    Sounds great connect to Sony 75” X85J Easy install and here all the surrounding sounds without the rear speakers. Do not have all the wires like the 5.1 channels. This will take it place.

    Seems like Pre-release software. Not all features

    |
    Posted .

    No firmware update available. Some features are not working such as volume control using cec, power control via cec, etc. System is too new and I would recommend waiting until the new firmware is posted and all the problems fixed. Sound seems okay, but for a 3.1.2 system it really send to be lacking compared to the Vizio m51-h6 I recently had. That system has been recalled it seems like. I will give this system a week to start working correctly or it will likely be returned. For $800 I expected seamless and effortless connection to my LG CX TV

    Making the leap from receiver to soundbar

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for 1 week when reviewed.

    After 13 years with my beloved Pioneer Kuro 5010 plasma TV, I finally moved into the 4K world with the recent purchase of an LG GX 77" TV (which I've been very happy with so far). Because my old receiver would not support 4K or any of the new sound standards, I decided to upgrade my receiver as well. After purchasing a fairly high-end unit (NAD), I was still finding small issues with things not working the way they should. I then came to a realization that I wanted to drastically simplify my setup. I don't want my home audio to be my second hobby. After doing quite a bit of research, I decided to give soundbars a shot. I landed on this soundbar due to it's favorable reviews (being the same brand as my TV actually had very little to do with it) and strangely enough, width (the stand it sits on is a touch under 48", limiting my choices). I also added the optional rear speakers which BB thankfully discounted when purchased together. This was another limiting factor to my decision as I wanted to make use of my existing ceiling speaker wire. Most of the more expensive units need the rear speakers plugged in and I just don't have a good space to put speakers behind our couch to do that. This is usually because those rear speakers also have up-firing Atmos speakers. Setup was simple and I had zero issues with the wireless subwoofer & wireless receiver for the rear speakers pairing to the bar. With my existing floor speakers and large center speaker still in place, I powered on the soundbar and started playing music. I was truly and quite literally shocked at the sound quality! For a second, I actually thought I still had my old speakers on and had accidentally played to them instead. I had no idea something so small could deliver such a great and powerful sound. The sub is also very impressive (echoing the reviews I read). The soundbar itself also looks very sleek and modern. I wanted something that I could airplay my music to without turning on the TV and it works great (something that the $$$ receiver couldn't do). Movies also sound as good or better than the receiver I had purchased. I've also accomplished my goal of a simple and sleek setup. No more receiver, floor speakers, giant center channel speaker, blu-ray player, and Harmony universal remote. Now we exclusively use the remote that comes with the new Apple 4K TV (where we watch a majority of our content). We keep the TV remote around in the rare cases we want to watch live sports with the HD antenna. To summarize, I am 100% satisfied with this soundbar (and the optional rear speakers which I recommend you pick up). I believe the next model up simply adds 2 side speakers to the bar which adds to the length (too long for our stand) and an extra $200. Otherwise, they are identical. You'll have to decide if those two extra speakers are worth $100 each. As far as negatives, I originally couldn't figure out how to rename the device in my AirPlay list as the steps listed in the online manual do longer seem applicable (this is probably due to changes on Apple's side). I resolved this my installing the Apple HomeKit app on my phone. After adding the bar, I was able to rename it through that app. Speaking of apps, the updated app for this soundbar is also great. Very simple interface and a vast improvement over the previous version. I've played with the various sound modes and I think they really do improve your experience depending on what you are listening to (although the default Sound AI mode also works great if you'd rather not change settings all the time). I hope that LG eventually releases an iOS widget for the app so that I can quickly switch b/w the various sound modes. For now, I've just created a Shortcut to the app as a widget instead. For those in a similar mindset of wanting to simplify your home theater setup, I highly recommend giving this soundbar a try. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a room full of old AV equipment I need to sell :-)

    great sound.. works very well.

    Owned for 1 week when reviewed.

