Very loud and clear
I bought this for 450 and I do not regret it at all. It is vastly superior to the TV speakers and vastly superior to the 2.1 soundbar it replaced. My TV does not have eArc so I can’t speak for the more advanced features. Also note that you really can’t mount this vertically (my old soundbar was mounted vertically under the TV. I dint know how this compares to similarly priced products but I can’t imagine anyone being dissatisfied with this unit.

Okay product
Since making this purchase, a couple of months ago, I have had nothing but great sound and many issues. Soundbar will quit playing sound and must be unplugged and hard reset, as well as having to disconnect the HDMI. Happens once or twice a week. Customer service is of no help because they always tell me to do a hard reset and then call back if the issue persists. I'mtired of calling... I just want the product to work properly. My Xbox Series X will not recognize that the soundbar supports DirectX but it may also be an issue with the TV not recognizing that it is supported. If it didn't have great sound when it does work, I would rate 1 star.

Average Sound Bar
I like this sounds bar because it matches the beautiful TV that it is paired with. Overall, I prefer the sound of my previous one a bit more. Unboxing and set up was a breeze. Rather easy to set up and nice that it is the same brand as the TV. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for your honest feedback.

Hits the mark
I bought this bar to go with my LG 86 inch ThinQ tv and I am very impressed with the performance of Dolby Atmos on Netflix movies and hoe well it mates with my LG tv.

Frequent Errors
A week after our 1 year warranty expired our LG started experiencing AE errors quarterly and taking the dishwasher down for a week at a time. We have had techs out to look at it multiple times and they say it’s a bad design of the basin that’s causing it and they can’t fix it and that the L in log stands for lemon. I am so disappointed in this product. I will not be buying a dishwasher from LG again.

Sounds great
I purchased this w/the LG OLED. Sounds great but needs a better User’s Manual.

Big boom for a soundbar!
I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest opinion. This soundbar does such a great job of creating a home theatre alongside the subwoofer. It takes up minimal space even in an apartment! The sound is crisp and the subwoofer has a deep bass that truly makes you feel like you're in a movie theatre. Great bang for the buck would definitely recommend!

nice sound bar at the decent price
This sound bar is great!! Very easy..just plug and play. You need to connect to the ARC in on your TV for the "atmos" effect. Sound quality is quite decent as well. Dialog can be easily heard and overall sound is clear. I don't like to mess with sound modes as they tend to sound artificial and lose some details in some way. I just leave the sound mode in the default "Standard". We also cannot change sound mode when Dolby Atmos is active. Bass is strong (and boomy so I have to dial the sub down by -3 to -6 depending on what I am listening. Bluetooth pairing is very simple in my case. Within seconds my phone is paired with the soundbar and I can start streaming music to it. Music quality is quite good and I hear a lot of details. Wifi setup is also very easy. I downloaded LG Soundbar App and it has no problem discovering the soundbar. The app can completely replace the remote if you prefer controlling everything via the app. The app can also handle "AI Room Calibration" which I haven't tried. Over all its great. I received this sound bar at a discounted price in exchange of a honest opinion.

LG and MERIDIAN Mean Superior Sound
The SP8YA soundbar with subwoofer 5.1 channel 440 W Dolby Atmos & DTS: X gives a great sound experience, especially when watching movies. Meridian Technologies has been around for a long time and offers quality sound. I was impressed to learn that this technology was paired with LG.

The High Resolution Audio (24 bit / 96 kHz) provides a crystal clear approach and when paired with an LG OLED TV, the AI processor provides optimal sound quality. I am able to control the sound bar with Amazon Alexa, although there are alternate options to connect to.
We set this up in our master bedroom as an upgrade from a 12 year old tv. I am very happy with my set-up and I know we will especially enjoy it in the winter, when it is cold downstairs. LG does not disappoint!!
I was very fortunate to receive this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest opinion.
