Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Sound Bar The sound is great and the subwoofer is enough for my listening environment for now. I wanted to go all out for my main living area but the new offspring proved otherwise with his ability to pull lamps off tables by the cord. After having this for a few months I thought I had exactly what I wanted until I bought my brother in law a soundbar with Virtual DTS-X. I was shock at the spacial feel of DTS-X and feel as though the SK6Y may have been a better option. I thought I read where Virtual DTS-X was able to be a Firmware update on other brands sound bars with DTS decoding, I know I'm only hoping but maybe just maybe LG could look into that? Otherwise it's a great sound bar and does exactly what it is advertised to do. I am adding the rear speakers soon and this might just add the oomph I'm missing to give it 5 Stars.
