LG 2022 Soundbar range – something completely different (AV)

The LG 2022 soundbar range goes from a 420W 3.1 system to an 810W 9.1.5 ‘beast’, joining four other Dolby Atmos soundbars in the range.

LG is one of the best ‘TV brand agnostic’ soundbars – it does not matter which TV brands you have as it slots right in.

The Dolby Atmos soundbars have a unique triple up-firing front soundbar. The S95QR adds a pair of equally unique rear speakers with one up-firing, one left-firing and one right-firing speaker to better immerse you in Dolby Atmos (135° coverage) and 5.1 surround sound.

The centre up-firing enhances the immersion (normally you only have Left/Right up-firing) and helps with clear speech understandability.

UK music experts Meridian have again helped with tuning and design – these soundbars have a pedigree and a great sound signature.
