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 5 out of 5 by from Excellent surprise Better than expected, bought as a replacement for an LG DPL 5.1 system as fed up with the space taken up and wires, I loved the sound of the old system & was worried the soundbar wouldn’t compete, what a shock it’s so much better! Well worth the change, it’s actually an upgrade

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing. The more I use this sound bar the more it impresses me. First of all it was super easy to set up, then a quick change of some settings on my TV and Xbox and it was ready to go. Watching TV shows and playing games just sound amazing, the sub is incredible too, literally feels like your in a cinema. I couldn’t be happier with this purchase, I’m not saying this is the best sound bar out there, but for what I paid, it’s amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning Sound The set up documentation could be clearer. I am very techy but found the set up confusing with regards to bluetooth and wireless and the HDMI ARC cabling. However, I got there in the end. The sound is brilliant using ARC and Dolby ATMOS and using as a stand-alone speaker via bluetooth to play radio/music is stunning. Very pleased with the purchase. It compliments my recent purchase of the LG 55" Smart TV perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Soundbar, recommend it I should have given 5 stars for this product but the packaging was bad, at delivery the packaging was cellotaped in a manner that makes it looked like used or repackaged. Since I have 2 soundbar delivered same day Bose and LG I decided to try both and I really like the LG. It gave me mostly what I want from a Soundbar cinematic experience when you watch TV, good and clear voice when listening to news. The only thing that need improvement is the software provided, if you are not a lover of google home, then you are left with no useful update to the Soundbar.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from SL8YG The SL8YG produces a really good sound and integrates well with my LG TV. It has beautiful clarity when I play music from my iPhone through it via Bluetooth. However it does lack volume. Quite often American TV programmes do not have the volume or clarity of British programmes and the sound bar struggles. For the price the sound bar should be able to produce a much greater sound to compensate

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent value for money this soundbar was purchased with an LG E9 tv. Check the dimensions before purchase as its actually quite long, and a lot longer than my previous soundbar. Sadly i have this under my tv in an open fronted unit, but it really needs to be out in the open for the top speakers to bounce off the ceiling. Bit of muffled vibration at times due to being enclosed... all my own fault. The wireless bass unit connected perfectly & genuinely within a few seconds. It gives off superb deep boom bass when watching action movies. There are a couple of settings you can change on the remote if watching movies, footy etc, but regular setting is fine in most cases. Movie setting can annoy the neighbours with the boom bass, so trial & error. Value for money, its brilliant.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke in 3 weeks, 2 months on still don't have it I had this sound bar for 3 glorious weeks in early before is stopped working and was covered under warranty, which was great whilst it lasted. I still do not have an LG SL8YG in my possession. More of an expensive holiday romance that a life long partnership.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good and Bad Had this soundbar for around a week now. The good. it does sound good in certain environments such as Atmos etc, General TV not to bad, music not to bad. The issues I have with it firstly is the google mic not being active on all the inputs so its always listening. This only works on wifi and Bluetooth. Really don't no why LG did this, why would you want to have to switch inputs when you watching tv via Arc for example when you want to use google. I know you can use the button on the remote, but a simple fix from LG to enable the MIC on all inputs would be great. looking at the comments on here other people have mentioned it also, LG haven't done anything about yet so doubt anything will be done, which is a shame. Using an xbox x with Atmos the sound delay is awful using ARC, the only way round this is direct connection to the soundbar. The LG speaker app should let you adjust the front speaker independently, it is only 40w where is the left and right are 50w, it gets a bit drowned out, so needs to be able to be upped on its own. Hopefully LG will listen to my feedback and do something about it, it would turn my rating into a 4/5 star. I think LG need to listen to customer feedback of there products and take quicker action.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Google Assistant with HDMI and optical Cable I was thinking about to buy Google Home Max or a Soundbar like the SL8YG, because I just want Google Assistant with a great sound. Now I bought the SL8Y8 and was mad about, that Google Assistant is online working with WIFI and Bluetooth !?!? I feel realy betrayed about this like many others. I can not say turn on TV like you show it here on the the site with a picture, the last input source is OPTICAL and so Google Assistant is not working, and while watching TV, Google Assitant is also turned off.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stupid feature that nobody wants ruins it Everything about this soundbar is decent and 5 stars, apart from 1 thing, the fact that while you're in any other mode other than wifi (for example when sat watching tv) it disables the google assistant mics... Unfortunately that 1 silly feature defeats one of the main reasons I picked this soundbar, so that it would replace my living room google assistant speakers and they could go somewhere else. instead they have to stay. Yes you can use the button on the remote but if you have to go and get a remote to activate voice control and then ask for something you might as well have picked up a phone instead to do it, defeating the whole point. Please in an update disable this unnecessary feature. My house is filled with 8 LG WK7 speakers so i have been loyal to lg in my google home setup so far this is why this silly little thing annoys me so much :)
