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.

Movie theater sound

Rchan 8/7/2019

I have had this system for a few months now. It is great The sound is amazing It sounds the same as other expensive surround systems. The 2 upfacing speakers work just like side and rear surround speakers. The bass is full. I am one who likes to feel movies. It is crazy the sound that comes from a sound bar. I was never a fan of sound bars before hearing this for the first time. It sounded good at Bestbuy but sounds much better in a smaller space such as a living or media room. Highly recommend.

Great but with a Fatal Flaw

LG Sad 7/25/2019

After waiting until 2019 when the new model would be released and ensuring that all I read about the center volume/dialogue issues from LG and the online experts about the issue being resolved with updates etc. I made this purchase in late March 2019. To FINALLY get the full effect of the Dolby Atmos Surround we added an LG 65C8. After watching three 4K/UHD/Atmos pieces including Pacific Rim from Vudu last night it became clear that the dialogue volume is still an issue and from what I am reading and from contacting customer support twice today with misinformation given in the first session and mysteriously losing the connection in the 2nd when the representative told me that LG had done all it can do with this expensive paperweight as far as dialogue goes I am now believing that my best option at this point is having LG take this back and give me a refund. I love it otherwise but I cant be satisfied with the potential of this system not being realized. . ..

Sound Bar

Spider45 7/16/2019

During the July 4th weekend I purchased my LG sound bar Model SK1 to hookup to a flat screen I had recently purchased. Until then I was relying on the speakers from the TV. The addition of the sound bar is a vast improvement in sound quality. The one addition I would have requested was more detailed usage instructions. Hookup was a breeze and usage and sound quality is great.

Sub cuts out

MichaelRN 7/1/2019

Ive had this system for just shy of a year and have continuous issues with the sub dropping out. Others relate this to the fact that it connects via Bluetooth to the sound bar. Going to attempt to get it replaced or refunded under warranty since there are so many issues on them.

Easy setup. Decent sound.

MunkeMan 4/12/2019

I purchased this sound bar around a month ago. So far I like it. The setup was very easy and Bluetooth range is great. Sound is not as good as the Klipsch I used prior. I mainly bought this for the ATMOS option as my Klipsch was older. Sound is really good from my 2018 Samsung TV however when streaming music from my iPhone or other it is not as crisp as my Klipsch. Overall I like the sound bar and anticipate keeping it for several years.

After several weeks still very happy with the soundbar and matching rear surround speakers. The added ATMOS effect is very entertaining and it also sounds surprising good sending music to it via Bluetooth. I have an LG TV as well which made integrating it much easier. Happy I bought it.

Huge Soundbar with a poor Center Channel

howardpm 4/8/2019

Picked up this SK10Y soundbar to replace a 2017 SJ8. Sadly I almost feel it was like a downgrade. The soundbar is huge which is fine as it sits on a entertainment center below my previous 60 inch now 65 inch LG TV. The problem is the center channel is horrible. They had a firmware update that allowed you to increase the volume of it independently but it didnt help much at all. Watching a good Sci-Fi movie the talking totally gets drowned out by the rest of the surround noises. I did pick up the rear speakers LG SPK8 which I highly recommend and make a huge difference. Also while I cant validate this but word on the street is only the standard mode actually takes advantage of Meridan Technology. So if you use ASC or Movie you loose the tuning Meridan helped LG with. This soundbar uses a newer app then the 2017 and earlier ones which is much easier to use but Id say 50 of the time it doesnt actually detect the sound bar and I have to close and reopen it about 5 times. Not sure if that is an App issue or a Soundbar issue but its a major annoyance. Id wait to see some reviews on the 2019 models but if your looking for a decent deal on a closeout 2018 model you may want to skip this one.

Amazing Audio

bonilla26 3/19/2019

This is my second LG sound bar but first SK10y model. I hooked this one up to my LG Oled65 television and let me tell you OMG the sound on this is amazing. I love the Dolby Atmos on this it feels like you are in the movie. You have to have this hooked up to the blu-Ray or Apple 4K in order for it to work. The players have to also be Dolby Atmos compatible in order for it to work. Also the show or the movie has to have Dolby Atmos. I got the rear speakers with this and it makes such a big difference. It is a lot of money but well worth it. I love having family and friends coming over and loving the surround on this sound bar.

LeftWilliam 3/8/2019

I bought one retail and used it about 2 weeks. Dialog is quite bad if you have hearing voices youre really not going to want this bar. Bass is lacking in a big way as well. LG you make fabulous flat screens but your audio leaves much to be desired.

Wahid 2/28/2019

My wife and I bought this a couple weeks ago and we have been very pleased and very satisfied with this product. The best feature for me is the bluetooth because I can play music from my laptop or phone and what makes it so great is the standby feature which allows you to connect without having to actually turn it on. So Im in the toilet one morning listening to a radio station and decided that I wanted to hear this music louder so I let my fingers do the talking/walking my wife freaked out cause the music came on and I wasnt around lol.

