Reasons why you might like the LG SP11RA Soundbar

Overall Score 6.2 Represents average audio ecosystem compatibility score.

  • Width of 1440 mm
  • Hdmi Arc / Earc

The LG SP11RA is another premium soundbar that offers you an immersive audio experience for movies, music, and gaming, featuring a 7.1.4 channel configuration with dedicated speakers, Dolby Atmos and DTS:X audio formats, AI room calibration, multiple connectivity options, and user-friendly design.

However, it falls into the premium category and will only be affordable to a few. The system also has a separate subwoofer and rear speakers, delivering a soundstage that fills the room which may not be suitable for small spaces since it's a bit boomy on the bass and could benefit from fine-tuning.
