”The LG OLED55E9PLA produces just the kind of picture we’d hoped for and supplements it with excellent sound quality.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ – 5 Star review. Tested at £2799

See the OLED difference for yourself

With advanced Pixel Level Dimming, OLED remains one of the best options for class-leading picture quality. Unlike LED screens, OLED doesn't require backlighting, so the colour is consistent right across the screen, with greatly enhanced contrast levels.

Powerful new processor at its heart
With the a9 Gen 2 processor at its heart, this 55 inch LG TV is not only faster at processing but brings about a whole host of new features. Intelligent Artificial Intelligence (AI) benefits both picture and sound for the clearest images and audio yet. Combined with HDMI2.1 sockets, the powerful processor also supports exciting new picture technologies, such as High Frame Rate and Dynamic HDR.

HDMI 2.1 connectivity for wider support
Featuring HDMI 2.1 sockets gives this LG greatly enhanced connectivity. HDMI 2.1 supports Dynamic HDR. This lets the TV adjust the picture frame-by-frame for active control of the contrast. For gaming and VR headset use, Variable Refresh Rate and Quick Frame Transport aim to reduce lag and provide a smoother and more responsive feel. HDMI 2.1 also supports eARC – an upgraded Audio Return Channel that supports DTS:X and Dolby Atmos from TV to audio system.

AI Picture
Artificial Intelligence comes of age with LG’s Deep Learning AI Picture. This clever system compares the signal with a table of content and automatically adjusts the picture quality to the most accurate image possible. Using an ambient light sensor, the system adjusts screen brightness and other criteria (with HDR signals). The result is greater realism with a cleaner and sharper picture.

AI Sound
If you fancy a more cinematic sound from your TV, then LG’s AI Sound should be music to your ears. Using AI algorithms, AI Sound up-mixes two-channel audio to virtual 5.1 sound – giving a much more immersive sound stage. The powerful a9 Gen 2 processor also optimises the sound based on content type – giving clearer vocals with news and dramas. The powerful AI can also take account of your room’s acoustics and layout and adjusts to give the cleanest sound possible.

Dolby Atmos compatible sound
With a Dolby Atmos processor built-in this LG OLED 55” TV decodes Atmos sound tracks - giving you the potential for an even more immersive sound. With its built-in 4.2 speaker set-up and a powerful 60 watt amp, the OLED55E9PLA sounds a step-up on the usual TV sound.

Upgrade to wireless surround sound with WiSA*
WiSA stands for Wireless Speaker & Audio. The system wirelessly streams sound up to 24bit 96kHz, 8-channels and includes Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. WiSA is flexible as you decide which speakers you want and where you want them – they don’t even have to be from LG. Simply look for WiSA supported speakers and decide how you’d like your audio to sound. *Separate dongle purchase required.

Sleek Picture-on-Glass design
LG's super-stylish Picture-on-Glass design consists of an ultra-thin panel with a translucent glass back. Viewed from the side, the TV's panel is little thicker than a pane of glass - but a lot more exciting to watch!

Now featuring Apple AirPlay 2 and Apple TV app
With support for Apple AirPlay 2, this LG 55 inch TV lets you effortlessly stream from your Apple device. Even better, support for Apple’s TV app means you can enjoy Apple’s 4K HDR content – featuring top quality Dolby Atmos and Vision. Support for Apple’s HomeKit makes this LG highly compatible with the whole Apple system.

Smart voice control – ThinQ AI integrates with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa*
Voice control has got much smarter with this LG TV. Press the dedicated voice mic button and ThinQ AI decides if the TV’s software or Google Assistant handles the command. Google Assistant is capable of changing the channel and input via voice command. It also integrates with services such as Google Photos and Google Maps to make your TV an even greater source of entertainment. As an alternative, direct voice control via Amazon Alexa is also set to be an option from mid/late 2019. *Alexa built-in upgrade due later in the year.

