What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sound, but..... Easy to hook up and configure....pretty good sound, with just enough sub-woofer in the mix to keep things interesting. Setting up the voice-sync can be a bit challenging, and there's a LOT of online discussion about how to fix it. Right now I'm using PCM output to the bar and all is well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slim design I'm very happy with this sound bar. It has a great sound and is very slim so it fits perfectly in front of my TV. This is a great sound bar for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound Definitely needed with new TV purchase. Makes quite a difference
Date published: 2018-03-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and features I used the optical cable connection to my 8 year old LG TV which was easy to hook up. I bought the SJ8 to improve my TV sound, which it did, and I assumed incorrectly, that I could also connect it to my stereo receiver, which it can't. However the SJ8 sound bar has a variety of streaming options for customized music and radio stations that has offset that stereo connection issue for me. I also plan to upgrade to a new LG OLED TV and this SJ8 should fit, I believe, the new TV stand perfectly creating a customized uniform look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Buy! I bought this about a month ago and it is excellent for great sound on our T.V. as well as our DVD/CD player. I cannot say enough about how good it is! The only thing that would be more helpful is more specific directions on how to set it up. But it wasn't difficult to figure out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible improvement Recently bought a OLED65C7P. The SJ8 soundbar came free, but was on back order so I didn't get it for a couple weeks. I was impressed with the sound from the TV's built-ins, which are usually terrible, and probably would have been fine without the soundbar. However, once getting the soundbar installed... WOW. What a difference. Incredible improvement. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from One major flaw with no answer? We like the sound bar with one major exception: There seems to be no ability to select a "default" setting for when first turning on the device - it comes on at MAXIMUM volume. It startles everyone in the room. There has to be a way to adjust this, but it is not noted in any of the documentation.

I got a video on my phone. Can i play it on the tv with the soundbar

Asked by: Rudy04
HI Rudy04. Please pardon us, but we are not quite clear on your inquiry and would need some clarification. The LG 4.1 ch High-Resolution Audio Sound Bar, Model # SJ8 is a Bluetooth enabled device that can be paired with a smartphone or TV that supports Bluetooth so that you can stream audio wirelessly via Bluetooth to the SoundBar. If you can cast video to your TV or share video files with your TV from your smartphone and the TV is paired with the Soundbar, you can send the audio from the video files you're watching on the TV via Bluetooth. Please check the instructions in your owner's manual for your TV to ensure that it will support that...^IFV

Can you tell me which LG rear wireless speakers are compatible with the SJ8 soundbar?

Asked by: Cdoyle19y6
@LGJoel: are you sure? A 4.1 signal includes two rear signal (5.1 adds a center channel). It seems we should be able to add rear speakers to the SJ8, otherwise it is a big step backwards from the previous generation sh7b.

Is it possible to directly connect the SJ8 sound bar to an OLED lg55b7? While mounted to a wall mount that comes off the wall? I know they have the T8, but that seems to be for sitting on a table

Asked by: DONR60
Hi DONR60. The LG Sound Bar Bracket Stand, Model # T8 is not designed for sitting on a table. It is designed to have the Sound Bar be mounted directly under the 2017 OLED TVs while they are mounted on the wall. The LG B7 OLED 4K HDR Smart TV - 55" Class (54.6" Diag), Model # OLED55B7P has an Optical Digital Audio Output that you can connect directly to the Optical Digital Audio Input on the LG 4.1 ch High Resolution Audio Sound Bar, Model # SJ8 or you can connect the units using their HDMI IN/ARC ports. Depending on how shallow the space is between the TV and the wall with the wall mount that you use, you may need to use angled connector adapters to make the necessary connections...^IFV
