Excellent Soynd but Severe Connection Limits
It would be most helpful if LG had provided a built in physical method to attach the Sound Bar to the top or bottom of at least its own TV sets. Instead of having to go to an outside supplier.
An HMI output from the bar is specified. But this connection is occupied by the Audio Return Channel (ARC) / Consumer Electronic Control (CEC) / HDMI cable from the TV So does the HDMI in on the bar carry ARC output? None of this is covered in technical specifications. The best I can say about the manual's instructions is they are very scattered.
The optical sound connection is easily made but the Bar's on/off/volume cannot be controlled by the TV's remote control. The only way to do this is via a wireless connection which uses a program called "Sound Sync" which no LG TV sets seem to have embedded or have available.

Awsome small sleek system with big sound
The unit fits perfectly under our 70" TV and provides us a theater experience.

This system is a must have for entertaining! The sound is superior and the system overall is very user friendly right down to mounting to the wall. I recommend this to all that are looking!

Great sound and super simple!
Let's see ... I plugged in the sound bar, connected the optical cord, plugged in the sub-woofer, and directed the TV (LG 60LA7600) to audio output to the sound bar. What could be simpler? The TV automatically turns 'On' and 'Off' the sound bar when I turn the TV 'On' and 'Off' and controls the audio volume as well! And the sound is dramatically improved with great depth. Does what it is supposed to do and I couldn't be happier!
