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 4 out of 5 by from Family TV Sound System For the price, it does exactly what it’s supposed to. Works well with all Dolby Atmos content, is perfect for a family TV environment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great friendly service Bought my LG soundbar a few weeks ago after first buying another soundbar. Staff were exceptionally friendly and happily accepted the soundbar back and gave advice on soundbar which would suit my needs. Happy with my LG soundbar but mostly appreciated the good service which is so lacking these days. Will be back again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT ALL ROUNDED SYSTEM excellent audio, just need to change functions to suit what you are watching. I find the movie mode works well, audio is clear, words are clear and bass is amazing. Really deep bass

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Jury's Out Sound is disappointing particularly the poor bass response. Although not at the same price point my father's Samsung Q80R is in a different league when it comes to sound quality. Also seems very sensitive to set up with the HDMI Arc connection already tried 2 cables and about to try the third!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sl8yg - good soundbar having Dolby Atmos Bought the soundbar for My 50" LG TV - much the size - soundbar size 106cm fit perfect under 50"LG TV size 113cm !!! Connecting the soundbar to my LG TV was straight forward using the HDMI/ARC. I have added the wireless rear speakers for the surround sound which improves the sound experience a lot. Using the HDMI through connector on the soundbar means I can attach a laptop or a Blueray and play through the soundbar to the TV. The soundbar has various options including bluetooth, WiFi and Google Assistant included - worked well with my Nest Doorbel - got sound notification when ringing. The bass is not so boomy as I would like but is enought for the size of my room. I could listen Dolby Atmos using Netflix - just WAW.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound especially for the money I bought a great lg tv but wanted the sound to match the wonderful screen. I had an existing lg 2.1 soundbar but it didn't do the soundtrack justice. This soundbar really hits the spot especially when the lg rear speakers are added. Everything paired right out of the box especially dolby atmos which works on all the streaming services and my PS5 so not sure what previous reviews are talking about. Sound separation is good especially the centre speaker. Can't say I've noticed the upfiring meridian speakers adding much but still early days. Very happy and so glad I purchased this soundbar. The team at the shop were brilliant as always.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service, great price and a great sound. The sound bar was so simple to set up, connected to my LG tv no problem. The quality of the sound was such an improvement on my old sound bar especially when it played Dolby Atmos which was so good at delivering cinema like experience. So pleased I decided to upgrade to this quality product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy to set up but no wow factor I bought this to go with my recently purchased 49nano TV. My old 2.1 soundbar audio would randomly cut out with the new TV and I begrudged having to buy a new one to fix this but I think I would have upgraded at some point. The audio issue has been sorted with the SL8YG and admittedly the sound it better than the TV speakers but I'm not getting any sound stage. All the sound is coming from from the soundbar and not around me. I've been skipping through Dolby Atmos movies and programmes to test this today but there is no surround sound. I've also found that adjusting independent volume levels for the soundbar has very little or no effect. Am I disappointed? Just a little but an SL9 or higher is out of my budget. I may consider the additional rear speakers at some point

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected. Bought this to replace a YSP 2500. It's never going to beat a full blown atmos system but for the size of my room it is brilliant. Easy to setup and use, although i do have to agree with the bass being soft but still good. Ordered over the phone from the Glasgow store and delivered the next day !! Awesome and why i only ever use Richer Sounds. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set up superb sound I bought this sound bar a few weeks after buying an oled tv. It was the best thing I could have done !!! Tv came alive after the install and the advice given by Jon in the Cardiff store could not have been more accurate!! You were right again and many thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I best soundbar I have ever owned! Before buying the soundbar, I read a LOT of information and reviews about it. I was sure that it would be the perfect addition to my home cinema, but due to its high cost, I needed to experience it for myself. I was fortunate to have listened to the soundbar with its subwoofer in-store. From a variety of music genres to movie trailers, the immersive audio was impressive. When played in my living room, the overall performance of both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X allows my 4K movies to come to life! I have found that the 'Movie' mode works perfectly in my environment; the sound is truly breathtaking. My husband (who has hearing difficulties) is particularly pleased with this unit's superb vocal clarity. I have read where some have questioned the sound quality of this device. When it was set to our personal preference, it delivered the goods! If you are looking to add a level of awesomeness to your home cinema, look no further. This soundbar is certainly great value for money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from enhances tv experience. good sound bar, but sound levels differ depending on what iam watching. for example if i watch terrestrial tv or virgin media the volume level has to be alot higher than if i stream music from my phone or watch tv via an app like prime or netflix. i dont know why this is iam using the sound bar with a new lg qled tv using the recommended connection (arc). the volume ranges from 1-32 but i cant hear anything under 5. The soundbar does enhance the sound output for sure but there was no wow factor, i did expect a little more than i got.

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 Great Sound & easy setup Very easy to setup and great sound. The different sound modes make such a difference. We default to Movie mode for TV and general shows and Bass Mode for Music. Very nice to have it come on when TV is switched on or if we try to connect via bleutooth etc. Connecting via Wifi or bluetooth is si simple and my kids are constantly using this rather than their own portable speakers. i will be getting the rear wireless speakers (SPK8) at some point to complete the setup.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound - easy to set up. I bought this product two weeks ago - I think the sound quality is excellent; but I do think more ‘pre-set’ options would help. And whilst the wireless sub-woofer is a little on the larg side its’s well made and produces great output.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Soundbar !!!! Bought this soundbar for my LG OLED TV. Excellent features and great sound output from the TV. The sub adds additional experience to it. Very pleased with this product and excellent platform, service and delivery from Richer Sounds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound, improvement on TV only Bought this to improve sound for movies and also to help follow TV dialogue. Impressed on both counts although it’s a bit fiddly to change settings from one to the other.

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 Better than expected I bought this with an LG OLED TV and I'm highly pleased with it . It's like being at the cinema without the popcorn crunching. Took me a little while to figure the settings out but it came good in the end. Good kit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Atmos, clear dialogue. Had this for a coule of weeks. The sound is good, especially Dolby Atmos. Dialogue is crisp on all modes. Took a while to find a setting to my liking, to get a more immersive sound stage. (Movie mode for everything, SW + overhead speakers set higher than centre channels). SW could have more ummph. One minor point, it's not until you read the manual, that you find that your HDMI cable needs to be quite specific (High Speed that MUST support ethernet). Overall reasonably pleased with the product. As usual, superb support from the Richer Sounds teams (telephone sales and Customer Support).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound I chose this for the reviews and the excellent deal RS offered, I couldn’t have made a better choice, it outperforms the LG DPL surround system it’s has replaced

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SL8YG Sound Bar I bought the LG SL8YG sound bar two weeks ago and have not been disappointed since its purchase. The sound bar works great with the LG tv I have through the ARC HDMI port for single source remote volume control and with an Apple TV 4k output straight in to the sound bar HDMI in socket. Sound bar recognised dolby atmos when output from the Apple TV 4K and filled the room with great sound effects and a solid bass from the sub woofer. All round a great item.
Date published: 2020-11-27
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.
