The '6830SW sports woven fiber woofer cones to help deliver clear and precise sound with minimal distortion. The system also comes with a wireless module to make hooking up your rear surround speakers easier. Instead of running wires from one end of the room to the other, simply plug in the included wireless module near the back of the room and connect your speakers from there.
The receiver's built-in Blu-ray player delivers a stunning high-definition picture that'll look great on your HDTV. It'll also deliver exciting 3D images to a compatible TV when you play 3D Blu-ray discs.

Powered home theater systems come with speakers and a subwoofer plus the amplification to drive them. Many of these systems feature low-profile consoles and ultra-compact speakers for minimal visual clutter. Some include a built-in Blu-ray/DVD player for enjoying movie and concert discs.
I am sending this back. The remote is not LG worthy. You push the button to turn it off and you have to wait for it to turn off. It may or may not turn off or on when the button is pushed. It took up to 15 seconds for the thing to shut down. There is not equalizer or sound tuning. I love bass but I like a good clean sound with the mids and highs. If you love a LOT of bass only, this one is for you. This is wireless for the rear speakers but you must have an outlet to plug the "router" into. The speakers then plug into the "router". I got this also because of the apps. I cannot believe they do not have Pandora available on this unit.
Pros: Attractive Unit, Netflix app
Cons: Remote is horrible and MAY work. Too much bass without mids and treble. NO PANDORA!
Love this system. I purchased this to replace an older Panasonic, 5 disc DVD surround sound system. This was definitely the perfect choice. Very easy to connect and even easier to use. Works great wth my iPhone. Great sound for music through the whole house. Looks nicer than I thought and fits well with my oak accent furniture and black entertainment center. I paired this with a new LG 3d TV and couldn't be happier. The abilities and ease the pair create makes this the perfect purchase
Pros: Easy to connect and use, great sound, wireless iPhone pairing and looks nice

Blu-ray Disc uses the Advanced Access Content System (AACS) to prevent unauthorized recording of copyrighted material.
