Not impressed
 
Easy to set up and pair with my LG TV but the sound quality is well below what I expected. When I turn it up to a comfortable listening level to hear dialogue and an action scene/special effects come into play, the sound effect volume is overwhelming. The subwoofer doesn't seem to scale well between low and high volume. This can be somewhat countered by turning the woofer volume down via the remote but there is no indicator telling you how high or low you have the woofer. There doesn't seem to b...

Don't bother
 
Bought this with a 65" 4k tv because our experience was that the newer tv's have sound quality issues. This part of the purchase was a waste of money. The standard sound with the tv works far better than this sound bar. So much so that we disconnected the sound bar and am using the tv sound alone. It's located in a smallish living room and my wife and I were constantly asking each other, "what did he say", because the sound was always so low... and you could never get it to any reasonable level....

Sounds OK, but power spec is a joke
 
Overall this sounds OK, But the claimed power spec (360 Watts total, 80 watts per front channel and 200 in the sub) cannot possibly be true. The power consumption of the units (as listed) is 22 watts in the soundbar and 33 in the subwoofer. In reality they probably are no more than 50% efficient. That makes a more realistic power for the speakers as 5 watts per front speaker and 15 watts for the sub. There can be legitimate debates around how to measure power levels in a speaker (what disto...

Works Perfect
 
I was worried after seeing negative reviews about this product. Arrogantly I bought it anyway because of the price and also believing I was smarter and younger than the previous reviers. So, yes the volume is insanely loud on the sound effects and impossible to hear quiet on the talking until you literally turn off DTS which is made for speakers above below behind and next to you. If you are using only the bar and subwoofer you won't hear any of the speaking, only sound effects. If you have 2 sp...

5.1's little brother
 
It's not perfect but I still love it! I'm using it in DTS V:X mode, and my room sounds like an actual theater. Movies seem more alive and very immersive. At times, the audio seemed like it jumped off the screen. I also have a 5.1 surround sound (non dts:x) in the living room and this is as good if not better. For those that have problems, the soundbar may not be the culprit. My older Vizio tv from 2015 has poor arc support (bad optical too). It didn't support any audio beside the front le...

Terrible Sound
 
The only positive to this sound bar is that it is easy to connect, especially to a LG TV. The sound is horrible, and the controls might be even worse. There's no way to tell what level the volume is at, nor what level the subwoofer is set to. You can't visually tell if a feature, such as Bass Boost or Dolby, is turned on or off. Sure, the sound can get loud. But there is no setting, or combination of settings, that will allow you to clearly hear dialogue. This is what I imagine a rough draft of ...

Look elsewhere for your sound bar.
 
I picked up this sound bar on the advice of the Best Buy salesperson instead of the Samsung I went in to purchase. The LG sounded horrible once connected and if there was anything being transmitted to the subwoofer, I couldn't detect it. I returned the LG and purchased the Samsung - 2.1-Channel 300W Sound bar System with 6-1/2" Wireless Subwoofer that I had been researching. The Samsung unit has worked perfectly and sounds great. If you're looking for a sound bar in the $200 range, you can do...

Good quality for the money
 
I bought this to go with my 60” LG TV. I had a 55” before upgrading and when we had the tv in our bedroom the sound out of the tv was good enough, but after putting it in the living room it just couldn’t fill the larger space. Now in the same room with this sound bar/sub it is 10x better. We aren’t maxing out our tv sound. Instead we usually have it around 5 on the tv and just a few clicks up on the sound bar. Only thing I wish it would do is somehow show the sound bar level. You kind of just go...

Horrible Worse than my 140$ VIZO soundbar
 
After one afternoon of owning it I am returning it first thing in the morning. Supper flat audio and sucky bass for 360w. My 100W vizo bar pushes out way more and sounds way better. I love my LG TV hate the 190$ sound bar. LG get it together.

ARC is not compatible for all model TVs
 
First, I got an awesome deal on this. This one has more features and is cheaper than the ones at Wally-Mart. When I got it home and unboxed, I was impressed with the quality. I had to learn the hard way that cheap HDMI cables do not work well. I'm dropping a star because it comes with TOSlink cables instead of HDMI cables. This soundbar is designed to take advantage of ARC, HDMI is required and if they were included I would not have sent the first one back. Another issue is, when I connect the s...
