The Sound Bar for the Serious Watcher

Enjoy the breakthrough sound of Dolby Atmos®. With this high-performing sound bar the action transports you inside the experience to complete your home theater.


High Resolution Audio

Digital music for audiophiles, with higher sampling rates and bit depth, both of which can contribute to more accurate, more enjoyable music listening. This certified Hi-Resolution Audio sound bar can play back lossless stereo audio at up to 24-bit/96kHz quality.


Dolby Atmos®

Discover a more immersive home theatre experience in any room. Unlike traditional Dolby Atmos® sound bars, which direct overhead effects upward to be reflected off the ceiling, the SK8Y realistically virtualizes these height channels to add thrilling surround sound to select movies and TV shows.


Chromecast Compatible

Google Chromecast works seamlessly with popular music apps like Pandora® and Google Play Music, enabling wireless audio from a compatible phone or tablet, iPhone®, iPad®, Mac® or Windows® laptop or Chromebook . Simply open a Cast-enabled app and touch the Cast button to get started.


Works with Google Assistant

You can play music, skip tracks, and adjust the volume on your Sound Bar with your voice. You just need another device with Google Assistant built-in - like the LG ThinQ® Speaker.


Wireless Surround Ready

This upgradeable sound bar has been designed to integrate with the SPK8-S optional wireless surround speakers (kit sold separately), adding the premium home theater audio of dedicated rear channels, with wireless convenience.


Adaptive Sound Control

Action movies, dramas, sports, music and even the nightly news all have different audio profiles, so don't listen to them all the same way: Adaptive Sound Control identifies what's playing and automatically adjusts the sound mode to create the ideal audio experience.


TV Remote Compatibility

TV Remote Compatibility
Reduce remote control clutter by using the TV remote to operate the LG sound bar. Eight brands* of television remote are currently supported, enabling volume adjustment on the sound bar as easily as on the TV.

Why NSI Protection Plus?

Our service plan is an economical way to extend the terms of your product's manufacturer parts & labor warranty.

Most manufacturer's limited warranties leave customers with no protection against the rising cost of repairs.

Even the best products can malfunction and the most minor repairs can cost hundreds.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

This soundbar occasionally stops sound for a sec

lho56 5/11/2019

LG is fully aware of the glitch with this soundbar. They also dont offer an app for adjustments and updates. I gave it 4 stars bc the quality is mindblowing. Unfortunately even with my TV off the SK8Y flips back to optical output when listening to music.I can either use my TV bluetooth or unplug the opticle connection?

Good Soundbar for integration with LG Smart TV

FacelessMan 4/15/2019

I recently purchased an LG 70 Inch UHD TV and had a 6 year old Sony 2.1 300w Soundbar with Subwoofer connected via optical input. One of my goals when purchasing the new TV was to minimize the amount of remotes we would need to use. I started searching online for LG Soundbars compatible with my new TV. I wanted a bit more clarity as my old soundbar has an amazing Subwoofer output but was lacking in mids and highs at the soundbar speakers. Seeing that LG is now coming out with new models for their Soundbars I found price drops on the last version out. After reading reviews on the SK8 and seeing the price drop to about 40 under retail I decided to take a chance. The setup was ridiculously easy. As soon as you connect power cables from components to outlets the Soundbar syncs with the Subwoofer. I purchased a 4K ARC HDMI cable to connect to my ARC Input at the TV for this Soundbar. On the TV you must manually move the sound output from Internal to ARC or Optical. You can also set up your remote to control volume and power the soundbar on and off with the TV. There are a couple of videos online that can show you the set up process. The volume output I experienced without changing settings when I installed the Soundbar made me regret my decision. My old Sony had a much louder Bass sound and offered higher overall sound volume in comparison. As I read through the manual and played with the menu options there are settings for Bass Treble Mid and surround as well as environment setting Standard Cinema Game etc.. I moved all of the settings to their highest number with the exception of Treble moved to around 90. I also switched from Standard to Cinema. Once I made those changes the Soundbar offered far better clarity for the mids and highs and slightly lower bass out of the sub which is what I wanted as the old sub rattled the wall. In comparison to my old soundbar this SK8 offers a far better sound experience as nothing is muffled and If I set the volume to the highest the bass is loud enough but doesnt drown out the mid and high. I have not used Atmos as of yet. Overall this is a great soundbar to buy if obtained below retail and if you plan on using the LG Magic Remote and would like to move to one remote to function everything. WiFi and Bluetooth work seamlessly for external devices but the ARC/HDMI output is the way to go if connecting to a newer compatible TV.

Good soundbar

Paul D 1 4/3/2019

This is a good soundbar. I say and not great. It doesnt have Dolby Vision passthrough or not even HDR passthrough. But if you a HDR and Dolby Vision TV there is way around this issue. Use both HDMI ports on your 4k blu-player

Fantastic Sound Bar

Ron65 2/12/2019

Bought the SK8Y Sound bar back when it was on sale . At first I was very frustrated with making it work cause of the bass sound not connecting with the bar itself . I used all the wires including the Optical wire that came with it . I worked with it for a couple days and got no where and started to take it back but I decided to try a HDMI connection instead of the Optical wire . And BestBuy sales person told me to be sure use the ARCH connection . Finally It connected right and the bass blew me away Put on the movie Transformers and it was everything I was hoping for in sound Bass was terrific sound bar itself was great Im glad it started working before I took it back Later on ill add the wireless back speakers for my complete surround sound system

Solid Sound Bar

Grobrooks 8/14/2018

The sound is great and the subwoofer is enough for my listening environment for now. I wanted to go all out for my main living area but the new offspring proved otherwise with his ability to pull lamps off tables by the cord. After having this for a few months I thought I had exactly what I wanted until I bought my brother in law a soundbar with Virtual DTS-X. I was shock at the spacial feel of DTS-X and feel as though the SK6Y may have been a better option. I thought I read where Virtual DTS-X was able to be a Firmware update on other brands sound bars with DTS decoding I know Im only hoping but maybe just maybe LG could look into that? Otherwise its a great sound bar and does exactly what it is advertised to do. I am adding the rear speakers soon and this might just add the oomph Im missing to give it 5 Stars.
