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 LAP340 SoundPlate Review

 

The latest trend in soundbars is the sound base, a speaker that you actually put under your TV. Steve Withers takes a look at LG's newest addition -...

Full-bodied sound ; Excellent build quality ; Attractive design

Overbearing at higher volumes ; Very limited inputs ; Price

The LG LAP340 SoundPlate is an attractively designed and well built example of this new and fast developing product type. There are two subwoofers and four drivers crammed into its sleek proportions, with a total of 120 watts of power. As a result the...

LG Sound Plate LAP340 review

 

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.

Overall, LG’s SoundPlate could be a legitimate choice for your compact home theater solution, though with some real reservations. At $400, it’s a bit pricey, and it doesn’t offer the same level of power, warmth, or full range accuracy as more...

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.

The LG SoundPlate LAP340 is a speaker system that sounds good on paper, but its small, concealable size comes at the cost of power. Its subtle, stealthy design and useful features like Bluetooth and (if you have a compatible LG HDTV) LG SoundSync make...

LG SoundPlate LAP340

 

Great looks, average performance

Sleek, good looking design ; Good build quality ; Uncomplicated controls ; Very easy to setup

No extra connectors or accessories ; Dearth of sound customization options ; Average audio quality for movies and music ; Drop in sound quality at high volumes ; Expensive

The LG SoundPlate LAP340 has an MRP of Rs. 30,990, which is a significant amount of cash to drop on a compact home theater audio solution. When you take into account the SoundPlate’s negatives that include average performance and absence of features,...

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

Amazing product for reasonable rate

 

I bought 2 LG LAP sound systems and both of the sound systems are excellent. My family is enjoying with the sound quality, compact design, easy installation, user friendly and excellent support. I highly recommend this product for all music lovers.

Perfect fit for my Set-up

 

I love this Sound Plate!I really enjoy that unlike a sound bar, with this sound plate my LG 47" flat screen TV sits on top of the plate with very little extra space necessary, approximately 5" of additional space to the width of either side of the TV's...
