What people are saying
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound I bought this on an impulse and I'm so happy that I did!
Date published: 2019-09-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Movie theater sound! I have had this system for a few months now. It is great! The sound is amazing! It sounds the same as other expensive surround systems. The 2 upfacing speakers work just like side and rear surround speakers. The bass is full. I am one who likes to feel movies. It is crazy the sound that comes from a sound bar. I was never a fan of sound bars before hearing this for the first time. It sounded good at Bestbuy but sounds much better in a smaller space, such as a living or media room. Highly recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great, but with a Fatal Flaw! After waiting until 2019 when the new model would be released, and ensuring that all I read about the center volume/dialogue issues from LG and the online experts about the issue being resolved with updates, etc., I made this purchase in late March 2019. To FINALLY get the full effect of the Dolby Atmos Surround, we added an LG 65C8. After watching three 4K/UHD/Atmos pieces, including Pacific Rim from Vudu last night, it became clear that the dialogue volume is still an issue, and from what I am reading, and from contacting customer support twice today, with misinformation given in the first session, and mysteriously losing the connection in the 2nd when the representative told me that LG had done all it can do with this expensive paperweight as far as dialogue goes, I am now believing that my best option at this point is having LG take this back and give me a refund. I love it otherwise, but I can't be satisfied with the potential of this system not being realized. . ..

Can. You connect any Bluetooth subwoofer to the sound bar if you want one with more power?

Asked by: Erichun20
Regrettably, you cannot connect any Bluetooth enabled Subwoofer to the main unit for the LG SK10Y 5.1.2 Channel High-Resolution Audio Sound Bar w/ Meridian Technology & Dolby Atmos, Model # SL10YG other than the one that is designed for the unit...^IFV

Can this sound bar support 4K HDR passthrough at 60fps?

Asked by: r3s1n8
The LG SK10Y 5.1.2 Channel High-Resolution Audio Sound Bar w/ Meridian Technology & Dolby Atmos supports 4K Pass-Through and its HDMI port is HDMI 2.2 compliant. As the name implies, 4K Pass-Through is a function on the Soundbar that allows a video source to pass unaffected through the Soundbar to a 4K TV without any processing. All 4K content from a 4K source or an upscaling 4K Blu-ray player, whether it is carrying static metadata for HDR10 or dynamic metadata for Dolby Vision, must be passed directly to a 4K TV...^IFV

Will Dolby Vision passthrough be added via firmware update at any point? Have Xbox one X going to Sk10y which goes to LG C8. TV Supports DV would be nice if the bar would let it pass through.

There's a review from an "Amber C" below that say this soundbar won't pass through Dolby Vision and another more recent review that implies it will. Which one is correct? Also, what is the latest firmware version for this soundbar?

You say that the SK10Y is matching for TV's 55" and greater.  Exactly how does it match up if the sound bar is 58" wide and the 55" TV is only 48" wide?

Asked by: WoodyToller
What is listed as "TV Matching" (55" and above) in the specifications for the LG 5.1.2 ch High Res Audio Sound Bar w/ Meridian Technology & Dolby Atmos®, Model # SK10Y does not mean that the Soundbar will have the exact same width as the TVs that it is matched with. The match is an aesthetic match...^IFV

I bought a LG SK10Y soundbar and an Apple TV4k. Should I connect the Apple 4k directly to the soundbar or to the 4k LG OLED TV?

I see this sound bar supports 4k pass through. If so, then why wouldn't it also support Dolby Vision pass through?

Asked by: Vape
4K pass-through is a feature that allows a video source to pass unaffected through the LG 5.1.2 ch High Res Audio Sound Bar w/ Meridian Technology & Dolby Atmos®, Model # SK10Y to a 4K TV without any processing, so if that signal is carrying Dolby Vision metadata, that data will pass through the system without compromising image quality, and it is HDCP 2.2 compatible. All the devices in your video signal path must also be HDCP 2.2 compliant for the video signal to pass...^IFV

Where is the best place to locate the subwoofer?

Asked by: Vape
Hi vapourrick. Subwoofers are omnidirectional speakers so they can be placed anywhere you like as long as there is an outlet that is within reach that you can plug the Subwoofer for the LG 5.1.2 ch High Res Audio Sound Bar w/ Meridian Technology & Dolby Atmos®, Model # SK10Y. The Subwoofer also uses Bluetooth technology which has a range of 10m (33 feet) but you want to keep the Subwoofer close to the main unit for a stronger signal to the Subwoofer. Subwoofers emit low-frequency signals that travel closer to the floor...^IFV
