What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the price So I am a big sound freak and usually compare soundbars to see which one will offer me a great experience without breaking the bank. The SK8Y offers a easy setup and matches my LG 65" TV. Pros: Dolby Atmos Great Subwoofer Cons: Wifi sometimes hit or miss Center dialogs sometimes seems low (Compared to my Polk Audio MagniFi Mini Soundbar)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sounds for a small space for not a lot of mo Happy overall with the sound and ease of set up. Built-in Chromecast is a little buggy, but chalk that up to a Google problem and not LG. On every other setting the sound is perfect. However, i have several Google home and mini units and the wifi in the sound bar drops from the Google home group daily. If i unplug and replug the speaker it works as intended. But the next day that setting is lost and have to unplug and replug again. Again, think it's a Chromecast issue bc the other settings work fine for movies, TV etc. Hopefully the next Chromecast update will fix it. Added the rear speakers to complete the system to get the full 4k and Dolby Atmos experience. Love it! It works very well with the LG OLED and Blu-ray player. Very happy with the purchase.

Hi Keile. We regret to read about the issues that you are experiencing with your LG 2.1 ch High Res Audio Sound Bar with Dolby Atmos®, Model # SK8Y to your LG Smart TV. What is the model number for your LG Smart TV. Does it support Bluetooth? You can also use the Optical Digital Audio Input on the Soundbar to connect it to the Optical Digital Audio Output on the TV using an optical (Toslink) cable. If your TV supports Bluetooth and you need some assistance connecting it to the Soundbar, please contact our Support Center at (800) 243-0000, or you can also visit us at and use the LG Chatbot to get assistance...^IFV

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?
