Rated 4 out of 5 by chris Better than my expectation...
This lightweight yet sturdy block of sound was chosen to replace a wired mess of a 5.1 sound system that was a special (read: cheap) add on when we bought our 46" LCD TV 8 years ago. It connects with a mandatory Optical out jack (the fibre optic cable supplied...nice touch LG!) t the back of the Soundplate, plug it in and it just worked.
The sound in Cinema mode was room filling sound with decent bass and good mid ranges. perfectly fine for today's digital blockbusters. So far very hapy with the unit but a word of caution...it must be placed under the flat screen tv to literally feel the sound that is 'beamed' directly to you. We had ours initially on a higher shelf and the sound felt it was flying over our heads. It has a wide spread of sound but not so with height. Once placed properly the effects doubles and the richness of the sound returned. Far better than I thought it would. Best thing- goodbye to all those messy cobwebbed speaker wires everywhere. Now LG should make an Android/IOS app to tweak the sound based on your preferences using bluetooth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kev52 Love the small footprint
We really enjoy the "Soundplate," it fits in a very small area that we have for the TV and does give great sound. The only drawback we have so far is the way the volume itself changes. You have to hold the increase button until the sound begins to increase, then you may have to run it back down a little bit. There is no way to see what your volume setting is so that you can repeat it.
Other than that, we love it!
