New LG S95QR flagship soundbar with five upward-facing Atmos speakers

In the line of soundbars, LG has introduced a new flagship model – S95QR in 9.1.5 – channel configuration and a total power of 810 watts.

One of the main features of the LG S95QR, the manufacturer considered the central emitter directed upwards (on the soundbar itself). In addition, LG drew attention to two side upward-facing speakers and two of the same modules built into the rear satellite speakers.

There are a total of five upward-pointing emitters. According to LG, this approach resulted in cleaner dialogues and the most immersive sound overall.

Another important distinction of LG S95QR is satellite speakers: these two speakers not only have built-in ceiling speakers, but also emitters responsible for the side/rear channels.

In terms of formats, the LG S95QR works with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. The soundbar should work seamlessly with most modern game consoles and media players. For convenience, the soundbar has a built-in automatic sound calibration system for the room.


LG S95QR has VRR and ALLM

LG also drew attention to the new soundbar’s ability to pass HDR signal from VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) and ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode). Additional bonuses include support for Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant and the ability to play Lossless music in multichannel mode (you will need an optional Wowcast module) using the Meridian Audio Horizon technology. The set includes a subwoofer. The total system power is 810W.

The LG S95QR will be unveiled at CES 2022. Price and launch date have yet to be announced.
