Rated 4 out of 5 by DrSpinUSA Incredible Home Theater - I LOVE IT !! - WOW!
LG has thrown everything into the BH9430PW, including an impressive range of network features and sound modes.
The stand-out feature is 9.1-channel surround sound, which expands the stage vertically using those upward-firing drivers in the speakers. The idea is to replicate the acoustics of a concert hall or cinema. It’s backed up by 3D Sound Zooming, designed to match the ‘movement’ of 3D images – so if something’s coming towards you, the audio should do the same.
The BH9430PW is also DLNA certified, and through its SmartShare feature you can stream music, video and photos from PCs, smartphones and other networked devices.
You can also stream files from devices using Wi-Fi Direct or play them from USB flash drives and external HDDs. The list of supported formats includes DivX HD, XviD, MKV, AVI, WMV HD, MP4, AVCHD, MP3, WMA, AAC, FLAC, WAV and JPEG. That’s pretty much a full house, although it wouldn’t play MKV over a network, only via USB.
The front USB port also supports iPod, iPad and iPhone. Menus and playlists are reproduced onscreen, displaying cover art during playback, and you can control it all using the LG’s remote. Nifty.
Elsewhere it boasts Miracast, which mirrors your smartphone’s screen on your TV; Private Sound, which sends TV audio via Wi-Fi to mobile devices, allowing you to listen through headphones; and Bluetooth for easy music streaming, with Near Field Communication (NFC) easing the pairing process.
On the Blu-ray side the system plays 3D discs, converts 2D to 3D and upscales content to 4K resolution for viewing on compatible displays. It also decodes Dolby True HD and DTS HD Master Audio soundtracks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Aravind Sound Quality is Top, But features not up to!
Top Sound Quality. But...
1) When it takes 10 mins to get the sound on the Speakers, Playing from USB/Disk always plays the sound though TV first.
2) Doesn't play my .ac3 files. Beware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joshism Excellent audio
Connects easily with rear wireless speakers. Bass is deep. Love the Bluetooth option. Wish it had 1/8" audio input. Sometimes needs to be unplugged to reset, but it's been good to me. Had it for about 7 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 Lee This unit is flawless, performs very well.
This unit was bought to replace a previous LG home theater system. When I sent it back to LG for repairs the parts weren't available at the time, so LG gave me a full refund including shipping cost even though the unit was over 2 years beyond the warranty period. I will continue to use LG products in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Unlading Overall I really like it
I haven't use all of the features of this system yet, I have order a 3d LG smart tv and it haven't made it in yet so I can't use the 3d yet, but the sound and some other features I have use I really do like. But the speakers holders is light weight, for the money I think they should make that a little better material. But the sound and features is really good if you use optical or hdmi cable. This is the best surround sound that I invested into I hope it last a long time and the tv.
