About the LG SL8YG
Elevate your TV sound
Elevate your TV sound
There are an increasing number of options for achieving three-dimensional sound at home, and most of them cost a lot more than this sound bar/subwoofer combo from LG. Plus the SL8YG supports both Atmos and DTS:X, so it's a good choice if you don't want to limit yourself to just one of these cutting-edge "object-based" surround sound formats. And it packs big, multi-speaker sound into a streamlined package, so you don't need to place a bunch of speakers around your room.
At just 2-1/4 inches tall, this bar should fit easily under most TVs. But it's wide and deep enough to include dedicated left-, center-, and right-channel speakers, along with a pair of up-firing drivers to add those immersive height effects. The remote even gives you volume control over each channel so you can dial in the sound that's right for you.
The included subwoofer is wireless so you can place it in the most convenient spot (as long as it has access to AC power). And if you want to crank that sub, the remote has you covered with independent bass level adjustment.
“OK Google, how's my commute?”
Sure — you can ask the bar's built-in Google Assistant to play your favorite Spotify® playlist or shuffle all your Pandora® stations, but it can also help you with more than music. Plan your day with weather and traffic updates. Create a shopping list, set reminders or alarms, and control connected smart home devices like lights and thermostats — all with your voice.
Not into voice control? Not a problem.
The SL8YG has Bluetooth® and Chromecast built-in, so you can wirelessly stream your favorite audio content right from your mobile device instead.
LG collaborated with renowned hi-fi pioneers Meridian Audio to equip the SL8YG with some innovative audio enhancements. They combined advanced signal processing and hardware design to expand image height and widen the soundfield so you get much richer, fuller sound than you might have thought possible from a sound bar.
Music lovers will appreciate the SL8YG's USB input and support for high-resolution audio files up to 24-bit/192kHz.
