LG launches compact Eclair soundbar

The LG Eclair is the company’s most compact soundbar to date, offering Dolby Atmos and DTS:X support in a lifestyle friendly package for limited spaces.

With its lozenge style design and jersey fabric finish in black or white, the 3.1.2 channel Eclair soundbar could be a sweet deal for those looking to get a powerful sonic performance for their TVs that are sited in smaller environments - perhaps in kitchens or bedrooms. It sports a less sugary model number of QP5 and is rolling out to North American consumers followed by other regions around the globe.

Despite its size - the Eclair measures only 296 x 59.9 x 126mm, just one-third the width of LG’s previously smallest 3.1.2 channel Atmos soundbar, the SP8YA - it still promises a full audio experience with support for Dolby Atmos and DTS:X along with a neighbour friendly low vibration, wireless bass subwoofer.

LG’s continued partnership with Meridian Audio means the Eclair and its subwoofer are tuned to deliver the highest possible detail and spatiality, while Meridian’s Horizon technology up-mixes two channel stereo content into multichannel audio to deliver a wider soundstage for improved immersion. 

There’s support for 4K pass-through, so viewers can enjoy 4K and HDR content including Dolby Vision, while eARC (enhanced audio return channel) allows for the lossless transmission of 5.1-channel, 7.1-channel and immersive audio formats on compatible TVs.

Meanwhile, adaptive LG AI Sound Pro analyses the content being played - such as news, music or movies -  and automatically applies the best sound settings. Owners of 2021 LG TVs will also benefit from TV Sound Mode Share, which combines the processing power of LG’s latest Alpha AI processors and AI Sound Pro for even greater audio clarity and detail. 

Designed to have a reduced environmental impact, the Eclair is recognised as an Eco-Product by SGS Société Générale de Surveillance SA of Switzerland.  

No price for the LG Eclair compact soundbar has yet been announced.
