Yep $399 for a sky9 with wireless sub. Got the wireless rear modules for $99, $80 off.
While not HT reference level sound, still very clear sound and quite loud, more than enough.
Much better than the built in speakers
I'm guessing the 2018 models are not Meridian Audio backward compatible via firmware? Or is there a upgrade path for it?
2018 LG SK10Y is MERIDIAN AUDIO. It is also written on it. However only the Standard Mode gets all the advantages from Meridian (Elevation Sound and more).
