LG Dolby Atmos Soundbar: Ultimate Home Theater Sound

by birtanpublished on November 3, 2020

What's up guys this is Mike the Detroit Borg and today we're checking out one of the easiest ways of enjoying the immersive 3d sound of Dolby Atmos in your home the same next-generation audio format used in modern cinemas and this is something I've always wanted to build into my home theater so to test this out Dolby sent me LG's sj9 sound bar with Dolby Atmos although this can be used with most TVs this is a perfect companion for my LG TV which does not have Dolby Atmos built-in and if you want to check out the other available sound bars I'll leave a link in the description below the sj9

Certainly doesn't look like any other sound bar I've ever seen with two up facing speakers less visible are the five speakers surrounding the perimeter in a typical five channel layout with a center channel speaker and forced surround speakers which are aimed and tuned to create immersive audio without the need for satellite speakers this also comes with a powerful 200 watt subwoofer for a total system output of 500 watts that's enough to fill a large family room or home theater and because the subwoofer is wireless you can place this anywhere in the room also included

In the box is an optical audio cable wall brackets and a standalone remote the connections are pretty simple in this case we have an HDMI port with an audio return channel along with a 4k HDMI pass-through we also have an Ethernet port but if you want to go wireless we have dual band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth so on the front is an LED display that lights up when changing inputs or adjusting the vine otherwise it blends in seamlessly with a mesh grille on the front for a very clean and premium looking design there's also a set of physical buttons on the back for

Power volume and input selection along with Wi-Fi setup and more and with support for high resolution audio formats and 24-bit upscaling audio stream through the sambar sounds incredible now the up facing speakers is actually characteristic of Dolby Atmos sound systems which are designed to create a mercy from above and fills in many of the gaps from earlier surround sound formats in this case the speakers are tuned to bounce the sound from a ceiling which is what gives Dolby Atmos that unique immersive experience one of the

Things that makes dolby atmos such an incredible experience is that it can provide precise placement and movement of individual sounds in a 3d space even overhead and because there is much more flexibility in the placement of sound with Dolby Atmos individual sounds can much more precision so it more accurately replicates a real-world experience than traditional surround sound channel formats so generally speaking audio has a more physical presence in the room with depth and substance instead of just blending into the perimeter of the speaker's the only

Problem with reviewing an audio system is that it's difficult to demonstrate the audio quality over a YouTube video but the thing that blows me away about the sound bar is that it manages to create a completely convincing surround sound experience without the speaker's being positioned around the room although many ssam bars and built-in TV speakers have claimed the virtual surround sound this is the only system of experience it actually delivers on the promise and the result is completely convincing so when the plane flies over your head that sounds exactly like the

Speakers are right above you and it goes without saying that the sambar is a massive improvement over the TV's onboard audio even if you didn't think the TV had poor audio to begin with so let's go ahead and do a quick comparison just to show the difference in the power and clarity even if my stereo microphone can't really do justice

So the Adobe Atmos format is becoming more widely available with newer movies and TV shows on streaming services such as Netflix and Vudu and there's also available on Ultra HD blu-ray you can also look for content with Adobe Atmos icon next to the title in the video's description alright guys hope you enjoyed this look at Dolby Atmos and again if you want to find the right sound bar for you at the right price check for a link in the description below thanks for watching and I'll see you again in my next video
