Rated 5 out of 5 by Tester1 Excellent sound system
I bought the LHB976 to complement my 47" LG 3D TV.
The unit has a few sound settings (not enough). I chose the setting with emphasizes the bass and got an excellent sound. But the unit does not seem to support DTS surround encoded.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dimakan Great!.. Mostly
This more of a complain list for LG designers.
For shoppers - this thing is absolutely great! Quality of sound (even without rear speakers, about which later) is amazing. We are in a process of re-watching our video collection just to see it with new totally immersive, mindblowing sound. Even our 17-year old son is watching with us. And if you know teenagers for whom everything is "whatever" you know what it means.
Now bad parts:
1. Please integrate it with your own LG TV sets better. I have 55LW5600 (and it was the main reason I chose LG sound system). Why does home theater switch to "optical" input every time I switch input on TV back to cable box? I thought the idea of "SimpleLink" is to be... well, simple. I have home theater and TV connected via HDMI1/ARC but I need to reach for remote every time to switch home theater back to it from optical. Would be nice if unit had either selectable default input or remembered last input.
2. Magic wand remote from TV doesn't work on home theater. It does change volume, mute and power (thank you!) but doesn't work on DVD/Blueray/Home theater menus.
3. Would be nice to have headphones output on home theater. I have wireless ones and would love to have them plugged it permanently. But if I plug them into TV it shuts off all other speakers and there is no output for them on Home Theater.
4. Quality control. My wireless rear speakers receiver was dead on arrival. Customer service is great and I am expecting replacement any day now. But even without them sound is terrific and I would definitely recommend it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by rockies Not what I was expecting
I own several othe LG products including a smaller home theatre system and am happy with the quality of the products. When It came time to buy a new home theatre system for my family room I naturally decided to go with LG again and buy what I understood to be their "flagship" home theatre system. After having it for a month now, I have to say I am dissapointed in what I got. On at least 6 ocaisions I have had the controls lockup to where I had to unplug the unit and then wait for it to reboot. On 2 ocaisions the unit has turned itself off in the middle of a movie. I have let the unit download every update that has been offered hoping that maybe the problems would be cured but no luck yet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by frankland7 Good unit, but not wireless
This unit has great sound and great "Smart TV" functions. It is a good value for the price. My only complaint is that the website (under specifications) states that it includes 5 wireless speakers. Only the rear speakers are wireless, and even they need to be connected (via speaker wire) to a wireless receiver. Very misleading.

I feel that once you get the feel of any LG products you will be amazed at the quality and performance that you get.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PharmerB Hello movie theater!
My experience with this unit is limited; however, thus far it has proven good. Let's make a "review sandwich"
It is a feature-rich, 3-D capable, BluRay and online content player with a great connectivity when paired with an LG TV (as mine is).
The wireless speakers and subwoofer have some issues. There are times where the speakers randomly "pop" and in the relatively short time I've owned the unit the wireless link has fallen off completely, despite a reset and repairing.
LG Customer Service ROCKS, and they took care of the wireless issue without a moment's hesitation, and since I've gotten it back it has been a champ - I'd recommend plugging it into a "conditioned power source" to help with the crossover and popping issue. Also, the online content thru Netflix, Hulu, Vudu and many others is seamless and amazing - the wireless connectivity is a huge boost and has never given me issues when streaming. Also, the sound...it'll pretty much blow your mind and music, TV and movies will sound as if you're right in the middle of it - on several occassions while watching TV there has been a background voice on the show and I've turned around thinking that someone was standing right behind me!
Overall, this is a unit that will make ANY home theater a true home theater. If you've only got enough cash to throw at either a TV or a home theater system, my advice is to get this bad boy. This is something that will instantly transform your audio experience and is advanced enought that it won't be out of date as soon as you open the box. Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Solar Terp So Far Very Satisfied
This is really a great product. My movie and music experience is totally changed it saved me from buying a sperate stereo.
SetUp was Easy.Compatibility to non LG products is not a factor!
Wireless Speakers so Hang the Speakers. Don't worry about the passive sub woofer speakers. If you researched HT's before you buy, you know what I mean.
Blu RAy is awesome MAtrix and Bad Boys II. WOWOWOWOWOW
Internet works great. Comes with the integrated WIFI component some products don't.Researched!
ITunes from the laptop. WOW
PAndora - WOW
Tube and more. Still researching all the available apps.
Ideal for the football Man Cave and looks good her too.Nite time surround setting. IT wont be tool loud. Nice.
TO be Continued
BTW it looks great.
You have finished shopping
