Last year we didn’t get the chance to test LG’s flagship soundbar, so it’s been two years since our last taste of LG’s best offering, the SN11RG, in the soundbar market. But this will change today because in our LG S95QR review, we have the new 2022 flagship, and we are here to see what, if any, improvements LG has managed to make this time.
Being a flagship soundbar means incorporating all the latest and most remarkable technologies, but these yearly release updates have been minor. But the S95QR piqued our interest due to the inclusion of a center Atmos channel, which is something new even in flagship units, along with IMAX Enhanced and a whole set of extras making this soundbar a force to be reckoned with.
But before we start our tests, let’s see real quick what this new monster of a soundbar brings to the table. The S95QR is, in essence, a 9.1.5 channels unit that features wireless surround speakers and a subwoofer with 810 watts of power. It supports Dolby Atmos, DTS: X, and IMAX Enhanced and comes with a massive set of extras, including Chromecast, Airplay 2, Tidal, Spotify Connect, High-Resolution Audio, USB and Bluetooth playback, voice control, and mobile app support.
