Meridian Audio has announced three new soundbars in its ongoing collaboration with LG Electronics, which all offer Dolby Atmos and DTS:X support.

The SL10YG, SL9YG and SL8YG go "far beyond fine-tuning or adopting new feature-sets", with both companies joining forces to engineer a superior soundbar experience.

John Buchanan, Meridian Audio’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “From the start of our partnership in 2017, Meridian and LG have combined our expertise to produce pioneering audio solutions for more people to enjoy around the globe. We’re delighted to now offer more of Meridian’s innovative technologies for LG’s 2019 soundbar range, creating a more authentic, immersive and thrilling home theatre audio experience.”

Meridian have implemented three unique technologies, to deliver unrivalled sound quality for LG; Meridian ‘Bass & Space’ technology improves the soundstage, with a strong bass response; Meridian ‘Image Elevation’ physcoacoustically matches the positioning of the sound with the on-screen image; and Meridian ‘Upmix’ technology improves the soundstage of the whole system, increasing the “sweet-spot” area and overall sense of immersion.

“Our 2019 soundbars deliver amazing sound and the convenience of smart AI connectivity, fine-tuned in close partnership with Meridian Audio,” said Seo Young-jae, head of the Convergence Audio and Video Business Division at LG’s Home Entertainment Company.

“The high-quality sound and versatility of our 2019 line-up takes home entertainment to a whole new level. These compelling offerings satisfy growing demand for premium soundbar solutions that provide impressive listening experiences, greater convenience, and stylish, modern aesthetics.” 

As well as the 2019 soundbars, LG’s expanded XBOOM line-up offer ‘Meridian Mode3’, an exclusive sound setting which results in clearer vocals and more responsive.
