From Blu-ray movies, to cable shows, to programs you stream via the Internet — whatever you watch on your TV, a neat-looking and easy-to-install sound bar like the LG NB3530A will make your viewing experience more fun and engrossing. This slim sound bar system takes over your TV's audio duties, using a total of 300 watts of amplification to bring movie and TV soundtracks to life. The included subwoofer adds punchy bass, and its wireless design is a helpful touch — that means you can place it anywhere in your viewing room within reach of an AC power outlet.
The sound bar connects to your TV by way of an optical digital input. You get two of those, so that means you can connect another source, too, like a Blu-ray player.
If you're like most folks these days, you probably have a smartphone or tablet that you use from time to time for music. Whether you download tunes to your device, or stream them from the Internet using a cloud-based service like MOG, Spotify®, or Pandora® Internet radio, the NB3530A's built-in Bluetooth means you can pair your device for convenient wireless music playback.
Add big sound to your TV without a roomful of speakers. Sound bars require minimal space and wiring, and their sleek designs complement today's flat-panel TVs. Most sound bars have their own built-in amplification, so you won't need to use a home theater receiver. Some models use advanced surround processing and carefully aimed speaker drivers to simulate the effects of a full home theater audio system.
This is a great unit. The sound is amazing with the optical digital hook-up. I use it with the supplied so I don't it it works with a universal remote.
For the price, you can not go wrong. Good product very good sound.
Pros: Good sound for the price
Cons: No RCA jacks on the bar. Must use a light cable, (my TV does not have an output light cable) or a MP3 player type of ear jack.
So far so good. Really like the product. Continue to be impressed with LG products. Wireless woofer and Bluetooth makes this product. They just need to expand TV remote control codes. Cruthfield selection and quick shipment make it a no brainer.
Cons: Expand TV remote control codes
Very nice unit, extremely simple to setup. This system sounds great, I couldn't be happier.
Pros: Simple to use and sound wonderful.
Cons: None for me.
This LG soundbar was easy to install w/ the enclosed template and sounds way better than the original speakers on my LG 50". Bluetooth works good from our phones. The bass can really pump form the sub when I put it in a corner between couches. Super fast and free shipping to Alaska.
Pros: good sound, lots of bass if you like that
Cons: none yet
Very pleased with the LG sound bar. Product was shipped and received as sales person indicated within 2 days. The LG sound bar has enhanced the sound quality to my flat screen TV and the best part is that there are no visible wires. I would recommend this product.
Pros: Very easy to install and no visible wires
