Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Lg Sound bar

BrenP 6/3/2022

We have used it about a month considering we have used a full surround system for many years we are happy satisfied w this sound bar. We would recommend it. Could not find a suitable solution to our receiver. Not disappointed. It was on sale for a reasonable amount too. A great bargain for the price.

Good soundbar with nice features for the price

Shultzbs 4/25/2022

LG SLM6Y 3.1 CHANNEL 420W SOUND BAR. HIGH RESOLUTION AUDIO for both voice and music is great. Voices are not washed out. Dialog is crisp. Especially watching news live broadcast. No loud commercials with.the Auto Volume Leveler. Everthing stays at the same loudness. Music is good as well and when you want a little more Bass theres a setting for that Bass Blast. Music streaming is easy as well with Bluetooth. The Bluetooth range is decent. The DTS VIRTUAL X produces a decent movie experience. It is not true surround sound however it does a pretty good job producing virtual surround fron just the sound-bar by itself. You have the option to expand this setup with additional wireless rear speakers. Not sure how much better the movie experience would improve if at all. Ive read the LG SLM6Y is app compatible although Ive not tried yet. Paired with my LG flat-screen there is only one remote necessary. Connectivity is good with HDMI ARC and HDMI pass thru. Ive got the LG blu-ray player connected this way and works well. There also is optical audio in USB Bluetooth and SIMPLINK. Overall its a good setup with many features at this price. I would recommend it.

Awesome Sounds and Features

Jester00 4/9/2022

Every since I bought the lg soundbar it get connected to any device that it can hook up to which I have the echo from Amazon and I have other multimedia devices it connects with to play sound from. Believe it or not the only problem Ive have is that it wont stay connected to my phone for some reason.

Good Sound When It Works

mikeeeep 12/19/2021

I have had this for two months now and the wireless sub-woofer keeps disconnecting then reconnecting. I have moved it closer and further from the sound bar. The two are actually touching each other now and it still disconnects then reconnects. It is very annoying and all LG can do for me is to offer service. I went online to get the owners manual and found out this unit has been discontinued. No manual on the LG site. I own 2 LG OLED TVs a window a/c for my garage a wireless vacuum and an LG Gram computer. All are excellent but this soundbar is not. think I will attempt to return this for something else.

No product support

Woodj 12/9/2021

I bought the SLM6Y a few weeks ago. The sound quality and power are great but I have since noticed this model was replaced with the SN6Y which makes it impossible to register my product or change the more advanced settings. LG does not have an iOS app that works. You can change some settings with the remote but you cant access the full potential since some settings are on an app that doesnt seem to exist. There is zero support articles on LG website due to this model being discontinued. I would return it for the newer model if I still had the box. Its 2021 and here I thought we had an app for everything. Apparently not

Confused

Nulinator 8/14/2021

The soundbar has decent sound. About 4 months. Now the sound cuts out when I raise or lower volume. And while watching movies the sound will drop periodicly for half a second. Hooked up to a 82 in LG82UN85 via HDMI via HDMI port 3 bough from Walmart cant locate my receipt yet to exchange it to se if unit is defective or other issues.

SuperCad 6/17/2021

This works seamlessly with my LG tv. Its linked to the tv with HDMI arc and the remote for the tv controls it. The sub linkes to the bar with Bluetooth. Download the app and music can be streamed from your device to the bar. Very easy to install.
