LG Electronics LG LAS355B 2 – Good quality sound but not perfect

Excellent sound for the money, plenty of volume without distortion and easy to configure. . Excellent sound for the money, plenty of volume without distortion and easy to configure. The first (which i knew about in advance) is that it wont fit under my lg 43uj630v 43 inch 4k ultra hd tv. All i did was to make a couple of small wooden blocks so that the front of the tv legs rest on the soundbar with the rear on the blocks, nice n simple. The second little hitch is that very occasionally the sound goes out of sync with the tv although this only seems to happen through an hdmi input. To rectify all i need to do usually is change the source and then back again which has corrected it 99% of the time, only once did i need to switch everything off. Overall i recommend this soundbar and think it is reasonably good value.

Volume did fluctuate initially but seems ok now.

Great soundbar without breaking the bank. I chose this soundbar as it is quite slim with the punch of a separate wired sub-woofer. The reason is that the fitted stand to my tv means the space between the tv stand and the screen is quite narrow. A couple of things i like:1. The little stands included that can be positioned anywhere along the length of the soundbar to raise it a little (10mm). This means that the soundbar clears the base of the tv so can be positioned better. I am sure there are better sounding soundbars than this but for what i paid (£79. Here are the specifications for the LG Electronics LG LAS355B 2:

Such a difference well worth the money a realy good buy. . First sound bar i have and it makes such a difference well worth the money a realy good buy.

I’ve been very impressed with the quality of this product and would recommend it to anyone, easy set up with automatic switching off once the source is not available, my echo dot will even turn it on when it is told to search for speaker. The bar comes on and connects to the dot. So all in all i have to say that i’m very happy with it.

Brilliant sound, great value. Wakes up with the tv coming on, goes to sleep when the tv goes off and most importantly, great sound clarity. Connected to samsung 48′ curved tv via optical cable.

  1. This is an excellent soundbar and sub woofer for the money. Connects perfectly with an lg tv, my tv remote and sky remote can both control the volume and the separate sound bar remote can be used to select preset profiles for cinema, music, voice etc. Wired connection between the main unit and sub works well for my needs but for some it may not.

    Good value sound bar with a reasonable sound quality -. Good value sound bar with a reasonable sound quality – i use it on my pc through an optical lead. The sub provides a small amount of extra bass, but it is not over the top.

    When the sound bar arrived the subwoofer didn’t work at all. Amazon sent out a replacement immediately – subwoofer works. Rather inconvenient having to send such a large item back, but amazon have now refunded the £16. 40 postage (they refund up to £20 of postage if the item is defective – phew) i’ve got two sound bars at home now and this lg one is definitely superior. Fantastic, deep and rich sound.

    1. When i first fired up this soundbar i was disappointed because it sounded muddy. When i first fired up this soundbar i was disappointed because it sounded muddy, particularly in the upper bass and it proved difficult to get a decent bass without rumble in the wrong place. It didn’t seem much of an improvement on the tv internal speakers. Then i remembered a trick from my hi-fi days and placed the subwoofer on acoustic cones (if you haven’t heard of these, ask your local hi-fi dealer) on a hard surface. I use a 3 cone configuration which is the stablest setup. This has the double benefit of stopping the bass from going through the floor to anyone underneath and also of thrusting the full bass into the room. The sound tightened up across the whole spectrum and even using it to listen to music is very acceptable, although of course no substitute for a true hi-fi system. Screw-in spikes might be another solution but the beauty of the cones is that they don’t have to be screwed in. I have been using ribbon speakers for the last couple of decades which don’t need these precautions so forgot i had them lying around.

    Ummed and ahhhed for weeks over what sound bar to purchase as the quality of sound from our tv was extremely poor. Easy to set up, did need to go out and purchase an optical cable, but it was definitely worth it. The sound is brilliant, especially when connecting my phone through bluetooth turning up the media volume on my handset and the sound on the remote, can hear it clearly through the whole house.

    1. Excellent sound bar & subwoofer. Sound on our samsung 40″ tv was kind of rubbish. Not now – all changed with this soundbar & subwoofer – what a difference.Came in a rather large box, but the width of the soundbar (about a metre) and the depth of the woofer mean it’s necessary. Buy an optical cable separately – it’s not included. Easy to connect – the optical connecting ‘socket’ is kind of hidden behind a plastic ‘plug’: just push hard. Connecting the subwoofer is slightly fiddly because the ‘push buttons’ that clamp onto the wires are on the ‘wrong’ side [for my fat fingers]. Managed it ok, though, and slim-fingered people should have no problem. Looks good in front of our tv – it has a digital readout so you can see which ‘mode’, etc you’ve chosen.
