South Korea-based LG recently announced a new soundbar — LG GX Soundbar which the company says is designed to deliver an exceptional home entertainment experience. It also offers a new level of stylistic integration with the company’s premium TVs.

The soundbar is designed to complement LG’s super-thin GX Gallery OLED series TVs, which are also known as Wallpaper TVs. Apart from putting it up on the stand, the soundbar can also be mounted on the wall directly under the TV.
It also comes with a dedicated subwoofer and to have proper surround sound functionality, you can also purchase the LG SPK8 wireless rear speaker kit, which is compatible with the newly announced LG GX Soundbar.
The 3.1-channel soundbar uses HDMI eARC and Bluetooth for wired and wireless connectivity and is also Hi-Res Audio certified for 24-bit/96kHz playback. It supports object-based Dolby Atmos and DTS:X audio formats.
It also features 4K HDR passthrough with Dolby Vision support for those who wish to connect video source directly to the soundbar’s HDMI input. It also supports eARC for lossless Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio soundtracks.
The LG GX Soundbar also comes packed with the company’s own AI Sound Pro mode which automatically analyzes the audio and “applies the best sound settings” for whatever is currently playing, says the company.
