The LG S95QR should suffice for anyone looking for superior audio performance, with its only significant con being the lack of a graphic equalizer. The soundbar is a great pick for anyone who can afford it.

Product Snapshot

Overview

The LG S95QR was first launched in early 2022 as a premium 9.1.5-channel sound system. Its setup is similar to most top-end speakers, combining a soundbar, a subwoofer, and two satellite speakers.

Since it supports Dolby Atmos content, it’s an excellent pick for full immersion when watching movies or TV. Its soundstage is also wide enough for all-around sound, and its subwoofer emits that deep rumble that movie lovers would enjoy.

The soundbar has excellent wireless connectivity options since users can connect their devices to it through Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Apple AirPlay, or Chromecast.

This is in line with what the best soundbars offer, and its physical input options nclude an Optical Audio In input and four HDMI ports.

The soundbar works with audio formats, such as Dolby Digital and DTS, and both the subwoofer and satellites connect to the soundbar wirelessly for added convenience when setting them up.

Consensus

our Verdict

The LG S95QR is a 9.1.5-channel soundbar that delivers an immersive, well-balanced sound thanks to a six-channel setup, and with support for both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X audio formats, it creates an immersive listening experience for TV or movies.

Despite lacking a graphic EQ for sound adjustment, the soundbar also has impressive wireless connectivity, supporting Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Chromecast, Apple, and Spotify streaming, and its port selection is great, with an Optical Audio in port, with two Full HDMI ports and a USB port for files.

The soundbar features a wide range of sound enhancement features, but there’s no voice assistant support.

Overall, this LG soundbar should suit anyone looking for an enjoyable listening experience, as it ticks all the boxes that a reliable sound system should.

Reason to Buy

  • Great sound quality
    • The S95QR delivers a cinematic watching experience for movie lovers at home thanks to a 9.1.5-channel setup for multidimensional sound. It also has a good bass output that makes action scenes a lot more immersive.

  • Satisfying surround sound
    • The LG S95QR has a satisfying surround sound output, as it supports both Dolby Digital and DTS content, and with a 9.1.5 channel setup, it also offers an immersive listening experience.

  • High vocal clarity
    • Both vocals and lead instruments are clear and well articulated with the S95QR, making it great for both music and dialogue-focused listening.

  • Strong bass response
    • The S95QR’s bass response is pretty strong, as it has a boomy sound profile out of the box, and its bass range is thumpy and thunderous.

  • Smart features/connectivity
    • Support for both WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity makes the S95QR well-adaptable to wireless music streaming. The soundbar also allows for customization through the LG Soundbar App and supports voice control through Amazon Alexa & Google Assistant.

Reason to Avoid

  • No graphic EQ
    • There’s no graphic EQ for more precise sound customization.

  • High latency
    • At 131ms, the S95QR has a very high latency, making it inferior compared to other alternatives in our certified list of tested soundbars.

The LG S95QR is a 9.1.5-channel sound system, and this is because its two satellite speakers both come with extra channels, unlike those of the LG SN11RG, which is a 7.1.4 setup. Also, the LG SN11RG ships with a Digital Optical Cable, while the LG S95QR only comes with a HDMI wire. Feel free to learn more about it by going through our LG SN11RG review.

The main difference between the LG S95QR and the LG S90QY is that the S95QR ships with two satellite speakers, while the S90QY doesn’t come with any. The S95QR also gets slightly louder than the S90QY at max volume, but if you’re interested, we’ve covered it in our LG S90QY review.

The LG S95QR is nowhere as loud as the Samsung HW-Q990B, as it peaks at 91.3 decibels, while the Samsung sound system gets as loud as 101 decibels. The Samsung soundbar also has a graphical equalizer, unlike the S95QR, and it also supports content streaming through Chromecast while the S95QR does not.
