Rated 3 out of 5 by from Won’t stay connected to Wi-Fi big disappointment Won’t stay connected to Wi-Fi big disappointment. After spending so much money on the soundboard I would’ve expected better quality coming from LG. I’ve sent switch to a smaller Sony brand sound bar that works just as well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprised Crazy good coming from those little black boxes. Bass is great. High’s are clear and crisp. Theater sound is now in my home. Whole new ballgame. Tried “hey google” to play some pandora.....What? Awesome

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn’t make sound This soundbar worked great for the first day, but then would require a hard reset every time I turned it on to play sound from any source. I swapped the unit out for a new soundbar at Best Buy, and had the exact same experience. LG and Geek Squad tech assistances could not help fix the sound. I tried with HDMI ARC, HDMI without ARC, optical, BT and WiFi all with the same results. Great sound when it works, but I’m not going to hard reset every time. I am returning the LG soundbar, new LG Nano 4K TV, LG BluRay player and going with a different brand.

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
