24-bit Upsampling

24-bit sound contains more data than lower-quality audio, and is the standard for high-resolution music. This feature converts lower-resolution audio to a high-resolution 24-bit format for a more premium listening experience.

*Compatible high-resolution music files required, sold separately.

Dolby Atmos®

Dolby Atmos®

Discover a more immersive home theatre experience in any room. Unlike traditional Dolby Atmos® sound bars, which direct overhead effects upward to be reflected off the ceiling, the SK8Y realistically virtualizes these height channels to add thrilling surround sound to select movies and TV shows.

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.

Does this sound bar support 4k/hdr passthrough via ARC? For example, Xbox one x to sound bar to LG C7 65in TV. Would this work with watching 4k/HDR content?
