Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great upgrade from my LED TV speakers. If you like your sound systems to have enough bass to rattle your kidneys. . or . .if you like to listen to your TV at the maximum volume level. .or. .if you are expecting the LAP240 to sound like a 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound system, then move on to another product review. The LAP240 is a major improvement over the anemic TV speakers included on most LED Flat Screen TV's. It provides detailed highs, clear mids for conversation and decent lows to pleasantly round out the sound coming from your TV. The LAP240 is more attractive and far sleaker than any of the soundbases that I previously tried using in my home environment. Most of the negative reviews knock the LAP240 because it only has an optical connection. They also say that the sound of the LAP240 distorts at the maximum volume level that they test it at. Fortunately, both my TV and Set Top Box have optical outputs. Also, I never listen to my TV at anything close to the maxium volume level. Perhaps, that is why I am very pleased with the sound improvement provided by the LAP240 and would recommend it to anyone. That is, anyone not wanting an infrasonic massage of their kidneys.

Sound effect is always at music setting.  I cannot switch it into cinema or standard sound effect. Any suggestion?

We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this Sound Plate system. It is recommended to unplug the power cord from the system and allow it to sit for about 45 seconds to a minute. After this time, reactivate the system and test its operations again. If this does not resolve the matter, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to troubleshoot the matter further.

Will my lg 42 smart tv with bluetooth dongle wirelessly attach to lg lap240 soundplate

Asked by: Bob bach
We would be better able to answer your inquiry more accurately if we knew which model number your TV is. Page 13 of your owner's manual for the LG 100W 4.1ch SoundPlate™ with Bluetooth® Connectivity, Model # LAP240 has a detailed instruction on how you can connect this Sound Plate wirelessly to a TV that supports the LG Sound Sync. This unit is compatible with LG TVs that support LG Sound Sync. Make sure that the LG Sound Sync logo is on your TV...^IFV

my newly purchase 4.1 soundplate loses audio for brief periods on occasion.

this may only be for 1 to 2 seconds or less, but long enough that you may miss 2 to 5 spoken words.
Asked by: uffda
Check to make sure the audio cable is connected completely to the TV, I had to really "force" the cable into the TV until I heard an audible "click"
