Sound all around, with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X
Using upward-firing speakers, the SL8YG creates a more immersive sound - just like at the cinema. The SL8YG bounces sound off the ceiling meaning that effects such as heavy rainfall and aircraft flying overhead sound more real than ever. Both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X formats are covered, giving you three-dimensional sound with all compatible discs and streaming services.
Sound sensation - featuring Meridian technology
Responsible for some of the finest home and car hi-fi, Meridian is at the cutting edge of digital audio. With their technology on board, the SL8YG's digital processing is greatly enhanced, giving you a huge step-up in sound quality. Meridian technology means total precision, with incredible detail and sound effects placed all around your room.
Feel the bass, with a dedicated subwoofer
The SL8YG isn't just about sound immersion, it's about power, too. The separate subwoofer gives action movies and music serious muscle. The wireless connection means that it can be placed anywhere in the room, regardless of how close it is to the soundbar (mains power required).
Take it to the next level with optional rear speakers
For even greater sonic thrills, optional wireless speakers are available (model number SPK8-S kit). These sync with the soundbar to give you the true sensation of cinema sound. The wireless speakers use a dedicated receiver, meaning there's no need for wires running from the front to the back of your room.
Hi-Res Audio playback for sparking music
At the heart of the LG is a top quality audio system that's compatible with many Hi-Res music files. Hi-Res sound gives greater detail and a more natural sound. The SL8YG is compatible with a range of HD audio formats, up to 24bit/96kHz.
Smart voice control - with Google Assistant built-in
Voice control has got much smarter with this LG soundbar. To get started simply say, “Hey Google” for easy access to a wide range of voice-controlled searches. Google Assistant integrates with services such as Google Photos and Google Maps to make your soundbar an even greater source of entertainment.
The SL8YG also comes with Google's Chromecast built-in. Working in conjunction with streaming services such as Spotify, Google Play and Deezer; this lets you hook up with your favourite music from your smartphone or tablet. With TuneIn, you also get access to a massive range of Internet radio and podcasts - all easily accessible.
