The LG HS8 Brings Better Sound for the Mid-Range Class
Like your typical soundbar, the LG HS8 can boost the audio coming from your TV alongside with a matching wireless subwoofer. In addition to having a built-in Wi-Fi, it also has the ability to stream music from a device over the home network with the aid of LG’s Music Flow app. It also has Bluetooth connectivity to cater your other portable devices.
When it comes to looks, the LG HS8 soundbar is the product of the company’s long-standing design expertise when making good-looking audio devices. It is finished entirely in silver that has a luxurious brushed top panel. This is, without a doubt, a gorgeous addition to anyone’s swanky flat-panel TV and home-entertainment set.
Even though it does look good, much can be said about it build quality. It feels a bit plasticky in certain places that lacks the lacquered premium build that it is supposed to show. However, when looking at the soundbar as a whole, it is still a well-made unit.
This is a 4.1-channel soundbar that comes along with two 35 x 72-millimeter racetrack woofers as well as two 13-millimeter balance dome tweeters. These are placed at both ends to widen the soundfield. Its amplifier is able to deliver 60-watts to each front channel and 20-watts to each surround channel. The accompanying subwoofer is able to muster 200-watts. In total, the set is able to produce 360-watts of audio performance power.
When you play action-packed movies onto your TV with the HS8 connected and you will feel the power and excitement coming out of the film. The sound does any video great justice as it provides bark and bite. Despite its optimal power, audio quality remains balance as it produces crisp treble and a rich bass.
The LG HS8 is a stylish, feature-packed, and well-performing soundbar that has no problem delivering audio excitement from musical tracks, movies, or TV shows. Those who are looking for a premium-looking soundbar that has the design to match its performance will not be disappointed.
