LG HT953TV review


LG has been playing the style card a lot recently, and it's paying off. This may only be a mid-price DVD system, but the elegant speakers and glossy black styling perfectly match the current crop of luxurious glossy black flatscreen TVs.

Elegant seaker design ; HDMI inut for Blu-ray ; Powerful 5.1 surround sound

Sounds a little comressed in stereo ; No Blu-ray layback

The LG HT953TV is an awesome home cinema centre piece that serves up cracking surround sound audio and super-sharp visuals at a reasonable price point.

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...