Chuck 556 2/26/2019

Ive been playing with it for over a month and found out the on line manual doesnt explain all the info needed. I had a blue ray player hooked into one of the HDMI outlets on the sound bar and couldnt access the player. I contacted on line support and was given an answered within 24hours. Now everything is great and Im enjoying great sound.

I bought this about three weeks ago. The sound is excellent. But there are a few issues. The center channel is quiet even when turned up after update in movie mode. Second when system is booted up with tv DVR sk20y it loads hdmi 2 which is connected to 4K player. I tried switching cables around. Then it starts on one. Confusing.

May be not worth the price you pay for...

dharam 1/17/2019

The sound bar is great and with recent software updates all open issues are fixed. However the woofer is extremely week and does not perform well. Having said that it is definitely not worth even with the promotional price. Also there is no DTS-X support. Buying SPK8 speakers are a mandatory requirement to experience ATMOS to a certain level.

Good a few improvements needed

Scuba Dan 1/11/2019

I have had my Soundbar now for 8~ months and enjoy the soundbar but a few things leave me wanting more and looking to see if this should be my forever soundbar for not. I echo the same comments as others I do also struggle with voices even after the last update would be nice to be able to make further improvements in this regards. Secondly I was really hoping by now a LG TV compatible mount would be available my TV is on an adjustable mount but the Soundbar does not move with it. Ill need to revisit again if people have made this work with any of the universal brackets. Thirdly there is seemingly a bug somewhere in the Google Cast feature I use this feature almost daily and once or so a week it gets into a funk. The funk means it wont accept the Cast regardless if I use my phone or laptop chrome all of these devices end up in a loop trying to establish the Cast. I struggle with how to get it out of the funk without turning off the hard power or I need to wait for it to clear itself over some amount of time. The Soundbar clearly is trying to do something it list the input as WIFI but does not get much further.

This soundbar offers terrific quality and ease of use. The Atmos feature is outstanding and the sound seperation with music is great.

Needs Clearer Center Channel even after update

HTXEduardo 12/14/2018

I have to say I desperately want to love this sound bar but even after the most recent update the center channel is weak and voices sound muffled. I have the center channel maxed out at 6 and everything else but treble at 0 or below and and it is still often times hard to distinguish what people are saying in movies and shows. I have to max the volume just to barely hear and make out words in some shows. If LG could just fix the center channel clarity this bar would be near PERFECT everything else about it has been great. If 6 is the max the center channel can do now it needs to be able to go to a 16...its hard to appreciate shows when voices sound like Charlie Brown. Please fix

Perfect for tailgating

Rolling with the Tide 10/7/2018

I bought this last month to pair with my LG Tv I take tailgating. The tv speakers just couldnt put out enough sound by themselves without having the volume in the 90s. This sound bar paired up seamlessly and provides awesome sound in the 20s from our tv.

Great Sound

soby 9/30/2018

Very happy with the purchase. This system produces the wide stage and surround that I was looking for. So clear and precise sound using mostly DD 5.1 source . Sub is very adequate music cranks top speakers are in use for music and movies Atmos is amazing.

Very Good but Not Excellent

Winston C 8/16/2018

Overall its a great soundbar for those that want a Dolby Atmos support without the bulk and complexity of a dedicated receiver and speaker setup. It was a snap to get the SK10Y up and running. It was as simple as connecting the HDMI cable between the ARC ports on the soundbar and TV. The wireless subwoofer paired immediately and required no intervention on my part. HDMI-CEC/Simplink works flawlessly and I can control everything through the LG Magic Remote that came with the B7A. Once hooked up I immediately ran the firmware update to the latest version. This fixed the low voice issue that others have proved feedback on. The LG Wifi Speaker app is functional but the UI is clunky. It takes too many clicks and drilling down into menus to find what I need. LG also needs to take the time to make the app more intuitive. Overall sound quality is very good but seems to lack oomph. Perhaps I need to spend more time tinkering around with the settings but I am surprised my previous SJ8 4.1 soundbar seemed to pack more punch. In particular the bass from the subwoofer is very weak. Im not asking for room shaking vibrations but it should at least beat out the smaller unit on my previous LG soundbar. The need to play around with profiles to get optimal sound is made more difficult by the above mentioned UI issues in the app. Atmos works well for an integrated unit and I am happy with the experience. The WebOS apps are able to send Atmos over Dolby Digital Plus via ARC. TrueHD passthrough from an external media streamer works as advertised. The design of the unit is very nice. As stated in the specs its a big unit that pairs perfectly with LGs 65 televisions. The build is solid and the materials used feel high quality. The rubber feet firmly plant the soundbar on TV consoles for those that choose not to wallmount. It takes significant force beyond casual contact and bumps to move the SK10Y. The subwoofer is a good size and also feels solidly built. It also resists sliding and has enough heft to keep it planted in place. Ergonomically I find the wallmount to be a weak link. A bit of careful thought could have made this unit great but it feels like no one was thinking about providing an excellent customer experience. I understand speaker layout weight and other design considerations affected how soundbars can be wallmounted but it would be nice if LG had a universal mount. I now have several screw holes I need to repair because the mounting bracket on the SK10Y does not align with the bracket on my previous SJ8. It would be nice and a great incentive to continue LG soundbars if I can simply pull out the old unit and slide a newer one in.

