Could we get another review with the sub. included please? It would be interesting to see how it integrated and what improvements it bought as a solution.

Hey Steve, just wondering if you will be reviewing the Sonos Arc?

You must have missed this line in the review:
"There’s no option to add a separate subwoofer (wired or wireless)"

@Steve Withers I'm slightly concerned by the last photograph in the review, the one taken from quite high above. I trust that you didn't endanger yourself in taking the photograph (climbing a ladder, levitating, etc)? :)

There is a different model – the SN7Y – that comes with a sub, but I have no plans to review it.

In that case I left such acrobatics to LG.

I bought the version with the sub. SN7Y. The Sub adds a lot of bass as you'd expect, certainly enough for me. Its a wireless sub in terms of it connecting to the soundbar, but you do need to plug it in.

Other than the added Bass, i'd say the rest of the review would be the same for the SN7Y as it is for the SN7CY. I got it for £449 at Currys, and i was happy to pay an extra £50 for a sub, but it seems to have gone up to £469

I'll be adding the SPK8 rear speakers as soon as they're available again anywhere. I was wondering if a new model of rear speakers are on the way since you cant seem to buy the SPK8 anymore

Possibly, but not at the moment.
Any reason why? You seem to be the only, or possibly one a very small amount of publications that has not. Seems strange that a big name brand, Dolby Atmos soundbar release would go completely unchecked by someone like avforums.

Partly sample availability, but I'm also busy doing other things like the SN11RG at the moment.

I got confused with the model numbers, I confess.
Apologies to you, Sir, for my not checking which subwoofer you had been referring to.

I’m not a fan of wireless subs. though.
I'm not a fan of the notion of "wireless" anything, because they are not truly wireless, you still have to connect the speaker or soundbar to the mains electricity! So all they do is exchange a speaker cable from the amplifier / receiver for a mains cable from the wall socket to the unit!

Well I managed to get curry's to price match Peter Tyson for the SL8 but then the sales assistant put a spanner in the works and said that they could do the SL9 for an extra £60 as he could apply some sort of discount I was also buying a fire TV cube.... Be stupid not to I guess so I got the SL9 for £509.95
