Very Good but Not Excellent

Overall it's 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. I'm 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, it's a big unit that pairs perfectly with LG's 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.

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.

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.

Didn't do what I needed.

I bought the sound bar to clarify the terrible voice over on my new tv. It just didn't do it. I got volume but not clarity.

Voice issue even after firmware update

by: JATr0ut

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 you're listening to a background soundtrack.LG's one firmware update away from having one of the best soundbars out there. Until then, I probably won't be listening to Atmos content.
