Soundbar suggestions.....


Question

I've recently bought a 49" LG NANO866 TV and so far, am very pleased with it, especially when viewing UHD content, but I'd like to enhance the audio. The crescent stand on this model is both functional & stylish, but doesn't really lend itself to having a soundbar in front of it, even the LG SK1 with a width of 650mm isn't that well accommodated within the curve of the stand below the TV. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Stephen.

@Stephen Davies Many TV owners who want good sound, and good dialogue, go for an AVR (Audio Visual Receiver), as these have a variety of extra features built in if you want them, and even the lower featured ones have good controls over things like dialogue enhancement, and room correction, where a lot of lower spec Sound Bars do not.

A centre speaker is a MUST if you want good dialogue from your TV programmes (especially those that have a lot of background music, or the actors use that horrible "natural acting" style and mumble like they are trying to emulate Marlon Brando)! However, with a stand, you will need about 6 inches clearance to have a small centre speaker, and room for good bookshelf speakers left and right of the TV. A Subwoofer for LF and effects can go anywhere. 

As your TV is 49" diagonally, I suspect it is about 46" wide, and with stand limits (depending where the legs are). I guess you need about a 40" soundbar. This probably will limit your choice, depending on your location, but Google around to see what comes in at the right size.

Thanks for the suggestions td47. Much appreciated! I actually do have a Sony AV receiver set up for TV/BluRay use. It worked fine with my previous, 8 year old LG 3D TV, but as it's now over 20 years old and 'analogue,' its somewhat difficult to connect & sync with this new LG model, hence my thinking about a suitable soundbar that was compatible to my new TV and sympathetic size-wise to the crescent-shaped stand.

      I'm not getting any audio from the apps via the HDMI via ARC connection to my receiver.  This occurred two weeks ago and was unable to resolve it, but ironically there was new firmware released that same day for my B6 (3/31/17) and this fixed the issue.  However, now I again can't get it working after a TV reset and tinkering with the audio settings again.  I tried to load the firmware again, but it appears this is not possible to forceable load the same firmware.

      Perfect for Small Spaces, LG Eclair Features Immersive
      Dolby Atmos Sound and Robust Bass With Low-Vibration

      SEOUL, July 19, 2021 — LG Electronics (LG) announces the rollout of LG Eclair (model QP5) soundbar, its most compact model to date, starting in North America followed by other regions around the world. A 2021 CES Innovation Award Honoree, this soundbar is a great fit for contemporary lifestyles thanks to its sleek, compact design that fits well in limited spaces while still being able to deliver immersive sound.
      Despite its compact size, LG Eclair delivers powerful performance with Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X support while still keeping peace with the neighbors with its low vibration, power bass subwoofer. Measuring only 296 x 59.9 x 126mm – only one-third the width of LG’s previously smallest 3.1.2 channel Atmos soundbar, SP8YA – LG Eclair features a chic oval design and jersey fabric in classic black or white that blend in seamlessly with any modern décor.
      LG Eclair’s advanced, 3.1.2 channel system with wireless subwoofer employs Meridian Audio’s tuning and technology to deliver exceptional detail and spatiality. Meridian’s Horizon technology up-mixes two channel stereo content into immersive, multichannel audio to deliver a wider soundstage for a truly immersive listening experience with tonal balance that remains authentic to the original recording.
      LG Eclair offers an enhanced viewing experience thanks to 4K pass-through support which allows viewers to enjoy stunning 4K and HDR content, including Dolby Vision, on their favorite streaming services. What’s more, adaptive LG AI Sound Pro analyzes the content being played and automatically applies the best sound settings, depending on which genre of content the user is enjoying, whether it’s news, music or cinema.
      Not only does LG Eclair make sound come alive, it’s also designed with convenience in mind, requiring fewer cables without sacrificing sound quality. This is possible because enhanced audio return channel (eARC) support allows for the lossless transmission of 5.1-channel, 7.1-channel and immersive audio such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X on compatible TVs. Owners of 2021 LG TVs will also benefit from authentic and clear sound with TV Sound Mode Share, which combines the processing power of LG’s latest α (Alpha) AI processors and AI Sound Pro to reveal rich nuances of the content source.1
      Beyond sound performance, LG designed the Eclair not only to elevate the home viewing experience but to reduce its impact on the environment. This effort has resulted in LG Eclair being recognized as an Eco-Product by SGS Société Générale de Surveillance SA of Switzerland.2
      # # #
      1 TV Sound Mode Share and AI processor version vary by TV model.
      2 SGS Eco-Product certification based on several categories including use of recycled materials in packaging. The soundbar ships in eco-conscious packaging with internal packing material made from recycled molded pulp, an alternative to polystyrene foam and plastic.
