After using the LG G4 OLED TV for a few months, it’s clear that it stands out as the best OLED TV available. Many new owners likely share this sentiment. While the TV itself is excellent, integrating it with a native LG surround sound system designed specifically for the LG G4 can enhance the viewing experience significantly. LG sent over the S95TR sound system for review, a Dolby Atmos-compatible 9.1.5 setup featuring a triple up-firing soundbar, a dedicated subwoofer, and two wireless rear speakers. This system promises a comprehensive and immersive audio experience.

Unboxing the LG S95TR is an exciting process. The system includes an 810-watt Dolby Atmos soundbar, two wireless rear speakers, and a subwoofer, all boasting a sleek black design. Additional accessories include a remote control with batteries, a wall mount bracket, an HDMI cable, manuals, and warranties. The wireless rear speakers are particularly noteworthy, offering a clutter-free setup that complements the full Dolby Atmos surround sound system.

Setting up the system involves connecting the components and using the LG soundbar app to run an AI room calibration test. This test measures the room’s dimensions and detects speaker placement, optimizing audio settings for the specific environment. This user-friendly process enhances the overall setup experience, making it straightforward and efficient.

The AI room calibration feature is a standout innovation. It adjusts audio settings based on the room’s layout and furnishings, ensuring optimal sound quality. This feature is crucial because every room differs in size, ceiling height, and furniture placement. AI calibration saves users time by automatically optimizing settings, though manual adjustments are still an option for those who prefer a hands-on approach.

Post-calibration, the difference in audio quality is evident, with balanced volume and improved spatial sound distribution. The feature ensures that regardless of the room’s configuration, the audio output is always optimized for the best listening experience.

Testing this feature revealed a substantial improvement in audio quality. Dialogue became clearer, sound effects were more pronounced, and the overall listening experience was significantly enhanced. The ability to use the TV speakers in conjunction with the soundbar and rear speakers ensures that no audio potential is wasted, making for a more engaging and immersive viewing experience.

Whether it’s movies, gaming, or nature documentaries, AI Sound Pro adjusts the audio settings to highlight the most important elements, creating a richer and more immersive experience.

The smart up-mixer feature converts two-channel audio into virtual multi-channel sound, utilizing all available speakers to their fullest potential. This ensures that even standard audio content is given a surround sound treatment, enhancing the overall listening experience.
