LG Electronics LG SJ2 Soundbar – some other sound bars so slightly flying blind otherwise good.

Great sound, we tried a cheaper one without the subwoofer but this is so much better, it is like being at the cinema.

Wonderful service , and great product.

Excellent sound quality, thanx.

Bought this to pair with a projector in my bedroom setup, decent value, but sound is not the best i’ve heard (compared to a surround sound system in my living room). I bought this principally for the bluetooth connection option as this makes more sense with a projector. I’ve not used this technology for video before, but have noticed that sound and video end up being a half second out of sync. Not terrible, but quite noticeable, i’m not sure if the bluetooth transmitter or the receiver in the sound bar are to blame, but it will do for now.

Really like this soundbar, it’s very neat and slim and the sound quality is really clear and loud it has a nice bass provided by the very neat wireless sub. Setting up with an optical cable is basically plug and play.

Not full hifi quality but good sound from a tv.

  • Great for the money
  • Great for the price but with no major drawbacks.
  • Great all round speaker, play Spotify music via bluetooth!

Nice looking sound bar, not great sound.

Sound is superb and set up was easy. Only problems are that the warranty was in every language but english and the mains plug was 2 pin with no adapter for british sockets,so i had to purchase an adapter.

Works great, but even with a bluetooth enabled lg smart tv it works much better with an optical cable. Over bluetooth it needs you to go into the tv menu and select it each time you turn on the tv.

Easy to set up and sounds great.

Easy to install but you need to purchase a connecting cable. I’ve set up with an optical cable. The sound quality is great, much better than the samsung one i had previously.

Set up upon arrival on my 2 year old smart tv. Has instantly transformed my movie enjoyment, clean crisp sound and a sensible bass level. The bluetooth connectivity is also a big + as the hdmi connection on my laptop no longer sends audio to the tv.

While there is nothing wrong with the device. . It is not a wireless device. Only the bass (sub woofer) speaker is wireless from the soundbar. The soundbar has to be connected to the tv using a optical in/out cable. You will have to provide the optical cable separately as is does not come with the speakers. You can connect other ‘bluetooth’ devices to it.

I am not an expert and have never bought a soundbar previously so i have nothing to compare it to and have only had it a short time. Having said that, i bought the product to try to improve the sound quality of our tv and it has definitely done that. It was easy to connect and pair to the tv using the optical link and being bluetooth i can play the music on my ipad through the soundbar wirelessly. I have seen soundbars much more expensive than this but i’m glad i chose this one.

For news programmes and others which are mainly speech i think my samsung tv is slightly better. This soundbar seems very slightly muffled in comparison and if the volume is just a bit too loud it’s harsh with an ‘s’ turning into ‘sh’. However on drama, films and particularily music it comes into it’s own and is excellent.

Very good pleased i purchased this item.

Sound quality is definitely above average, especially considering the low price of soundbar. Biggest flaw is lack of proper dipslay of volume/bass levels. I wouldnt say it plays like a 160w speaker. More like 120 in my opinion. Anyway its loud enough since i have neighbours so cant go beyond crazy levels anyway. Subwoofer connects to soundbar automatically just in a few secs.

Multi-Channel Sound – Two speaker drives are placed within the bar to deliver a high quality sound output.

When plugged in there is no volume or other information on tv screen as with some other sound bars so slightly flying blind otherwise good.

Upgraded my lg tv with this sound bar and it sounds wonderful when watching movies and tv shows. Pretty big and powerful sub does it’s job great. Very good quality for lower price ;).

Spend a little over £100 on this sound bar and, suddenly, your tv watching experience is full of lush sound. Wouldn’t recommend the cheaper version – but there is a 300w one that costs a bit more – if you have a larger space to fill with audio.

Brilliant the sound is very good easy to set up would recommend.

Purchased this after my standalone hifi died – it’s connections now enable me to not just play my ipod with good quality sound, but thanks to its bluetooth, my online music and now my tv through optical cable. I’d not realised how ‘tinny’ my tv’s in built sound was until i got my sound bar. Easy to set up and operate; very pleased indeed.

Wireless Subwoofer – Free your living room from wires.

I got a cheaper one that was had 120w from lg that was better in my opinion.

High quality sound, easy to set up and the woofer is great. Improves the sound from the tv beyond belief. The blue tooth also allows you to stream music from your phone or from your pc hard drive.

A vast improvement to my tv sound.

Awesome sound and bass for the price. Medium sized, will fit anywhere. Bluetooth , line in and optical connectivity well appreciated.

Nice sound and no trailing wires. Excellent for general home use.

Great product with good high quality sound.

This lg sound bar with sub woofer works perfectly with my lg tv.

Cinematic Sound – Tweeter and woofer components housed in a single speaker unit produce powerful and clear cinematic sound.

Easy to install, great sound, worth every penny.

Bought it for my sister in-law. It’s transformed her tv experience for the better. The sound quality is a big step up from built in tv speakers. It’s not anywhere near as good as a 5. But then at this price it’s very much you get what you pay for. For a bedroom set up it’s ideal.

A really nice little sound bar that sits well on a desk. Mainly brought this as it was the only sound bar that i could find that was the same length as my lg 29um68 29 inch ultra-wide ips monitor. The wireless subwoofer packs a good punch and helps reduce the wiring clutter around my desk. Having a nice choice of inputs is going allow me to also connect my record player in to this as well.

My television is eight years old now with pretty mediocre speakers, this has given it a new lease of life. Very easy to set up with the bar connecting automatically to the subwoofer, also via bluetooth to my macbook so i can now use it for music as well. Cables on both the speaker and subwoofer are maybe three foot so bear that in mind for your set up. One thing i thought to mention for using any speaker equalisation/amplification app such as boom 2, make sure you turn this off before using the speaker as it really distorts the audio. Had me thinking it was broken before i figured out it was the app.

As expected with lg equipment well made works perfectly.

Easy to set up – excellent sound.

Mold Grill Design –

Pleased with the looks, quality and most of all the sound quality. For an inexpensive piece of kit it is excellent.
