Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound I bought this for a Christmas gift for my husband. It’s greatly improve the sound of our TV. Very easy to set up
Date published: 2020-01-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound bar with Holiday Sale discount I ordered the SL6Y on Black Friday 2019, when LG was running a promotion that had it discounted 50%, to go with a new TV (LG 55SM8600PUA). At that price, this was a sweet deal. Likewise for the SPK8-S rear speakers, at 44% off. I wouldn't have paid anywhere close to the list price for either one -- I'd have gone for a higher-rated competitor. I haven't done any comparisons, but I think the sound is quite good for TV shows and movies, especially when there's actual 5.1 source audio. It's certainly a worthwhile upgrade from the internal TV speakers. If you add the rear speakers, it's important to enable Surround mode on the sound bar (I don't know why it's off by default), and I like the DTS Virtual:X mode for an immersive feeling -- it sounds a bit odd at first, but widens the sound field nicely. I also gave the center channel a little boost to +3 dB, and the rear speakers to +6 dB because I have them several feet behind me on the floor. The Music Flow Bluetooth app for Android makes this all easier to set, and it includes a few settings you can't access from the remote: AV Sync delay, DRC dynamic range control for Dolby Audio, Auto Volume, and Night Time mode. The descriptions for many of the functions are imprecise or absent, unfortunately, and the functions are scattered within a slightly messy UI. I do have a few gripes. First, the sound bar apparently supports Dolby Digital, but NOT Dolby Digital Plus. I really think a product at this level should have support for the latter, which would allow higher quality surround audio over HDMI-ARC. (Likewise regarding DTS Digital Surround vs. DTS-HD.) Second, I was hoping for slightly better integration between the LG TV and sound bar over HDMI-CEC/Simplink; it works, but doesn't support volume display on the TV (like LG Sound Sync can on Optical and Bluetooth). Finally, in 2019+ the HDMI 1.4 passthrough is sub-par; it really should support HDMI 2.0 for 4K HDR and HDCP 2.2. The sound bar comes with two small mounting brackets if you want to mount it on the wall. There are two screws provided to go through the bottom of each bracket into threaded holes on the underside of the sound bar. However, I wanted to install the bar under my TV on an above-fireplace mount, so they would move together. It took me a while to find a setup that I liked -- most sound bar brackets didn't seem like they would extend far enough to match the width of the SL6Y's brackets, which go about 34" apart, and require 2 screws each. BTW, the SL6Y manual recommends using M6 metric screws to attach its brackets to the wall, but I found that they wouldn't fit! M5 screws worked fine, and I had a few left over from the TV mount kit. I bought matching M5 washers, fender washers, and lock nuts to affix the brackets securely to the sound bar mount. The size fits nicely under the 55" TV. In the end, everything looks and sounds great!
