    LG SJ8 reviews

    SJ8 300W 2.1-Channel Soundbar System is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Acceptable Sound Upgrade As A Freebie. This was included in a no-cost bundle with an LG OLED TV. As a freebie, it is an acceptable upgrade over the very good sound provided by the TV. Had I paid for this, it would be returned. I connected the TV and bar with the included optical cable. The problem is that that sound provided by the bar is very muddy. I tuned the system to provide acceptable clarity by maximizing the treble setting and minimizing the bass setting. The wireless sub has a separate setting. No issues with setup or operation.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't buy but if you get as a combo be careful if you buy. Frustrating as heck. No documentation and not intuitive. There are synchronization issues when using the tv sound with the sound bar that I need to look into and may find a solution. I don't like that it's IP settings are not configurable as far as I can tell (I don't like DHCP over wireless for security reasons). The light in the middle I did find a way to make disappear, I couldn't tell you because I stumbled upon it. LG, this is really subpar especially when used with your newest OLED TVs, do you plan a recall or a free replacement to SJ9? I bought something to work. You can't sell these for more than $200 now because everyone is dumping this. I bought this TV combo because of all it's parts including a good sound bar. It's as if they stuffed the channel with this bad product combo. Another isssue is that the sound bar was suppose to come with another bracket that also served as a TV stand so you don't have to drill holes. Overall, time will tell, but it's going to take me a lot of time getting this right, if I can. This is the first LG product that I've bought that is completely Subpar.
