This week at CES in Las Vegas, LG Electronics is showcasing an expanded lineup of audio products to appeal to a wide range of consumers from avid audiophiles to casual listeners and features Chromecast built-in.
The first soundbar the SJ9 is Dolby Atmos enabled and the SJ9 is equipped with multiple cutting-edge speakers. For those of you who don’t know what Dolby Atmos is let me explain. Dolby Atmos delivers moving audio that can be precisely placed anywhere in three-dimensional space, including overhead, to create realistic and breathtaking sound for a more immersive and emotive experience. Sounds are represented as independent objects by employing sophisticated metadata to describe the location and size of individual audio objects in the 3-dimensional listening space. These audio objects are rendered in real-time such that each sound comes from its designated location, even directly overhead the listener.Now that you understand what it is what else comes in the SJ9? 4k sound, sound upscaling and 4k passthrough.
Next up is the SJ8 which delivers robust audio performance in a slim and efficient 38mm profile and according to LG works flawlessly with their new 2017 TV lineup. With their new TV perfect fit kit you can integrate the SJ8 with certain LG TV sets by replacing the original stand with the SJ8 sound bar. The SJ8 is equipped with many of the same features as the SJ9, including 4K Sound, 4K Pass-Through and the ability to stream content using Chromecast built-in.
No pricing has been announced yet but when we find out you’ll know.
