    Good sound quality, fatal remote control omission

    This sound bar will give you good sound. However LG made one really boneheaded mistake. This device will not allow you to control it with a universal remote. My previous sound bar allowed it. And pretty much any home theater system of TV allows you to connect to a universal remote. To use this sound bar you're gonna have to have 2 remote controls handy all the time. Not a wise decision by LG to not include this basic functionality.

    Great Soundbar for the Price

    Love this soundbar, it was so easy to hook up to my TV. And my LG TV is 5 years old. I just took it out of the box and plugged the optical cord into the TV and plugged the power cord in for the subwoofer and I was done. The sound that comes out of this is fantastic. Connects to my S8 phone instantly. Couldn't ask for a better soundbar for the prize. Only thing I would change about this soundbar is that it doesn't show you the volume going up or down or the input when you try and change it.

    I bought this on a Black Friday sale and it was a great purchase, I love the sound it provides and it has a wireless sub woofer to go with it. I am not an audio head so I cannot give you much detail about sound quality and how the high and lows sound. But I can say it has really enhanced my viewing experience at home. My only problem so far is since hooking it up to the TV. Once out of every 5 days or so the TV will not auto wake and I have to turn it on with the remote.

    Purchased for my dad who is a bass guy. Putting it together was ok. Instructions were not all that great, so if you are decent at tech, it will be a quick set up for you. Sound is great, but only on cinema mode. ARS and the regular mode are not great. Keep it on cinema. The biggest thing for me were the inputs. There's only Bluetooth and optical inputs. NO aux, NO coax, NO HDMI in/out, and NO L/R channels. If you can live with that, it's great. 3.5/5 stars

    Easy Set-up

    Bought this for my Dad who has had the same stereo "sound system" for 30 years, but also my first soundbar. Hookup was literally done in 10 minutes. The sound provided for his 12' x 16' living room was great. We're no audiophiles so others more picky may hear something different, but the bar and woofer provides more warm, full sound than before. Was everything I hoped it would be for him, along with the ease of bluetooth connectivity for switching between music from iphone and TV.

    Pretty happy with it overall for the money. Sound is decent, subwoofer is nice other than the bluetooth connection. It has trouble staying connected here and there. I think our neighbor runs another bluetooth device and it interferes with it. it would be nice if it had an optional cable backup plug to not use the bluetooth, but that is the only option. So, if it doesn't work because of interruption then you are hosed and might as well get something else. I would buy it again though.

    As the title says this comes at a great price, with a great sound, and excellent quality. If you are looking to enhance the sound/volume of your television but don't want to throw down a ton of cash, or even if you're willing to throw down a larger amount, get this soundbar and save yourself some cash and improve your TV experience.

    Love having a real Bluetooth speaker to play music on my phone. No need for all the little wimpy ones now...Except for one to use outside. Great bass too. Do a YouTube search for deepest bass test. Thing rocks..Crisp center channel too. If you don't have room for a clunky receiver set this is perfect alternative. Comes with audio cable for TV...Make sure TV has an optical audio output otherwise you can't use with TV

    I got this both to beef up the sound on a 32" 720p-era tv and to have an easy way to stream music from spotify on iphone/ipad. It does well at both. Very easy to setup and naturally does what you want with switching between sources and going into power save mode. I wish it had the ability to set a custom EQ along with the presets + bass level control. At the Black Friday price it was worth it just as a bluetooth speaker. Wish I'd gotten 2 of them before they sold out.

    I bought the LG 2.1 300w Surround Soundbar 2 months ago, and so far I can say this setup is awesome!. It has several nice features, and an immersive bass filled sound. I like the feature of being able to select "Night Mode"; this reduces the bass and loudness of the soundbar, so that at night I don't disturb my roommate. You can also adjust the bass with the remote to fit your liking. It also just sounds good overall. The Soundbar itself has great mid-range and treble sound.

    This was the first soundbar that I have purchased. I usually opt for headphones when streaming or gaming. I have been very impressed with the sound quality and volume levels of this piece. It’s also a great feature that it is compatible with my LG 60 inch television and that it turn on and off with it. I can use the same remote for volume control through the television also. I picked this up on a Black Friday special and am pleased I did.

    I bought this because my husband and I sometimes have trouble hearing parts of the conversation between characters in movies. We put the subwoofer between our chairs. It seems to have an echo and distorts the sound so much that we don’t turn it on much anymore. There was no instruction book that came with it, so it could be that we just don’t know how to properly adjust it. It needed to have instructions included. For us it is basically useless and a waste of money.

    The soundbar is bluetooth capable and will sync to your smart phone, the issue I had (maybe it was because I bought an open-box item) was that every so often it would not put out audio via the optical cable. i would have to unplug/plug in to get it to work. After a few days of that, I was done. I took it back. It sounded great when it was connected to my phone and when it did work with the TV. I may buy another one.

    I recently had a baby so it was bye bye to my 5.1 surround sound system. It's hard to really objectively write this review because soundbars don't compare with full out surround sound. However, I'll try! It sounds good, easy setup, and low profile. It's nice that there are no cords all around (hence the reason i got rid of my 5.1 system). It won't replace a 5.1 system but it sounds good for what it is.

    This soundbar and sub woofer combo has great sound without taking up a lot of space. I have an open floor plan and these two work as if you have a whole surround system. I would highly recommend these to anyone. Great for watching either TV shows or an action packed movie. I am going to get another pair for the basement as well.

    Got this on sale for a low price and am very pleased with the sound it produces. I have a 65" 4k-UHD TV and the sound improvement is dramatic. With the TV audio set to output surround sound, the audio coming out of this 2.1 system is impressive. I definitely experience a "surround sound" effect. The sound is very balanced with good bass, midrange and highs. Dialogue is clear and the volume can be turned up quite high without any apparent distortion.

    Purchased LG sound bar on sale at Best Buy for 149.99 which was lower than all other stores including Amazon and eBay at the time. The speakers on our flat screen 4k TV just didn't have good volume or sound quality. Seems this is true for most flat screen TV's, so we opted to add a low profile sound bar, and we are glad we did. The difference in sound quality and volume is significant.

    So I wanted to wait for a while before I wrote a review. I must say that I was blown away by the sound. This has been one of the best purchases I have made this year for the amount of money it cost. The only negative I will give this soundbar is that unlike it's early versions they no longer have an actual screen. This makes it almost impossible to see what you currently have selected. This is only a minor nuisance at best though.

    I love my sound bar. I've been on the fence for a while about making the right purchase, but one day I made up my mind and finally went into the store and picked up this product. It works as I expected it to. The sound is crystal clear and sounds amazing during theatrical films, during movie night! Thanks to the very informative and patient agent, my purchase was swift allowing me to make my final purchase decision.

    This could not have been easier to hook up. We thought we needed an optical audio cable that I bought separately but it was included in this package. We hooked it up to our 2014 non-smart LG TV and was working within minutes. Works great for both our PlayStation 4 as well as just watching movies. I bought this because I trust the brand and I wanted a subwoofer to make sure we had sufficient bass and this one delivers very well.
