lg, soundbar, lg eclair, 3.1.2 channel, android

The LG Éclair (QP5) is the company’s smallest to date and wants to prove it can be so much more.

A partnership between LG and Meridian Audio up-mixes two-channel stereo content into immersive, multichannel audio to deliver a wider soundstage for an immersive listening experience with a tonal balance that remains authentic to the original recording.

The soundbar measures 296 x 60 x 126 mm allowing it to sit in front of small-screen TVs comfortably. The sub-woofer unit is far larger meaning it needs space on the floor. This makes it a 3.1.2 channel sound system with a pair of up-firing speakers to bounce sound off the ceiling.

That bit is important for the Dolby Atmos support as the height is used to place the audio for the object’s spatial positioning. But for even better audio quality, the Éclair also supports DTS:X.

The Éclair soundbar delivers 4K HDR10 pass-through support which allows viewers to enjoy 4K content, including Dolby Vision, over streaming services. It also features enhanced audio return channel (eARC) support meaning that the Éclair is packing HDMI 2.1. There's also a USB input, digital optical socket, and Bluetooth 4.0. However, the lack of Wi-Fi means no AirPlay or Chromecast.

There is a lack of voice-control however, meaning no Alexa or Hey Google support.
