Question – lateral speakers not playing sound. Hi, just bought this and the sound is great. However, the lateral speakers do not seem to work, i hear nothing although i played from tv, dvd, youtube etc. . Only frontal speakers play sound but not the lateral ones, is this normal?. Can anyone help me with this?.

Excellent sound bar – a little twitchy when connecting wirelessly to my lg tv. I now use an optical cable and it is brilliant. Very easy to set up and paired instantly with my iphone.

What a great looking bit of kit. The soundbar is one of the best lookiing i have seen and blends in so well with the tv. The wireless sub woofer is hidden away nicely without any loss in sound quality. Bought to supplement the dreadful sound of my lg flat screen tv it has exceeded my expectations. East to install and it syncs effortlessly with my lg tv and blu ray. Sound quality is very good, bass excellent and even music much better than i thought it would be. What a huge improvement on the basic tv audio. The only small negative is the limited range of the bluetooth faciliity. Here are the specifications for the LG Electronics LG NB4540A 320W 4:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • 4.1 Ch 320W Surround Sound
  • BluetoothTM – Wirelessly stream your favourite music
  • 3D Surround Processor – Experience 3D sound through LGs unique Cinema sound calibration technology

Great product easy to connect amazing sound loud deep and plenty of bass from the sub woofer. Really slim and unobtrusive. Bluetooth music from my iphone as good if not better than an audio speaker system.

Nice effects while watching movies gives it an extra dimension.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Looks and sounds great BUT mine is Another faulty soundbar
  • Great sounding slim beauty
  • Would be great after the connectivity issues are sorted

I have been looking for a decent sound bar for my lg tv for some time now. I have read countless reviews on some of the cheaper and some of the more expensive models, and almost gave up with the amount of conflicting views on these devices. When it came to it i decided that the sound quality from the tv was just about as poor as you can get, – it’s fine for normal tv etc, but i have a nas that has my music on one of the drives and playing this just through the tv was very bad. I bit the bullet and opted for this 320 w soundbar, due to the inclusion of the bluetooth which would be very handy to have. All in all i am 100% impressed with the quality and range of the sound generated by this device. I only really get to put it through it’s paces when my wife goes out as she complains that the base is shaking the neighbours house down let alone ours. This was a very easy bit of kit to setup and the functions on the remote work easily and well. Pairing with various bluetooth devices is also easy and although i get the occasional drop in signal i don’t know if this is due to the network, the tv or the myriad of electronic devices in out house. All in all i’m very impressed.

A great purchase, arrived on time easy set up with optical cable, the bluetooth base auto connection. The sound was better than expected amazing . Films, music adds a whole new dimension for the listener .

Would be great after the connectivity issues are sorted. Weve had ours almost 2 years however after 1 year the bluetooth kept dropping out (too late for the guarantee funny that)now it drops out every 10 mins, very frustrating, the connectivity with other bluetooth devices is fine but the sub drops out even after pressing the pairing button on the back there is also an annoying bright display on the front which would be better if it timed out and went off after a while but doesn’t so annoying when you want to watch a film in the dark and you just have a bright display stating ‘optical’ all the time so we’ve taken to covering it. I don’t think i’d choose another bluetooth sub again.

Easy setup and quality sound. Our lg tv is located in a very large living space. It was very hard to hear the tv even when we turned up the volume. I ordered the lg soundbar and it arrived quickly. It took me all of 5 minutes to set it up, and the sound is really good. Easy setup and quality sound.

I was looking for a powerful and stylish soundbar to go with my 55in lgtv. Its slim and very powerful it looks great on my glass entertainment center. I would recommend this soundbar.

