Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only my right channel works. I just purchased this today. I was so excited to use it. Install went quickly and simply. Hooked it up to my LG 4K. Everything looks nice. Turned it on and . . . . Sound is only coming out of one side. I exhausted every option. Sadly, it is just plain defective. Too bad to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy setup and great sound I purchased this soundbar to enhance the audio of our LG 4K TV. Setup was a snap and it synced easily with the LG optical sound setting. Sound is very good and the sub woofer really brings out the bass rumbles in action movies etc.
