LG SJ8 Review


The LG SJ8 has all the newest connections and sound modes, and its slim design and wireless subwoofer make it easy to integrate into your current setup. If you want a future-proof sound bar and enjoy watching action movies in surround sound, this is a...

This sound bar has the best surround sound simulation in our test group.

Its subwoofer is weak compared to the best models we tested.

The LG SJ8 is a great sound bar if you have a small entertainment room and enjoy watching action movies in surround sound.

If you like your soundbars to be heard but not seen then you're going to love the SJ8. At a mere 38mm high, LG's new 4.1-channel soundbar is so slim and discreet that you'll hardly notice it's there, which is great news if you want powerful sound with...

LG SJ8 review: The ultra-slim soundbar that packs a powerful punch


A slim soundbar that punches above its weight but it's sonically flawed

Big sound ; Ultra-slim, discreet design ; Powerful sound, plenty of volume

Overblown bass ; Only one HDMI input ; No support for Apple AirPlay

The big question is that, with such stiff competition from Samsung’s MS650 at precisely this price, does the LG SJ8 do enough? I’d argue not. Although it’s sleek, slim and attractive, and the Google Cast facility does work well, its flawed sonic...

It's a hefty sum to spend on a sound bar, but the LG SJ8 has all the hallmarks of a top-notch product. Sleekly styled with a range of connectivity options, it promises a touch of quality that others cannot. But it all comes down to sound - can this...

Sound bar for 4K tv


I bought this sound bar as part of a large purchase which include LG 4 K tv and blue ray dvd. Set up was very easy and the sound bar interstates well with the tv and DVD player. Very impressed with the sound. This was a good purchase.

Great Soundbar


Bought this to match my LG B7 OLED TV which is great as this soundbar replaces the TV stand. Improves the sound of TV and the subwoofer really helps too. Would recommend this if u have an LG TV as its a great match

So far, so good


Although clearly designed for a 55” TV, this sits very nicely under the 49” LG TV I purchased at the same time. as with all modern technology it takes some time to work out the best settings for various things I watch and listen to. I love the way I...

Perfect sound


I bought this to go along with my 65" LG TV. I have the sound bar stand adapter so the bar is the TV stand. The quality of the sound is brilliant and makes for a cinema like experience. 10 / 10
