LG will showcase new high-end Google Assistant soundbars at CES

LG Announces New Dolby Atmos & DTS:X Sound Bars

Its Bass & Space and Elevation technology brings what LG says is rich and strong bass for cinematic surround sound.

"With the new sound bars, which intensify their convenience with smart AI connectivity as well as high-quality sound, we are set to target the premium audio market", said Kim Dae-chul, head of LG's home entertainment division. Meridian's Upmix for up-mixing two-channel audio to multiple channels is also incorporated.

There's no word on pricing or availability yet, but LG's entire new run of sound bars will make their debut at CES 2019 in just a couple weeks.

It's perhaps no surprise the soundbars will come with smart assistant technology. Both technologies improve the richness of the sound and provide a more complete surround sound experience.

As well as featuring "smart functionality" thanks to Google Assistant, the three sound bars have a "sleek, modern design" according to the announcement from LG, but admittedly they do look the business. With some of LGs 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. Compatibility with the Google Assistant-enabled smart products make it possible to control connected devices throughout the home via voice command.

Other features include an integrated gyroscope that detects the soundbar's position, whether on a flat surface or fixed to a wall, and adjusts the sound directionality accordingly.

Visitors to LGs booth in the Las Vegas Convention Center (Central Hall #11100) during CES 2019 will experience first-hand the award-winning the 2019 LG soundbar models.
