The LG SL8YG soundbar is a 2.1 movie audio powerhouse that also delivers strong music performance and Google Assistant voice support.

Powerful audio with adjustable EQ and listening modes. Wireless subwoofer. Hands-free Google Assistant.

LG SL8YG 3.1.2 Atmos Soundbar Review


LG's 3.1.2 soundbar offers a solid, relatively affordable option for those seeking a dose of immersion minus the heavy hardware investment.

Very good sound & configuration options via app.

LG. Life's not bad!


I bought the LG to replace a Polk Magnifi SR 5.1 which developed a non repairable fault. Richer Sounds were good at refunding money. I found the LG slightly tricky to set up because the Google Home app wouldn't update the software on the LG at the...
