While today's ultra-slim flat-panel TVs offer a feast for the eyes, your ears may tell you different. That's because the tiny speakers built into most TVs usually can't keep up with the soundtrack when you're streaming the latest installment of your favorite zombie action series or playing your favorite superhero movie on Blu-ray. The LG NB4530B solves that problem neatly and simply. This slim sound bar system takes over your TV's audio duties, using a total of 310 watts of amplification to bring movies, TV shows, and Blu-ray concerts 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.
You can hook up the sound bar to your TV using a digital HDMI A/V cable. If you've got an LG TV, using that type of connection means you'll also be able to use the TV's remote to operate the sound bar. Or you can hook up the sound bar to older TVs using optical digital or analog minijack connections.
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 NB4530B'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.

Wireless Powered Sub: The wireless powered sub houses a 6" side-firing woofer inside a bass-reflex cabinet with a rear-firing port. The 6" woofer is powered by a built-in 150-watt amplifier for deep, punchy bass. You can independently adjust the volume level of the powered subwoofer. Since the powered sub is wireless, there are no cable connections and the sub can be placed anywhere in your listening room.
HDMI Input/Output (w/ ARC): The LG NB4530B soundbar speaker system is fitted with a single HDMI input to directly connect your Blu-ray player or satellite/cable box. The speaker system also features a HDMI output to connect to your TV's HDMI input for audio/video transfer. The system's HDMI output supports Audio Return Channel (ARC), which sends the TV sound back to the soundbar; your TV's HDMI input must also support ARC. The HDMI (v1.4) jacks supports Dolby Digital/DTS/PCM audio signals and 480p/720p/1080i/1080p video signals.

A/V Sync (Audio Delay): When receiving audio signal from your TV, sound and images may not be matched. In this case, the AV Sync function lets you adjust the audio delay time between 0 and 300m/sec.

Bluetooth Technology: The LG NB4530B soundbar speaker system features built-in Bluetooth for wireless audio streaming and LG's new Sound Sync wireless TV connection.

The soundbar speaker system supports playback of MP3/WMA files stored on a compatible USB memory device. The unit provides basic playback functions (Play/Pause, Stop, Fast Forward/Rewind, Skip Track/Folder, & Repeat/Random) over your MP3/WMA music files. The USB port (5V/500mA) will also charge the battery of your USB device.
Note: The unit's USB port cannot recognize external HDDs, Card readers, USB hubs, or computers.
Remote Control: The LG NB4530B includes an IR remote control for wireless operation of the soundbar system. The remote is pre-programmed to control basic functions (Power On/Off, Volume Up/Down, AV Input, Channel Up/Down, & Mute) of select LG flat-panel TVS, and can be programmed to control other manufacture televisions ( Zenith, GoldStar, Samsung, Sony, Hitachi).
SIMPLINK: Some functions of this system can be controlled by your LG TV's remote control when this unit and your LG SIMPLINK compatible TV are connected through a HDMI connection. The NB4530B system can also be set to automatically power On/Off with your LG SIMPLINK compatible TV.
Note: To operate SIMPLINK, an HDMI cable over Version 1.3 with CEC function should be used. This system may work with devices with HDMI-CEC support, but only devices with the "SIMPLINK" logo are fully supported.

Auto Power Off: The unit automatically turns off if it does not sense and audio signal and control command for approximately 25 minutes.
Mounting Options: The LG NB4530B's soundbar speaker can be either be table-top or wall mounted. The LG soundbar speaker can simply be placed on a table, shelf, or stand thanks to its pre-installed pedestal base. An additional pedestal base is included which slightly lowers the height of the speaker by 0.25". The supplied wall-mount bracket gives you the option of mounting the speaker on your wall (the pedestal base should be removed when wall-mounting speaker). The soundbar speaker can be centered above or below your TV.
