LG's premium SL9 rose above the competition in its category to take home the coveted Best of Innovation title.

LG worked with Meridian Audio to produce the SL8YG, SL9YG, and SL10YG soundbars, thereby creating a "truly unrivaled listening experience".

The collaboration between the two companies goes beyond basic fine-tuning or the adoption of feature-sets, according to LG.

A release from LG today indicates the soundbars will come with enhancements such as the ability to up-mix two-channel audio to multiple, distinct channels without generating any distortion. Both technologies improve the richness of the sound and provide a more complete surround sound experience. With some of LGs premium soundbars supporting high-resolution audio via an advanced processing algorithm that can upscale conventional file formats, the output comes even closer to studio quality. You can also pair them with a separate Wireless Rear Speaker Kit from LG for full 360 sound.

In addition to superior sound, clarity and richness, LG's new lineup of sound bars offer the convenience of AI smart connectivity and voice recognition with the built-in Google Assistant.

As The Verge notes in a piece today, "this means you can control all three speakers using voice commands, asking Assistant to raise the volume, identify the song now playing, or cue up your favorite playlist".

Apart from smart functionality and a sleek, modern design Meridian has been able to develop new strong, multi-dimensional sound technology using new artificial intelligence capabilities. The SL9 is 57mm deep and can be installed flush to the wall for space savings.

The SL9 sound bar that has received an award for innovation from the CES organizer, is one of the models that is set to wow spectators at the trade show. As LG and Meridian put it, the soundbar range isn't just meant to deliver better audio but work toward ennobling your home entertainment setup as a whole.

If you happen to be at CES this year, head to LG's booth in the Las Vegas Convention Center (Central Hall #11100) during CES 2019 to experience it for yourself.
