What people are saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good features I bought this and it is a decent soundbar but not loud enough.
Date published: 2019-10-24
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sounded GREAT! 2 stars because I could not get the sound to match the spoken words via bluetooth. Bad lag even after LG support and Best Buy support made suggestions. Bottom line if you don't connect via cdmi arc-sound won't line up. returned item

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?
