LG launches its 2020 soundbars for the US market
LG has announced pricing and availability dates for its 2020 soundbars. Their flagship, the SN11RG, won itself an award at this year's CES event, as did a second premium model of this line-up (the SN9YG). They, along with their up-to-date siblings, are equipped with this OEM's new AI Room Calibration technique, as well as enhancements from its brand-partner Meridian Audio.
These soundbars will become available through US retailers from May 2020, with the exception of the 380W, 3.1.2-channel SN7Y, which will be available in June for US$499. In addition, 2 of the less premium units, the SN6Y and SN5Y, which have 429W and 400W of power and are 3.1.2- and 3.1-channel respectively, are on sale now for $379 and $299.
In terms of more premium models, the 440W/3.1.2-channel SN8YG will cost $799. Another $200 could get you the 520W/5.1.2-channel SN9YG, whereas the 570W SN10YG is priced at $1,299. As for the SN11RG, which has the series' top-end 770W/7.1.4-channel specs, it will set a consumer back a grand total of $1,699.
LG has noted that these bars are intended to pair with its new NanoCell and OLED TVs. The devices also support the Google Assistant, and feature drivers that aim upward to promote an immersive home theater experience.
