Meridian Audio and LG first came together in 2017 to build better audio products to complement LG’s high performance video products. Now the two have created a series of three soundbars that should delight LG video customers.
The partnership, Meridian says, goes well beyond joint feature selection and maybe a little fine-tuning. In this case, the two companies actually jointly engineer the products taking advantage of the unique knowledge set that both partners bring to the table.

Meridian Technologies in the New LG Soundbars
- Meridian “Bass & Space” – a technology that improves the soundstage and reinforces bass response, a weakness in many soundbars
- Meridian “Image Elevation” – a technology that adds to the realism of the performance by using psychoacoustics to make the position of the sound seemingly match the image position on the screen
- Meridian “Upmix” – a technology that is said to improve the overall soundstage of the entire system in a way that increases the “sweet spot” and provides a sense of immersion
“Our 2019 soundbars deliver amazing sound and the convenience of smart AI connectivity, fine-tuned in close partnership with Meridian Audio. The high-quality sound and versatility of our 2019 line-up takes home entertainment to a whole new level. These compelling offerings satisfy growing demand for premium soundbar solutions that provide impressive listening experiences, greater convenience, and stylish, modern aesthetics.”Seo Youn-jae, head of the Convergence Audio and Video Business Division at LG’s Home Entertainment Company
