What people are saying
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bluetooth is very unsecure I have been using this sound bar for about half a year. I have had no issues with it, except that frequently my neighbors (I live in a high populated area of town with many apartments) are fully capable of connecting to my LG soundbar. At any time. I will simply be watching hulu or playing games, and my sound bar will cut out, switch to Bluetooth, and automatically play whatever the source wishes. I can physically hear other people's music and tv playing through my sound bar, and this happens on the regular now. I am writing this review, because this time, someone must have connected to my sound bar once again, because I had just turned everything off, I walk into another room, and can hear candy crush or bejeweled or whatever playing out of my sound bar. I shut off the sound bar, and before the remote even leaves my hands another user connects to my sound bar and starts playing their music. I have no idea who is doing this, as I am the only one living in my apartment, but have tons of neighbors within range. There is no code, or security for the Bluetooth on the sound bar. An unbelievable manufacture flaw in connection security. Which makes my $200 sound bar useless now because all my neighbors freely and stupidly connect to my bar, always overriding whatever I am using it for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound... BUT Great sound and sleek looking with my LG television. But, I cannot get the AV to sync. TV and sound bar are connected via the optical cord. When I increase the ms response the disparity gets worse. Any advice would be helpful. I would conditionally recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sound Quality I really loved this sound bar and very happy with the sound quality.

Can I attach the SJ* to the bottom of my LG TV. I have a 60 inch 60UJ7700. It is mounted on a wall with a bracket that turn out 90 degrees so that it is perpendicular to the wall and I would like the soundbar to travel with the TV. Thanks.

Asked by: JDS215
Just received the T8 stand. Was excited. Unfortunately it does not fit on the 60UJ7700. Back to the drawing board.

I got a video on my phone. Can i play it on the tv with the soundbar

Asked by: Rudy04
HI Rudy04. Please pardon us, but we are not quite clear on your inquiry and would need some clarification. The LG 4.1 ch High-Resolution Audio Sound Bar, Model # SJ8 is a Bluetooth enabled device that can be paired with a smartphone or TV that supports Bluetooth so that you can stream audio wirelessly via Bluetooth to the SoundBar. If you can cast video to your TV or share video files with your TV from your smartphone and the TV is paired with the Soundbar, you can send the audio from the video files you're watching on the TV via Bluetooth. Please check the instructions in your owner's manual for your TV to ensure that it will support that...^IFV

Can you tell me which LG rear wireless speakers are compatible with the SJ8 soundbar?

Asked by: Cdoyle19y6
@LGJoel: are you sure? A 4.1 signal includes two rear signal (5.1 adds a center channel). It seems we should be able to add rear speakers to the SJ8, otherwise it is a big step backwards from the previous generation sh7b.
