What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound I purchased the sound bar to add a little more kick from the sound from the TV. It Definitely delivers. I can hear voices and feel the explosions like never before. I did purchase the rear satellite speakers to get the total surround experience. The System setup is a easy plug and play and easy to control with my LG tv.

Does this sound bar support 4k/hdr passthrough via ARC? For example, Xbox one x to sound bar to LG C7 65in TV. Would this work with watching 4k/HDR content?
