LG 2023 Soundbar range – WoW intelligent sound (AV)

The LG 2023 soundbar range supplements, rather than replace, the excellent 2022 models. When paired with compatible 2022/23 LG TVs, use the WOW Interface – a new onscreen Home Dashboard to manage settings and share TV speaker sound easily.

Many LG soundbars include an additional centre up-firing speaker to enhance clear dialogue and add more directionality.

The WOW Interface – a new onscreen Home Dashboard on selected LG TVs, enabling users to easily manage the sound bar settings and share sound modes with the TV.

While you can use WoW with LG TVs, these are perfect TV brand-agnostic soundbars. The models with a centre up-firing speaker are a terrific solution for those who can’t clearly hear TV dialogue.
