What people are saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from In the shop I was happy until about 6 weeks ago when the sound began to lag behind the lips. After 2 calls to LG and all efforts to remedy exhausted, I have brought it in to an electronics repair shop. Since it was over a year old, and past LG's warranty, I had no other recourse. The shop has still not been able to diagnose and remedy after 2 weeks. I'm very disappointed that LG's best soundbar at the time, is experiencing this issue in less than 2 years.

I have  ordered a new LG nano cell tv, it has eARC, I also have an LG SK9Y soundbar,currently connected  to my tv via an HDMI cable, do I need to get an HDMI 2.1 cable for my connection now ?????, is the SK9Y compatible to eARC ????? . Cheers, TonyP.

Asked by: Tony Poth 55
The HDMI eARC port on any device that features one will be clearly marked as arc or HDMI eARC as it is on your new LG Nano Cell TV. You do not need an HDMI 2.1 cable, any HDMI cable with the premium HDMI certification logo. Make sure that the you are using a cable that is a certified Type A, Ethernet high-speed HDMI™ cable. The LG SK9Y 5.1.2 Channel High-Resolution Audio Sound Bar with Dolby Atmos does not have an HDMI eARC port. If you look on the back of the unit, you will see that it has an HDMI ARC port. If your TV is HDMI eARC enabled, but your AV amp or soundbar is only compatible with HDMI ARC, you'll likely get a sound – but the bandwidth restrictions of ARC will mean you won't be able to experience the high bitrate audio that eARC can provide...^Ivan

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

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. If you are in need of any assistance with your current system, check us out on Twitter @LGUSSupport Facebook or you can give us a call at 800-243-0000. ^CP

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.

I have my SK9Y hooked up to my TV through HDMI ARC and every time I turn on my soundbar, it’s muted and have to manually turn mute off.
