What customers say about "Key Specs"
  • I watched Game of Thrones which has an Atmos playback option. Oh man, the voices and the rumble of the Battle against the white walkers was insane, every clink, and sounds of swords.
  • All in all its great spacial sound, however, I feel like a lot people just expect it to work.
  • I can now keep the volume on the sound bar around 14. It delivers great audio no matter what the source and works great with my LG OLED TV.
  • The top and side fireing speakers add a lot of height and depth to the sound and also help to widen the soundstage.
  • GREAT for movies. Lots of depth, speakers are able to handle a lot at once so you can hear people talking and the soundtrack at the same time.
LG SK10Y 5.1.2 Channel Hi-Res Audio Soundbar with Meridian Technology
  • These LG sk10y have a fantastic sound and really immersive for a sound bar.
  • Been after this for a while, and what a great soundbar, bring everything onto a different level.
  • The sub-woofer is fantastic and their power is more than enough.
  • I grab a 4K Blu-ray of Oblivion and pop it in. The soundbar quickly displays that it is now in Dolby Atmos mode. As the movie progressed I was just blown away that a soundbar can sound so good.
  • I'm hearing sounds that I never heard before on movies n ps4 games

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
  • Speaker bar placed on the front of a tall sofa table which is under my wall mounted new UHD LG 55 in TV. It's exactly the same width as the TV. Great aesthetics!
  • The Sound Bar by itself was quality and the sound has exceeded expectations.
  • Works perfectly, looks great, solid. As Dolby Atmos becomes more available it will only get better!
  • The quality of the item is excellent.It helped that we were able to hear different soundbar and to get advice before purchasing.
  • No wires beautiful sound and a Quality feel.
LG SK10Y 5.1.2 Channel Hi-Res Audio Soundbar with Meridian Technology
  • Quite a nice looking soundbar, slim and streamlined.
  • I opted to not wall mount the SK10Y since I have a shelf under my 65” tv. The combination looks sweet since it’s exactly the same length of my tv. Impressive looking.
  • I have it say I like the rounded edges on the bar, it’s slightly different than others I see at the store and I just think it looks sleek. Like you expect it to be awesome based on how it looks, if that makes any sense.
  • It is large, attractive and appears to be very high quality.
  • The sound bar is 57" long and fits perfectly below the C7P. I added a 12" shelf under the TV that allowed the Atmos top firing speakers to hit the ceiling.

What customers say about "Features"
  • I wish I could invite you all over to check out this set up but 5.1.2 sounds fantastic
  • I bought this sound bar because it has twin up shoot speakers for overhead effects which is used by Atmos. After the Atmos is set up correctly you will love the sound output.
  • I hooked this up with a LG TV with Dolby Atmos and the sound is terrific, especially with a show or movies on Amazon Prime that are recorded in 5.1 sound, WOW, it's like being at a theater.
  • Google Cast built it, I have a whole home audio set up with Google Cast, this made an excellent addition
  • So clear and precise sound using mostly DD 5.1 source (direct tv box and LG ef9500 oled apps).
LG SK10Y 5.1.2 Channel Hi-Res Audio Soundbar with Meridian Technology
  • I have mostly tested with the normal 5.1 sound, the tests with dolby atmos was with a few tv shows from netflix that support it.
  • You can also set the sound effect including standard, movie, music, ASC, and bass blast. The SK10Y is a wifi speaker so I continued setup by downloading the LG Wifi Speaker app.
  • I tested with a few dolby digital plus samples and the sound is amazing, it seems that the sound is coming from everywhere in the room.
  • You can also cast sound from mobile devices to it and use Google Assistant through your phone with Google Assistant for voice commands to the soundbar.
  • This LG also supports Chromecast for Android users. Also supported is Google Home control. I simply connected by using the Google Home app and selected add device.
