Take movie night to a new dimension, with the Dolby Atmos and DTS:X equipped LG SL8YG.

Sound all around, with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X
Using upward-firing speakers, the SL8YG creates a more immersive sound – just like at the cinema. The SL8YG bounces sound off the ceiling meaning that effects such as heavy rainfall and aircraft flying overhead sound more real than ever. Both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X formats are covered, giving you three-dimensional sound with all compatible discs and streaming services.

Sound sensation - featuring Meridian technology
Responsible for some of the finest home and car hi-fi, Meridian is at the cutting edge of digital audio. With their technology on board, the SL8YG’s digital processing is greatly enhanced, giving you a huge step-up in sound quality. Meridian technology means total precision, with incredible detail and sound effects placed all around your room.

Feel the bass, with a dedicated subwoofer
The SL8YG isn’t just about sound immersion, it’s about power, too. The separate subwoofer gives action movies and music serious muscle. The wireless connection means that it can be placed anywhere in the room, regardless of how close it is to the soundbar (mains power required).

Take it to the next level with optional rear speakers
For even greater sonic thrills, optional wireless speakers are available (model number SPK8-S kit). These sync with the soundbar to give you the true sensation of cinema sound. The wireless speakers use a dedicated receiver, meaning there’s no need for wires running from the front to the back of your room.

Hi-Res Audio playback for sparkling music
At the heart of the LG is a top quality audio system that’s compatible with many Hi-Res music files. Hi-Res sound gives greater detail and a more natural sound. The SL8YG is compatible with a range of HD audio formats, up to 24bit/96kHz.

Smart voice control – with Google Assistant built-in
Voice control has got much smarter with this LG soundbar. To get started simply say, “Hey Google” for easy access to a wide range of voice-controlled searches. Google Assistant integrates with services such as Google Photos and Google Maps to make your soundbar an even greater source of entertainment.

Chromecast built-in
The SL8YG also comes with Google’s Chromecast built-in. Working in conjunction with streaming services such as Spotify, Google Play and Deezer; this lets you hook up with your favourite music from your smartphone or tablet. With TuneIn, you also get access to a massive range of Internet radio and podcasts – all easily accessible.

Let cinema sound fill your room, with the LG SL8YG.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mediocre dialogue We bought this to go with our new LG OLED Tv . The Tv is outstanding the soundbar is a little disappointing. We wanted a soundbar with crisp and clear dialogue particularly at low volumes in our small Tv lounge. The dialogue is almost “ muddy “in delivery. At higher volumes it is a little better and when the subwoofer kicks in it performs really well. I have been told it may require a bit more time for the speakers to “Break In” to date that hasn’t happened

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good sound & configuration options via app. Using through ARC HDMI. Excellent sound and configuration features through the app. I'm not really bothered about the Google aspect as I already use Apple Homekit and Alexa. Movie mode really jumps out, although this mode increases the volume considerably - turn down before engaging! Being a long-term owner of a Meridian hifi setup I was pleased to discover the company worked with LG to produce this soundbar which shows in the performance. A point to note: my experience with Meridian products is that the sound may be a little disappointing and slightly harsh to begin with but once the system has bedded in after a few days it really comes into its own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LG. Life's not bad! I bought the LG to replace a Polk Magnifi SR 5.1 which developed a non repairable fault. Richer Sounds were good at refunding money. I found the LG slightly tricky to set up because the Google Home app wouldn't update the software on the LG at the first attempt. It's strange that you have to have a Google account to set up an LG soundbar! I also bought the LG SL8YG rear wireless speakers. I connected the LG soundbar using an HDMI lead via the arc input from the soundbar to a Hisense tv. Had to tinker quite a lot to get the sound how I wanted. Wireless connections are quick and easy but then you've got to download the LG soundbar app on your phone and play around with the settings especially if you want the rear speakers to work. Sound wise, I've yet to experience the upward firing speakers actually "bring anything to the party". Bass from the sub woofer is okay but it doesn't really make the floor or walls rumble. I've had an issue with the sound icon appearing on the TV screen and not disappearing. I've rang Hisense for help but all they could say was it was a compatability issue! I will probably buy an LG tv in the future. Summary: A good soundbar with the rear speakers, just wished the upward firing speakers were more effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great LG sound bar Great sound bar at a good price from Richer sounds. Sounds so much better than my old LG sound bar set up especially when you supply it with Dolby atmos content on netflix. The bass and volume and quality of sound produced are brilliant for a decent price. Great service and price from Richer sounds. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sound Bought this on a package deal with an LG Oled. The sound difference is definitely much better than the TV and whilst not as good a full surround sound is good value for money
