Bluetooth is very unsecure

James13579 9/21/2018

I have been using this sound bar for about half a year. I have had no issues with it except that frequently my neighbors I live in a high populated area of town with many apartments are fully capable of connecting to my LG soundbar. At any time. I will simply be watching hulu or playing games and my sound bar will cut out switch to Bluetooth and automatically play whatever the source wishes. I can physically hear other peoples music and tv playing through my sound bar and this happens on the regular now. I am writing this review because this time someone must have connected to my sound bar once again because I had just turned everything off I walk into another room and can hear candy crush or bejeweled or whatever playing out of my sound bar. I shut off the sound bar and before the remote even leaves my hands another user connects to my sound bar and starts playing their music. I have no idea who is doing this as I am the only one living in my apartment but have tons of neighbors within range. There is no code or security for the Bluetooth on the sound bar. An unbelievable manufacture flaw in connection security. Which makes my $200 sound bar useless now because all my neighbors freely and stupidly connect to my bar always overriding whatever I am using it for.

Great sound... BUT

Tim128 7/4/2018

Great sound and sleek looking with my LG television. But I cannot get the AV to sync. TV and sound bar are connected via the optical cord. When I increase the ms response the disparity gets worse. Any advice would be helpful. I would conditionally recommend this product.

Great Sound but.....

tdmadden 4/18/2018

Easy to hook up and configure....pretty good sound with just enough sub-woofer in the mix to keep things interesting. Setting up the voice-sync can be a bit challenging and theres a LOT of online discussion about how to fix it. Right now Im using PCM output to the bar and all is well.

Great sound and features

TacksDodger 3/9/2018

I used the optical cable connection to my 8 year old LG TV which was easy to hook up. I bought the SJ8 to improve my TV sound which it did and I assumed incorrectly that I could also connect it to my stereo receiver which it cant. However the SJ8 sound bar has a variety of streaming options for customized music and radio stations that has offset that stereo connection issue for me. I also plan to upgrade to a new LG OLED TV and this SJ8 should fit I believe the new TV stand perfectly creating a customized uniform look.

I bought this about a month ago and it is excellent for great sound on our T.V. as well as our DVD/CD player. I cannot say enough about how good it is The only thing that would be more helpful is more specific directions on how to set it up. But it wasnt difficult to figure out.

Incredible improvement

NateJG 1/30/2018

Recently bought a OLED65C7P. The SJ8 soundbar came free but was on back order so I didnt get it for a couple weeks. I was impressed with the sound from the TVs built-ins which are usually terrible and probably would have been fine without the soundbar. However once getting the soundbar installed... WOW. What a difference. Incredible improvement. I highly recommend this product.

One major flaw with no answer?

Paul62 12/29/2017

We like the sound bar with one major exception: There seems to be no ability to select a default setting for when first turning on the device - it comes on at MAXIMUM volume. It startles everyone in the room. There has to be a way to adjust this but it is not noted in any of the documentation.

Great sound and design

Ninh 9/28/2017

Bought this soundbar to go with my LG tv which I also reviewed here. I liked my stock sound settings but I was interested in adding a soundbar for movie nights. I wanted to stay in the family because I hate having mix matched products unless its absolutely necessary. I found a great deal on this set and I was so happy I pulled the trigger on it. I read reviews and I was debating between this set or the SH7B model. I like the SH7B because of the small profile as well as the features but when this set went on sale I knew my choice was made for me. I absolutely love the sound this thing puts out. Honestly its a little too loud at times. I live in an apartment with multiple neighbors so I have to keep it down or off on week nights. It has great bass and the features is what puts it over the top for me. It has chromecast built in and I can stream music directly from my Google home. It also supports HDMI ARC which allows me to connect to my tv and use only my tv remote. It also has wifi and internet connectivity as well as Bluetooth for a multitude of wireless steaming options. You can even add more speakers to it to create a true surround sound experience. Design profile is amazingly sleek and slim. Its also designed to fit tvs from 50-65 inches and has a separate mount for the LG OLED models. Overall I love this purchase probably even more than my tv itself. Definitely worth the buy.

Great sound for the money and size.

doctorh 9/23/2017

We needed a sound solution for our console mounted OLED LG TV. Because of decorating and room considerations we did not want to go with a multi speaker system requiring floor or wall mounting. This low profile sound bar fits unobtrusively in front of the TV and doesnt interfere with any remote functions. It is easy to pair with the TV and syncs perfectly. The subwoofer is easy to place as it is connects wirelessly. The system greatly enhances our listening pleasure.
