Rated 5 out of 5 by Davidicus Excellent Soynd but Severe Connection Limits
It would be most helpful if LG had provided a built in physical method to attach the Sound Bar to the top or bottom of at least its own TV sets. Instead of having to go to an outside supplier.
An HMI output from the bar is specified. But this connection is occupied by the Audio Return Channel (ARC) / Consumer Electronic Control (CEC) / HDMI cable from the TV So does the HDMI in on the bar carry ARC output? None of this is covered in technical specifications. The best I can say about the manual's instructions is they are very scattered.
The optical sound connection is easily made but the Bar's on/off/volume cannot be controlled by the TV's remote control. The only way to do this is via a wireless connection which uses a program called "Sound Sync" which no LG TV sets seem to have embedded or have available.

This system is a must have for entertaining! The sound is superior and the system overall is very user friendly right down to mounting to the wall. I recommend this to all that are looking!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BobM Great sound and super simple!
Let's see ... I plugged in the sound bar, connected the optical cord, plugged in the sub-woofer, and directed the TV (LG 60LA7600) to audio output to the sound bar. What could be simpler? The TV automatically turns 'On' and 'Off' the sound bar when I turn the TV 'On' and 'Off' and controls the audio volume as well! And the sound is dramatically improved with great depth. Does what it is supposed to do and I couldn't be happier!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nobody Worth every penny
I was planning on writing a review of the NB4530 sound bar only after several weeks of usage, however
the few days of figuring out the best possible set-up and array of features offered, maybe now is better. I
purchased the LG 47 LN5750 TV in May and decided
to upgrade my sound bar. I was looking for compatible
simplicity and high quality. The NB4530 sound bar
coincide with that of the magic motion remote (TV)
was a no brainer. An attractive well constructed two
piece sound bar that produces rich natural audio.
Seamless connections, however, need to understand
and navigate through nuances with two remotes. There are no short-cuts with HDMI ARC, multiple devices and functions. Still, it is worth it.

I have flat screen without a sound bar and after this purchase I will buy another sound bar for my bedroom tv. The sound is great.
