Disappointed.

JerryS773 12/26/2020

I bought this so that I had a sound bar compatible with my LG TV. I like that they are synced with my Comcast remote with one remote on/off volume and channel control. For a while I was getting an annoying buzzing but havent noticed it lately. I considered calling to complain. Also the subwoofer seems nonexistent unless you sit next to it. Disappointed there is no separate volume control. It may be too limited for my needs.

Amazing Sounds Quality highly recommended

Adb319 12/15/2020

I am in love with the sound quality of the LG SLM6Y soundbar. We had a little trouble getting it to automatically connect to our tv but once we figured out the setting it auto connected and we could even use our tv remote to control the sound of the soundbar. The crisp quality of sound is excellent I only wish my picture was as clear. It actually has us thinking about buying a new tv so the picture can match the sound quality. I cant say enough good things about I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review.

Crisp balanced and true sound

Liz4266 12/15/2020

I love the LG SLM6Y sound bar. It was so easy to set up and I was done in minutes. The wireless connection frees up your ports for other uses. The sound is like sitting in my own movie theater. From cable to streaming the sound is balanced and crisp. Being able to connect my phone wirelessly and listen to the music I have saved is awesome while doing household chores. I replaced a sound bar from a different manufacturer and could immediately notice the difference in the sound. It is very sleek and looks nice in my living room. I look forward to adding some additional wireless speakers to get a true surround sound. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review.

Awesome sound

mt2020 12/15/2020

We were excited to get our hands on this LG sound bar to go with our 65in TV. The sound bar has added dynamic sound to our home theatre and the sound is very clear. The included remote has some easy to use functions. Set up was very easy...anyone could do it We had it up and running in seconds We love it Watching movies with the sound bar is even better now I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review but I would definitely recommend this product to any of my friends and family.

Great Sound

GamerJ 12/15/2020

I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review. First impression was wow I could not believe the sound that comes out of this sound bar. Out of the box you get the sound bar subwoofer remote sound bar rubber feet mounting brackets and power cables. You will need an optical cable or a HDMI cables. I connected it via HDMI TV ARC to my LG TV. It recognized it automatically and my TV controls it as well. I currently have a 5.1 surround sound with speakers mounted in-wall thats about 6 years old. We immediately watched a movie and were all blown away. The sound from the sound bar is so much clearer and the bass is much more powerful. I could not believe how great the sound is. The sound is much more powerful than my in-wall setup. I played some games with my Xbox One X and explosions pops and every sound effect were all so clear. I also connected my phone via blue-tooth and have played streaming music which also sounds very clear and loud. I do not see myself going back to my old receiver setup since this one sounds superior to the older system. I plan on purchasing the optional wireless rear speakers to complete this setup. I will be moving to a new home soon and was planning on purchasing in-wall speakers again but I dont think I will be doing that now. I am really impressed with this sound system. I was skeptical with getting a sound bar thinking that my setup was far superior but my mind has been changed. I highly recommend this sound bar from LG.

LG is the best sound

Busybody13 12/15/2020

I received my sound bar and set it up immediately. It was packaged very well and came in great shape. The moulded styrofoam they use can even handle some rough shipping just in case. I was even impressed with the dense foam they used to encase the sound bar portion. It had a piece up top that perfectly fit into another piece to lock in and secure everything. Right out of the box I was very impressed with the design that features sleek curved lines and hidden controls. Even the freestanding subwoofer is very clean looking and blends well with our decor. Set up was a breeze you basically just plug in and pair with your television and once paired the entire system delivers rich sound tailored to your content. Every detail is heard more clearly music background noise and especially dialogue I have noticed a huge difference in sound clarity and depth of sound with the LG soundbar. I hear details and arrangements in my music/movies that I never noticed before. If youre looking for sound perfection in a sleek audio setup that you can customize to your space I would highly recommend the LG Sound Bar. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest opinion.

