Whether it be high-quality TVs or speaker systems, LG brings unmatched entertainment straight to any living room and remains a leader in integrating immersive audio connectivity.

"LG has consistently led the way with cutting edge TVs that elevate home entertainment," said Tim Alessi, LG USA’s senior director of home entertainment product marketing. "We were the first company to offer WiSA compatibility built-into our TVs and are pleased to continue to offer this capability in our new 2021 OLED and NanoCell models to allow consumers to connect wirelessly with their audio systems to create the most immersive viewing experience."

These new LG TV models are designed to sync perfectly with WiSA technology, ensuring seamless speaker synchronization, high-fidelity sound and low-latency through a wide-ranging selection of WiSA Certified™ speakers from well-known brands like Klipsch, Enclave Audio and Axiim, among many others.

"We’re excited to see LG Electronics continue to produce TVs with amazing picture quality and additional industry-leading features to enhance cinema-like viewing experiences in the home," said Tony Ostrom, WiSA President. "The 2021 OLED and NanoCell models are extraordinary examples of what sets our Association’s members apart from other CE brands."

All WiSA Ready™ and WiSA Certified™ components work together to deliver multi-channel, wireless audio capabilities creating concert quality sound for the enjoyment of movies, sports, gaming, streaming and more.
