LG Winning Double At The 2019 EISA Awards
We are pleased to announce that EISA (Expert Imaging and Sound Association) have named LG’s LG XBOOM Go PK7 Portable Speaker and SL8YG Soundbar as their Best Products, in the Mobile Speaker and Soundbar categories of their 2019 awards. EISA is the world’s largest consumer electronics editorial organization, represented by 55 publications across 29 countries. Here at Meridian Audio, we are delighted to have collaborated on these products, as part of our LG and Meridian partnership. We were able to apply our holistic approach to product development, where every element of the audio signal path is considered, as well as our knowledge and thought-leadership of DSP and psychoacoustic research.
The PK7 utilises the high performance aptX HD Bluetooth codec and boasts two woofers and two meticulously tuned passive radiators, as well as two tweeters. Living up to our expectations of being the pioneers of high-resolution audio, we ensured that the speaker is the perfect party starter, driven by up to 40W of power, providing a strong and generous sound, rich in low frequencies and able to recreate vocals with authenticity and transparent clarity. Splash/dust-proof IPX5 certification and an inbuilt battery pack ensures usage of up to 22 hours.
The LG SL8YG Soundbar enables a cinematic experience to be brought to your living room. Designed for TVs of 49 inches and above and hosting a 3.1.2-channel design complete with a wireless subwoofer, the application of our proprietary DSP Technologies allows the SL8YG the ability to impress even further. Meridian Bass & Space Technology increases the width of the soundstage, Meridian Image Elevation increases the perceived height of the lead instrument or vocal, whilst Meridian Upmix Technology converts 2-channel content to multiple loudspeaker configurations, separating each instrument and increasing the detail of the soundstage. This allows the consumer to experience full immersion and makes listening a more believable experience. Other features include; Bluetooth 4.2, Chromecast, HDMI Connectivity allowing passthrough of 4K HDR sources, Google Assistant for smart home integration and dedicated sound modes.
"We recognise the importance of high-quality audio in creating the ultimate user experience, and we poured all of our accumulated expertise into creating the sound identity of these products.”
