What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME PRODUCT I'm used to full surround sound systems and very disappointed with other brands so called surround sound with their sound bars. This system is not like the others. EXCELLENT surround sound qualities, feature rich so that I can set the sound just the way I like it. And the price is less than other brands. What a great value on such a nice system. I could not be more pleased with my purchase and highly recommend this to anyone looking for that surround sound experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Latest firmware update fixes "NO REAR" glitch After testing for a few days it looks like the firmware update resolved the surround sound glitch that this soundbar at was running into. Thanks for fixing this so quickly LG. Excellent sound, plenty of settings to choose what you like best. In my apartment I like being able to select a less bassy preset at night a d sometimes just turning off the sub but I miss that rumble so that rarely happens. Glad I picked this up, nice addition to our setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds amazing! I bought this set up a few weeks back primarily as it is easily compatible with my LG oled tv which makes it one less remote I have to use and just plugging in the optical cable without needing to take up precious HDMI slot space. Now, I originally just bought the sound bar which sounded fantastic but the sound would drop out every few minutes for a couple of seconds stating "no rear", indicating that it was looking for rear speakers. I even tried turning off surround sound but that did not fix the issue either. That is an issue that needs to be fixed. However, I did buy the wireless rear speakers as well which solved the issue, though there needs to be a fix for those that just want the sound bar. This review is based on having the full set up (i.e., sound bar and wireless rear speakers). The last set of speakers I had bought was over 7 years ago and I am actually surprised by how much power these speakers put out. I love streaming movies, and gaming. I do highly recommend this product when it is paired with the rear product. However, if you are just looking for the sound bar, my wife and I had spent hours trying to figure out the "no rear" speaker issue as it quickly becomes annoying.
