Rated 5 out of 5 by from Frustrating at first. Now it's a piece of cake. App is overly ambitious. LG tried to put too much into it. Large learning curve. After 8 months of ownership, I'm getting pretty good at it. To my eye, these are the most attractive, elegant design of any speaker on the market today.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It needs to be reset all the F. Time I bought this to have at my office but every week i basicly have to reset the thing if it's been offline for to long. It just doesn't want to go online. I've also tried with the LG "router" that you can buy with it. Basicly don't buy it...it sucks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sound but can't get it to work with soundbar I bought this to hook with the soundbar for the tv. It will not work with the tv. It works with the computer to play music but can't get the right combination to get it to work with the soundbar on the tv and that is what I bought it for. So for now it just sits on the shelf.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from terrible dissapointment So dissapointed I bought this product. Terrible connection problems, cannot connect my H7 to my ultra hd bluetooth LG tv, very akward and unreliable software, buggy. Based on the price I paid I assumed I would be getting a very good product that works well all the time.
