Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sounds OK, but power spec is a joke Overall this sounds OK, But the claimed power spec (360 Watts total, 80 watts per front channel and 200 in the sub) cannot possibly be true. The power consumption of the units (as listed) is 22 watts in the soundbar and 33 in the subwoofer. In reality they probably are no more than 50% efficient. That makes a more realistic power for the speakers as 5 watts per front speaker and 15 watts for the sub. There can be legitimate debates around how to measure power levels in a speaker (what distortion is acceptable) But there is no way the speaks can deliver more audio power than comes in through the wall outlet. I don't know why vendors can't just tell the truth. We can take it..

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great sound , poor voice I know you get what you paid for but my reasoning for buying a sound bar was to first upgrade the sound on my LG oled tv (b7) and to get better voice, I found myself rising the volume way to high to just to hear what is been said and unfortunately this sound bar doesn’t fix it, the only thing is good for is for explosions and making action movies more cinematic but even on those movies you need to hear what is been said so please avoid it if posible I’m really thinking on returning it but how do I justified that to my wife after convincing her of buying it on the first place, oh by the way not all sound bars work with the CEC on this TVs so your choices are limited that way too

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds great I purchased this for a great price at Fry's Electronics. I paired it with an older LG 47" plasma in our game room, and it added a whole new dimension to watching movies and sports in that room. It paired beautifully and sounds great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value on a soundbar I bought this when buying a new TV. I was slightly disappointed in the subwoofer, and I wish it showed volume and bass level, but the overall sound is a great improvement over the TV speakers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SK5Y I am totally satisfied with the product that I purchased. The sound is excellent and the subwoofer meets expectation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Sound Exactly one month ago I had purchased my LG SK5Y soundbar and I am so very satisfied with my purchase. After my connections via hdmi to my television, I was so impressed with the sound that was coming out that soundbar. It has so many musical inputs and I tried them all and was listening for hours. I am truly happy with my purchase.

Can the sound bar be mounted directly to the bottom of an LG TV ? My TV is wall mounted with a "hinged" bracket and it does not appear that it would be easy to attach a the bar to it.

Asked by: JRBF
Unlike the LG 4.1 ch High-Resolution Audio Sound Bar, Model # SJ8 which could be mounted directly under OLED65C7P, OLED55C7P, OLED65B7P and OLED55B7P LG OLED TVs using the LG Sound Bar Bracket, Model # T8, there isn't a bracket that is designed for the LG 2.1 ch High Res Audio Sound Bar w/ DTS Virtual:X Sound, Model # SK5Y. However, it does come with two brackets that you can use the supplied Wall Bracket Install Guide to align the brackets as close to the bottom of the TV as you can get it...^IFV
