LG is using CES 2017 for the opportunity to detail its new expanded home audio lineup that includes “the next generation of TV sound bars.” The new SJ9 leverages Dolby Atmos technology to deliver what LG believes to be a top-grade home theater experience. A sleek metal design houses two up-firing speakers designed to bounce sound off the walls, “surrounding the listener from every angle.” It also offers support for high resolution audio with 24-bit upscaling that is designed to increase the quality of music files.
Also joining the SJ9 is the new SJ7 Sound Bar Flex system that features a two-piece design that can stand alone as separate speakers or as one unit. When placed apart, these speakers can provide a front and rear surround sound experience. The wireless design can also be placed together like a traditional sound bar. LG has designed the two speakers separately with one housing the inputs while the other has a built-in battery for wireless use. Final pricing has yet to be announced but we expect the entire lineup to ship later this year.

The LG SJ9’s 4K High Resolution Audio is compatible with high quality lossless audio files, allowing it to faithfully recreate sounds that were originally recorded in the studio. In addition, the SJ9’s 24-bit upsampling feature increases the quality of standard audio files to 24bit/192Hz, sharpening the subtle details and nuances of each track. The SJ9 also supports 4K Pass-Through to deliver pristine audio without compromising image quality, ensuring a perfectly synchronized audio visual experience.
