Great Until it Isn't
Have had this soundbar and the sp8ya for two months with no issues. Works great, sound is awesome on both, but they no longer connect to wifi. Just stopped. I've walked through all steps to reset and reconnect a half-dozen times, still nothing. The app support is abysmal, didn't realize LG dropped ALL mobile products when they stopped making phones.

I've done everything; reinstalled the app, reset my wifi ssid/password, reset all routers and modems, reset both bars--hard resets--sill no connection.

Not having wifi won't stop the bars from working, just from properly working, as the stock settings you can access from the remote are junk. ALL settings/callibration are controlled through the app, so no connection means your stuck with stock crap, making the bar WAY WAY WAY overpriced garbage.

The product is as good as the app, which is to say outs garbage. If your forcing the use of an app to access settings, make sure the thing works!

I purchased this soundbar along with the C1. The sound quality is unmatched. Playing video games or watching movies - the AI auto detects which sound setting is best. Set up was a breeze. Simply connect to the tv and its all set. There's a phone app that allows you to control the soundbar. Streaming music from our phones is simple and quick. The soundbar is a tad over 2". It fits perfectly between our wall mounted tv and fireplace mantle.

Good Value
Our first soundbar with the needed features I was looking for. Having both HDMI/ARC and HDMI eARC provides easier connections. Using this soundbar with our LG OLED 55C7P, and what a nice upgrade in sound quality. I was disappointed in needing an APP for the custom room tuning (we don't have smart phones). The user manual with this unit was only fair, but the user manual from LG's web. site provides plenty of details. I just down loaded those pages that interested me.

Mighty sound bar, mighty sound
I got the incredible opportunity to try LGs SPY9A soundbar through The Insiders, and it did not disappoint. Firstly the sound bar is rather large. Being that it is a five channel bar it has speakers all around so it makes sense. It is both long and wide but that wasn't a problem for me because I mounted it to the wall. The sound bar came with mounting brackets and a mounting guide to install it perfectly aligned under your TV for optimal sound. It was an easy process but you have to buy the screws to mount it which can be difficult if you do not know the right sized screws to buy. I was able to fit the sub woofer on my TV stand. Through ai room calibration the system feels out the space in a room to fill it with sound so it is important not to block the sound bar or sub woofer. My living room has 12ft ceilings and filling the room with quality sound was not a problem. The bar has 8 different preset sound functions to choose from depending on what type of sound you are looking for. For example it has cinematic or clear voice for movies, sports, music, or AI that chooses which sound will be best for you. Whether it be at max volume or low the sound quality is clear and doesn't distort. I have it hooked up to an LG TV and it has definitely enhanced my viewing experiences. It has Bluetooth technology so it is easy to connect other devices to the sound bar wirelessly as well. Overall I would definitely recommend it. My only reason for not rating it 5 stars is that for the price I feel it should have come with the screws to mount it.

Nice Addition for Better Quality Sound!
We have the LG 75NANO90UPA TV and paired this soundbar with it. The sound is amazing. It has several sound options included to enhance what ever show you are watching. It has 520 watts of powerful sound. It is a bit larger that most soundbars I have owned and It comes with a wireless subwoofer speaker. The setup amd connectivity was easy. It paired easily with the TV and the LG app was also easy to install and use. The soundbar also streams music and connects with Bluetooth devices pretty easily. This was a good match up for out TV. I am glad I got the pair. I received the soundbar at a discounted price in exchange for my honest opinion and review.

Packs a punch! Literally!
This soundbar is nothing short of amazing. Living in an older place it's not feasible for us to run a full wired setup. We also like to keep thins neat and simple. This answered all our needs and WOW is all I can say. A full 5.1 system that is actually immersive. The wireless subwoofer is perfect. With a wired system we would have to run/hide wiring to get it to the optimal location or put it by the TV/receiver where it is not ideal, but being wireless we were able to get the perfect placement and it just adds to the whole experience. We're still in awe of how immersive this thing is being a soundbar. It truly feels like a theater setup at home but kept very compact!

Theater Soundbar
This was my first time purchasing a soundbar. It really complimented the picture of my LG OLED tv. The sound was very crisp. Sound like I was in a theater!
