LG recently presented its 2018 lineup of LG sound bars, and it’s a solid one. They’re equipped with Meridian Audio’s advanced high-performance audio technology, which delivers the most authentic sound possible. The SK10Y, SK9Y and SK8Y sound bars include the support of Dolby Atmos, offering music and movie enthusiasts an immersive audio experience. Also available are the mid-ranged SK6, SK5, SJ2 and SK1.
Superior Sound with Dolby Atmos and Meridian Audio Partnership
LG’s new SK10Y sound bar delivers 550W of powerful output and supports 5.1.2 channels by harnessing the power of Dolby Atmos technology. Expect an immersive sound characterized by heightened realism and the feeling of being in the middle of the action, as unique “sound objects” can be precisely placed anywhere, including the ceiling, in a three-dimensional space. The SK10Y is equipped with multiple speakers – including a pair of powerful up-firing speakers – to envelop you from every angle.
LG’s partnership with Meridian Audio has created innovative audio enhancements designed to deliver a superior listening experience. As a pioneer of high-performance, high-fidelity audio and an authority on Digital Signal Processing (DSP), as well as the field of psychoacoustics, Meridian Audio equipped the SK10Y with a high level of performance including its Bass and Space technology. No matter where you’re seated, the sound is rich and immersive.
Meridian’s Height Elevation technology raises sound to the level of the screen, bringing extra clarity to speech and music. What’s more, the LG SK10Y is compatible with high-quality lossless audio files to perfectly recreate sound recorded in the studio. In addition to playback of up to 40kHz, it also offers a sound up-converting feature that boosts the quality of standard audio files to 24bit/192Hz to enhance the subtle details and nuances of each track.
From a design perspective, the SK10Y is a head-turner with its harmonious, modern-looking edges and a slim profile that seamlessly fits underneath many of LG 2018 OLED or SUPER UHD TV models. The device is also extremely accessible, with full connectivity to hubs, speakers and other smart devices supporting Chromecast.
Two other solutions in the same series include the SK9Y and SK8Y, which pack impressive audio capabilities such as 550W and 360W outputs; 5.1.2ch and 2.1ch; 4K Pass Thru and Sound Upconverting respectively. You can feel every thump while watching action-packed blockbuster movies, and hear every note while listening to your favorite tunes.
Powerful Sound bars that Elevate the Home Entertainment Experience
LG also has various options for audiophiles looking to redesign their home audio setups. Both the SK6 and SK5 come with DTS Virtual:X, a full, three-dimensional immersive surround sound format that allows for atmospheric effects — for example, you will hear a thunder sound effect as if it were overhead. Relying on digital sound processing, this 360-degree sound can be achieved in any kind of spaces, even those of a large size or an open-floor layout.
The SJ2 and SK1 are wireless solutions that blend into the home’s interior design seamlessly. They also deliver great bass for a clear, harmonious audio experience.
