Summary

LG's SN11RG soundbar is a full-fledged 7.1.4 system featuring Hi-Res audio and Dolby Atmos support, plus other luxuries like built-in Google Assistant and HDMI eARC. Both the subwoofer and rear speakers are designed to automatically connect to the soundbar when plugged into power, though LG has a fail-safe laid out in its manual if for some reason that doesn't happen. LG's AI Sound Pro processor can convert pretty much any incoming sound format - even vanilla stereo - into a full multi-channel output.

The LG SN11RG is a 7.1.4 setup from LG's 2020 lineup. Thanks to its subwoofer and satellites, this soundbar is able to produce an immersive audio experience. While it has a slightly boomy sound profile, it's otherwise fairly neutral, making it well-suited for a variety of audio content. It can get loud too, but there's some slight thumping and compression artifacts present when pushed to its max volume.

Reviewers from t3 have found the following[***]:
LG SN11RG is one of the most expensive soundbars on the planet. It's capable of outputting a colossal 770W of total audio power. The main soundbar has forward-firing left, right and centre speakers, plus speakers in each of its ends that angle sound to create reflected side channels. The subwoofer uses a meaty 7-inch driver that should underpin everything with plenty of rumble. It supports high resolution audio formats up to 192kHz/24-bit.

  • Superb speaker quality

  • Nothing in particular

It also carries true up-firing rear and front drivers to deliver the height effects of Dolby Atmos and DTS:X soundtracks. An AI Sound Pro processor can convert pretty much any incoming sound format - even vanilla stereo - into a full multi-channel output.

Reviewers from whathifi have found the following[***]:
The LG Sound Bar SN11RG offers Dolby Atmos in its non-virtualised, genuine form and the fun of surround sound without all the cabling. The main unit is a sensible height of just 63mm, so will stay out of the way of most TV screens. The soundbar's length should be more carefully considered – at 144cm, you will need a decent section of sideboard or a generous TV unit. The LG Wi-Fi Speaker app is handy for more in-depth features such as Night Time mode and AV sync correction.

Pros[**]
  • Dolby Atmos smarts
  • Easy to set up and use
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
