The LG S75Q is one of the best dialogue-focussed soundbars thanks to its center channel. It’s also great for Dolby Digital and DTS content, which DJs with audio content in different formats might appreciate.

Product Snapshot

Overview

The LG S75Q is a top-tier soundbar first made available in 2022. The soundbar features fantastic Dolby Atmos audio support, and owners will be able to stream their audio content through Bluetooth (not Chromecast, Apple AirPlay, or WiFi).

Like most of the best speakers in the market, it also has an EQ adjustment feature that allows users to customize its sound to their preferences. The soundbar ships with a sub-par subwoofer, but its soundstage is decent since it can project sound well across a mid-sized room.

It also gets as loud as 92.5 dB and can fill large, open living rooms with sound. Its connectivity options may not match those of the best soundbars in the market, but they’re decent since they include an Optical port, a HDMI ARC port, a Full HDMI in port, and a USB port for playing content directly from a USB drive.

Consensus

our Verdict

Top-tier testers adore the LG S75Q for its support for Dolby Atmos for immersive movie-watching, plus its ability to reproduce dialogue-focused content accurately and pegged this to its dialogue-focused center channel (out of its 3.1.2 channel setup), which emphasizes vocals when listening to podcasts, audiobooks, music, or TV shows.

Rtings liked that it had a loud max volume for filling up large, open rooms and that it also had EQ presets plus bass and treble adjustments for sound customization. They also complimented its good latency performance as both audio and video output were fully in sync during testing.

The soundbar also supports a wide range of sound formats and is versatile in the kind of digital content it can play.

Consumer Reports described its sound quality as good overall and felt that its bass depth was boomy but not enough to impress those who enjoy bass-heavy music.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t have any voice assistant support or WiFi connectivity. For WiFi connectivity, check out our LG S80QY review.

  • Loud max volume

The LG S75Q is a 3.1.2 setup, while the LG S65Q is a 3.1 setup and supports Dolby Atmos and Dolby Digital Plus content, surround sound technologies that the S65Q doesn’t support. It can also produce a larger soundstage since it has two up-firing drivers. We’ve looked into the LG S65Q in our LG S65Q review.

The LG S75Q’s bass is not as heavy as the Samsung HW-Q800A. Also, the HW-Q800A has WiFi connectivity and the ability to play content through Apple AirPlay, while the S75Q does not. Lastly, the Samsung soundbar supports Amazon Alexa as a voice assistant, but the S75Q lacks that feature.
