I purchased a TP-Link Powerline (look it up on Amazon: AV500, with dual Ethernet ports) just to be "safe". After setting up the Powerline at the main router and the remote module near the H5, I plugged the H5 into the Powerline.
Boom! Instant wired internet connection.
The Music Flow app took a bit to figure out, but to be totally honest, setup was not very difficult. Read the instructions, push correct buttons when you need to, and I've had no issues pairing up the pair of H5 with my LG SB8 Soundbar.
When in music playback mode on my iPhone, it sounds great paired with my Soundbar!! When playing without the Soundbar (which has the bass module), the sound is adequate but not exceptional.
When the H5 is playing in theater mode as remote satellite speakers, the overall sound volume is lower... it's not as loud as if it's playing music. I think LG enters some theater sound algorithm by dampening the remote speakers. Anyways, a quick fix is to reduce the Soundbar volume independently from the H5, then boost up the overall volume.
To be totally honest, the H5 exceeded my very low expectations considering the horrible reviews everywhere. While the sound is not exceptional, I'm certainly not complaining either. If I were to do this again, I'd probably buy the H7 for the extra 30 watts of power... and actually I just might do it regardless.
On one other thing... once you have the speakers " sync'd" in the Music Flow app once, your friends who are on your Wifi network can simply download the Music Flow app, search for connected speakers, and automatically sync up to the already connected speakers. They don't need to go through separate installations! This means your guests can download the app, sync up, and they too can control music directly from their phone.
Secondly, sounds great! Feels sturdy.
Third, easy to get set up to my wifi and online services. App is good and easy to work with.
Most impressed with the sound quality. One of the best speakers at this price range and higher imho.
I have an OLED LG curved TV And the matching soundbar. Stuck with the MusicFlow product if I wanted surround sound, I bought 2 of these. While I do not have some of the same dropping issues others do, it does drop and I have to reattach them. What is annoying is that surround sound will automatically stop working so I'm constantly having to re-establish the link between the speakers. There is absolutely no surround sound to speak of. If you want your rear speakers to play what the front is playing, just muffled and almost 100% bass...go for it. There is no way to adjust each speaker, the Misic Flow interface is god awful. You can see what the programmers were trying to do, but click after click it's an epic failure. Clearly the had no user testing or experience.
Let me make this clear. I bought a curved soundbar for my curved tv. If it wasn't curved and I was locked into LG Music Flow, I would have absolutely returned all of this and bought Sonos. Sonos by far blows this out of the water. That people compare the two is ridiculous. The only similarities are that the system connects wirelessly. That is all.
If it's any solice to those stuck with this product, I have found that if you keep the MusicFlow app open (thanks LG...no iPad app) on your phone, it seems to hold the settings until you close the app.
I have this 2 stars because it was so much cheaper than any other solution and the risk was worth it as a throw away. But...if you can't avoid or don't want to be locked in to Music Flow DO NOT purchase this.
