LG’s 2022 soundbar lineup features a wide range of models with various capabilities. Sitting near the top of the line is the S80QR, a 5.1.3-channel soundbar system that Amazon is now discounting to $596. That’s an incredible 43% savings on a high-performance system that will fill your room with Dolby Atmos sound.

The availability of a soundbar deal like this one proves that we’ll be seeing some serious sales during this early Prime Day event. It’s so good, in fact, that we’re not sure the company will be able to best it on Black Friday.

When we reviewed the 3.1.3-channel step-down version of this LG soundbar system, the main attraction was an extra up-firing speaker that aided both dialogue clarity and Dolby Atmos height effects. Otherwise, it’s a solid soundbar offering DTS:X processing and both Chromecast and AirPlay 2 wireless streaming.

Our review of LG's 3.1.3-channel version praised its impeccable dialogue clarity, and with this model you're getting the same performance but with more features. Don't miss this sale!

This 5.1.3 model adds wireless rear speakers to the mix, which will result in an even greater sense of surround sound immersion than the 3.1.3 delivered in our test.