I never give five stars, but i just have to now. I bought my soundbar from electricalsuk and took a leap of faith with the used/returned/unsold. Lo and behold the soundbar is in perfect condition besides some very tiny marks on the bottom of the socket area and it works perfectly. It also came the next day, very early considering the shippingnow onto the product. This was meant to be an upgrade from the lg nb2540a and it completely blows it out of the water with technical performance and my god it looks so good. Everything is clear and balanced with a long range, and the wireless subwoofer is very powerful, with adjustable levels of course (subwoofer button and volume buttons). It instantly connects when you turn the soundbar on so no worry there. Also the soundbar itself has display text in it’s centre, a nice point over my last one. Voices sound natural and crisp, and sound fx in video ganes for example work seamlessly with the rest of the audio, either way there are ‘sound effect’ settings to change that too. You can use optical, hdmi (in and out sockets), usb (like a flash drive), lg sound sync, auxillary (portable), or bluetooth for connectivity. Just make sure to keep your device away from potential interference. Some fare better than others (my playstation vita has never dropped out) but a a charger that had finished up, created a lot of interference for my yoga 2 pro. All in all i couldn’t be happier.

Does what it says on the box very well. . Great sound and pairs up with an lg 4k tv without issues, recommended. I would like to add that it did need to go in for repair but was under warranty and that was sorted without issues.

Great value, minor problems. Bought this from curry’s (uk) for £200it looks excellent. Sleek and metallic, the slim nature of the bar and the matching brushed metal style of the (admittedly rather large) wireless subwoofer match the 49inch lg 4k tv i have perfectly. It’s only 84(ish)cm long so it’s probably around the same length as most 40inch tvs. Sound-wise i was originally only slightly impressed. I hooked the tv up via the lg wireless soundsync option and, on the “standard” sound preset it was fine, albeit lacking in the midrange. Switching to “cinema” mode (which most reviews say is the best option) was pretty terrible. Balance was all over the place with most voices completely drowned out by anything else onscreen. The sound would also occasionally drop out for no apparent reason. Turns out it was just down to the wireless soundsync (which is based on bluetooth).

Transforms your sound to a much higher standard. . This is an awesome piece of kit. Love the tv but like most modern slim smart sets, the sound is flat and hollow. Made specifically to pair up wirelessly with most new lg tvs, this sound bar and floor standing woofer totally transforms the sound into a rich, deep and full experience with excellent sterio replication. I am certainly more than impressed. One point, if you have other wifi transmitters nearby (internet router for example) they may interfere with the connection. I had to move my router as the sound kept breaking down – not a fault of the soundbar methinks but the wireless systems that abound nowadays. Otherwise it’s a great piece of gear that improves the sound quality really impressively and is well worth the money.

Great sound, annoying display (for me). Sounds great, not as good as a true surround system but i didn’t expect that and it gets a lot closer to it than i thought it would. Hint: if you don’t need the speaker to brightly announce that it is turned on with the text ‘lg opt’ (or similar) at all times, you should press the ‘sleep’ button on the remote once. I then recommend turning off the auto-switch off function by pressing the ‘auto power’ button, as this setting will be lost every time the unit powers on. For me this defeats the purpose of having the unit automatically turn on and off with the tv. Your views may vary, i personally prefer my speakers (and all my av equipment) to have as few lights as possible, and who wants an extra remote solely to push the same single button once per viewing session. Out of the candidates for purchase, i chose this model to go with my existing lg tv. However, the lg->lg optical link seems to offer me nothing over connecting to a soundbar from any other manufacturer. Current soundbars are unlikely to perform as well as multiple well-placed speakers, but you can save a lot on space and wiring. This product sounds good enough for me to put my six-speaker + amplifier system on ebay and get that space in my living room back, but every now and then i do wish i’d chosen one that remembered my settings.

Cannot believe the sound from this, for the size of the speaker.

Makes huge difference to quality of sound from a 47″. Makes huge difference to quality of sound from a 47″ lg telly. The bluetooth / wifi connection makes it seamless to use and link with the telly, works with sky remote, magic remote etc and certainly a lot more convienent than a seperate / non lg unit.

Orbitsound M9 Wireless Soundbar, display so a little more difficult to adjust Overall excellent sound

Connects and sets up so easily and the enhancement in sound is fantastic. Environment the soundbar to standby also sets the bluetooth sub-woofer to standby and turning off the power means the settings are saved so no deciding upon the input and volume all over again. Distant is smaller but …
