Great sound, when the audio doesn't cut out...


Purchased this item in November 2013 on sale for $550 (a steal in my opinion), and within a couple months the audio would cut out about 5 seconds after powering it on. If I reset the receiver, it would work then but who wants to have to do this 3 out...

Sound cuts out, unit has frozen a couple times, back speakers pop from national commercials to local ones

Easy to set up, high quality wiring, good sound


The LG sound system has higher grade speaker wiring than my Samson surround system which can only convert DVD/ Blu-ray movies to 3D. This particular LG surround sound system can covert any 2D to 3D -my main reason for buying a second surround...

Issues after two months


Within the last two days, my surround sound has started cutting out. The audio cuts out completely about every 10-15 minutes. The only way to get the audio back is to turn the LG receiver off then turn it back on.This LG unit is an upgrade from a 15...

So Far So Good


I had to replace my TV and as a result my 15 year old Bose system just couldn't keep up with the smart TV and I had a horrible echo when running it. I went round and round trying to find the right unit for my needs. I really wanted a system with the...

Not a good buy unless you like getting up a lot


I recently purchased this LG system an it really sucks, I always have to get up to reset/unplug the unit. It freezes on me. I would not recommend this product. I'm not gonna lie it looks really nice, if only lg could fix this problem. Maybe recall this...

Complete rubbish


I've never owned an LG product before so I took a chance on this system for all its features vs price. The first one I had to take back because after the update the unit completely froze, not even unplugging would bring it out of its coma. The second...

I guess I got the broken one


I wanted this system very much. It looked like top-of-the-line stuff. When I got it home and started using it-I hated it. It needed a download for updates (expected) but ever since that it would not shut off. If it did, then it would hang up on start...
