It’s rare to find a soundbar that combines elegant design with a bombastic movie performance, but that’s precisely what LG has produced with its Dolby Atmos-compatible SJ9 flagship. Two upwards-firing speakers cut into the top of the bar provide the Atmos height thrills, in tandem with a wide, detailed soundfield from the rest of the drive array, and rich bass via the wireless standalone subwoofer. Connectivity includes 4K/HDR-capable HDMI, while wireless hookup is catered for by Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Music lovers can enjoy LG’s MusicFlow app and the soundbar’s built-in Chromecast tech for streaming and multiroom, while 192kHz/24-bit hi-res upscaling squeezes every last detail from your tunes.

Slim, elegant industrial design that sounds every bit as good as it looks.
