What customers say about "Key Specs"
LG SH7B 4.1 Channel 360W Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer (2016 Model)
  • This sound bar does NOT disappoint. I have the sub turned down to -2, and it still hits hard. I'm in a large open living room and this thing rocks.
  • I have it on Cinema, with is what everyone else seems to run it on, and just... wow. If you're on the fence at all, just pull the trigger. I promise you will not be disappointed.
  • Even at a low volume you can feel it , the sound is incredible , even better when paired with an lg tv.
  • Great sound for music and movies, and I never even have to turn the volume half way up. I thought about trying out a Yamaha one but this one looks way better.
  • Sound occasionally pops and crackles and volume seems to fade in and out.
Yamaha YAS-203 Sound Bar with Bluetooth and Wireless Subwoofer
  • The subwoofer has a separate volume control, so you can easily adjust the low frequency booming if you risk bothering the neighbors or sleeping kids.
  • Lower Range Base Frequencies are good and Clear Voice feature is also useful.
  • The frequency handled by the unit is really the normal bass sound.
  • No dedicated center channel, and no separate high frequency drivers.
  • Sub could be a bit more powerful (although it seems to be improving).
  • The subwoofer is not as powerful as my last system from Sony even at its highest setting but the sound is much better balanced and dialogue is better.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
LG SH7B 4.1 Channel 360W Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer (2016 Model)
  • First let me say this is a really nice looking soundbar, its pretty slim and has a nice design.
  • The sub woofer is really small about 1/3 the size of the Samsung, but seems to put out more bass.
  • Tthe bass is really good for such a small sub, watching an action movie shakes my living room.
  • The size fit perfectly in my room, the sound is just amazing, watching a movie as if I'm in a cinema.
  • it's very big, bigger than you think. ( If you want good audio it's going to be big, sorry.. physics.... small speakers just don't work as well as bigger ones *generally) all top tier sound bars are big.

LG SH7B 4.1 Channel 360W Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer (2016 Model)

  • The soundbar has recessed areas on the bottom for mounting on the supplied wall mount hardware, but i was pleased to discover that these recesses are perfectly sized.
  • You can adjust some of the different options from the app such at DRC or Night Mode.
  • Easy to set up, I'm using the optical port. It's sleek looking. And sounds great especially in the Cinema mode.
  • The full functionality of things like changing to cinema mode, switching between Bluetooth, wifi are limited to usI g the actual remote.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
LG SH7B 4.1 Channel 360W Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer (2016 Model)
  • Great the fact that it's connected to wifi all the time. Looks great on the wall.
  • Works great with all my apple products and the tv Bluetooth works great with my Bose quiet comfort 35 headphones... no issues so far.
  • I connected the bar to my Samsung TV (8 series, KS8500) with the HDMI ARC output from TV to the HDMI ARC on the soundbar and it works great.
  • Sound quality good, but really difficult to connect to my wifi (still haven't succeeded), and also could not get it to connect to Bluetooth.
  • I've tested bluetooth, optical, and wifi. I used optical for my connectivity. I had tried a Samsung soundbar using ARC HDMI and was annoyed because you couldn't watch tv and switch to bluetooth.
