Pros and Cons

Pros4

Using optical, my tv controls the volume of the soundbar. Soundbar turns on automatically when my tv is powered on.

Sound is pretty good for the price and the subwoofer is noticeable but not overpowering. It's absolutely amazing with the wifi sub and the hdmi connection allowing for dolby atmos.

My family appreciates the rumble we feel on the floor while watching movies. Buy with confidence, you will not be disappointed.

The clarity is pristine, it gets very loud, thumps decent, but if you're looking for a low house shaking bass rumbling frequency response you will not achieve it with this. And the subwoofer is very thunderous.

Cons2

Problem stems from it dropping connections to the tv on both e-arc and optical. Swapped hdmi cable - no menu. The cec was always subpar even before this.

The sound quality is subpar even for the price. The wireless subwoofer randomly pops and clicks. I'm no audiophile.

Pros2

The design enhances the overall sound. The app is handy, though i don't see myself opening it too frequently. The bar delivers powerful and moving audio that flows all around you.

Bluetooth works as expected, make sure to set your soundbar up to only be discoverable when on your wifi network. Compatibility with airplay 2, chromecast, and other streaming platforms provides you with endless options for wireless audio playback.

Cons4

The rear/sub speakers connectivity is absolutely abhorrent. There is no option to wire the speakers, so we are forced to live with the terrible wireless connectivity this system offers. The bass is ridiculously low and soft.

Lg says reboot. The process of warranty is so cumbersome it seems they want you to quit. There is a reason lg is down the list.

They recommend a hilti product, not included. My advice is to check this before deciding to keep the sound bar. Like many other lg products, this trash deserves a negative rating.

That's a significant difference and one that was unacceptable to me. The sub is no better. This is just pathetic.
