LG's Eclair is a new super-compact soundbar

04 May 2021 | Rasmus Larsen |

Pastries? From LG? Not quite. Eclair is the nickname of the company's new ultra-compact soundbar with a wireless subwoofer. LG claims that it can deliver 3.1.2-channel audio in Dolby Atmos.

3.1.2-channel soundbar

It is just 30 centimeters long and 5 centimeters tall but the South Korean company has still managed to cram in five units including two up-firing units. For more powerful bass, LG has paired it with an external subwoofer.

LG's new soundbar is intended for movie watching and console gaming. It has been designed to appeal to buyers who seek a discreet solution and it will compete with compact solutions like the Sonos Beam and Samsung's S-series of soundbars. It is specified as 3.1.2-channel soundbar with a total output of 320 Watt. It supports both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X and connect to TVs via HDMI ARC or eARC. It also has a single HDMI 2.0 input, if the user want to connect a media player or console directly.

Small size, medium price

Eclair is on the other not designed as a music system. While it supports Bluetooth, it lacks WiFi solutions such as AirPlay, Chromecast, and Spotify Connect. FlatpanelsHD not had a chance to listen to the small pastry-shaped speaker either since all events have been virtual for the last year or so. And it will not be cheap either. LG expects it to sell for around 700 Euro in Europe and something similar in the US, despite its small footprint. The company emphasized that it also offers a full line-up of traditional and more potent soundbars. FlatpanelsHD has previously reported on LG's 2021 soundbar line-up. LG Eclair will be available in black and white starting from July.
