Expert review by : Danny Phillips (



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 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...

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...

  (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 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.

Good sound at a reasonable price


I bought this a few weeks after a previous bar by another manufacturer failed. The sound is good and clear and so far it seems to work well. Connected to our smart TV with an optical cable.

Large Screen TV sound transformation


Recently purchased a large wall mounted smart Tv which provides a great visual experience. However I felt that the sound was below par. Decided to try a sound bar. The LG S8 sound bar available from Richersounds at a very competitive price has totally...
