SETTING UP AUDIO SOUND OUTPUT

 

 

[LG webOS TV] Sound options

 

LG webOS televisions are designed as standalone entertainment centers with the emphasis on picture

quality, ease of use and adaptability to numerous video sources yet still capable of producing incredible

sound despite body thinness generally not conducive to such.

Some customers however will seek at enhancing the audio experience wishing to immerse themselves

in viewed content on screen by bringing the sound delivery to heights of surround sound through the use

of external audio equipment.

Whichever the pleasure, the LG webOS TV will accommodate providing on-screen menu parameters are

properly set.
