LG SP9YA sound bar - rivals an audio system
I received the SP9YA (SP9 at a discount in exchange for my honest review. I got mine bundled with an LG 75QNED99UPA TV. It’s designed to be seamless with TV taking advantage of AI processing of the TV to produce a neutral realistic sound. One HMDI cable and I was good to go.
In the box is the SP9, a sub, a remote, mounting brackets, and an optical cable. This is a 5.1.2 system. Setting it up was straightforward. Plug the bar and the sub in, and they automatically connect. I purchased the SPK8 rear speakers to upgrade to 7.1.2 sound. In my testing room I have a full 7.1.2 audio system, so I really wanted to compare apples to apples.
The SP9 is aesthetically pleasing. The bar looks nice sitting at the base of the LG QNED – they were meant to be together. The display is on the front, easy to read. The Atmos up firing speakers are on either side of the bar (grills on top), and there are side firing speakers. The sub is simply stated. The SP9 has a solid build/feel to it. I hooked it up to the TV with an HDMI cable (Arc). There is one HDMI input (I did not connect an external device), optical input, and Bluetooth connectivity. For my testing, I streamed directly from the TV’s apps. I checked out movie scenes from Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+, music videos from YouTube, and streamed music from my phone.
I realize not everyone with get the rear speakers, but I personally think they complete a perfect surround system as the bar itself will not do justice to rear channels (no straight bar really would). The SP9 shines with cinematic content. I was taken back by the immersive sound, the clarity of voice, the punch of the sub, and just the overall quality of the sound. It compared quite nicely to my 7.1.2 setup which did surprise me. I think partnering with Meridian really strengthens the SP9’s clarity and realism. Everything sounded clean. The sound was forward, and with action scenes was in your face. With straight up music from the phone and YouTube, I feel my audio system does quite a bit better. The SP9 does well with music, but it just did not floor me like it did with the cinematic content. The remote works well with settings as do the controls on the top of the bar, but I suggest using the LG Sound Bar app as it’s much easier to see all of the settings and tweak the system.
I have 5.1.2 audio systems in 5 rooms. I did not expect a sound bar to rival them, but it does. I absolutely recommend the SP9YA and suggest adding the SPK8’s to complete the system.

LG Soundbar SP9YA
It's been about a month now, and I am really happy with this purchase. The sound is great, and when paired with the wireless rear speaker you really get a theater like experience.

Amazing sound
Purchased this soundbar after researching options from LG and competitors. There were three main drivers for this purchase. I wanted a device that integrated more seamlessly with my LG TV, improved my audio experience, and worked with Airplay 2. Very happy with the purchase. The SP9YA checks off all of the boxes and the sound is amazing. Blows away anything I've ever owned in the past. I'd give it a 4.5 if I could.

Why 4.5, you may ask? I have two minor gripes with the soundbar and they are VERY minor. There have been several times that I turn the TV on or off, but the soundbar doesn't mirror the action. I'd say 90% of the time it works just fine, but not every time. The other thing that I wish were different is the display. It is always on. I find it distracting, especially in a dark room, and wish it could be set to turn off a set time after the last change. Both of these could be corrected with an update. Even if they aren't, I'd still make the same choice again. The SP9YA really took my audio experience to a whole new level.
