LG SoundPlate LAB540


LG unleashes the first soundbase with a built-in Blu-ray deck

Stylish slimline design ; Generous features and sockets ; Generally entertaining sound

Disjointed bass and overpowering treble ; Expensive ; Limited catch-up TV apps

Best Soundbars and Soundbases.

LG LAB540 SoundPlate review


Big, powerful sound ; Blu-ray player built in ; Plenty of smart features ; Wi-fi and DLNA

Sound is unconvincing ; Needs better integration across frequency range

Plenty of exciting features here, but the sound quality isn’t up to standard

LG LAB540 soundbase review


A few years ago the idea of a speakerbase was just a twinkle in the eye of a Bose engineer. But since the American audio brand, with its Bose Solo TV, popularised the notion of a soundbar that sits under your TV, rather than in front of it, and...

Convenient convergence product; decent Smart hub and VOD features; sounds better than your telly; HDMI inputs

Minor operational niggles; average high-frequency performance; lack of integration between sub and soundbase; harsh sound at high volumes

LG LAB540 SoundPlate review


Has LG just killed-off the soundbar?

Wireless subwoofer ; Netflix & Amazon Instant apps ; Bluetooth music streaming ; Good quality bass, dialogue & music

Lacks catch-up TV apps ; No Magic Remote ; One HDMI input

LG hasn't skimped on the 3D Blu-ray player inside the SoundPlate. Sound quality is serious too, and it's plenty smart enough when it comes to apps. It would benefit from an extra HDMI input or two, and a few more UK-centric apps.

LG LAB540 Sound Plate review


Sound quality isn't brilliant, but the LAB540's built-in 3D Blu-ray player and extra Smart TV services add some extra value

For the best sound performance put in a BluRay disk - very satisfying...

An extra HDMI in port would have been useful!

LG SoundPlate LAB540


Good overall sound tidy, modern looking unit and a wireless sub system.

The lack of manual adjustment to the sound....can't alter bass and treble levels and only 3 presets to select.
