A pricey but impressive all-in-one home cinema system

Powerful, dynamic sound ; Comprehensive feature list ; Chic design

Brash tone ; Lengthy setup ; No 4OD or ITV Player

LG’s phenomenal flagship system offers a mind-blowing feature list, chic design and rigorous movie sonics, although the brash tone takes the shine off an otherwise superb performance.

LG BH9540TW review

  (Rating Hidden)

LG's BH9540TW home cinema system crams in a lot of high-end features. It's a 9.1 speaker system with wireless rear speakers plus DVD and 3D Blu-ray playback, and it can also upscale Blu-rays for Ultra HD TV sets. Throw in built-in smart TV and...

LG BH9540TW 9.1ch Smart 3D Blu-ray Home Cinema


Wireless rear speakers work well and save digging up the floor. They need separate power though, but that's fine with me. Good looking speakers

Detail on classical and house music not as good as my separates system

LG BH9540TW 9.1ch Smart 3D Blu-ray Home Cinema


Superb sound. Looks like a quality product, easy to sync to my lg tv. Good points far outweigh the bad points.v

Basic instruction set-up. NOT wireless, but, then it would require power cables to every speaker. Speaker balance is time consuming to get it correct
