I only got the soundbar no rears yet , again i wasnt able to get it cranked up but on the demo cd when the sound engine is on even standing feet away from the soundbar the sound doesn't sound like it is even coming out of the bar, if that makes sence, fooled me good i even had to put my ear down to the speaker to see if what i was hearing actually was coming from the bar lol shut the sound engine off it sounds like a reg soundbar

I've bought mine on Saturday and it was working like a charm till today. It looks like soundbar doesn't want to pass 4k enhanced signal. Ony audio with no visuals...

Can you return it to the retailer and try a different one? That's what I would do after ruling out cable issues

I currently have the LG SK10Y which sounds amazing, but I'm disappointed that it doesn't support DTS:X. When I have Atmos content going, the upfiring speakers play their own isolated audio (e.g. rain falling, airplanes/helicopters flying overhead, etc.) while the forward facing drivers play the rest of the audio. With the Z9F, does all that object based audio just come out of the 3 speakers without isolating the sounds? In other words, does everything sound like it's around you regardless of whether it's meant to or not? Or can it somehow make only the object based audio sound like it's coming from above?

The idea is that it tricks you into perceiving height effects with DSP; seems plausible given that the Yamaha soundbars with Virtual:X get good reviews...

Update:: My living room is 14x14 with one side open to the kitchen , the rear speakers will soon be on small corner shelfs aiming towards center of room,right now they are facing each other from the back side walls just above my sitting position, setup on everything was super easy, only thing i think it is missing is treble control at times i wished i could tone it down a notch, ill be doing some online gaming after the movie ( fortnite) ill return with a gaming sound update soon😎

Order mine from BB, arrives Friday. Wondering if the HDMI can pass through 1080 120hz or 4K 60P RGB???

Also curious if the Atmos processing adds any weirdness to the normal audio of a soundtrack. I know things like Windows Media player, and my Corsair PC speakers, have DSP with a "wide" setting, and it will expand the stage, it always sounds weird and unpleasant to me, hollow, echo type sound.

I am not noticeing any pic quality loss nor any sync with words with Chromecast etc.way better than the 4k pass through on the onkyo i was useing.I am a utube taught quitar player so being in sync is a must for me. so far this bar has done everything right for me! With the blueray tonight i ran it between 25 and 30 for the volume and turned up to 35 to 40 for utube atmos and some hq music and this lil soundbar screams, sub sounds great not the chair shaking bass i am use to but bass sounds good and compliments the bar nicely, i must say the rear speakers aren't a must but opened the sound field and surround sound alot,The bar is smaller than the ht5000 and really looks like a normal soundbar, the small rear speakers are hidden nicely, its one of those where the hell is all this sound coming from kind of systems. The online game play sound was excellent for me not so much for the friends on my mic lol

That’s not actual Atmos content as an FYI. You only get Atmos from Atmos blu-rays (players, Xbox, PS4) and games (Xbox only) and from the Dolby access app on LG TV’s and can be downloaded on Xbox and windows 10 PC’s.

I assure you, you’ll know when it’s Atmos. The real Atmos stuff off the app is pretty awesome.
