High Resolution Audio
Digital music for audiophiles, with higher sampling rates and bit depth, both of which can contribute to more accurate, more enjoyable music listening. This certified Hi-Resolution Audio sound bar can play back lossless stereo audio at up to 24-bit/96kHz quality.
24-bit sound contains more data than lower-quality audio, and is the standard for high-resolution music. This feature converts lower-resolution audio to a high-resolution 24-bit format for a more premium listening experience.
*Audio quality dependent on original source of content.
Discover a more immersive home theatre experience in any room. Unlike traditional Dolby Atmos® sound bars, which direct overhead effects upward to be reflected off the ceiling, the SK8Y realistically virtualizes these height channels to add thrilling surround sound to select movies and TV shows.
Google Chromecast™ works seamlessly with popular music apps like Pandora® and Google Play™ Music, enabling wireless audio from a compatible phone or tablet, iPhone®, iPad®, Mac® or Windows® laptop or Chromebook™. Simply open a Cast-enabled app and touch the Cast button to get started.
Works with Google Assistant
You can play music, skip tracks, and adjust the volume on your Sound Bar with your voice. You just need another device with Google Assistant built-in – like the LG OLED TV with AI ThinQ® and LG ThinQ® Speaker.
Wireless Surround Ready
This upgradeable sound bar has been designed to integrate with the SPK8-S optional wireless surround speakers (kit sold separately), adding the premium home theater audio of dedicated rear channels, with wireless convenience.
Surround Sound Expansion
Upgrade to a truly cinematic surround audio experience. This optional kit (SPK8-S) includes a receiver unit that links wirelessly to compatible LG Sound Bars, then connects to a pair of supplied speakers that can be placed behind the listener.
Adaptive Sound Control
Action movies, dramas, sports, music and even the nightly news all have different audio profiles, so don't listen to them all the same way: Adaptive Sound Control identifies what's playing and automatically adjusts the sound mode to create the ideal audio experience.
