The 550W, 5.1.2 channel LG SK10Y sound bar features support for multi-dimensional sound powered by Dolby Atmos. Additionally, it will play nice with all the major High Resolution Audio formats.

You can also send music to the sound bar directly through Bluetooth or ChromeCast or from an LG ThinQ speaker or any other Google Assistant product.

The SK10Y sound bar is made to match the width of a 65–inch class TV. This means that it will sit pretty under your large screen-television.
