channel analysis performed by an HRTF-based 3D engine to add a virtual mid-layer. LG says the result is lifelike sound with a convincing sense of space that puts listeners at the center of an immersive audio environment.
The company says users will also be able to hear the difference made by LG’s Triple Sound Optimizer – a feature that intelligently boosts the new soundbars’ performance – and enjoy upgraded sound via the Smart Up-mixer, which converts two-channel audio into multi-channel surround. Tailoring audio output to the user’s space, LG’s enhanced AI Room Calibration analyses the circumstance of the room, then applies that information to the soundbar’s settings to deliver greater precision in the low-frequency range. It also subdivides the front channel frequencies to help improve overall balance, the clarity of vocal performances, movie dialogue and the accuracy of the sound image.
The new models also incorporate LG’s AI Sound Pro feature. Designed to ensure outstanding sound for any type of content, AI Sound Pro analyses the audio signal and automatically applies the most appropriate settings.
LG’s new soundbars are compatible with a wide range of services, devices and connectivity features, including music streaming services such as Tidal Connect.
Enhancing the console gaming experience, LG’s latest soundbars also support VRR to reduce screen tearing, and ALLM to eliminate lag while also permitting 4K/120Hz pass-through.
