About the LG SL9YG
Upgrade your TV sound
Upgrade your TV sound
There are more options for achieving three-dimensional sound at home than ever before. The SL9YG from LG 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 one sound bar/sub 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 enough to pair nicely with TVs 55" and larger, and it's deep enough to include side-firing drivers for surround effects and a pair of up-firing drivers to add height to the soundfield. 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.
“Hey Google, set a timer for 10 minutes”
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 SL9YG 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 SL9YG 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 SL9YG's support for high-resolution audio files up to 24-bit/192kHz. Plus, its high-fidelity digital-to-analog converter can upsample your lower-res music files to pull out every musical detail.
