Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sounds great I bought this to go with a new QLED tv. It's great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds great. Easy to use Have had it about a month and I’m very happy with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Good clear sound, Sub woofer very sub par. I can't seem to get good bass response , this system with the optional rear speakers sounds very thin with all the volume up on the bass, and sub. disappointing. Wish LG could do an update with more control over the bottom end.

Does the SK9Y support Dolby Vision Pass-through? I have an Xbox One S plugged into the SK9Y which then is connected to my Vizio E70-F3 but I'm losing Dolby Vision in Netflix. I can connect my Xbox to my TV directly but then I lose Dolby Atmos :(

Asked by: Jordan P
The LG 5.1.2 ch High Res Audio Sound Bar with Dolby Atmos®, Model # SK9Y does not have Dolby Vision Pass through, but that shouldn't matter for a Soundbar. It will only matter if you have a Dolby Vision enabled source device, Dolby Vision encoded content plus a display that is capable of processing the Dolby Vision signal. If your TV supports Dolby Vision, just connect its HDMI ARC(TV ARC/HDMI OUT) to the HDMI ARC on your TV if it has one and connect your source device (4K Blu-ray Player) via HDMI to your TV. ^CP

Will this get any Meridian audio tuning as well? I've seen all of the new 2019 LG soundbar have the Meridian audio features and DTS X as well. I have no issues even if i have to pay for a firmware updates.

Asked by: KaiserJeff1986
The LG 5.1.2 ch High Res Audio Sound Bar with Dolby Atmos®, Model # SK9Y does not feature Meridian technology and will not receive any firmware upgrades to support the new features that will be extended to the 2019 SL10YG, SL9YG, and SL8YG Soundbar models...^IFV

I bought the SK9Y about a month ago. Absolutley love the sound bar but hate the subwoofer. Is there a better sub that LG makes that will pair to it? Or will any Wireless Sub connect?

Asked by: Cblake02
The LG 5.1.2 ch High Res Audio Sound Bar with Dolby Atmos®, Model # SK9Y does not support Multi-Pairing so you can only pair it with the included Subwoofer. You cannot add a second Subwoofer.

Is there a bracket to mount the sound bar to the TV mount so that it 'floats' with the TV? I've looked various places online and see generic brackets but nothing specifically for this sound bar. We'd like to not have it attached to the wall if possible.

Asked by: ATxAndie
The only brackets that LG makes for the LG 5.1.2 ch High Res Audio Sound Bar with Dolby Atmos®, Model # SK9Y that come as included accessories are Wall Mount Brackets...^IFV

I have the LG55C8 TV and the SK9Y soundbar, and when trying to stream with Netflix app (I have premium account) or the Double Access App, I'm not getting Doubly Atmos from the soundbar. Have them connected on Arc. What could be wrong?

Asked by: romaof
You can't get Dolby Atmos through arc. It needs to be e-ARC which almost nothing supports right now. You need to go directly from the streaming device to the soundbar to get Dolby Atmos.

Will sk9y pair with uc6030 tv

Asked by: Wft54
Hello Wtt54. Regrettably, we are not familiar with the "uc6030' TV. If the TV supports Bluetooth, you will be able to pair it with the LG 5.1.2 ch High Res Audio Sound Bar with Dolby Atmos®, Model # SK9Y which also supports Bluetooth (ver. 4.0). The Soundbar features an Optical Digital Audio Input that can be connected to the Optical Digital Audio Output on your TV if it has one. It also has an HDMI 2.0 Out that is HDCP 2.2 compliant, so if the ports on your TV are HDMI 2.0 ports and they are HDCP 2.2 compliant, you will be able to connect it to the Soundbar...^IFV