Sleek design and great sound

Dbat1 12/15/2020

I really love this new soundbar. It came packaged very well to avoid any damage. it comes complete with everything you need except an HDMI cable. That wasnt important to me because it did come with an optical cable which is what I prefer for the best quality sound. It was very easy to set up and hook up to my Samsung television. I plugged in the optical cable to my TV and the back of the sound bar plugged in the subwoofer plugged in the soundbar and put the batteries into the remote. It was that easy. I turned it on using the remote and the subwoofer paired automatically with the soundbar. It has a menu screen built into the soundbar which lights up once its turned on so you can see what settings you have the sound bar on and it changes as you adjust the settings I thought that was a nice feature. It also paired easily with my cell phone so I can access my music library. It also has available rear speakers that I plan on purchasing in the near future. The sound quality was very good for a sound bar in this price range. They were crisp high notes and good low tones provided by the wireless subwoofer. I noticed an upgrade in being able to hear dialogue better than from just using my TV speaker alone. It overall enhanced my TV and movie watching experience. You can adjust the sounds to your preference easily by using the remote. There are several built-in sound presets or you can adjust the bass and treble separately to your liking. The sound bar has a sleek slim design that will go with any decor. Wall mounting brackets are included but I chose to just set mine on my TV stand for now. I feel this soundbar would be a great choice for a small to medium sized room. I received this product at a discounted price for my honest opinion.

Decent sound. Pain to use.

Andy911 12/11/2020

I think this soundbar sounds ok. But we have yet been able to figure out how to use it without turning on tv going into tv settings and pairing. Is so much hassle to use 2 remotes just to get the thing connected that we hardly ever use it.

Excellent Sound Bar

truerreviewer2020 12/11/2020

From the time I turned on my LG SLM6Y 3.1 Channel and 420W total power sound bar with DTS Virtual X for immersive dimensional sound and 24 bit/96khz high resolution audio having already plugged in the wireless rear speaker was so short that it seemed almost immediate that the wonderful sound that only LG can produce was coming through loud and clear You can either connect the system to your television optically or by using hdmi arc. It comes with a very easy to use remote control is light weight enough to move into place easily. I did receive this product at a discounted price in exchange for my review. I most definitely recommend its purchase and i thank you for taking the time to read my review.

Perfect Soundbar for a small Home Theater setup

stanmed1 12/10/2020

I have been looking for a soundbar that is not a large one and at the same time could deliver good sound stage. We have a small home theater system set up and I came across LG SLM6Y soundbar and decided to give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised that this sound system from LG really met all of my expectations. First of all the setup was very easy: unpack the box get your soundbar connected via HDMI cable make sure to connect to ARC audio return channel input if your TV has one and you are set The subwoofer is wirelessly connected to the soundbar so that is a no brainer. I played some high resolution music files first and it sounded crisp I also played a couple of Spotify stations and everything sounded so good This is a 3.1 system and it is perfect for a small room however dont be fooled by its size the soundbar delivers great volume and sound stage. I also like that it has a Bluetooth connection and I was able to pair it with my phone and play my library directly from the source. A lot of TVs do not usually have a great sound and this speaker definitely compliments any TV set out there and will add a ton of benefits in the sound area. I would highly recommend this soundbar to anyone looking to enjoy your movies and music at home. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest opinion.

My husband gives this 10 Thumbs UP

awriter 12/10/2020

We were so excited to get this soundbar. My husband was doubly excited. He brought it down to our home bar to set up with our Toshiba 55 TV. Setting it up was fairly easy a few hiccups had to use one of the included wires with our TV but once it got up and running - HOLY COW Connecting it to Bluetooth was a breeze. The remote is very easy to use and the sound is amazing. This blows our Roku soundbar up in the living room away The speaker it came with besides the soundbar itself is powerful. We watched a bunch of music videos then some of our favorite TV shows. I finally went to bed at 9 pm. My husband stayed up and cranked the volume to watch more music videos. Thank goodness I use earplugs when I sleep LOL This was the best buy and is amazing. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review.

Drastic improvement

SeanM1 12/10/2020

I received my sound bar and set it up immediately. It was packaged very well and came in great shape. The moulded styrofoam they use can even handle some rough shipping just in case. I was even impressed with the dense foam they used to encase the sound bar portion. It had a piece up top that perfectly fit into another piece to lock in and secure everything. I already have 2 others in my home but wanted this unit for my bedroom setup. Its an older LG TV that gets occasional use but this will actually make me want to use that TV more so. I wasnt expecting such a difference in sound quality and Im impressed. Set up was a breeze It came with an optical cable but no HDMI unfortunately. Not a big deal but it wouldve been nice of course. For now I have it set up with the optical and being that the LG sound bar was connecting to an LG TV it recognized it right away and worked easily with the magic remote from the TV. It does come with a wall mount bracket and template which is also appreciated but I didnt use it. Im going to hang onto it for possible future use but right now I have it on top of my dresser/tv stand and it works great. The design of the sound bar itself shows attention to detail even on an affordable model. The speaker grille in the front and the added texture on top give it a nicely added look and feel. I havent changed any of the audio settings as it sounds great right out of the box but its nice to have the option to do so. Im sure this sound bar is sufficient to most with a small to medium sized living room. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review.

