LG HT953TV review


Tallboys with a touch of class

Elegant speaker design ; HDMI input for Blu-ray ; Powerful 5.1 surround sound

Sounds a little compressed in stereo ; No Blu-ray playback

Mid-range, but there's nothing mediocre about this home cinema system, which really shows the competition how it's done.

Love or loath the design, this package delivers on so many fronts it deserves serious consideration

Awesome arsenal of features; decent balance to the sound; solid picture performance

It's a beast of a package

Plenty of speakers for the money. Crisp audio and video quality.

Upscaled pics are great, but where's the Blu-ray?

A 5.1-speaker lifestyle home cinema system with Full HD upscaling DVD player and 10.1 virtual surround sound, the LG HT953TV also has an iPod-and-USB port for music – and you can even burn CDs straight to (some) MP3 players. The good Audiophile guru...

A smart, stylish and capable all-in-one system that impresses all round. Only the lack of Blu-ray playback might keep your credit card in its wallet. LG HT953TV is tagged with LG HT953TV, LG and home cinema. Select a tag (LG HT953TV, for example) to...
