Sound bar GREAT - Set Up Instructions Not-So-Great,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: LG Electronics NBN36 280W 37.4 Inch Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer and Bluetooth (2014 Model) (Electronics)
I bought this sound bar to connect to my Panasonic Viera HDTV. Sound bar setup was easy -- plug the included optic cable into the TV and back of the sound bar then plug the sound bar power cord into an outlet. Syncing the wireless subwoofer to the sound bar was another story.
The Owner's Manual is vague in that it refers to "the unit" when describing components so you don't know if they mean subwoofer or sound bar. Sound bar light flashed red and yellow which wasn't covered in the manual at all.
Nothing in the troubleshooting section of the manual described what I was seeing on the sound bar display panel and on the subwoofer. Long story short -- LG's website has LIVE CHAT. I was able to contact LG support and get the syncing issues resolved.
The sound is absolutely AMAZING. I have a great room configuration and the subwoofer positioned about 10 feet away from the TV and soundbar. The depth, richness and clarity gives me goosebumps!

We have an LG TV and the sound is terrible. We can hear the background music well, but can barely hear the voices over the music. Do you find that the soundbar allows you to hear the voices well on your TV programs?

I had that issue when I first started using it but ensuring the AV Sync is ON and setting a different SOUND EFFECT MODE for whatever I'm watching corrects the issue. I noticed it more when streaming videos and on broadcast stations rather than cable and satellite stations.
