What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Won’t stay connected to Wi-Fi big disappointment Won’t stay connected to Wi-Fi big disappointment. After spending so much money on the soundboard I would’ve expected better quality coming from LG. I’ve sent switch to a smaller Sony brand sound bar that works just as well

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! This sound bar is one of the best I have ever owned over the years. My only complaint is that the subwoofer cuts in and out for no reason and I have no idea why. I’ve moved it around and put it close and it still seems to do it. The rear audio speakers (purchased separately), do the same thing. Other than these issues, I love sound bar so much. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I mainly watch Netflix for my movies. I bought this LG soundbar to use with my New LG 4K UHD NANO TV. If you own a LG TV it has to be a OLED Model after 2018 for the Dolby Atmos To Work properly. HO HO HO Back To BESTBUY I GO. Plus it worked on Amazon Prime But Never Heard much difference than a plane old soundbar. No base to be heard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The sound bar I always wanted I have wanted a sound bar for years. I just could not find one for a good price with features I wanted. The LG SL 9y G sound bar has exceeded all my needs and expectations. It is easy to install and looks great. The WiFi sub woofer is an awesome feature and easy to set up. I do have to admit I had some issues with setting up google home. I was also surprised the mounting hardware did not come with screws for mounting it to the wall. A quick trip to the hardware store and $2.99 later we were in business. The sound quality is perfect for our living room and has made watching television much more enjoyable. Using the TV speakers before made hearing the TV when our air conditioning turned on a challenge. This is not the case with the sound bar. I received this product at a discounted price for my honest review. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound blaster I set up the LG SL8Y 3.1.2 channel sound bar to a 75" LG 4k television and wow, was I impressed. From the unboxing (thank you for not making the unboxing process complicated - 5 minute tops) through installation, everything was easy. I found the sound bar to be of high quality, the install was pretty intuitive and it really doesn't have a big profile to interfere with the viewing. Interestingly, I can use the sound bar with the television speakers to create a movie theatre effect which I have never experienced before so I thought it was cool. I am super excited that the sound bar has minimal cords (two electrical and one optical) as I hate the tangled mess of device cords. Overall, the experience has been awesome. I totally recommend the LG Sound bar! I received this product at a discount in exchange for my honest opinion. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound bar! This sound bar works great. Easy to install. The Bluetooth is amazing. The sound is so clear and we love blasting movies with the surround sound. The Chromecast and Google Assistant are great assets and so easy to connect. I love the design of this sound bar because it looks very sleek. Watching 4K movies is now even more fun because of the sound quality. My kids love to snyc their phones and blast music and dance. I’m thinking of purchasing the additional speakers but I’m not sure if I even need it because the sound bar is just amazing on its own. I can’t wait to buy another for my bedroom! We have this hooked up to our 75 inch LG and it looks beautiful and high quality together! I received this product at a discount in exchange for my honest opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG SL8Y 3.1.2 Channel Sound Bar This LG sound bar is phenomenal, at first when I hooked it up the volume on the bass was all the way down and I said whats wrong. Then I raised the bass volume and I was amazed, the whole room filled with sound. It is truly quality sound from sports to movies or just my favorite shows, I can not imagine how I did without one. *Disclaimer: I received this product at a discount in exchange for my honest opinion.
