What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound! I recently bought this sound bar to go with a new LG TV. The sound from this unit is amazing. Truly sounds like a theater. The sound bar has a very clean sound and the subwoofer adds a great deal of depth. Very happy with this purchase. In fact, I find myself listening to music through it with a Bluetooth connection to my phone. I would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product I bought my SP9YA less than a month ago at BestBuy and so far it has worked pretty well. The only thing I wish could be better is the subwoofer i.e. a little more punch on the bass level.

I have a 65c8pau. It only has HDMI Ark. No eArk. Will I get the FULL sound benefits from the sound as a result of not having HDMI eArk.

Asked by: GaryRK
What is the full model number for the TV in question? Are you inquiring about the LG C8PUA 4K HDR Smart OLED TV w/ AI ThinQ® - 65'' Class (64.5'' Diag), Model # OLED65C8PUA? That is a 2018 model and HDMI eARC functionality was a new feature first introduced in 2019 LG OLEDs. The eARC standard, which is a part of HDMI 2.1 improves on the original HDMI ARC in a few key ways including supporting Dolby Atmos. While Dolby Atmos can be passed over regular ARC today (via Dolby Digital Plus) eARC offers improved bandwidth for higher-quality Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio streams, including Dolby Atmos. HDMI eARC also has lip-sync compensation built-in. This feature was optional in ARC but is now required. This lets you more easily line up the sound with the visuals, something that has always been an issue in the modern TV era. To take advantage of the new features, both pieces of gear must be eARC compatible. The main differences between ARC and eARC lie in bandwidth and speed. The enhanced version of the Audio Return Channel has a much higher bandwidth than its predecessor. Bandwidth represents the range of frequencies or amount of data that is being transferred at a time. Higher bandwidth translates into a higher amount of data that can be transferred. Higher bandwidth also means that digital audio signal doesn’t have to be compressed and is much more detailed, rich, and vibrant. As a result, with an eARC channel, you can enjoy the depth of movie-theatre-quality surround sound via formats such as DTS:X and DOLBY ATMOS. Due to the limitations of regular ARC, only eARC can currently process these formats. If your Soundbar or receiver is compatible with eARC but the TV is only compatible with ARC, you will still be able to listen to audio through your Sound system. However, due to bandwidth limitations, you will not be able to experience the maximum high-bitrate audio from the source...^Ivan

Hello, I just bought an LG G1 with this soundbar in order to use the exclusive advanced functions by combining the two products. While using the TV Shared mode I'm experiencing worse performance compared to Soundbar Control Mode, shouldn't be the best?
