Ok sound but wireless connection died in a year.

MilwaukeeMike 10/8/2021

The sound is decent for the price. The subwoofer is a little underpowered for my taste but good enough to not make me run out and buy something better. Again for the price pretty solid buy. The reason its a 2-star review is because the wireless connection between the sound bar and the subwoofer died in less than a year. Nothing I did including hard resets of the pairing could get it to reconnect. LGs tech support number was hard to reach busy signal all the time. I had better luck with their online tech support chat/text window. They walked me through the hard reset but no luck. In the end had to send it in for repair still out for repair now so I dont know if they will be able to fix it. At least I was still within the warranty period and the return shipping was free.

Sub unit failed in less than a year.

Another Wags 6/4/2021

Purchased less than a year ago for our basement entertainment center to pair with our LG TV. Unit did not get that much use however. The sound was great while it lasted. After less than a year the sub unit all of a sudden will not power on. Warranty claim is still in process awaiting arrival of packaging so I can return the ENTIRE product sound bar sub for service/replacement.

Could be louder but great quality

squarky 4/27/2021

Im old school from the 60s 70s when power ruled the day with stereo receivers at 100+ watts per channel 4 channels and 0.05 harmonic distortion records only with tapes PRE CD so maybe was expecting to much. Still though was surprised at the clarity of the sound and it wasnt weak just not room shaking..then again Im 76 years old and dont hear as well probably the reason as back then. It DOES enhance the tv sound which coming from a 7 month old LG 43 inch flat screen smart tv sounded pretty good o start but now has decent bass Time will tell as to longevity.

Yeye21 4/21/2021

I bought the sound bar in November 2020 it was easy to sync with my LG TV sound is very good and perfect for what I need. On March 2021 only 4 months after the purchase I sent it back for warranty the subwoofer keeps disconnecting from the sound bar. I havent received it yet let see what happens.

Very Disappointing

hevis1 4/4/2021

LG SN5Y soundbar was a Amazon purchase to use with my LG 47LS4500 television. Followed instructions and connected soundbar using the optical cable from my tv to the soundbar. Soundbar would work for a little while and then sound would turn off and soundbar would become unresponsive to the remote control. Only fix was to disconnect power supply from soundbar wait 30 seconds and reconnect power supply. Received little help from LG so I returned the soundbar for a refund.

Poor instructions

David418 4/2/2021

I have significant hearing loss. My first LG sound bar made a huge difference. That on is in my TV room and still work great. I decided to add one to my living room tv. The new one was simple to install but came with an abbreviated manual. Very hard to understand and I have not been able to adjust the sound properly. I went online for the complete manual and it was not available. I called and spoke to a rep who tried to email the manual but then advised it wasnt available in pdf. Im still waiting weeks later for a hard copy he promised to mail. This poor support is just unacceptable.

Sub-woofer sound had distorted sound. Tech service advice did not help. Return policy is complicated requiring boxing both sound bar and sub-woofer and returning to a California address.

Great sound from a very inexpensive sound system

elcorbs 1/3/2021

Really nice sound from a not so expensive sound bar. It produces good bass and the sound bar fires sound right at me so I can hear even though I have issues with my hearing. We love the system and the fact that we didnt have to spend a fortune on it to have a great sounding system.