    -- I haven't had a sound bar before and I paired this with the LG C1 via HDMI ARC. Everything connected extremely easily, I was wondering how the subwoofer was going to connect and upon reading instructions it had already done it on it's own. (simple Bluetooth... and it works well). -- It is surprisingly loud (and clear, to my ears..)..haha... I haven't gone above 28... and generally need to keep it under 20 especially when noise levels reduce outside (I live on a busy road but it quiets down at night..). -- I've been pleased that it 'just works'... and the only thing that's a bit confusing is how to turn the display off completely. I googled it and it seems like there must be a way, but I'm a big fan of not seeing anything on the display unless I adjust it, and... this displays something all the time.. (very, very minor and it's not super super bright, so ...this is really knit-picking(?) : ) -- I read reviews about the "5.1.2" big brother/sister SP9YA but this came with a very good deal as a bundle and ..I'm happy with this. It's tempting to go for 5.1.2, but... going up from TV-only sound to a rockin' soundbar, I'm very happy with this. -- I *will* be getting the wireless speakers (from LG) and they look like a pretty good deal overall. ...I'd recommend this. Especially as a bundle deal with a TV. ...I rated quality excellent because it does what it's supposed to... it's pretty much all plastic but... it is what it is.

    Distracting Status Display. Decent Soundbar

    |
    Posted .

    I probably wouldn't have purchased this soundbar had I known the Status Display cannot be turned off. This is really distracting when I am enjoying a movie in a dark room. The soundbar is connected to a C1 OLED TV and is constantly displaying "E-ARC". Even my much cheaper Vizio soundbar automatically turns its indicator off after a few seconds. LG please release a future firmware to completely turn off Status Display! Sound quality is quite decent for the price. Dialog can be easily heard and overall sound is clear. I don't like to mess with sound modes as they tend to sound artificial and lose some details in some way. I just leave the sound mode in the default "Standard". We also cannot change sound mode when Dolby Atmos is active. Bass is strong (and boomy) so I have to dial the sub down by -3 to -6 depending on what I am listening. Bluetooth pairing is very simple in my case. Within seconds my phone is paired with the soundbar and I can start streaming music to it. Music quality is quite good and I hear a lot of details. Wifi setup is also very easy. I downloaded LG Soundbar App and it has no problem discovering the soundbar. The app can completely replace the remote if you prefer controlling everything via the app. The app can also handle "AI Room Calibration" which I haven't tried. Overall this is a decent soundbar at this price point.

    Game changer

    Posted .
    Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.

    I had purchased this product open box and unfortunately, it didn't come with a replacement box but my local store was more than willing to help give a discount as it was labelled "excellent" condition. I 100% cannot recommend this soundbar enough at the discounted price. I cannot believe the sound quality I've been missing out on watching tv and listening to music on my TV alone. It paired very easily with my LG CX using the LG soundbar app on my phone and it's interface is so minimal and clean, that you don't really need to use your soundbar remote to control it. But because my TV is also LG, they work seamlessly together. I connected it via eARC and I can't imagine going back to not having a soundbar. If you're on the fence about it, look to see if you can save $ on an open-box deal because you won't regret it. The crisp audio in shows like game of thrones to the booming bass while playing dubstep is an absolute game changer!

    A perfect budget sound bar for LG C1 OLED and PS5.

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.

    I was comparing the SP8YA and SP9YA to see if it's worth it to pay the extra $200 for the SP9YA. But according to Rtings, SP9YA gives poor surround sound performance but has around same ratings as the SP8YA so it's not worth it in my opinion. For that price point, you should consider the Samsung HW-Q850A instead. I planned to buy this and pair it with 2 LG Rear Channel Speakers. This is an Open Box - Satisfactory condition item btw. Upon receiving the item, the outside box was heavily damaged. The sound bar and the sub-woofer were thoroughly wrapped with cushions. They show no scratch or cosmetic damages at all. Included a remote and 2 power cables. No manuals or optical cable (not needed anyways). Setup was easy. The remote layout is simple. Bass performance is amazing, at least sounds way better than the Sony HT-S350 that I previously had. You can check the review on rtings.com for more info. It's highly recommended to install LG Sound Bar app on your smartphone so that you can adjust the settings. I don't know why but somehow I cannot change the sound mode on the remote. I must use the LG C1 remote to go to sound settings on TV in order to change the mode. Other than that, everything has been amazing. Overall, the quality is good. I saved a bunch of money thanks to the open box.

    When I entered the store, a helpful ermployee asked how he could help. I said I was looking for a sound system for a TV, and he said "then you want to talk with Zack" and he pointed to him. Zack spent a long time with me, patiently explaining the pros and cons of several different systems, and seemed very knowledgeable and honest, etc. mostly just giving me facts. I finally ending up getting one that I am very happy with. Thanks Zack!

