Dolby Atmos LG TV

Dolby Atmos is a surround sound technology that allows sounds to be rendered as a 3D object. While watching movies, TV series, playing games, or listening to music, Dolby Atmos can elevate your audio experience. The Dolby Atmos feature is available on many smart devices. In your LG Smart TV, you can enable the Dolby Atmos feature from the Settings menu.