Smarter than ever and still boasting a class-leading picture quality, the LG OLED55E9PLA remains a top TV choice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Picture A very good TV but slightly underwhelmed with HDR.
Date published: 2020-08-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picture is out of this world I've had my TV for a few weeks now and thought I would give my honest opinion of it. I was blown away by the crisp, clear images and the blackest of blacks, don't just take my word for it go along to your nearest Richer sounds store and take a look of the picture for yourself. I have aspired to have and OLED tv for ages now but was put off by the price, as the cost of the OLED panels come down so do the cost of the televisions. I have finally bit the bullet and got myself an LG E9 (55") and what can I say...mind was truly blown, I really can express how good these OLED tv's are. I watched Star Wars: The rise of Skywalker on 4K blu ray last night and was left with a little tear in my eye. I first watched the film at the cinema and didn't expect too much when watching on a tv in my living room but how wrong I was, equally as good as, if not better (I had a fridge full of beer which you don't get at the local Showcase), I have a really good A/V system with full atmos speaker set up and have to admit that it'll be a long time before I venture to the cinema again. The tv it's self also has really good sound with the in built sound bar. Would I recommend this TV? Yes, yes I would. Would I recommend Richer Sounds? Without doubt, but don't just take my word for it, get yourself along to your local store and check them out for yourselves. Dean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic picture quality I am delighted that I bought this TV, the picture quality is stunning, the HDR option for gaming is incredible. The TV is so thin and looks amazing, the tech in this TV is future proof. If you are in two minds about spending this amount on a TV, don’t be as this TV is amazing. Also Richer Sounds are fantastic to deal with as always.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colours, vibrance, true black I had my eyes on an OLED screen for a while and do not regret going for the LG (following a 5 year old LG 55" LED screen). Intuitive operating system and very responsive, seamless integration with the Sonos ARC soundbar and a charm to set up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fabulous looking top notch tv. There’s really nothing to choose between the quality or performance of this years and last years top notch LG OLED panels... I chose last years E9 for its ‘picture on glass’ design over this years new CX model. For a flat panel tv the sound quality is more than passable but still has no chance of beating a separate AV surround system. Dolby Vision IQ is a marketing ploy, it’s merely a new name they have given to the built ambient light sensor in this years sets, all last years models also have it... it adjust the picture to the lighting level in your surroundings, although it’s not advertised it’s a setting in the picture menus. Filmmaker mode is the same as ‘Cinema’ mode on the E9 and the processor is lightning fast. This was a £3k set last year, there was reason for that, it’s a fantastic tv... I would recommend the E9 as an absolute bargain at its new current price... £1400! They have discontinued this design... only a few left, get one before they are all gone! Great service from Richer Sound telesales too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive picture and sound I updated my Samsung 46” for this LG OLED and I am extremely satisfied, I did my research and I found that the LG ticked all the boxes for me. The colours are stunning and crisp, the blacks are just so black and deep. Setting up was very easy and there are sufficient sockets for all my needs. The sound is impressive but I had already decided that I am running this system with the LG SN11RG soundbar instead of my old Bose system. While this is a substantial investment I am very pleased with my purchase, and as I expected Richer Sounds price couldn’t be beaten, 6 year guarantee is a great bonus as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Good The Bad and The Ugly The Good ... There is no doubt that this is a great looking TV! It really does look like a premium product with the lovely clear glass front all the way down the front. Simply stylish and a great addition to any room. Lots of content has amazing clarity and definition. If you want to see every wart and wrinkle this is the TV to have. The kids content of films is very vivid and has a real wow factor with characters imbued with additional life. So why only 3 Stars you say? The Bad .... Having switched from a Panasonic plasma that is now close to 10 years old I was expecting sport to be fluid and no issues with motion. Being a big fan of football and waiting for the highly anticipated restart after the extended Covid delays, I settled down for some Friday Night football. I could not help but be drawn towards the blurring of legs and clear issues with movement that this technology has. Thankfully the old vapour trails following the football have now been resolved but fluid and free flowing it is not. I was expecting more to be honest and what is which the bright lime green grass in "sport mode"? The Ugly ..... I was attracted to the better speakers on the E9 to the C9 but sadly they are poor. The sound is very muffled, cluttered and lacking in any real clarity. Yes, I have now upgraded my system after forking out additional cost on some Sonos but the sound on this TV is definitely ugly on my ears even after spending time adjusting the different settings. I would still recommend this product to my friends who are not into sport.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love LG Love RicherSounds I bought this TV in November 19. It truly is amazing. All of my guests to my house comment on the quality of the picture. Its a real topic of conversation. TBH its too perfect. The clarity of the picture is better than in real life. The detail of objects even in far away scenes is awesome, better than in real life and the sound is great. Its not cinema perfect but still really good.
