LG 2022 soundbar line-up with DS95QR top model

LG has announced its range of soundbars for 2022. The South Korean manufacturer is bringing various new models the DS95QR and DS90QY.

Earlier this year, LG unveiled its complete TV lineup for 2022, featuring the 2022 oled tv lineup and the 2022 lcd led tv lineup Of course, those televisions also include new soundbars, equipped with various new techniques and improvements. For example, more drivers are used in the soundbars, the housings have been redesigned and the technology for communication between the soundbar and wireless surround speakers has been improved.

Update June 2022: LG’s new soundbars are now for sale in the Benelux. Below you will find the lowest prices of the moment.

LG 2022 soundbar improvements

Dialogues are getting a lot of attention this year, partly thanks to slightly forward-slanting center speakers that separate voices from surround effects even better. Together with Meridian Technology, LG has also ensured that 2-channel music can be converted to 5.1-channel music. Most soundbars also support hi-res audio (24-bit / 192kHz) and both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X are supported. With the exception of the DS75Q soundbar, IMAX Enhanced is also supported.

Wirelessly send audio to the sound bar was already possible through Wireless Audio Synch, but that did not apply to the latest surround formats such as Dolby Atmos. For that, LG has now introduced the WowCast. This compact device can be connected to the HDMI eARC port of your TV and can wirelessly send a Dolby Atmos signal to the soundbar. HDMI features such as VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) and ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) are supported up to and including the DS80QY. It is striking that 4K120 passthrough will not work. Finally, AI Auto Room Sound Calibration has been improved to better tailor the audio reproduction to the room.

The top model for 2022 is the DS95QR with 810 Watts of power and a 9.1.5-channel configuration. From May you can go to the store for this speaker, with a price of 1,799 euros. For that amount you also get wireless speakers for the back of the room and a wireless subwoofer.
