LG SK10Y 5.1.2 ATMOS Sound bar $819 after tax at Amazon

For those interested in a sound bar I just ordered the LG SK10Y 5.1.2 Atmos sound bar from Amazon for $819 delivered after tax. The LG SK 10Y is currently selling for $1,299 before tax at Costco, Bestbuy, Walmart, and Visions. I know the Sony HTST 5000 and Samsung HWN 950 have better reviews but both those sound bars have a MSRP of $1,998.

I know a good AV receiver with separate speakers will give you better sound but my wife did not want to have separate speakers with wires running through our living room. At 57” long this is a big sound bar but I just bought the 65” LG B7 OLED TV and this LG SK10Y Atmos soundbar is supposed to be a perfect fit for the 65” LG TV.

I will see how these sound and try them for 30 days to decide if I want to keep the sound bar. There is also the option to buy 2 wireless LG speakers from Costco for $248 to make this system into a 7.1.2 home theater.

To arrive at the $819 after tax cost for the LG SK10Y Atmos sound bar there was a $100 Amazon coupon that was applied at checkout.

Meh, I tried the lg sj9 (which has atmos) for a few weeks and went back to the yamaha yas 207, which is about 1/2 the price. The Yamaha was way better than the atmos sj9. If this is anything like the sj9 prepare to be disappointed.

Any sense how the YAS-203 compares to the YAS-207?

Sorry, have not heard the 203. I did some testing with the sj9, sony htnt5, polk magnifi max. The 207 was the best out of these in my opinion.

This was on promo for $200 with TV purchase last month IIRC (may/may not be worth it depending on price of said TV).

You can get this on Buydig for $399 all the time. No tax in NY state. Also the SK9Y is better value for your money.

Yamaha 207 is good. All LGs I listened weren't good enough for me. Since I have LG Tv I started my search with LG.
I ended up buying JBL Bar 3.1. It's on sale btw on Amazon. JBL is just fantastic. Clear sound like Yamaha YAS 207, but much more beefy bass. My walls are literally shaking when I make vol. 20/45 and bass 17/30

I have never heard of that website but the current price on there is $697 US for the SK9Y and $897 US for the SK10Y. The SK10Y has been out for about 6 months can you send a link of when the SK10Y was ever for $399?

Yes I know the reviews have been lukewarm for the LGSK10Y but at $819 after tax I figured I should at least give them a try for 30 days and return it if I don't like it. One of the major complaints that I have read is that the center channel for voices can be too low in volume but I think that has been addressed with a recent software update. Aesthetically the LGSK10Y is a perfect match for my new LG B7 65" OLED TV so I am hoping it works out!

Im confused at how a sound bar has surround sound, or do they mean it supports surround sound codecs?

No - they will make a big deal about $100 coupon application.
