LG HLB54S review

 

We question the fundamental claims of LG's Blu-ray soundbar

HDMI inuts ; Excellent Blu-ray and DVD icture quality

Thin, rasy sound ; Flaky media layback ; Awkward-shaed bar

Stuff magazine

 

This tidy system offers excellent Blu-ray images, but unfortunately sound quality isn't so impressive

Home cinema doesn't get much more convenient than this, but it can sound much better

Expert review by:

LG HLB54S review

 

Sound bars are the perfect accompaniment to a wall-mounted TV, and building a Blu-ray player into one keeps everything neat. As such, we're at a loss as to why this LG sound bar isn't designed for wall mounting, with a 195mm deep design that tapers...

Crisp, detailed sounds and plenty of inputs, but hardly any online features and it's not designed for wall mounting.

Home cinema doesn't get much more convenient than this, but it can sound much better

Excellent Blu-ray pictures; lovely looks and decent build; wireless subwoofer integrates nicely

Sounds brash when pushed; others offer better 'virtual' surround sound

First take: LG HLB54S

 

Although this Korean kit is a latecomer to the Blu-ray sound bar market, it's easily one of the best all-rounders available.

LG HLB54S review

 

Soundbars remain a decent punt for those lacking the space for a full-on set up, but still want that surround sound punch while indulging that action movie habit. And this LG HLB54S doesn't just provide speaker smarts, but also Blu-ray skills too. So...

Crammed with amazing features, great sound

Bulky, can't mount on the wall

About as good a soundbar as you can get, the LG HLB54S is well worth a punt

LG HLB54S Blu-ray Soundbar

 

The LG HLB54S is a home cinema soundbar with an integrated Blu-ray player. It features an HDMI output delivering 1080p HD video, plus two HDMI inputs and a USB port, and comes supplied with a separate subwoofer for bass reproduction.

Firstly, the LG HLB54S is a nice-looking slab of black plastic, with touch sensitive buttons and a large, clear LED display that shines through the front grille. There’s an impressive list of connections to back up that stylishness too: alongside the...

We’ve just mentioned that the LG HLB54S doesn’t replicate the true effect of having a room full of surround sound speakers, but we can’t be too critical, because this is an issue with every soundbar we’ve ever tested. If we turn our attention to the...

The specifications, styling and all-round strong performance make the LG HLB54S one of the best soundbars out there. True, it’s fairly pricey by LG’s standards, and can’t please your lugholes like a proper multi-speaker surround setup, but you get a...

It can even access your wireless home media network, if you have one! The sound is the weak point for me. If bose put one of these out with the same features, and their sonics, I would pay 3X what this cost.

Consumer review by:

LG HLB54S

 

I'm thrilled - I had the Samsung one for a day and it went faulty - upgraded to the LG and am loving it. CD's (remember those...?) sound amazing, blu-ray nearly knocked me out of the couch. get one.

loud as hell, looks awsome, easy setup

a little deeper (from front to back) than I'd like
