LG HB954PB review


LG's HB954PB has a smart set of speakers. They're heavy, especially the floor-standing front pair, which have sturdy metal stands and weighted bases. Together they produce a taut bass and well-rounded mid-range that brings out the best in all kinds of...

A beefy set of speakers makes this a stunning-sounding home cinema kit, but better value home cinema kits are out there.

LG HB954PB review


The LG HB954PB's styling may not be to everyone's taste, but this competitively priced system provides a convenient method of delivering great video and audio performance

Great picture quality ; Solid sound performance ; YouTube support ; Two HDMI inputs

Overly flashy styling ; No automatic calibration ; No support for high-definition DivX files

Conclusion We're not overly keen on the metallic blue effect on the speakers, but, in most other respects, the LG HB954PB is a fine home-cinema kit. It's easy to use, packed with features, and its combination of great video-playback quality and...

Can LG's Blu-ray player, iPod dock and AV amp combo really live up to its all-things-to-all-men billing?

With quite so many strings to its bow, we're impressed at the LG's ability across the board - a solid all-in-one achievement

Bags of functions including integrated iPod dock; two HDMI inputs; good looks; plenty of power and weight; good pictures

Bass needs to be tighter; front and back speakers a little disparate

Not the punchiest bass
