LG SJ8 4.1 Wireless Soundbar £399.95 @ John Lewis (2 Year Guarantee)

Found 22nd Jun 2017
First post - hopefully a good deal for some. I've been looking around at soundbars to go with my LG OLED65B6V and decided to stay with the LG brand. Everywhere seems to have this soundbar at £499+ including the usual suspects - Richer Sounds, Curry's etc. Comes with a 2-year guarantee, and as this price is from John Lewis, your favourite retailer will almost certainly price match/beat.

Here's the lowdown:

Bring superb cinema sound into the home with LG's SJ8 sound bar. This elegant, slim-line speaker system provides top-quality High Resolution Audio sound to every corner of the living room for a rich, powerful, clear and immersive sonic spectrum. A separate wireless subwoofer takes care of the bass frequencies for a thunderous power that you can feel. Built-in Chromecast opens up a wealth of streaming options, while Bluetooth means it's simple to play music direct from your smart device. The SJ8 will revolutionise the sound of all the audio and visual entertainment you enjoy.

Sound in High Resolution
This 4.1 channel system boasts total audio power of 300W so you won't be short of volume. High Resolution Audio means studio quality sound, just as the artist originally intended. Based on encoding and playback at a higher sampling rate than standard, high and low frequencies are extended for a greater level of detail across the whole sonic range. The SJ8 even upscales lower rate audio files to the same 24-bit standard to improve any sound source. Meanwhile HDMI ports allow for 4K pass-through: any signal that channels through the sound bar exits as it enters, so you can link it up with other devices and have no loss in 4K audio or video quality. And Adaptive Sound Control automatically tunes the frequency settings to deliver the best EQ depending on what you're watching.

Wireless Woofer
The separate subwoofer provides booming bass and sub-bass frequencies that bring your entertainment to powerful life and make you feel part of the action. And because it connects wirelessly with the main sound bar you have greater flexibility on where to place it for maximum impact.

Wireless Wonder
Armed with both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, your wireless connections are covered. With built-in Chromecast you can stream music, podcasts, radio, and access Google Play, while Bluetooth allows you to pair up your smart device simply and wirelessly to give your favourite tunes a stunning new lease of life.

Sleek Metallic Design
With a thickness of just 38mm the SJ8 has a beautifully sleek profile. Artfully constructed from premium but lightweight metallic materials it sits elegantly aligned in your home entertainment set-up. It also perfectly matches select LG TVs for a fully integrated audio visual partnership.

I have an LG B6 and SH8 which I think is not much diff to SJ8. I just bought a Sony Ht-RT5 (£299) to replace the SH8 and damn the sound is really good and I like that I can adjust each speaker level. The Sony app actually works compared to the LG app that don't work so internet features only via ethernet.
