SP8YA
I picked this up about a month ago now, and I am very pleased with the quality of the sound from this soundbar and subwoofer. The bass is fairly powerful, and I was impressed with the up-firing channels making the sound feel immersive.

Love it sound is great for a smaller room
Really solid set up. I am definitely loving the amount of sound that comes out of the bar and the sub really adds a solid base

LG Soundbar - A must Buy
I bought this product a few months ago and I’m very please read the product performance. It has multiple options to connect with multiple devices. At the same time. You can dynamically use it by LG app. This is a good product and I will recommend to buy.

An excellent Dolby Atmos sound bar
I bought these as they were the best value Dolby Atmos sound bar I could find. 3.1.2 channel provides clear dialogue. Along with the rear speakers, this sound bar sounds really good, especially Dolby Atmos content. Bass is adequate but not very powerful in my opinion. But, for a discounted price of highly recommend this sound bar.

Bar had a couple minor but annoying issues
The bar does not connect to wifi and the wireless subwoofer cuts out interminably. I have sent the bar back for warranty repairs.
When the bar is working, the quality is amazing! Hopefully my set was a lemon and I get to use the bar with all the features functioning.

Good Sound
I bought this about 3 months ago. I have had difficult with quality at times. The speaker gets a small crackle sound, however LG seems they will replace or repair the unit. When it does work, the sound is amazing. My only slight critique is that it takes about 15 seconds for the subwoofer and the (purchased separately rear speakers to turn on. However this is only an issue when you are streaming music from your phone.

The set-up in the app to connect to wifi could be a bit easier. Takes me about 5 times to get it.

Great sound bar for the price!
We purchased this about a month ago and have been really happy with the sound! Our old one started to cut out so it was time for a new one. The only thing that would make this a 5 star product is if the bar itself and not just the sub was Bluetooth connection to the TV. Other than that, sound is great!

One day I'll know how it works.
Bought the unit two months ago and it doesn't work correctly. The app performed poorly, although eventually the bugs magically worked themselves out. Then once it was up and running, the subwoofer won't stay connected. So it takes in and out randomly. I've tried working with customer service, but that's not going so well. Been awhile since they said I'd be receiving a box to send the unit in for service. When the unit is working correctly, I do like it though. And the app does have some good features for adjusting the sound bar. Eventually one day I imagine I will be satisfied with it. But for now, my satisfaction with LG soundbars is pretty low.
