Sub cuts out very often

Submitted by Snazzy31 - 5/3/2018

Bought this about 3 months ago. Was very good with music tv and movies. With the subwoofer cutting out rarely. Now the sub cuts out just about every other bass drop. Would not buy or recommend to a friend

Great sound

Submitted by Lynclt - 4/26/2018

I bought this within the month really liked the ease of setting it up The only negative I see is the remote. It is definitely better than the last one but really needs the quick instructions on the back of the remote so I dont have to go get the booklet. I added the rear speaker kit ant it too was very easy to set up I would buy again

Fills the room with sound

Submitted by BrianStadt - 2/13/2018

Ive owned this for a month with the add-on rear speakers and still am thrilled with how this fills the room with sound. It doesnt overpower your ears yet I can clearly hear the talking in movies and still enjoy all the background noises. For the price it seems like one of the better options especially with the ease in which it connected and operates with my LG tv.

Wonderful Sound After Bugs Fixed

Submitted by JWS2 - 1/27/2018

We bought this to match with our 65 LG 4k TV and blueray. All were professionally installed and could not figure out why the sound bar would cut out periodically. Researched the internet extensively and finally found something that said a firm ware update may correct the problem We got on the LG site found what was needed and that did the trick. Finally a stellar audio to match the incredible video. We are well pleased but wish the fix could have been made easier to discover. Now I would absolutely recommend the matching LG system for the finest performance available to date.

Great soundbar optional rears make it even better

Submitted by SuspectZulu - 8/20/2017

BLUF: If you arent in the market for a full audio system setup i.e. AV receiver plus speakers for 7.1/5.1 etc. but want a great easy and cost-effective audio upgrade this is the soundbar for you It gets the job done with ease and the system gets even better if you add in the optional rear speakers. Im a happy customer that would purchase again NOW for the full review: I have a some experience with speaker setups. In my old house I personally ran wires behind drywall and in the attic to install a 600W 5.1 system. But I moved to another city for a job and I was looking for a cheaper and easier solution for the time being. I decided on the SJ5Y for several reasons. 1 price 2 good balance of price vs output wattage per speaker 3 ease of adding wireless true surround speakers 4 Dolby DTS and FLAC decoders 5 connection options - HDMI in out optical and bluetooth and 6 it looks good and matches my LG TV. I was not looking for Chromecast Apple Spotify Pandora or any other built-in applications with my soundbar. I have a phone and a game console and between the two I have convenient media streaming options covered. If you NEED those applications baked in then look elsewhere. System setup is very simple. Plug in your cables between TV/SoundBar/Other media device plug in your power and then start listening The subwoofer paired automatically without any prompting by me. Same for the rear speakers item SPJ4. Distance from sub to soundbar is about 10 feet and the rear to soundbar is about 20 feet. Once I downloaded and installed the updated firmware via USB as well as threw out the pack-in optical cable and used a quality one the systems sound interruptions stopped once and for all. On the 2.1 setup No rear speakers: Sound quality is exceptional and clear for what it is - 60W per channel with a 200W Sub. Again coming from a larger more expensive 5.1 setup I can tell the difference between output and range/fullness for the individual speakers. BUT I was VERY IMPRESSED at what this system can do. This soundbar is easily able to fill the room. I have yet to even come close to maxing out the volume on this baby and expect I never will. The Adaptive Sound Control ASC is my preferred sound mode for TV shows - it enhances voices very well - but I switch it over to BASS while listening to music to help get a more robust range of highs and lows. On the 4.1 setup With rear speakers: I experimented with my game console outputting uncompressed 7.1 audio over HDMI. This awesome soundbar was able to handle all that data and push it out to the different channels superbly. So I am able to hear that wonderful behind-the-head zooming fly-by or ambient noise when the protagonist is in a crowded room. My movies and games sound wonderful oh how I had missed surround sound For my movies and games I usually change my sound mode to STANDARD. The CINEMA option is OK but I think it tries to widen the sound field too much causing some distraction for me. To those of you with an LG TV: in my experience the LG SoundSync limits sound output to stereo from both front and back - not true surround sound. It is great to control the TV and sound with one remote but not at the expense of true surround. Havent been able to determine if this is simply a limit imposed by my TV or not or my choice of connecting soundbar and TV with an optical cable but once I turned Sound Sync off the true rear channels returned to action.
