Pros and Cons
Pros5

Now i’m no audiophile but this system is just wow. Ever calibration works all the time, except when you place the rears out of the soundstage range. If you are looking for a room filling sound stage you may want to go with an avr.

The wireless subwoofer and detachable (and rechargeable) surround speakers transform the room quickly for movie nights and sporting events. The magnets that attach the true wireless sides are powerful.

Easy setup first of all. Easy set up and syncing with entertainment system. I am not tech savvy but it was pretty simple hooking it up after watching a few you tube videos.

To reiterate, the bass is amazing! The sub woofer is such great quality. The bass complements the sound and hits hard when it must!

The bar is nice and has a nice profile. It's nice but the drivers are a bit undersized for the price. There aren't many good atmos soundbars with legit wireless speakers. Had been for over 30years. Sonos arc, vizio elevate or samsung hw-q950t.

Cons3

At times it has errors on which interrupt the sound. There is considerable hiss and static in the detachable surround speakers. A charge lasts for around 3 or 4 hours before they start to crackle and need to be charged.

Sometimes it simply stops working and my sound switches back to the tv. This is when it required pulling power to reboot it. If the soundbar is plugged in, it says load and no sound comes out of it.

A supervisor said he doesn't know when they will refund my money.

Pros3

The sound is great! Great sound. It's a pita. It definitely beefs up the sound. Good karma.

Simple and easy to setup. The speedy-ness of the shipping and the high quality of my item. Only complaint is that it came with a wall mount but no screws.

Bluetooth pairing is quick and works. When sub-woofer stays paired that is. That bluetooth sub woofer though.

Cons3

Everything is set up appropriately, this is just a product fail. All of the mandated power saving regulations are crippling user experience.

This soundbar has bluetooth functionality that is not secure. The sub constantly disconnects and reconnects. It shuts off constantly.

The sound quality of the lg sound bar is horrible. The sounder pads are not designed for table top placement. Consider other options.
