CES 2019:LG Soundbars Deliver Meridan Developed AI & Google Assistant

CES 2019:LG Soundbars Deliver Meridan Developed AI & Google Assistant

The newly launched soundbars come in three different variants, including SL10YG, SL9YG, and SL8YG.

Able to up-mix two-channel audio to multiple, distinct channels without generating any distortion, the Meridian Upmix technology increases sound immersion by improving the sound field while upgrading the clarity of vocals and lead instruments.

The 2019 LG soundbars have a sleek, understated design that perfectly matches the chic style of LGs exceptional OLED TVs, creating a seamless aesthetic when placed beneath one of the companys next-generation TVs.

All three models are said to support both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, as well as offering Google Assistant.

LG Electronics who had to hop out of bed with United States sound Company Harman after arch rival Samsung acquired the Company, is set to launch a new range of High Resolution soundbars at CES 2019 that have been developed in partnership with UK sound Company Meridian.

His time was filled with friends and family, afternoons spent sitting on his front porch, but he also liked to stay busy. His family said they were with him, and told him how much they loved him and thanked him for being such a good man.

Another key feature included is Google Assistant, which is pretty much the same as when the firm announced its ThinQ brand previous year (interestingly, there's no mention of the ThinQ brand in the press release).

LG's new speakers are also all equipped with Google Assistant, which makes it possible to control each with voice commands. While the soundbars can essentially act as more powerful Google Home units and be used as one's smart home hub, the immediate benefit of having a voice assistant integrated into such a piece of hardware is convenience.

With some of LG's premium soundbars supporting high-resolution audio via an advanced processing algorithm that can upscale conventional file formats, the output comes even closer to studio quality. The SL9 is 57mm deep and can be installed flush to the wall for space savings. Two of the units, models SL9YG and SL10YG, have been announced as winners of CES Innovation Awards in the Best of Innovation category.

The TechRadar team will be heading to CES 2019 and will be getting a hands-on with LG's new audio products. LG says that's so it can gauge "the position of the product" and tweak the sound depending on where you've got it set up, like on a flat surface or fixed to a wall.

If you happen to be at CES this year, head to LG's booth in the Las Vegas Convention Center (Central Hall #11100) during CES 2019 to experience it for yourself.
