LG-HTS.jpgLG are already expected to wow home cinema fanatics at CES 2012 by revealing the world’s biggest OLED display, and now they’re ready to tout a speaker system to bring the audio/visual thrills onto an even footing.

LG’s BH9420PW 9.1 surround sound system is the kit in question, equipped with LG’s latest 3D sound technology.

It uses LG’s 3D Sound Zooming Technology to synchronise audio output with the action on screen, with the aim being to ensure viewers always feel as thoguh they are at the heart of the scenes being displayed.

Designed to be paired with LG’s Cinema 3D sets, it uses “a complex algorithm that analyses the varying depth of numerous on-screen objects displayed on the 3D TV”.

As well as the unique 3D effect DSP algorithm, LG also make use of Sound Field Expansion technology in the BH9420PW, which should boost the horizontal sound field pumped out of the package’s four upright 3D speakers, alongside the more traditional 5.1 set up.

“Whether it’s TVs or audio systems, LG continues to offer the most immersive 3D home entertainment experience possible,” said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of LG Home Entertainment Company.

“Our CINEMA 3D Smart TVs will now be accompanied by a wider variety of CINEMA 3D SOUND HOME THEATER products that offer consumers a complete 3D experience and further strengthen LG’s leadership in 3D.”

The BH9420PW will be shown at next week’s CES in Las Vegas, before hitting stores in March 2012. No word on pricing as of yet.
