About the LG SN8YG

Heightened TV sound

If you want to create three-dimensional movie-like sound at home without placing speakers all around your room, this sound bar/subwoofer combo from LG is a great streamlined option. In addition to being well-priced, the SN8YG supports both cutting-edge "object-based" surround sound formats: Atmos and DTS:X. It even calibrates the sound settings based on your unique room and the content you're watching, so you can hear quiet dialogue and dramatic action with equal precision.

Heightened TV sound

If you want to create three-dimensional movie-like sound at home without placing speakers all around your room, this sound bar/subwoofer combo from LG is a great streamlined option. In addition to being well-priced, the SN8YG supports both cutting-edge "object-based" surround sound formats: Atmos and DTS:X. It even calibrates the sound settings based on your unique room and the content you're watching, so you can hear quiet dialogue and dramatic action with equal precision.

At just 2-1/4 inches tall, this bar should fit easily under most TVs. But it's still 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 included subwoofer is wireless so you can place it in the most convenient spot (as long as it has access to AC power).

Modern connections

The SN8YG has 4K video passthrough with support for Dolby Vision™ and HDR10, so you can get rich sound and picture quality with simple HDMI connections — one from your 4K video source to your sound bar and then one from your sound bar to your TV. It also supports eARC (enhanced Audio Return Channel), so it can receive uncompromised audio signals — like Dolby Atmos — from an eARC-equipped TV. 

Meridian and LG SN8YG

“Hey Google, how hot will it be today?”

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 SN8YG has Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth®, and Chromecast built-in, so you can wirelessly stream your favorite audio content right from your mobile device instead.

High-performance audio

LG collaborated with renowned hi-fi pioneers Meridian Audio to equip the SN8YG 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.
