We are truly enjoying the soundbar, it was a purchase with a LG TV and what a difference, with the whole experience. We are very happy with LG. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Overall this is a nice sound bar, but I get a lot of popping and vibration from the subwoofer. I have to unplug it and leave it for a while and then plug it back in later but it’s very annoying. I tell my wife all the time I really regret this purchase
Always crisp clear sound, at any level. On my move cross country I put the soundbar on the dash of the van, soon in the back, ran an inverter; makes a great car stereo.. Lemme tell ya!
Our only problem is when grandchildren are watching cartoons and the next cartoon starts only the background music is heard (no voices) and we need to reset the soundbar. No other issues. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
LG and Samsung are both know in the TV world for their great TVs, and both seem to be the top ones with very good models that each shine in their own way.
They've also over the years have been working on ways to make their audio systems sound better and better, with Samsung going as far as saying they want to compete with Bowers and Wilkins, and LG has been collaboratimg with Hi-Fi specialists as far as 2008.
For a $400 sound bar, the LG SH7B has a few more features than most in it's price class, one of them being multiroom streaming, powerful bluetooth and an HDMI input. You also have the choice later on in buying wireless rear speakers to work with the LG sound bar to really get the home theater set up. The SH7B blew me away with it's perfect blend between the sound bar and the wireless sub. As most sound bars, it's great with movies however the LG did a great job when it came to streaming music from my phone. I also wasn't kind to it when I first got it, as I cranked it up during the Batman V Superman Doomsday fight scene. I heard every punch, scream and explosions as if I was there in all that mayhem. There isn't many sound bars on the market in this price range that can take this kind of abuse or have this much home theater muscle. I also for fun put on Titanic, and I wanted to see how well it took the violins and classic music while also having rushing water and screaming in the back ground. The LG did a fine job at displaying this kind of movie as well.
I also need to point out that the LG SH7B doesn't stick out as much in the living room, it's at most 42" wide and 2" high so it's not bulky and doesn't have that cloth cover that some sound bars have that I hate. The subwoofer was a little small, and I was a little worried that it wouldn't give me a powerful bass. That was not the case, and it still packed a lot of bass.
The sound bar offers more than one way to hook up, it has an HDMI in and out, bluetooth, 3.5mm input, plush is has ethernet input with built in wifi for streaming. You can stream from services like iHeartRadio, TuneIn, Spotify, Rhapsody, Pandora and Google Play Music.
I have the sound bar paired with the 55" OLED HDTV. Gorgeous picture and good sound. The native speakers of the TV are deplorable - so the sound bar is a must. A nightmare of interface issues when I used the HDMI ARC connection (loss of sound on channel change, sometimes surround only with no dialog audio, sometimes back to program from commercial dropped out the sound bar all together). All issues resolved by simply changing from HDMI to optical.
I love it it sound amazing you can't go wrong with lg it is one of the best products around
