LG Australia has launched it’s 2020 range of sound bars and revealed that the top 4 models have Google Assistant and Chromecast built-in.

LG Electronics Australia (LG) today unveiled the company’s 2020 sound bar range consisting of nine models that deliver premium quality audio, seamless connectivity and smart functionality.

At the top end of the line-up are the SN11RG, SN10YG, SN9YG and SN8YG models all of which have Google Assistant and Chromecast built-in. LG notes that Google Assistant is not available when watching TV, only when the TV is off. The new soundbar range complements the company’s line-up of TVs.

LG has continued its long-standing relationship with Meridian, the UK-based pioneers of high-fidelity audio. Meridian Audio technology is integrated in more models (SN11RG, SN10YG, SN9YG, SN8YG, SN7Y, SN7CY) this year. The line-up also supports Dolby Atmos and DTS:X technology for a more immersive experience.

Dolby Atmos produces rich, atmospheric sound and creates textured layers of details and depth. When playing content mastered with Dolby Atmos or DTS:X users will enjoy realistic surround sound-like with audio that appears to originate from multiple directions. For example, users will feel like a rainstorm is above and around them.

The premium models (SL11RG, SN10YG, SN9YG, SN8YG) in the 2020 LG Sound Bar range are enhanced with AI Room Calibration for the first time. After Wi-Fi setup using Google Home, the LG Wi-Fi Speaker app enables customers to use their smartphone microphone to listen to specialised test tones produced by the Sound Bar.

These LG Sound Bars will adjust the equaliser according to the room acoustics (such as reducing undesirable standing waves generated by room corners). This advanced feature enables the sound bar equaliser to self-calibrate and allows users to experience optimum sound from the TV by using the Google Home and LG Wi-Fi Speaker apps to calculate the ideal sound based on the characteristics of the room.1

Tony Brown, Marketing Manager for Home Entertainment at LG Electronics Australia commented on the 2020 range of Sound Bars:

“It has never been a better time to pair great visuals with superior audio. Our 2020 Sound Bars are the ultimate home entertainment package when paired with one of our premium TVs. We’re excited to give Australians access to advanced audio technologies and create memorable moments with family and friends at home – whether it be watching movies, sport or gaming.”
