LG presents the world’s first soundbar containing (among other things) upwards firing center speakers, which should lead to an even more immersive sound.
The LG S95QR is a soundbar, or rather: a surround system built around a soundbar. In the package you will find not only a soundbar, but also two wireless rear speakers and an equally wireless sub. The result is a 9.1.5-channel surround system with a total power output of up to 810 watts. Naturally, Dolby Atmos (remember those upward-firing drivers in the soundbar itself?) is supported, as well as DTS:X and IMAX.
Also for gamers
For gamers, it’s good to know that the LG S95QR supports things like VRR (variable refresh rate) and auto low-latency mode (ALLM). On the downside, the system can’t handle 4K 120Hz HDR pass-through. Price and release date are not yet known, since the will have its premiere at the upcoming CES (which starts on January 4).
