What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Bluetooth between the sound bar and sufwoofer. The subwoofer loses connection everyday for the past year and I’m tired of trying to constantly on a daily basis. Sometimes more than once a day. The mute and repair button sync never works. I can’t get the repair message to come up. It’s very frustrating. I had this for a while. The only thing I can do is it reset on back of subwoofer and unplug and replay it in. Most times that does not work either. It’s the luck of the draw for it to work. But I can’t return it to the store to get my money back and can’t afford a hardwired system. No wonder this model is discontinued

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good when it worked!!!! This soundbar is three years old and the bluetooth subwoofer has stopped working! I've tried everything and even a technician couldn't get it to work. Now just have the soundbar which is no better on it's own than the tv speakers. Equipment like this shouldn't last only three years. Have no other realistic option other than to buy another soundbar, not LG of course! I'm sure some companies inbuild components with a life expectancy just exceeding the woefully inadequate warranty period of one year. Avoid LG soundbars in my very limited experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lg smart tv Great tv that works with my smart phone. Color is great. More functionality with embedded apps when you log into the lg platform but I’d rather keep my info private.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid sound I've had the soundbar and wireless Bluetooth subwoofer for well over a year and have generally been pleased with the product. It's definitely good value for the money. Our soundbar is hooked up to a TV in a large family room/open kitchen area and fills the space with good sound. It's much better than the TV speakers. My main complaint would be with the present sound profiles -- we have trouble finding one that provides loud and clear voices. It sometimes can be difficult to hear announcers for sporting events clearly, especially when competing with other ambient noices in our house. Overall, though, I would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound quality I have this piece of electronic for almost 4 years now. I guess you cant buy it now in store (such pity). For all these years it worked flawlesly. Amazing sound quality (you cant deny benefits of active subwoofer). I use it in pair with LG TV via optical cable and auto power on/off works great. After 2 years or so remote sudenly starts to suck all power from batteries in week (you replace them and in week they are death), but i suspect my son pour some soda on it. But i had to buy new programable remote for my TV (someone break it in half :D) so i just defined critical functions on it, like on/off, function, and volume (is you use it for BT playback) and Im fine. So I cant do nothing else then recommend it if you can find one somewhere (in good shape ofc).

What portable bluetooth speakers can I connect my sound bar. I have sound bar NB3530A.

Asked by: Bernie1953
Hi Bernie1953. The LG Sound Bar Audio System with Bluetooth Connectivity, Model # NB3530A will receive Bluetooth audio signals from other devices that it is paired to, but it does not transmit Bluetooth signals so you cannot pair it to other speakers that are also just receivers...^IFV

My Sound bar “bt ready” will not appear on the screen. Must I reset my sound bar NB3530a or is it broken?

Asked by: NOLA101
I was told that if BT Ready doesn't show, it means that it has been paired to a previous bluetooth device and it cannot be paired with another phone, and the old pairing cannot be cleared. If there is a way to clear the settings, I'd be interested to know.
