Nice product SL5Y

T SCOTT 9/18/2019

I bought the SL5Y on 9/14/19 from local best buy. Nice surround bar but not plenty features to adjust the treble and Bass. Both only goes to five. I normally keep it on the Bass feature also. Feels more surround to me than ASC Stand DTC and LGTV. Bass feature sounds good and you can hear the base. In order to get the full surround though you must purchase the LG Surround Kit. To me the bar nor subwoofer wasnt quite cutting it for me. The kit must be purchased with it also to give u that surround sound feel behind your head. The kit come with two LG speakers and a modem to sync it to your LG SL5Y bar. It made a world of a difference. They want you to purchase the product but dont tell you everything you need to purchase with it. It was simple to sync the SL5Y bar sub and kit all together to my 70inch LG TV. If you have a LG TV its a must you go into your settings then sound and check the audio/opt feature. I gave this a hard three because they dont tell you about the Surround sound Kit.

perry0215 8/12/2019

Have owned for approx 3 weeks. Have owned Samsung and Vizio sound bars and the sound of this 2.1 400 Watt LG sound system blows them away. The sound is stunningly magnificent. Easy peasy set up that even a 62 year old can do.

Good sound no Protection

Dayzee77 8/1/2019

The system has a great sound for a 13 x 13 sq ft room. The only problem I have is that the Bluetooth is not protected. So pretty much anyone that would like to use it can. Other than that I wouldve given it 5 stars

Perfect

EMCG 7/31/2019

I have a small living room and a 43 LG Smart TV. I didnt need a 5 channel Surround system that would be overkill for a room this size. I saw this LG sound bar in the store and it was perfect. Very easy to set up 10 minutes. Sound is so much better than the TV speakers.

Glad I picked this one

Trent729 7/2/2019

I was looking for a soundbar to go with my lg 4k TV and obviously the best choice was a LG soundbar. I was choosing between this one the sk5y and sk6y. Also some other lg bars but Im so glad I chose this one. It hits hard with the bass. I have it set up in a decent sized bedroom and it shakes everything and i never turned it up half way yet. Just the soundbar alone has amazing bass which you wouldnt expect from a soundbar. Its amazing the music flow app adds a little bit more options than the remote. But you can do most of the settings from the remote. Nothing feels cheap about this soundbar The best part is I can still add more wireless speakers with the extra wireless speaker kit LG sells.

Sounds Great set up is unbelievable easy

Mossleif 5/23/2019

I bought this and just set it up. Bluetooth pairing was a breeze set up was easy. The rear speaker was paired with the sound bar as soon as it was on and provided great base. It came with a good remote that was easy to use. The great thing is that once I plugged in the soundbar to the TV via optical the TV remote was then able to control the soundbar. That was amazing. I listened to music TV and movies and they all sounded great admittedly though I am not an audiophile and the volume could easily go loud without any distortion and fill up a 20x20 room. It is well made sturdy and looks sleek with a good lcd display that shows the setting/ volune.Great choice and I am very happy with the sound and the incredible ease of set up both better than my Bose soundbar.
