What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really impressive sound Such a great quality product, great sound and really easy to set up. The rear speakers really do give you a full atmospheric feeling with films, and the voice level is great for normal TV viewing. I have my system linked to both my TV and my Alexa and the sound for playing music is excellent. Amazing product and I'd recommend to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor voice reproduction - very disapointed. I bought this about 6 months ago to go with my new LG TV.I had some issues with it that were resolved, connectivity issues mostly which surprised me. However,I am very disapointed with the voice levels and cannot get it to work properly at all. The dialogue is so low in comparison to the rest of the sound that getting the volume to hear dialogue makes the rest of the sound uncomfortably loud. Sometimes , like in F1 for instance you simply cannot make out the dialogue at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very great piece of kit. I am really pleased with this Bar. the sound is fantastic. ( I am very picky, as I wear hearing aids, and this bar is one of the best I have heard). It is not full Home Theatre, but comes very close. Very well built, and the dedicated rear speakers really pack a punch in surround mode. Download the full manual for easier setting up.. I am a happy bunny, lol.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Simple! Physical setting up was straightforward and electronic synchronizing happened automatically, when everything was switched on.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dissapointing This often renders voices poorly I had no idea the lack of a centre channel would make voices often sound much worse than with TV's inbuilt speakers. Why can't frequencies be boosted/altered? The biggest disappointment is that coupled with an LG OLED65C8PLA on Bluetooth it steadily looses audio sync over 20-40minutes! Turning Bluetooth on and off again resyncs but it steadily gets worse, to be rubbish in 20-40mins. When on optical cable it (mostly) stays in sync, NEVER on Bluetooth. and magic remote does not control soundbar on optical cable. Very disappointing product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I brought this a few weeks ago, wished it had a treble control cause the voice is not very clear to hear in my medium to large size living room, difficult to hear vocal (voice) . Unfortunately, there were no SK5R demo models at John Lewis or at any other stores in London. Tested an SK5 at John Lewis but it was plugged to a shop LG demo video of forest scene hence mo voice to test. This does not work for at me as speech and vocal are not clear without able to enhance it (i.e a treble or voice (Vocal enhancment) control would have helped). Unfortunately, I am unable to take it back to my London store as I transported it to my home in Rome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great surround sound I purchased this about a week ago and I am very pleased with my purchase. It was very easy to install and the sound is crystal clear with good rumble of base when playing blue rays and dvds, The dialogue on films and tv is very clear to. The only niggle I have is the rear speakers are advertised as wireless but you still have cables from the rear station box, although if you read the small print it does say cables are mandatory on rear speakers. All in all very pleased.
