What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product but no Replacement Parts i have one but the power supply board was damaged by Power Surge due to Thunderstorm/Lightening: Please where can i get the replacement parts.
Date published: 2020-06-06
Rated 3 out of 5 by from NO PRIME VIDEO, none expected 06/01/2020 Whatever is going on between LG and Amazon should not rise to the level of consumer awareness. I did not suspect that this projector HU80KA would not have Prime Video. It does not, it looks like it will not, and both sides blame the other. I have an LG TV and a 2017 LG projector HF80JA; BOTH have Prime Video. LG needs to know that I can't recommend big screen Movie watching without Prime Video. I don't feel 'loyal' to LG, over this. Amazon needs to know that we now use Fandango for the big screen movie nights, and it will become easier and easier to just use the Fandango Library we are building - - on every TV, and mobile device, not just the LG HU80KA projector.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Price? Even If I sell my car, have to need extra money. wall distance requirement is bad. HU85LA is better, but double expensive.

Does this projector send 5.1 Surround sound via Bluetooth tooth to a comparable receiver? Will it send surround sound to an LGSK9Y Soundbar? Or is the output via Bluetooth only stereo. 

Asked by: Melvynray77
The Bluetooth SoundOut function on this projector allows you to pair it with a Bluetooth enabled Soundbar so you can stream audio wirelessly via Bluetooth to the Soundbar. The projector has an Optical Digital Audio Output that you can connect to a receiver, Home Theater System or Soundbar that has an Optical Digital Audio Input and it also has an HDMI ARC port that can be connected to a receiver, Home Theater System or Soundbar that also has a HDMI ARC port on it.
