LG Electronics LG SJ3 Soundbar -, Recommended

Dialogue not especially clear as i’d hoped but a perfectly good soundbar nonetheless.

Absolutely spot on – best buy for a long time, would have no hesitation in recommending this to anyone thinking about it. We mainly sought greater volume for when watching box sets & films – this product delivers that and more, haven’t managed to stay in same room to test how high the volume goes.

Did the usual research prior to buying a sounder and was going to settle for the sj3, but this came up in the black friday sales, well what a bargain for the quality. Depth of sound and build quality is amazing for the price. Even the mrs is impressedmy only gripe is the lack of mounting holes on the rear so had to do some shopping around to find a suitable bracket to hold the sound bar from the base to hang from my tv.

Comments from buyers

“Excellent Sound
, May be a bit chunky for the latest Tvs.
, Absolute Best Buy

Great value, bass is excellent, no problems with wireless sub.

This is fantastic better than i expected really impressed.

A good sound and easy to use but you do get what you pay for.

Easy to set up but the leads are extras. Sound is pretty good and works well on my lg computable tv.

Fantastic quality well impressive.

As sound should be , be as bassie or as cinematic as u need and as for set up .

Sound is fine – happy with purchase. Made the tv sound much better like being at the cinema.

Used to have a surround system but got annoyed with the cables and having speakers all round the room. The sub is connected via wireless and for the price (bought 18 months ago) i am extremely pleased. Works as well as the surround sound system did without the mess and is thoughrolly loud enough to annoy my neighbours. Also has bluetooth so can play music from my phone through it. Will be out of date by now so any left should be a real bargain. Ps i have it connected to the tv via an optical cable, could use the bluetooth functionality but the cable gives better sound with no interference or dropouts. Highly recommend this lg sound bar at the price i paid 18 months ago, should be cheaper now and if it is it will be a steal.

My only dislike is that the mounting screws are at the bottom and not the back of the soundbar.

Excellent sound used to play amazon music from phone and ipad love it.

It is good that it syncs with my lg smart tv.

Very good product, a real pleasure to listen to the tv.

Great sound, easily connects to the tv, does need optical cable if your tv doesn’t have a bluetooth. Now i cannot believe i went without it so long:).

Bought as a treat for myself as tv sound is not very good and this bar works a treat. Good sound and easy to install.

I bought this as a gift for a friend who is delighted with the sound quality extremely easy to set up too.

Best with lg tv as connects seamelessly.

A well priced quality sound bar. Sub woofer gives great bass and is so neat being wireless to the sound bar. Only 3 cables needed, 2 of which are the power and the third the optical to the tv, surprisingly not supplied but you can buy them cheaply. Would definitely recommend, as good as other top branded makes. Looks great with my matching lg tv.

This was an upgrade from my 5. Very neat and good all round sound easy to connect to all devices.

Nice sound and works well with lg tv turning on and off automatically with the tv. Sound is a step up from tv alone.

So much better that the tv speakers on my lg 55′ tv. Great clarity at volume and an easy setup, albeit slightly fiddly on the sound syncing.

Excellent sound works brilliantly would recommend.

  1. This review is from : LG SJ3 Soundbar – Black

    Linked to my lg tv easily and controlled by one remote. But i can’t get the sound to go really loud on programme. Seems to be a better quality but not louder. I turn the subwoofer off also as that adds the base (lots of) but not over volumemaybe it’s my setup but have played.

    Thr soundbar is not exactly what it looks like in the picture and is more of a dark metal grey colour rather than silver.

    • Brought this to replace my harmon kardon soundsticks ii, i’ve had these as my main pc speakers exactly 13 years today. The sound bar fell well short of the 13 year old harmons, i wont buy a sound bar ever again. For good stereo you need two seperate speakers, end of.
