There are some basic controls on the soundbar itself which are located at the top and towards the centre of the main unit. These controls allow you to select input, change the volume, choose the Wi-Fi function, and turn the power on and off.
The included remote is the kind you tend to lose down the back of the sofa, but at least there are large buttons for power, volume, function (input) and mute. There are also large and easy to use buttons for play/pause and skip forwards and backwards. Beneath these controls are smaller and slightly more fiddly buttons for info, sound effects, speaker levels, AV sync, auto volume and auto power.
As well as the controls on the soundbar itself and the provided remote, if you connect via HDMI ARC, then you can use your TV remote to control the SK10Y. Finally, there’s the option of using LG’s Wi-Fi Speaker app to set up and control your soundbar. This app is excellent, with a well-designed user interface that allows you to select inputs, choose sound effects, and set up various features.”
