Enhanced style, functionality and sound – with an LG TV
Pairing the LG SP8YA soundbar with a compatible LG TV offers three advantages. You get harmonious style, single remote control (using the TV’s remote) and access to the TV Sound Mode Share function. This lets the soundbar take advantage of the Alpha 9 processor (fitted to many 2021 LG TVs), to give a clearer, more consistent sound.
Dolby Atmos and DTS:X for elevated sound
With its upward-firing speakers, the SP8YA creates a more immersive sound – just like at the cinema. The SP8YA reflects 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.
Meridian technology for serious sound
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 SP8YA’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 SP8YA 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.
AI Sound Pro for the perfect sound – whatever the situation
AI Sound Pro gives you the ideal sound balance - whatever you're listening to. LG's unique technology analyses the signal and adjusts the balance to suit. If it senses high vocal levels, for example, then it automatically lowers the bass, making speech programmes, such as the news or commentary, much clearer and more detailed.
Sound Mode for tailored audio
Featuring a suite of unique sound modes, the SP8YA delivers the perfect sound for any occasion. Choose between Game, Sport and Cinema modes for the ideal match. Having trouble hearing the dialogue? Then switch to Clear Voice for crisper, cleaner speech. Bass Blast gives adds weight to whatever you watch or listen to. Dedicated Dolby Atmos and DTS:X modes optimise the immersive sound from these cinematic formats.
Use your choice of Smart – Alexa, Chromecast, AirPlay and OK Google
Whether you use Apple, Google or Alexa systems, you can enjoy seamless integration. With support for Apple AirPlay 2, you can enjoy wireless control within your Apple network. Android support is provided by OK Google and Chromecast. The SP8YA also Works with Alexa – just link to your existing Alexa device for voice control.
The SP8YA 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.
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 SP8YA is compatible with a range of HD audio formats, up to 24bit/96kHz.

Rated 5 out of 5 by l0rrieyw from What a difference! Sounds amazing, like being in a cinema. I paired up with some extra rear speakers for a full surround sound experience and I don't think I have even covered all of the functionality yet, still playing around with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by StuartX11 from Good sound bar. I also bought a sound bar to suit my new LG TV. I think it sounds great and is, fo my ears at least, really nice sounding when used to stream music. It’s easy to set up and has a phone app which allows selection of a variety of sound options and spatial options. It came at a special price when purchasing an LG TV and I consider it to be particularly good for the amount paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AJ28 from Performs as advertised Great soundbar and super easy to set up. Use the remote to get the sound you want to match your viewing e.g. ‘clear voice’, ‘cinema’, ‘music’, ‘sport’. Subwoofer great. The visual display on the front of the soundbar could be larger and thus easier to see from distance but that’s nit-picking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by john130648 from Great sound. Easy set -up Ordered at the same time as my TV it’s taken over a month to arrive. However, it’s been worth the wait. Great bass sound gives it a rich resonances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rossaroo from New TV and sound bar Bought a new sound bar for living room. Great guidance with what to buy. Then a week later the TV decided to give up the ghost.. back a week later and once again great help. Next time I need anything I won't hesitate to pop to the shop for great friendly advice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from LG SP8YA Soundbar Just had the sound bar for a few days, it was easy to set up and connect to my LG TV. Watched a mobie clip before I set it up and then again afterwards, there was a big difference. As got a great deal as there was a £200 discount as I brought an LG TV at the same time, great deal Richer Sounds.