Great for music

Wilkinxp 8/15/2018

The sound is loud an clear for music. I inly wish I could say the same for movies. Dialogue gets lost at times due to the center being so low.

Great companion to OLED tv

jovapr_lion 8/14/2018

Excellent sound. Matches perfect with 65 inch OLED. Good at ATMOS effect. Even better when paired with wireless surround speakers. Easy set-up. Only negative is the limit on how loud you can put it.

Didnt do what I needed.

Voice issue even after firmware update

JATr0ut 7/30/2018

As a couple of reviews below pointed out the voice issue has not been fixed with the firmware. LG needs to go back to Dolby and figure out how to differentiate the voice object positioning from other objects. In high action scenes it sounds like youre listening to a background soundtrack. LGs one firmware update away from having one of the best soundbars out there. Until then I probably wont be listening to Atmos content.

Wow a complete miss in audio

Bobaudio 7/28/2018

I bought this to replace my previous soundbar. What a mistake. I love the fact I can pass Dolby Vision and atmos over arc. It does that very well to my lgg7p. It does a decent job of atmos and the center channel level control was fixed to a fair degree . The big negatives are the lack of volume control for the left front right front left rear surround and right rear surround channels separately. The lack of the ability to decode a normal Dolby Digital or dts soundtrack with tHe rears engaged just using the left front center right front left rear right rear and switching back to2.1 when broadcast Its terrabl when the source switches to 2.0 and all speakers blast I am hoping these issues get fixed or I think you have a big miss here and having many regrets for the purchase would have thought better of lg and meridian I hope these issues can be addressed really I hope you check out the forums and professional reviews. Ive had it going on two weeks

Firmware App Update doesnt fix design flaws

YourMainDude 7/27/2018

SOFTWARE VERSION : 18061178 DSP : 18060800 is what LG pushed to address center/vocal channel operation performance. It doesnt fix the core issue. The core issue is with the positioning of the vocal sound components objects and their relative strength to the other high energy or atmosphere objects that are introduced in more dynamic or ambient scenes in the Dolby ATMOS sound field. With this update LG introduced a center channel control that can boost vocals but it also boosts other objects in the near field of object placement. Just check the most dynamic scenes in the recent HD release of Ready Player One. When characters are further back in the visual field of the movie their voices are by ATMOS object oriented design positioned back in the sound field relative to the entire soundscape. The problem is there are obvious over attenuation issues with how this soundbars DSP handles vocal object placement on dialog not in the foreground of the movie. And the newly introduced center channel control doesnt help pull those back positioned dialog objects forward. Both the provided remote control and the mobile app have introduced this center channel control. As a side note what LG failed to recognize is that all functions of the sound field adjustments - most notably the Treble and Bass controls - are still missing in the mobile app. Seriously? But I digress ... This soundbar has the potential to reign supreme if LG can only figure out how to better communicate with Dolby Labs and possibly Meridian - to address the processing of voice objects in the generated sound field. The DSP of this design is still broken. Best Buy Tech Insider YourMainDude

Great quality but at a cost

BrunoC 7/16/2018

Soundbar sounds really good and I love being able to control it via an app as well as being able to play music onto it via its built in Chromecast. Planning on getting the rear speakers soon. As for cons I only see two: the top firing speakers are not centered on the Soundbar like they are on the lower tier version of this product being closer to the front. The second is cost: not sure Id be able to distinguish this and the lower version of this Soundbar which is shorter and cheaper.

Needs a fix for Center channel weakness in movies

Clockmaker1999 7/14/2018

Had this a couple of months and although music sound is excellent thats not what I bought it for. On movies the Center channel dialogue is drowned out by the atmospheric background sounds and music soundtrack components. It is very difficult to make out the dialogue. Extremely disappointing. I knew that this issue existed when I purchased but I trusted LG to fix the problem with a software/firmware fix which has yet to come. Very poor for their flagship sound bar and I cant recommend unless its fixed.

Great sound some issues

brent3687 7/9/2018

I got this a couple weeks ago and hooked it up to my Xbox One X. Atmos compatibility had to be downloaded thru an app kind of weird but it works and it sounds great. Watching blu-rays sounds great but while playing games I noticed some issues. I had some static sound intermittently which was annoying but didnt ruin the experience.

Working good so far

Dpcsaw 7/8/2018

Weak sound

Butch52 7/2/2018

I bought this soundbar because the size and specs and price were what I was looking for. Everything is what I expected other than very weak volume. Tone is good but even in a small room the volume is not sufficient. I may return it.

Good but not great

SEnnis 6/24/2018

I replaced my old 5.1 system with this expecting it to be great fit for my C7 55 inch OLED. To be honest Im a bit underwhelmed while its a good to great sound the levels are off. I need to crank the center speaker Thanks to recent firmware updates to get any sort of clarity out of the vocals. My girlfriend frequently asks me so switch it from the movie experience to bass blast because she cant clearly hear the vocals. Other than that the ports and support for wifi/bt + 4k pass through is great. Just a bit disappointed about the vocal levels.
