three new LG soundbars and a planned update to the Wow Orchestra feature
LG will use the CES 2023 show to officially announce the arrival of three new soundbar models: the LG SC95, the LG S77S and the LG SE6S Eclair. An update is also planned this year so that some existing soundbars can take advantage of the new Wow Orchestra feature.
Like many manufacturers, LG continues to develop its offering around soundbars, taking advantage of the growing interest in these devices. For 2023, LG is keeping the S95QR soundbar, the flagship model announced around the same time last year. Other mid-level 2022 references will also remain in the catalog. LG adds three new models: SC95, S77S and SE6S Eclair.
New sound bar LG SC95 It is a 3.1.3 channel model with 400 watts RMS power. It is accompanied by a subwoofer and is designed to be compatible with the brand’s TVs, especially the C2 and C3 series. Indeed, it is based on a bracket that attaches to the back of the C-series OLED TVs. According to LG, this guarantees perfect integration and ideal space. Compatible with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X formats. It’s Wi-Fi, integrates Google’s voice assistant (you’ll need a speaker connected nearby to use Amazon Alexa), and passes VRR, ALLM, Ultra HD, and Dolby Vision signals and technologies at 120fps via HDMI 2.1 inputs. allows . It is equipped with the new Wow Orchestra feature. This is similar to the Q-Symphony feature offered by Samsung. Allows the TV speakers to play in perfect sync with the soundbar speakers. In addition, we can count on the integration of LG’s Three-Level Spatial Sound technology, which consists of three speakers aimed at the ceiling for height effects. The new LG SC95 soundbar is capable of converting a stereo signal to 3.1. It’s compatible with the Wowcast dongle, which wirelessly transmits the Dolby Atmos signal by connecting to one of the TV’s HDMI eARC ports.
New LG S77S and LG SE6S models
New sound bar LG S77S it’s also a 3.1.3-channel model that includes almost all the functions integrated into the LG SC95 soundbar, but is accompanied by a wireless subwoofer that is not designed specifically for the brand’s TVs. We can say that it is a more “universal” model that will be sold in certain markets. Dolby Atmos and DTS:X compatible, pretty slim.
As for the soundbar LG SE6S (Thunderbolt), broadcasts 3.0-channel sound with a total power of 100 watts, providing Dolby Atmos and DTS:X compatibility. It is particularly slim as it measures only 6.3 cm high for a width of 80 cm. Unlike the other two new LGs, it doesn’t have height speakers. However, it allows VRR, ALLM, Ultra HD and Dolby Vision signals and technologies to pass through at 120 frames per second. It also includes Wow Orchestra functionality and is compatible with Wowcast dongle.
The new LG 2023 soundbars will go on sale a little later in the year, and then we’ll know the prices of the various models.
New features are coming for 2022 models
A 2022 SKU update is planned by LG. The LG S95QR, S90QY, S80QR, S80QY and S75Q soundbars will thus benefit from the new Wow Orchestra features and be compatible with Wowcast. They will also allow VRR, ALLM, Ultra HD and Dolby Vision signals and technologies to pass through the HDMI inputs (except for the S75Q model) at 120 frames per second. A software update for the soundbar is scheduled for mid-2023.