Great TV Sound Improvement

ISPublic 12/10/2020

Received my soundbar and it integrated flawlessly with my new OLED TV using the eArc HDMI connection. I can use my TV remote to adjust volume and change bar settings. TV automatically connects to the soundbar wen I turn it on providing an awesome sound. It adds a great improvement to my new OLED TV even though my TV has excellent speakers. It definitely improved the sound of the TV. The soundbar voice movies and music improved greatly and it is excellent. The only minor improvement I would add is better bass. The subwoofer lacks some bass or power. Although they are some EQ settings on the remote I wish there was an app with extra EQ to improve the bass.

Packs a lot of punch in a sleek package

aldoussnow 12/10/2020

I have to admit I used to be anti-soundbar. I always figured you need a high priced amp and speaker setup to have good sound. This LG soundbar proved me wrong. Its mind blowing how clear the sound is coming from a single bar. I have switched between TV speakers and soundbar and the difference is night and day. Dialogues in movies are so clear its easier to understand whats being said even when theres a lot of action or background noise happening. The sub provides a rich smooth bass and Ive actually had to make sure to turn the bass down late at night as I woke up my partner. With HDMI connect I can control everything from my TV remote. The remote with the soundbar is still needed when using the Bluetooth feature to stream music. Bluetooth setup took all of a few seconds and I can even skip tracks using the included remote so I can leave my phone alone while charging. There is also a wireless rear speaker set you can buy from LG for an even more immersive sound. I havent received mine yet but if its half as good as the soundbar itself Im in for a great watching experience and all for a fraction of the cost of some of my old setups. LG has some great products and now I know firsthand their audio line will be where I look first in the future. With the holidays coming up I have been recommending this soundbar to all of my friends and coworkers. In fact Im ready to buy another one of these soundbars for my home office. *I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest opinion*

Small bar but big sound

douggw 12/10/2020

My previous sound bar was at least 4 years old and it worked ok. We mainly used it for movies only. I decided to get this sound bar as it was a good price and seemed to have some good features. I was very surprised how low profile it was. It easily fits in front of the tv sitting on a stand without blocking any of the tv. It has an optical input which is what I used and even comes with the optical cord. It also supports ARC HDMI. The setup was so easy - literally plugging in the bar attaching the optical cable and plugging in the bass sub-woofer. Once you turn on the bar it automatically syncs with the sub-woofer bass wirelessly. Not too big the remote is super easy to use with large on/off button and large volume controls. The sound is so much better than my old sound bar. We use this one with everything now not just movies I would recommend this sound bar to anyone wanting to improve the speakers from any TV.

Wonderfully Wireless

Tobzz 12/10/2020

Very easy setup. Within 5 minutes of unboxing it was connected to my TV with an optical cord and I was able to confirm connection to the sub. It sounds great though the dynamic adjustment of the volume leaves something to be desired as I find myself adjusting the volume very frequently. I also purchased the wireless rear speaker kit SPK8-S and was happy to see that they just as easily paired to the soundbar and now I have a great surround system for my living room. The sound quality is very clear from both the front and the back. The units volume can be controlled through the TV remote which is nice but slightly confusing when the TV shows no volume but the soundbar is making noise. Easy to fix by adjusting the volume all the way down on both so they somewhat match when adjusting the volume with the TV remote. The box did not come with a manual to describe the different modes and I hope that I will soon be able to find more information online Ease of setup: A+ Speaker sound quality: A Ease of understanding the more technical features of the soundbar: B I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest opinion.

Awsome Sound

kushal10 12/10/2020

I love the sound. I cant turn it off. So clear and crisp even with full volume. I barely used a day yet but i just love it. The set up was easy fast simple. I highly recommend using optical cable. The sound bar connected to the woofer automatically. More things to come as i test other benefits of the product. FYI you might want to push in the optical cable on the sound bar until it clicks. After using it i found out the volume can be controlled from any TV remote. i do not know any system does that. This makes it so easier for volume control. Lets face it it is very difficult to keep track of all the remotes. I have already recommended this product to my friends and family.

Mark702 6/16/2020

I bought this sounder about a month ago after view all my options and price points. I couldnt be happier. Has all the features that I wanted in this price range. Skip the 2.1 and get the 3.1 or higher. My wife loves it on movie nights or when cleaning the house connects to bluetooth and plays music from her phone. Goes great with my 75 Nano series tv
