What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for the size and price I am a college student and this system bumps and thumps for the size of it. It didn't kill my pocket and it annoyed my neighbors. Great Combo!! Good job LG!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sounds fine but can't turn off auto power down Sound is good. However, I'm disappointed the auto power down feature can't be disabled! I have my computer attached to my TV and if all I'm doing is browsing (no sound) then the sound bar shuts off after 15 minutes which cuts the HDMI output off (since it's pass thru to TV) and I get a black screen. Very annoying. The sound bar should not require sound signal to keep itself on. (Auto power down is different than auto power on/off which can be disabled).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great soundbar; optional rears make it even better BLUF: If you aren't in the market for a full audio system setup (i.e., AV receiver plus speakers for 7.1/5.1, etc.), but want a great, easy, and cost-effective audio upgrade, this is the soundbar for you! It gets the job done with ease, and the system gets even better if you add in the optional rear speakers. I'm a happy customer that would purchase again! NOW for the full review: I have a some experience with speaker setups. In my old house, I personally ran wires behind drywall and in the attic to install a 600W 5.1 system. But I moved to another city for a job, and I was looking for a cheaper and easier solution for the time being. I decided on the SJ5Y for several reasons. (1) price, (2) good balance of price vs output (wattage per speaker), (3) ease of adding wireless, true surround speakers, (4) Dolby, DTS, and FLAC decoders, (5) connection options - HDMI in & out, optical, and bluetooth, and (6) it looks good and matches my LG TV. I was not looking for Chromecast, Apple, Spotify, Pandora or any other built-in applications with my soundbar. I have a phone and a game console, and between the two, I have convenient media streaming options covered. If you NEED those applications baked in, then look elsewhere. System setup is very simple. Plug in your cables between TV/SoundBar/Other media device, plug in your power, and then start listening! The subwoofer paired automatically without any prompting by me. Same for the rear speakers (item SPJ4). Distance from sub to soundbar is about 10 feet, and the rear to soundbar is about 20 feet. Once I downloaded and installed the updated firmware via USB, as well as threw out the pack-in optical cable and used a quality one, the system's sound interruptions stopped once and for all. On the 2.1 setup (No rear speakers): Sound quality is exceptional and clear for what it is - 60W per channel with a 200W Sub. Again, coming from a larger, more expensive 5.1 setup, I can tell the difference between output and range/fullness for the individual speakers. BUT, I was VERY IMPRESSED at what this system can do. This soundbar is easily able to fill the room. I have yet to even come close to maxing out the volume on this baby, and expect I never will. The Adaptive Sound Control (ASC) is my preferred sound mode for TV shows - it enhances voices very well - but I switch it over to BASS while listening to music to help get a more robust range of highs and lows. On the 4.1 setup (With rear speakers): I experimented with my game console outputting uncompressed 7.1 audio over HDMI. This awesome soundbar was able to handle all that data and push it out to the different channels superbly. So I am able to hear that wonderful behind-the-head zooming fly-by or ambient noise when the protagonist is in a crowded room. My movies and games sound wonderful; oh, how I had missed surround sound! For my movies and games, I usually change my sound mode to STANDARD. The CINEMA option is OK, but I think it tries to widen the sound field too much, causing some distraction for me. To those of you with an LG TV: in my experience, the LG SoundSync limits sound output to stereo from both front and back - not true surround sound. It is great to control the TV and sound with one remote, but not at the expense of true surround. Haven't been able to determine if this is simply a limit imposed by my TV or not, or my choice of connecting soundbar and TV with an optical cable, but once I turned Sound Sync off, the true rear channels returned to action.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound Bar Very happy with this product, we plan on purchasing the surround sound speakers soon... [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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.
