CES 2017 is all wrapped up and while the tech world is still reeling form the announcement of Samsung’s new Chromebook line, there’s plenty of other Chrome goodies to be excited about.
While much attention was focused on 4K televisions and smart home products, Chromecast tech was was a soft-spoken feature for a large number of manufactures this year.
LG in particular unveiled their newest home audio system featuring the latest in Dolby Atmos technology.
What’s so incredible about this setup is the massive sound produced from relatively discreet hardware. The sound bar, measuring a mere 47.24″ x 2.28″ x 5.71″, features 5.1.2 channel sound.
I had a chance to experience the LG SJ9 in all its glory in an enclosed room that highlighted the 3D capabilities of the sound bar.
The rich, robust sound produced is contributed, in part, to the placement of two top-firing speakers that create a stereo experience that is unreal.
Combined with 3 front-facing channels and a 200w wireless subwoofer, the seemingly insubstantial sound system delivers a powerful audio experience that will turn any living room into your own personal theater.
the LG SJ9 comes with Chromecast built-in, giving users the ability to stream all their favorite content directly from their smartphones, laptops and other connected devices.
Here’s a few key features from LG:
- Dolby Atmos
- 4K High Resolution Audio
- 24-bit Upsampling
- Google Cast Built-In
- Spotify Connect
- 4K Passthrough (HDCP 2.2)
The LG SJ9 will be available early spring but an official price has yet to be announced. We’ll be sure to update you when it’s available.
