What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for me First let me say that I'm pretty positive it was this one that I had. I purchased it a little more than a year ago without insurance. It worked great then 3 months ago the surround sound began to act up and no matter what we did we couldn't fix it. Then we just removed the surround and hooked it straight to the tv so that we can still watch movies, NOPE! after that it all of a sudden could not read new movies then could not read any DVD's at all. Did what we could. warranty passed. It was now scrap. Luckily someone was at least willing to by the speakers off of my husband and I. Don't know if I'll buy LG again. Prove me wrong LG that your products Do give great quality for more than a year because so far your Home Theater System tells me otherwise.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK, but not great I have this connected to an LG LED LCD and the system works fine after being set-up. However, it does not remember settings when it is turned off. When I turn it back on, it goes back to default settigs and I must re-enter the settings that I want (PLX II Movie). Unforunately, the TV also goes back to it's default after it has been off. Everytime I must turn the TV speakers off, set the TV to use the home theater and set the audio system from Bypass (apparent default) back to the desired PLX II Movie. I am returning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mate to my 42LE5400 I bought this system to mate to my new LED TV. The voices are very clear and understandable. The music is inspiring (depending on the loudness). I like the Ipod attachment capability. The only problem I've encountered (probably user error) is I can not link the system to my ISP remote controller. I can start and end the system with the universal remote but not control the volume. I may not be using the proper product code. You must use the digital optical cable to have sound while watching TV programs. The HDMI connection is only active for DVD/CD/Radio use. I chose this system because it was a LG product and would mate to the LG LED TV, hopefully eliminating a remote controller. I may do this if I can link to the Comcast remote controller in the future.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from for beginners First, its a good product for starters. The only problem that I had with this system (which LG did fix under warranty) the dvd player started skipping for no reason, lg fixed the tray and now seems to be working fine. Sound is good, not really great but like I said, nice starter unit, or apartment unit.

Does the center speaker only work for movies or should there be sound from the center for any audio output?

Asked by: shawny
Not all audio signals provide enough channels of sound to fill all the speakers. If a program is formatted for STEREO sound, it would be expected for only the FRONT LEFT and FRONT RIGHT speakers to have sound. A 5.1 or Surround Sound signal should have enough data to fill the CENTER channel as well as the others.
