What people are saying
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Sound My family absolutely loves watching movies and listening to music around the house. This soundbar totally delivers plus there is much more to this soundbar then I expected. I was not expecting the front of the soundbar to have a display to let me know exactly what my sounds effects can be. Even when I shut it down it tells me Good Bye. The subwoofer is amazing and great looking as well. The way it looks is sleek and very elegant looking and blends together with my LG TV as well. I do have to say that my favorite part of this soundbar has to be the Google Assistant. Ever since hooking this soundbar up I have made Google play music for me and work with my TV. This gadget has made our life just a little easier and sound better than ever. I truly believe this is one of the best soundbars out there today and so happy I made the purchase. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Home Entertainment Really loving my LG SL8YG 3.1.2 Channel Soundbar. The sound quality is amazing and set up was a breeze. I opened the package and was able to start listening to music on the soundbar within 10 minutes. The sound is crisp and clear and somehow it encompasses my whole family room. I also added 2 LG surround sound speakers to give it a 5.1 surround feel. The wireless surround speakers linked to the soundbar with ease. Google assistant is also a great addition. I can catch up on the news or listen to a song with ease. Watching movies has also been a wonderful experience. The subwoofer really packs a punch without overpowering the vocals like so many other systems do. Overall I definitely would recommend this soundbar to anyone looking for a medium sized room sound system. It puts out a high quality theater sound and it's sleek design is very stylish. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Initial Review - Pretty Impressed I just got my SL8Y sound bar from LG. I bought it to go along with my 86" TV. I've also been using it with Spotify and the smart features (from Google). I got to say I'm very impressed by the sound quality and the sheer power that this sound bar packs! I compared the sound quality of this sound bar to my speaker from another brand -one famous for their noise-cancelling headphones ;)- so the bar was set very high. The sound is absolutely at the same level. It is no doubt better than other sound bars I've tried. The bass sounds are full, and the equalizer presets (i.e. the one for "movies") highlight the vocals over the background music making it easy to follow the dialog,. In comparison with other sound bars that I've tried, the LG SL8Y is clearly superior. For a smaller room, the "surround effect" is more than enough. If you have a larger room, I recommend adding the two available wireless speakers to get the actual cinematic experience. Also, the fact that the sound bar doubles as a Google assistant is awesome. I removed my old Google mini and use this instead. I control my lights, the A/C, and my music just by speaking to the sound bar. How cool is that? I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest opinion, and I guarantee that my comments are factual and unbiased.

Could hdmi 2.0 get the &quot;earc&quot; function via firmware upgrade? Does this support Dolby Vision?

Asked by: LA1401089
LG has not made any announcements about the LG SL8Y 3.1.2 Channel 440W Sound Bar w/ Meridian Technology &amp; Dolby Atmos receiving a firmware upgrade that will add support for eARC. The Soundbar does not support Dolby Vision. Dolby Vision is a video signal and the Soundbar does not process video. It does support 4K Pass-through which is a feature that allows a video source to pass unaffected through the receiver to a 4K TV without any processing so it will allow a video signal carrying Dolby Vision dynamic metadata to pass through...^IFV

Can the subwoofer be laid flat (on a wood floor) and placed under the couch? If so, would there be any degradation to the sound quality?

Asked by: Melchizedek
Subwoofers are omnidirectional so in most cases, their placement in a room is not an issue unless you have furniture or other objects that are blocking them and the acoustical properties of your room may also affect them. Placing a Subwoofer under a couch is an unconventional placement for a Subwoofer and not something that is tested for so there is no way to predict how the sound would be affected...^IFV
