Need a soundbar for my LG C9
I’m new to the 4K world and never used a soundbar before. I just purchased the LG C9 65 inch TV and am looking for a midrange sound bar for the set. This will go in my bedroom where I have a fairly large room with high vaulted ceilings, which I know is not ideal.
I’ve done a fair amount of research on soundbars and it seems like 2020 is a turning point for systems coming out with the new E-ARC feature. My understanding is that an E-ARC enabled soundbar has higher bandwidth for uncompressed audio, and possibly may solve some of the lip sync issues with using an ARC connection.
If money were no object I would probably get the LG SN9YG for $1,000 plus the two rear facing LG speakers for $129. But my goal is to spend no more than around $600 for the set.
I noticed the LG SL9YG price has dropped down to $429 on Amazon. From what I can tell it’s comparable to the LG SN9YG in size but does not have the E-ARC connector. While it would be nice to have the brand new model, it seems crazy to pay more than twice the price for that feature.
Am I missing anything here? Will I have any lip sync issues with the SL9YG model? I’ve seen a lot of comments about lip sync problems but it’s not consistent as to who is having the problems and under what scenarios.
I currently have a Tivo Bolt, and I watch Netflix and Prime using the Web OS app. Eventually I will buy an Apple TV when the next gen model is released. Would you recommend I go with the SL9YG or look for something else?
