LG HLX-56S review


The HLX-56S is an all-in-one home cinema system cast in the shape of a soundbar. With integrated Blu-ray player, digital amplifier, net portal and media streamer, it's pretty much all you need for instant AV gratification.

Convenient all-in-one design; wireless subwoofer; gutsy audio; plenty of features

More wide stereo than surround sound; slow-loading BD deck

Review LG's HLX56S is an audacious all-in-one home cinema system, cast in the guise of a mild-mannered soundbar. With integrated 3D Blu-ray player, copious amplification and IPTV portal, it's got everything you need for the upmarket man-cave, in a...

All-in-one cinema systems inevitably involve a degree of compromise, but this well-executed twin set offers fewer than you might imagine. Partner with a larg-ish flatscreen, for a thoroughly acceptable home cinema experience. ®
