What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ALL AROUND GREAT SOUND BAR !!!!!!! The sound quality if far greater than I imagined and it is easy to use. It has a lot more muscle than you would expect in a sound bar. LG has cracked the code on giving the customer a great audio experience.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from expectation not met poor quality I have had issues with this sound bar from day one. It does not sync with my LG c7 tv. Not able to use the atmos feature or the 4K pass through. The voices are off sync and I loss sound completely during movies and gaming. Must restart complete system to get sound back.

I have my OLED65C7P connected to SJ9 using an optical cable. Does Dolby ATMOS not come through to SJ9 because I’m using optical cable?

Asked by: Shak from PIT
Correct! Dolby atmos only passes through a HDMI with 2.2 . Optical provided will NOT pass Atmos! Also has to be in the Arc HDMI and tv should be updated to fix the pass through by issue.

I am reluctant to purchase this product because there are no Bluetooth rear satellite speakers available that is compatible with the SJ9 soundbar. Will there ever be? What about the upcoming newer soundbars?

how well will this work with a high-def flat screen tv that is older (approx. 10 years) that does not have 4K technology? what limitations in sound will there be?

Asked by: nopunintended
A ten year old TV places your TV around 2008 and by then, most TVs had an Optical Digital Audio Output on them that can be used to connect to external receivers, Home Theater Systems or Sound Bars that have an Optical Digital Audio Input on them. The LG 5.1.2 ch High Resolution Audio Sound Bar with Dolby Atmos, Model # SJ9 has an Optical Digital Audio Input that can be connected to the Optical Digital Audio Output on your TV if is has one. The Optical Digital Audio port supports multi-channel audio, like Dolby Digital. It will not pass Dolby TrueHD or DTS HD Master Audio. The supported audio formats on the SJ9 include Dolby Digital, LPCM which are also supported on your older TV. IT also supports Dolby Atmos, Dolby True HD, Dolby Digital Plus, and DTS Digital Surround which are probably not supported on your older TV. You will need to refer to your TVs manual to see what audio formats are supported and you can compare them to those supported on the SJ9. Your TV also is most likely not a 4K UHD TV so it will only support 1080p and your HDMI ports are in all likelihood, HDMI 1.4 with HDCP compliance. They will not pass a 4K signal. The SJ9 supports 4K Pass-Through since ity supports HDCP 2.2 so it can deliver the full home cinema experience with no loss of 4K image quality when connected to a 4K UHD TV that has HDMI 2.0 ports that are HDCP 2.2 compliant...^IFV

Can this soundbar be sat on the floor directly under a media stand?

Asked by: Darryl80
Hello Darryl80, the unit can be if you would like. You can place the wireless subwoofer anywhere in your room as well. But it is better to place the subwoofer near the main unit. Turn it slightly toward the center of the room to reduce the wall reflections. ^AC
