EXPERIENCE THE POWERFUL SOUND OF 4K AUDIO WITH LG’S HOME ENTERTAINMENT SOLUTIONS

 EXPERIENCE THE POWERFUL SOUND OF 4K AUDIO WITH LG’S HOME ENTERTAINMENT SOLUTIONS
From Sound Bars with Dolby Atmos® to Levitating Bluetooth Speakers and Blu-ray Player with Dolby Vision™, the Solutions Offer Flexibility to Suit Every Entertainment Space

SINGAPORE, April 19, 2017 — With the new 2017 lineup of sound bars, portable Bluetooth speakers and 4K Blu-ray player, LG Electronics (LG) is set to elevate the home entertainment experience. Consumers can now enjoy the thrilling and immersive experiences offered by cinemas and entertainment venues in the comfort of their own homes. Not only that, the solutions’ sleek designs add an aesthetic accent that will complement modern home interiors.

TV Sound Bars with Cinematic Sound Experience Enabled by Dolby Atmos®


LG’s new SJ9 sound bar harnesses the power of Dolby Atmos® technology to create a rich audio experience. It is equipped with multiple speakers to envelop the listener from every angle. Dolby Atmos® delivers moving audio that can be precisely placed anywhere in three-dimensional space, including overhead, to create realistic sound for a more immersive experience. These audio objects are rendered in real time such that each sound comes from its designated location.

The LG SJ9 is also equipped with 4K Sound, and is compatible with high-quality lossless audio files to recreate the sound recorded in the original studio. The SJ9’s Sound Upconverting feature increases the quality of standard audio files to 24bit/192Hz to enhance subtle details and nuances of each track. It also supports 4K Pass-Through to deliver pristine sound without compromising image quality, ensuring a perfectly synchronized audio and video experience.

Equally impressive is LG’s elegant SJ8 sound bar, which delivers robust audio performance in a slim and efficient 38mm profile. With TV Perfect Fit Kit, owners can integrate the SJ8 with selected LG TV sets by replacing the original stand with the SJ8 sound bar. Like the SJ9, the SJ8 is equipped with features including 4K Sound, 4K Pass-Through and the ability to stream content using Chromecast built-in.

Finally, the LG SJ7 is a versatile and powerful 320W sound bar that can be positioned either horizontally or vertically. Its flexible design provides an adaptable sound solution for any living room setup. Use it as a powerful front-facing speaker, or surround sound with one speaker in the front and one in the back. It also comes with a Bluetooth® setup that users can take on the go. Its Adaptive Sound Control feature also identifies what is playing and automatically adjusts the settings. As such, one can expect a sonorous audio experience that matches the video content.  

Portable Bluetooth Speakers with Modular Systems for Greater Flexibility  


LG’s PJ series of portable Bluetooth speakers not only makes a great addition to the home but is also well suited for the outdoors. Featuring a turbine blade design that allows the sound to resonate 360 degrees and wrap around the listener, its remarkable battery life also ensures 10 hours of fun and entertainment. When using it outdoors, users need not worry about any adverse weather condition as it is compliant with the IPX7 waterproof rating. This means it can withstand immersion in water up to one meter for up to 30 minutes.

The PJ series features a modular design, so users can tailor it to their needs and preferences. At the core of the PJ3 is a 360-degree omnidirectional speaker. The PJ6 comes with the same speaker as well as the add-on of a radio, so users can choose between listening to their favorite radio stations and their own playlists. The PJ9 speaker can be married with a subwoofer to achieve a truly sonorous audio experience. Promising deep bass, the subwoofer also acts as a Levitation Station — when activated the speaker will suspend and rotate in midair! This stunning visual effect is created using powerful electromagnets housed inside the Levitation Station.



First 4K Blu-ray Player with Dolby VisionTM High Dynamic Range


Home entertainment is never complete without 4K visuals. LG’s UP970 is the first 4K Blu-ray player which supports Dolby Vision™ high-dynamic-range (HDR) imaging. Leveraging the HDR technology that powers Dolby’s most advanced cinemas around the world, Dolby Vision™ transforms the TV experience in the home by delivering greater brightness and contrast, as well as a fuller palette of rich colors. It will also offer a strong lineup of content via on-demand streaming services, allowing users to play their favorite movies whenever they want.

The 4K Blu-ray player also offers enhanced dual format HDR compatibility with support for the generic HDR format (HDR10), so consumers can enjoy access to a plethora of HDR content. With this solution, consumers can enjoy access to more of what they want to watch in HDR, enhanced further by a robust portfolio of movies and episodic content in Dolby VisionTM. From content creation to distribution and playback, Dolby Vision™ is an end-to-end solution supported by leading Hollywood directors, major studios and distributors worldwide.

The LG UP970 also features additional picture quality technologies, including support for 10-bit color as well as playback of high-efficiency video coding (HEVC). It is also compatible with a variety of leading sound formats, including Dolby True HD, Dolby Atmos® and DTS-HD Master Audio.

“LG’s exciting 2017 lineup of audio and visual solutions is all about allowing users to recreate the cinematic experience at home,” said Brian Yi, Product Director, LG Home Entertainment. “Offering powerful sound capabilities and sophisticated designs, the audio solutions cater to the needs of all consumers, from audiophiles demanding absolute sound fidelity to causal listeners. The LG UP970 also displays LG’s commitment to offer users easy access to a superb home HDR viewing experience.”
