The Boomy But Otherwise Neutral LG SP11RA Soundbar, What Makes It Tick?

There are various soundbars on the market, each claiming to be perfect but none is yet to hit the level of the LG SP11RA Soundbar. The beauty, convenience, and performance that comes with it make you want to always have it.

LG SP11RA Soundbar first comes with an AI Room Calibration feature. The feature can automatically optimize audio reproduction based on the unique acoustic characteristics of your listening space, and EQ presets to help you customize its sound.

You moment you turn it on, you will realize that the soundbar gives a slightly boomy but otherwise neutral sound profile suitable for listening to lots of different types of audio content.

What is more, it supports Dolby Atmos content. “Dolby Atmos is a surround sound format that goes beyond the 5.1-channels of Dolby Digital to add “height” channels for improved realism. Atmos is a competitor to atmospheric format DTS:X, which has much less disc-based content than Atmos, and no streaming support.” (Source: Cnet Tech).

The soundbar’s discrete center channel helps to accurately localize dialogue to a pinpoint location for a more immersive sound. The fact that it also supports surround content as well as Dolby Atmos content, makes it a one-stop point for movie lovers. What is more in a movie than a good and clear sound?

The LG SP11RA Soundbar gives a stunning first impression as soon as you see it. It comprises a wireless sub, wireless rears, and the main soundbar that makes it stand out and give a feel and sense of ownership. What is more, it is slim enough to fit under most modern TVs, sleekly finished, and robustly built. 

The main features that strike you are:

  • Power: 770W
  • Speakers: 7.1.4
  • Dimensions: Main soundbar – 1443 x 63 x 146mm/Subwoofer 221 x 390 x 312.8mm/Rear – 130 x 211.5 x 191.2 (W x H x D)
  • Connections: Two HDMI inputs, one HDMI output with eARC, optical digital audio input, USB port, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi
  • Subwoofer included

For those who pride themselves in owning something that illuminates organic beauty, this soundbar puts your fears at rest. The smooth dark gray finish of the soundbar’s top edge contrasts beautifully with the textured, grille-like finish of its sides, too, and it’s good to find a little LED read-out on the front to help you keep track of volume, selected input among others.

At the same time, the finish of the rear speakers picks up on the key design cues of the main soundbar, too – though inevitably their shape has more in common with traditional bookshelf speakers. The beauty about it is that it can also play a wide range of hi-res audio formats, as well as support network streaming via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.
