The new LG Eclair (model QP5) is a compact oval-shaped soundbar just under a foot wide. It packs a 3.1.2 channel speaker array, claiming Dolby Atmos compatibility and comes with a wireless subwoofer tuned by Meridian Audio. The $599 speaker combo is covered in black or white jersey fabric to blend seamlessly with any modern decor.
Despite its compact size, the LG Eclair delivers powerful performance with Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X support while keeping the peace with neighbors thanks to its low vibration, power bass subwoofer. Measuring only 11.7″ x 2.4″ x 4.9″ — only one-third the width of LG’s previously smallest 3.1.2 channel Atmos sound bar, SP8YA.
LG Eclair’s advanced, 3.1.2 channel system with wireless subwoofer employs Meridian Audio’s tuning and technology to deliver exceptional detail and spatiality. Meridian’s Horizon technology up-mixes two channel stereo content into immersive, multichannel audio to deliver a wider soundstage for a truly immersive listening experience and accurate tonal balance that remains authentic to the original recording.
The LG Eclair offers an enhanced viewing experience thanks to 4K pass-through support which allows viewers to enjoy stunning 4K and HDR content, including Dolby Vision, on their favorite streaming services. What’s more, adaptive LG AI Sound Pro analyzes the content being played and automatically applies the best sound settings, depending on which genre of content the user is enjoying, whether it’s news, music or cinema.
Not only does LG Eclair make sound come alive, but it’s also designed with convenience in mind, requiring fewer cables without sacrificing sound quality. This is possible because enhanced audio return channel (eARC) support allows for the lossless transmission of 5.1-channel, 7.1-channel and immersive audio such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X on compatible TVs. Owners of 2021 LG TVs will also benefit from authentic and clear sound with TV Sound Mode Share, which combines the processing power of LG’s latest α (Alpha) AI processors and AI Sound Pro to reveal rich nuances of the content source.1
Beyond sound performance, LG designed the Eclair not only to elevate the home viewing experience but to reduce its impact on the environment. This effort has resulted in LG Eclair being recognized as an Eco-Product by SGS Société Générale de Surveillance SA of Switzerland. 2
