Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
The LG SN9YG is good for mixed use. Its bass-heavy sound profile is well-suited for action films. While it has a poor height performance, it supports Atmos, and it gets loud enough for a large or crowded room. There's a dialogue enhancement feature as well as an auto-volume feature.
