LG Eclair

LG Éclair – New soundbar the size of a loaf of bread

By far the most unconventional model in LG’s 2021 soundbar lineup is the LG QP5 Éclair. This super-compact 3.1.2 configuration is only 30 cm long and 5 cm high. Its white, streamlined body is as unusual as its size.

This is not the first time LG has “miniaturized” at this CES. Earlier the company announced the launch of the most compact OLED TV with a diagonal of 106 cm, and in future plans – to reduce this size to 50 cm!
