We just purchased a new 55" LED TV for our great room and needed a sound system (as is well known, the flat panel tv speakers are horrible). We did research for several days and had finally settled on either the Sony CT150 or the Boston Acoustics TVEEM20. Both had recieved great reviews. The problem with Sony is that the subwoofer is wired and contains all the inputs as well as the sensor for the remote. Thus, the subwoofer must be near the TV and easily visible (given the wall mounted location in our room, its a pain to run 10 foot cables through the wall). The problem with the BA is that it only has the circa 1980 RCA input (which few modern TVs seem to have as an output option). After much research we decided we had to settle for one or the other and went to Best Buy to test them. Once there, we stumbled upon the LG which hadn't even been stocked yet (just saw the box in the corner). After checking out the specs, we were delighted to see that LG had settled the problems! Wireless subwoofer can sit out of sight yet provides great effect. The sound bar has two optical inputs, plus a USB port and is Bluetooth enabled. All ports are on the bar, so you only need a short single optical cable from the TV to the bar.

Set up took about 2 minutes; plug in the bar, the subwoofer and plug in the optical cable. That's it. Be sure to turn off your TV's speakers to avoid any issues with sound bleeding.

Sound is great, assuming you have realistic expectations. This is not a $2000 home theater system so don't expect that. However, for a $300-$350 range soundbar, the sound is outstanding! Other than a tiny bit of static when set on a couple of the pre-installed sound effects (which goes away when we tried a different setting), its great.

I am a bit of an audiophile so I will say that you need to have realistic expectations when purchasing this product. I have an LG 55LV5500 55" TV and the soundbar sounds about 30-40% better than the TV speakers in my case. As far as sound quality goes, you don't get any customizable options meaning no adjustable EQ. It's all a load of presets. For me, all of them sound ho-hum save for, "Loudness" and, "Natural". By now we all know what Loudness does: boosts treble and bass. The rest of the presets sounded very flat in my living room. The subwoofer is pretty large. Quite a bit larger than I was expecting so I had a hard time hiding it. Low-end response was, "Good enough" but nothing special. Luckily it has its own volume control. I ended up turning it down into the negatives to balance it with the highs. It's not a punchy sounding sub. It's very flabby and honky so it will need a little bit of tweaking for sure. The sub is the piece that really separates it from the TV speakers. However, I am sorry to say that after only a week of use the subwoofer refused to work any more. The Bluetooth/power light freaked-out all day long one day even though the bar was off. At the end of the day when I powered the bar on, it was dead. So it's already sent back for repairs. I will say LG was very nice, apologetic, and paid to have the sub returned and fixed. But still, I was just starting to have fun with it. One of the other nice features is the Bluetooth pairing with other devices. I can sit on my couch, turn on the sound bar, and just start streaming from my iPhone right to the speakers. This was an unexpected surprise. I don't know what the bitrate is from the iPhone via Bluetooth but it sounded almost CD quality. My one gripe with this is lack of an HDMI connection. The only digital input you get is Optical.Read more ›

I saw on an online post in a tech blog about a year ago that LG was going to launch a sound bar product. I was intrigued because I had purchased three LG lcd TV's in the past couple of years for different rooms in my home. I think they make a good product that is competitively priced. Sound performance has never been a strength of any flat screen product, and until you get a set in place in your home, in a specific room and live with it for a while, you really don't understand how good or how bad the TV performs.

My 47" family room TV was underperforming, but I did not want to go the whole distance and install an AV receiver and expensive speakers as I had done in the "man cave" that my son has since taken over for XBox and other teen activities. So, when I finally saw the pre Consumer Electronics press release from LG late last year that a sound bar product was in fact coming in 2011, I was interested. I did not see a lot of exposure from CES 2011, but knew it was only a matter of time before it popped up in stores given spring product launch/introduction cycles.

So last weekend the Best Buy circular in the local paper came and showed a free LG sound bar with the purchase of a 55" LG TV, stating the retail value to be $329. The sound bar from LG was available, but I doubted the retail price if Best Buy was offering it as a freebie, as a new prodcut (the LG and BB marketing guys really know how to kill a new product margin...but to my benefit). I quickly went to the web, looked at the Best Buy site ($329), the LG site ($329), Amazon ($256 sourced through World Wide Stereo ... went to their site, $269) and then did a broader Google search....nobody less money than Amazon, with shipping inlcuded!

WOW, Amazon is living up to their price leader reputation I thought.
