    I'm looking for a device to enhance the sound system for my new LG TV. I used a standard sound bar for my last TV and that may not work(no room to install it) for my new setup. Any suggestions?

    I'm looking for one for the camper as well. It will eventually move to my cottage if I ever get off my ass and start looking for land

    They have a playbar as well. Sonos stuff is so nice but it's not cheap.

    I have a Samsung bar + sub that will shake my house to its foundation, and I'm not an Audio guy so that's good enough for me :lol:

    I picked up an LG LAS450 refurbed for $120 around christmas. It's 100% better than the TV by itself but not crazy loud. BT capability and Wireless sub is mint!

    I've got a Sony sound bar with wireless sub and Bluetooth on the bedroom set up. Works great.

    The Bose speakers are overpriced for what you get. I had very high expectations as my Dad has a nice Bose home setup. Took the soundbar home for day, took it back bought a Marley. (it's been a few years.) There was no decent bass, just couldn't wrestle the sound out of it I wanted. The Sonos was the next step up in price - but man, what a nice system.

    Sonos are a waste of money IMO. The only difference is that you can connect it directly to the net vs using bluetooth and a smart device.

    I also have a Samsung with sub and i'm quite pleased with it.

    The device worked pretty good but I could only use it standalone and could not mix the sound with the TV sound system.....returning it.....I may have to go with an LG device.

    Why would you want to mix the sound from the TV with the sound bar? The whole purpose of a sound bar is to eliminate the shitty factory TV sound system.

    I could live with the sound bar only audio, but I didn't want another separate device control to use.

    One of the sounds options for my LG is to install another LG sounds bar and have one control(ie mute, vol up and down) for all devices.
