Question LG WX Series OLED Soundbar Question

Hey all,

I’m in the process of designing a new extension and want to put a TV in it.

I’m looking at either the WX or GX. I’d like the sound to be good so I’m wondering about the WX soundbar. Does anyone know if it has improved from previous W generations? I’m wondering if a wireless sub or wireless rear speakers could be connected to it?

If not I think i’d be better off with the GX as at least I can do what I want with the sound.

Does anyone have any WX experience yet?

Not sure about the WX soundbar. But the GX has a matching soundbar which looks better than the WX soundbar IMO. The GX soundbar a 3.1.2 and comes with a wireless sub and you can expand it with a set of optional wireless LG surround speakers.

ohhhhh I did not know this existed!!!

this will solve a couple of issues for me as I can:

1) move the bracket up slightly to correct a wonky install

2) get better sound than from my Sonos beam!

Is that a 55 or 65” screen? Do they do different size Soundbar to match the screen size? Looks 👍
not exactly sure but believe it’s only one size given there is only one price listing. And if that’s true then the picture shows 55inch

“From 15th July - 18th August, LG is also offering customers who purchase the new LG GX Soundbar a 50 percent discount when purchased with an LG OLED GX TV (55”, 65”, 77”).”

nice one LG, way to reward your loyal early adopters!

John Lewis have this in stock. So tempting.....but it's a real sucker punch that I won't get the 50% off which LG is offering anyone who now purchases the GX!

Also the specs on the John Lewis site specifies that it’s the same width as the 65inch GX so it won’t fit the 55inch. Also it’s a 3.1 so I’m assuming Atmos is virtual.

Yep, seems to be. I'm in two minds, either stick with a AV receiver and get proper speakers which I cannot really use (due to neighbour) or get this and then move my TV up a touch to accommodate it, which will also allow someone to actually put the TV straight on the wall instead of it being off centre and wonky!
