Surprisingly full audio in a small package
Disclaimer: I received this SPY8A sound bar and OLED A1 55 inch TV at a discounted price in exchange for my honest feedback:

With the LG SP8YA we are actually "downgrading" our sound experience from a set of tower speakers and center channel for the sake of space savings. I was expecting a noticeable drop off in sound quality, but instead was pleasantly surprised by how full this sound bar sounds in comparison. Overall there was only a small drop off from our separates, which has me surprised. This soundbar gets plenty loud, the sub has decent punch for what it is and I can definitely hear separation in the sound stage, which is good. This has 2 up firing Dolby Atmos speakers, though if I'm being honest, I can't detect much sound reflection off of the ceiling from them, so I think the effect is minimal at best, but it doesn't degrade the overall sound quality. I think any up firing configuration would be similar. There's only so much you can do without having dedicated height speakers mounted on the ceiling. The only con I've experienced has been the interaction between the soundbar and the LG Soundbar Android app. The app prevents the speaker from remaining turned off, and consistently powered it back on every few minutes until I uninstalled the app from my phone. Thankfully the app is not necessary for setup and uninstalling it has not affected functionality. LG support has said this will be resolved in a updated version of the Android app, so I do look forward to that. Overall, I think this is a great soundbar for those looking for good sound in a compact package without the space required for dedicated separates.

We have this soundbar connected to a LB OLED A1 55 inch TV we received with the soundbar as a bundle. The soundbar compliments the TV perfectly well, connecting with it over HDMI effortlessly. Being able to control it over HDMI with the LG TV remote as well as turning it on and off at the same time is nice, and works flawlessly.

Good sound bar
I appreciate the much improved sound over my television speakers, bass is heavy which surprised me with Meridian helping out and the height speakers do not seem to add much to the Dolby Atmos effect so keep these qualities in mind, but otherwise happy with product.
