Customer Question

My LG TV (3 months old) has no audio output jack, and I wish to install a small sound bar to improve the sound (which, I have to sa, is the WORST I have ever heard from any television.)

Technician's Assistant: Who makes your speaker or sound system?

Is there a way of connecting the sound bar?

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your sound system?

Visual search of TV rear panel, study of the "owner's manual." What else can I do?

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Theater Expert to know before I connect you?

Thanks, no.
