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.

LG SJ8 Sound Bar review


A 4.1 soundbar packed with features you may or may not need

Simple setup ; Good sound after some tweaks ; Slim design with small subwoofer

Annoying always-on LED display ; Sound lacks detail ; Mediocre music playback

The LG SJ8 is a feature-packed soundbar that adds loads of excitement when watching movies, though music playback left something to be desired. For the price, the LG SJ8 is a good choice but cheaper soundbars - like the Samsung HW-MS650 - manage to...

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’s super-slim soundbar and compact sub deliver big home cinema thrills – but rival bars are easier on the ear.

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...

LG SJ8 review

  (Rating Hidden)

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...

LG S8 Soundbar


Purchased Soundbar and custom mount ( from John Lewis ) to go with an LG OLED TV. The LG S8 is stylish looking,compact and blends in well to look part of the TV rather than an add on soundbar. Very little instructions in the box but the online manual...

SJ8, Great Value For Money


This was half of the price of the SJ9 and could not tell the difference in the sound quality.

Perfect sound


I have set up and owned this LG sj8 for a few weeks now. I must say from moving on from a Philips HTL5140 the new technology is unreal. Music and soundtracks you can hear thing I've never heard before. Only gripe I have with it is sometimes voices can...

LG Sound bar


Works well sounds great with plenty of base content The most time consuming part was mounting it on the wall, and hiding the cables in the wall. I like the ability to play tunes from my phone via bluetooth without any cable connections, and turns on /...
