LG SKM5Y 2.1 Channel High Res Audio Sound Bar w/ DTS Virtual:X Sound

High Resolution Audio

Digital music for audiophiles, with higher sampling rates and bit depth, both of which can contribute to more accurate, more enjoyable music listening. This certified High-Resolution Audio sound bar can play back lossless stereo audio at up to 24-bit/96kHz quality.

24-bit Upsampling

24-bit sound contains more data than lower-quality audio, and is the standard for high-resolution music. This feature converts lower-resolution audio to a high-resolution 24-bit format for a more premium listening experience.

*Audio quality dependent on original source of content.
*Compatible high-resolution music files required, sold separately.

Wireless Surround Ready

This upgradeable sound bar has been designed to integrate with the SPK8-S optional wireless surround speakers (kit sold separately), adding the premium home theater audio of dedicated rear channels, with wireless convenience.

Surround Sound Expansion

Upgrade to a truly cinematic surround audio experience. This optional kit (SPK8-S) includes a receiver unit that links wirelessly to compatible LG Sound Bars, then connects to a pair of supplied speakers that can be placed behind the listener.
*LG, Vizio, SONY, Samsung, Philips, Panasonic, Toshiba, Sharp

What people are saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Device Audio Cuts Out LG SKM57 I bought the LG sound bar 4 months ago. Connected to LG TV. Whenever the unit is powered over 5 minutes the sound bar and subwoofer volume cuts out. Have tried to different optical cords and have to power down unit. Have tried to obtain a manual from LG site and that tells me no sound bar owners manual, firmware or assistance for my model is available. Can't reach LG support by phone. Won't by an LG product again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK but not WOW I have had about 6 months. Sound is more tone adjust. Not a real crisp sound unless I’m doing something wrong. I tried the EQ on my phone which is where I play most of my music and it has no effect. I’ve tried the cables it came with and also purchased a few others and it changed a little but not enough so I put originals back on. I guess I just expected better from the LG brand.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sound is fine but the wireless is terrible The sound profile of this sound bar is fine but the fact that the wireless for the sound bar isn't dynamic is a huge short coming. The subwoofer is constantly dropping even after moving my wifi devices. It is basically unusable. I was going to buy the wireless rear speakers but after this I probably won't consider an LG soundbar with wireless again.

Is this soundbar compatible with the LG 65UN7000PUD TV?

Asked by: newlgctmr
The LG SKM5Y 2.1 Channel High Res Audio Sound Bar w/ DTS Virtual:X Sound is a Bluetooth-enabled Sound Bar that can be paired with any of our LG Smart TVs that also support Bluetooth for a wireless Bluetooth connection. The LG UHD 70 Series 65 inch 4K HDR Smart LED TV, Model # 65UN7000PUD is not a Bluetooth-enabled TV so it cannot be paired with the Soundbar, but the Soundbar also features an Optical Digital Autio Input that can be connected to the TV's Optical Digital Audio Output and it also features an HDMI Out (TV ARC) that can be connected to the TV's HDMI ARC (HDMI 2) port...^IFV

Can I connect my echo speaker to this sound bar via bluetooth?

Asked by: Pattyjy
The LG SKM5Y 2.1 Channel High Res Audio Sound Bar w/ DTS Virtual:X Sound only receives Bluetooth signals so it can be paired with devices that transmit Bluetooth signals. If your Echo Speaker transmits Bluetooth signals, you will be able to pair it with the SKM5Y, but if it only receives Bluetooth signals like the SKM5Y, it will not work with the Soundbar...^IFV
