Actually very impressed

Jasen39 11/12/2020

My roommate received this lg soundbar and I am totally blown away. This combined with the LG TV in the living room shakes the house I am so excited she got this. When I play my video games it feels like Im actually inside them. I really love the sleek look of the unit too. Its matte black/speaker cover apparel makes for a super fancy addition to your entertainment set. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a true and complete sound experience

Pretty awesome

Lauramcjk 11/7/2020

This is my first sound bar and I have got to say Im very impressed with it I just got a new TV and this was the ultimate match to pair it with. I feel like Im at the movies in my own house Which couldnt have come at a better time with the pandemic going on and everyone here stuck in the house. Firstly it came packaged really nicely all 8ndividually wrapped pieces. It was also super simple to put together and set up. Id say Im really impressed by the AI room calibration. I actually set this up in 2 separate rooms to check it out and it did really seem to have totally different output in each room. Impressive. The quality of sound was superb for movies and TV. It clearly made out words that may otherwise have not been heard. I do think they missed the bus on the music front. The bass should be so much better. I expected it to really make some noise but it really fell short for me in that aspect. I do love the Google assistant and the Bluetooth functionality to play my music thats downloaded already in my phone. All in all I really love this soundboard. Just if they could fix the bass issue. Although I did see that there are rear speakers to attach and they arent included. Those may be my answer. If the bass was there this would be 5 stars.

The LG soundbar doesnt neglect the basics Dolby

TampaCarGirl 11/7/2020

A feature-packed soundbar that doesnt neglect the basics The Dolby Atmos and DTS:X support is great But Im still learning all of the tricks and upgrades of this powerful LG Soundbar which I am currently using with my smart TV Hisense. The 3.1.2-channel LG SN8YG is highly recommended. I received this product at a discounted price for my review.

Great atoms soundbar

HarleyMan30 11/7/2020

This is a great soundbar. Let me make this clear the only way to get atoms is by hdmi E arc to hdmi Arc. Throw the optical cable away its pure junk. You will need 8k hdmi to actually get the pure sound these soundbar can produce. The lg app works great and gives you a few more options versus the controller but if you have lg oled you should be using lg sync anyways. The Bluetooth is newer version of Bluetooth so its very fast to connect but seems to have security flaws. One thing I dont like is this sounbar has some serious flaws as in security compare to my other soundbar. I have had my soundbar tap into twice and cant figure out how they are connecting to my soundbar.

Solid Dolby Atmos Sound Bar that is Simple To Use

IcarasX 10/23/2020

The SN8YG is a 3.1.2 sound bar that supports both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X and also uses Meridian Audio to help fine-tune LGs sound bars with advanced signal processing. The SPK8-S speaker kit expands the SN8YG to a true 5.1.2 system. Setting up the additional speakers was seamless and instant. No issues here. It sports the same exact design and dimensions from last year which is a sleek brushed dark gray metal aluminum finish that perfectly matches LGs 2019-2020 OLED TVs. The SN8YG measures 41.7 long 2.2 tall and 4.7 deep. The metal grill finely wraps around the sides in smoothly rounded edges while discreet touch buttons line horizontally on the top. The remote is also quite simple to use with large buttons. eARC support is new for the SN8YG and allows it to receive lossless content straight from a Dolby Atmos supported TV as well as any other connected devices to that TV. Im happy to say it works perfectly. The SN8YG is also Google Voice and Chromecast compatible. Im not a Google user myself but the LG Wi-Fi Speaker app for iOS or Android is where the SN8YG can be remotely controlled and where firmware updates are downloaded. This requires a Wi-Fi connection although the app seems quite lackluster and poor in quality considering its 1.5 star review for iOS. Sound quality is amazing and detailed with a very convincing sound field. In Blade Runner 2049 the rooftop rain scene where K and Joi are having a moment occasional drops of water falling on metal from above the frame are produced only in the up firing drivers and gives a sense of added height into the scene. As for the low end the subwoofer is impressive and punchy. The Outpost precisely jolts you with every single round being fired from atop the Hum-Vee mounted machine guns. Mortor rounds and RPG explosions sound rich and powerful yet the low end doesnt mask or muddy the mix. Ive always had problems with the center channel in past LG sound bars but its definitely much improved here although the problem is still slightly apparent in older content while newer movies and TV shows are very clear. The most balanced sound field comes from Dolby Atmos content. Castlevania on Netflix is audio nirvana. The dialogue is crisp and untampered with while bone crunches whip snaps magic summons and crumbling rock are discreetly sent to the proper channels. The SN8YG is a solid Dolby Atmos sound bar that is very simple to use. I highly recommend it for home theater sound.

Great Soundbar Upgrade

mhguy 10/21/2020

Excellent product a great replacement for my previous 2.1 soundbar. My favorite feature is the dedicated center channel in this 3.1 soundbar. With the soundbar in movie mode the center channel really brings forward and emphasizes the dialogue which tends to get buried in music and sound effects in so many movies. It did take me a while to figure out the best HDMI cabling configuration...with my cable TV box left connected directly to my TV I had problems with out-of-sync audio and video when watching cable TV content. By moving the cable TV box to the soundbars HDMI input that problem is resolved. I love the Dolby Atmos capability watching Disney+ and Netflix Dolby Vision/Atmos content on my LG OLED TV and listening through the SN8YG soundbar is an audio-visual treat. Watch Guardians of the Galaxy 2 on an OLED with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos The low-profile soundbar fits well with the tabletop-mounted LG TV. Out of the box the soundbar is too bass-heavy which I guess is the norm in the world of soundbars because so many people crave earthshaking vibrations and excessive volume but fortunately there is plenty of level adjustment range available and I could achieve decently balanced equalization. I am also pleased by how much better the CEC integration works compared to my old soundbar with my LG TV...either my TV remote or my cable TV remote will power up or power down my TV the soundbar and the cable TV box all with a single button push. I should note that I use this product strictly as a speaker system for my TV/cable box/DVD player...I dont use and cannot comment on Bluetooth integration with mobile phones Google voice or any of the other features.

Great quality sound

Ebenvzyl 10/2/2020

I received the SN8YG at a discounted price and used it to replace my refurbished SN5YG. The SN5YG and SN8YG are almost identical in horizontal dimensions however the mount brackets are not exactly the same most due to the wider dimensions. The mounting guideline is really useful and it is nearly impossible to make a mistake and avoid to have to make multiple holes in the drywall. As for sound the quality of speaker is exceptional and the old TVs sound specific DTS:X and optic connection to my TV will transform it into a movie theater experiece. The connection to google home is very easy and basically shows up and can just be added to your home sound system. Play classical rock or even more modern music loud and quality is great.

I just wished you could adjust the amount of base with the subwoofer. Bass blast is a little disappointing.

SPK8-S rear speakers bass management flaw

FROGYZQ 4/30/2020

LG soundbar and SPK8-S rear speakers bass management flaw The sound bar not realize bass management to SPK8-S rear channels . Its simple to test it run Dolby Atmos test tones 7.1.2 and for every sound bar channel the subwoofer make some bass the bass management for the rear channels SPK8-S channels sub is mute no bass management. I repeat the test using 7.1 Dolby Surround test tones and the results are the same. This is a MAJOR flaw in LGs sound bars because SPK8-S rear channels has no deep bass at all. Please LG fix this behavior. Sorry for my poor English not my principal language