    Great Sound WithClear Speech

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.

    Relatively simple to set up. Make sure you read the pages that detail what each item on the remote controls. Most buttons have multiple choice sub-settings. Also be aware that the sound bar requires two (2) HMDI cables. For the best results make sure one of the cables is high speed rated and connected to the HDMI/ARC port on your TV. The subwoofer was easy to set up…just push the button on the back of it and it will automatically connect via Bluetooth to the sound bar…just check the button on the back of the subwoofer is glowing solid green. The best part of the sound bar/subwoofer is the clarity of speech settings. Too many TV shows have dialogue buried behind a too-loud music bed, making understanding speech difficult. I am in my mid 70’s and I found the sound bar to provide clear speech at a much lower volume settings, proving that it works as specified. Finally, a great sales price makes the purchase a no-brainer, even though it is more expensive than most sound bars.

    I love this soundbar!! I have had it a couple months I purchased the two satellite speakers the sp8k’s and I’ve not only used it a lot through Bluetooth but I have watched a lot of movies. I upgraded from a 2.1 LG soundbar purchased years ago because the sub stopped pairing. So far I love the upward firing speakers of the soundbar it truly adds to the 3d affect when watching movies and the sub is not only perfect but allows customization to bass level. The audio levels are just right and there are multiple presets to help adjust to what ever you are watching

    For the money it blows the competition away. I was fortunate to pick this up open box and it’s the greatest sound bar for a decent sized room. Takes a while to perfect (for ideal calibration) since the AI does a pretty good job but that’s with any sound system. Highly recommend if you want to have clear deep tones and highs as well as an abundance of options for preferences! Tons of sound modes that truly make it amazing. Would be a 5 star rating if the blasted ARC/HDMI front LED lights would turn off (see photo) unfortunately there’s way to do so, it would be perfect if it was possible.

    The LG SP8YA soundbar brings an added sound dimension to my LG 55C OLED TV. The added sound is not obtrusive, but when needed, it comes to the fore with a strong bass and unstrained additional volume that fills our rather large living room space. The sound bar offers a great deal of control over the different speakers and a number of ways for distributing the signal. The amount of wiring and installation fuss is at a minimum.

    Liked the soundbar better than the Samsung but it cost more as it was a grade above the Samsung. It really sounds great with the added rear speaker subwoofer for surround sound. But you have to purchase that separately. It was on sake for 120 so it was not much , but added the rear speakers and subwoofer. Now it sounds great!!

    It might be expensive if compare to some Vizio's soundbar, but if you have LG TV. I would recommend it because when it pair with their own brand system. Everything is easy. Nothing complicated. Also really good with Xbox SX which you can use Dolby Atmos with your Netflix or video games.

    Works amazingly simple with my LG C1 and sounds fantastic. The eArc HDMI interface is smooth and seamless. The sound is amazing for what you pay for this (especially if you take advantage of the Black Friday pricing). My friend was so impressed he ditched his Sonos for it.

    No LG Support

    Sound bar is ok for use in my bedroom tv application. Currently I cannot recommend this soundbar because cannot be registered online with LG. The model# does not appear as a selectable item. In fact, it does not appear that any soundbar can be selected to be registered. There does not appear to be a support page for the soundbar either, therefore unable to access the detailed manual. The "Simple Manual" that comes with the soundbar is 20 pages long but only has 2 pages of actual pictorial and instructional information. LG technical support is snail-mailing me the 64 page advance manual for this soundbar. They would neither confirm not deny that there was a problem with their support pages for their soundbars.

    Got it easy hook up. I updated it from my phone. The sound is not bad. Cinema mode the top speakers work nice. Overall very happy, great sound for the price. Sub woofer is heavy, bass heavy. App little tuff getting it to play nice with Android phone.

    I will start off by saying I use to have a 3.1 system with tower speakers, center channel speaker and subwoofer with a receiver. I was tired of all the wires and constant hassle. And this sound bar sounds absolutely fantastic and clean looking. It has awesome bass. You can’t go wrong with this soundbar

    This soundbar bangs! Great controls from the remote or from mobile device with the app. Loads of customization. The AI sound enhancement works a charm. Dolby Atmos experience is pretty unreal. Full and rich sound quality. Definitely worth it. Paired with my LG tv. Turns on and off with the TV.
