LG has packed plenty of features into its SL8YG soundbar and sub combo, which offers convenience for getting Atmos into your living room. For "genuine" surround sound the duo is something of a compromise – unless you add the SPK8-S rear speaker package, that is

    Dolby Atmos & DTS:X, Satisfying bass, Sleek design, Google Assistant integration

    Front-heavy soundstage isn't particularly wide, Fiddly remote control, No rear speakers for full surround

As noted at this year's IFA GPC [see p22], the soundbar market is surging. There's plenty of choice too, from budget models to Dolby Atmos power pushers. LG's SL8YG is one of the latter – a £700 soundbar/sub combi with cinematic immersion on its mind.

This Sound bar is really solid. I added the satellites too. If you can grab it while on sale, go for it. Meridian technology shines, and this one is of reasonable size compared to its larger more expensive siblings.

I bought this in a package deal with LG OLED55B9PLA TV (on back order). Needed new HDMI cable for ARC port to set up as my old one wouldn't cut it. Have linked it with vinyl player and phone via Bluetooth. Tried all settings so far. Watched Expendables boxset this week.

I have not had any problems, sound quality awesome for my ears.(Dolby Atmos) works fine. As long as the content your watching is Dolby Atmos, the system will automatically change just like your TV does with HD to 4K .You also have a LG WiFi speaker app which will let you play with the settings.
