LG SoundPlate LAP340

 

The LG SoundPlate LAP340 is a cleverly designed but unfortunately soft-spoken soundbar speaker alternative for your HDTV.

Slim, stealthy design. Wireless connectivity for mobile devices and certain LG HDTVs

Sounds underpowered compared with conventional soundbars. No analog audio inputs

Slab-shaped speaker systems are beginning to pick up steam as an alternative to soundbars. Instead of a bar of speakers to place in front of your HDTV, you place a whole, thin block of speakers under your HDTV. This makes the sound system even less...

LG Sound Plate LAP340 review

 

In the wide world of compact home theater solutions, the latest and most succinct design comes in the form of the sound platform (or plate, or pad, or pancake, etc.). These new ultra-slim devices take the simplicity of sound bars a step further,...

Detailed, clear upper register ; Wide sound field ; Powerful sound for the size ; Extremely convenient design

Interface is too minimalist ; Balance issues, especially for music playback ; No EQ or tone controls

The SoundPlate’s diminutive size, tempered bass and accurate upper register provides those with less space - and close neighbors - a convenient way to improve their anemic TV audio.

LG SoundPlate LAP340

 

LG serves up sumptuous sound on its SoundPlate, an under-TV 4.1 speaker base

Powerful sound, Excellent build quality, Slim bodywork

Limited inputs, Expensive, Occasionally sounds wild when pushed

LG LAP340 SoundPlate

 

Despite improvements to the updated sample, this LG soundbase still can't match the performance of its rivals

Slender build ; Easy to use ; Good remote control

Disappointing sound with little rhythm or insight ; Unwieldy bass and bright, coarse treble ; Lacks cohesion ; Limited connectivity and features ; Pricey

While there are some improvements from the original sample we reviewed, we’re still not convinced with the LG LAP340’s performance.

LG SoundPlate LAP340

 

The LG SoundPlate LAP340 is a cleverly designed but unfortunately soft-spoken soundbar speaker alternative for your HDTV.

LG doesn’t list the SoundPlate’s individual drivers, but it dedicates 20 watts each to the four front and surround left/right channels and another 40 watts to the built-in twin subwoofers, for a total power rating of 120 watts. This is pretty anemic,...

LG’s SoundPlate reviewed

 

LG's way of making a soundbar disappear into the furniture is definitely an interesting idea, and people who want more than what their TV sound can offer will surely be intrigued by the idea LG is offering here.

Clean design, Sits under the TV making it hard to see, Supports Bluetooth

Only supports TVs up to 55in, Subwoofer cannot be controlled at all, Sound can be a little hollow, No screen means there's no indicator as to how loud your volume is, Only one form of wired connection, Expensive

LG is a joke

 

none

Had a question about soundplate and have been calling LG for over a month and yet to have anyone that could answer any question or even a person I could understand what they were saying, this is not a joke but over 10 calls and still nothing, will shop...

LG LAP340

 

I do not recommend this unit to anyone.

Cheap, easy hook-up

Should be compatible with my LG TV, but it won't sync. Sound is muddy. Remote response is zero to uneven. It seems confused at input except sound off and power down. Unlike my LG TV to which it is optically connected, the volume is set by the...

Great but.....

 

I do like the sound bar the drawbacks are too much bass and it vibrates a lot and it's very hard to turn up and downs but overall it's a very good product

Great Sound and Easy to setup

 

The Soundplate was installed / setup in minutes and sounds great. It is the perfect size (low profile) and I could not be happier
