Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound bar for the price Easy set up out the box, sound quality is great for the living room with my LG 55". Movies are even better now with the theater like sound. Regular tv is also upgraded. With bluetooth, streaming music from my devices is awsome!!!!. If you dont want to spend a ton of money on popular name brand sound bars this is the sound bar for you!!!! Great sound bar for the price. Dont wait. Get one, youll be glad you did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product This was such an excellent purchase a fantastic addition to my home television experience. Setup was very easy especially the connection to the wireless sub-woofer which was completely seamless. The sound went beyond my expectations. I would recommend this product to anyone that wants surround sound at a reasonable price. The sound is equivalent to systems costing hundreds of dollars more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sounds great,, but quirky sometimes First off, I need to say, Killer Sound! It's 10x better than what my brand new expensive smart TV puts out. I have a really nice surround sound system in the same room, for use with my blue-ray/DVD player, and this sound bar is almost as rich sounding (nowhere near the base tho) I am very happy with the sound performance. I am fairly well experienced with media connectivity and setup, and this was not easy to get right. I don't mean just getting it to work (that's easy), I mean getting "everything" to work with it. You have to connect it to the TV via HDMI first to set it up. I hate that it does not come with a paper users-manual; it's accessible ONLY via the TV with the sound-bar remote. Supposedly, if you are to pair this LG soundbar with an LG smart TV, the soundbar remote will control both units. Well, that's just 50% true. Also, if you want to use other components like a cable or sat-tv box, dvd, blueray, your going to have a basket of remotes and intense input/output routing issues to manage. BE PREPARED to spend time in the User Menu screens, and gaining an in-depth understanding of Inputs and Outputs, HDMI verses Optical cable, WiFi compatibility and signal strength, BlueTooth connectivity, Power "ON" sequencing, and more. You will not just attach this unit and casually sit back and enjoy all the functions. Here are a few things to note: 1. The auto on/off function only works if you use the Optical cable (make sure your TV has a port) The user's guide and programming functions are only accessible if you use the HDMI cable. So use them BOTH if possible. You have to be careful here, most TVs don't have 4 or 5 HDMI ports and you may need the space for other components. 2. If you are connecting this to a new Smart TV, you already have all the SMART functions (apps, WiFi connectivity to your home network) so don't waste time trying to set this up to do the same) 3. This is an awesome bluetooth speaker for your iphone/ipad, but you must change the input back and forth from Optical to bluetooth. It's worth the effort! 4. Keep the Subwoofer within 3ft of the soundbar to insure it can pair with it easily. You can play with moving it around the room, but pairing will be sketchy. 5. If you ARE going to utilize the SMART functions, a strong WiFi connection is crucial. Even though my home has an awesome WiFi signal throughout, I had to get a WiFi signal booster to keep my system from constantly stalling, buffering streamed movies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound Great sound, not true Surround sound, but great for the price. Only problem is connecting to the internet even after getting WI-FI extender. Something that should be looked at.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from extremely disappointing I bought this soundbar to bring my ne 4k tv alive, but sadly this soundbar was a huge disappointment. The tv speakers were of better quality. The pricetag is very overpriced.

How is the best way to set up soundbar so that there is no sound delay?  Is there an adjustment?  Currently, I have an older plasma (42pj250?) and soundbar (NB3470) hooked up with Optical cable.  HDM1 goes from soundbar IN to TV.  Thanks.

We have the LG Sound Bar NB 3740 and are unable to get to the settings.  When we hit the home button on the remote, nothing happens

Asked by: leisa
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this Sound Bar. The ability to view the SETTINGS menu of this unit will depend upon how the device is connected to the TV. The video signal of the SETTINGS menu will only be seen if the Sound Bar is connected to the TV using the HDMI cable.

How do I program the sound bar into my universal remote?

Asked by: julieblayne
All codes to be used for programming the Universal remote control will be located in the setup instructions for the Controller. If you have experienced trouble in locating codes for LG, you may also try using Zenith or Goldstar codes, as some of these coincide with LG frequencies.

Use with Sony Bravia through switcher

I cannot get my sound bar to work with my switcher. I also have an AppleTV and Sony Blue Ray plugged into the switcher. Everything works until I plug the HDMI cable from the bar into the switcher. I have the TV in the "out" port and everything else plugged into "in" ports.
Asked by: Deb5055
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this Sound Bar. We cannot guarantee the operation of this device in conjunction with a device such as this switcher. The Sound Bar is designed to be connected directly to a television. It is recommended to connect all external devices to the TV, and then allow the TV to route all audio signals, across a single connection, to the Audio Device.

Set up without optical?

Hello I have an HDTV that has many ports but it does not have an optical port. If you hook up the sound bar with only HDMI will it output sound for all devices that are hooked up directly to the tv? I have a ps3 and Dish Hopper box connected to my tv and I want the sound bar to work with all devices. If I need an optical port for this is there an adapter that I need to purchase for my tv? Thanks for your help!
Asked by: kylebb
We appreciate your interest in this Sound Bar device. This audio system is designed to receive an audio signal using the Audio Return Channel (ARC) over the HDMI port. Be certain that the TV is capable of the same.
