Loewe Connect 37 Media


The Connect 37 has a secret weapon: an optional built-in HDD recorder

Stylish design ; Fantastic features ; Superb audio

Expensive ; Confusing user menus

Meanwhile, if you're watching HD and you want to call in the TV's pixel-by-pixel 'no overscanning' mode, you have to choose a '16:9 PC' setting. Highly illogical

Loewe Connect 37 37in LCD TV


Loewe brings together style and features in the form of its Connect 37 LCD TV.

Still, once the seemingly inevitable teething pains have been sorted out, the system really does work very well. It's bizarrely thrilling to see your digital photos streaming wirelessly through to the TV, especially as the TV shows them in wonderful...

Loewe Connect 42 Media Full HD+100 DR+ 42in LCD TV


If you've cash to burn on a living room centrepiece, this 42in Loewe LCD TV could be it.

Yet more improvements worthy of note include a free TWONKY account; the facility to update the TV's system software via the Internet rather than having to have a dealer do it for you; an application that lets you add Internet Radio favourite lists to...

Loewe Connect 42 Media Full-HD+ 100 DR+ review


Thanks to numerous improvements and upgrades, the Loewe Connect 42 Media Full-HD+ 100 DR+ is a much better TV than the Connect 37 Media Full-HD+ DR+ that we reviewed last year, both in terms of its performance and multimedia functionality. Bang &...

Sumptuous design ; Frequently excellent picture quality ; Outstanding audio ; Brilliant multimedia capability ; Can be upgraded with a number of modules

Very dear ; Care has to be taken with the picture set-up ; Some motion-processing artefacts ; Black levels could be better

Conclusion Not everyone will want or be able to cough up nearly £3,000 for a 42-inch TV. But we think the Connect 42 Media Full-HD+ 100 DR+ is talented enough to justify its steep price, particularly if you're also tempted by Loewe's other AV offerings

Loewe Connect 32 Media Full-HD+ DR+ review


This is one of the best 32-inch TVs we've ever used. If it wasn't for the enormous price tag, we would have no problem recommending it to everyone. The problem is, for most people the price is just far too high -- you could almost get a 50-inch Pioneer...

Design ; HD picture ; Sound quality ; Remote ; Menu system ; PVR integration ; Media streaming

Price ; Freeview picture could be better

If you want something a bit more reasonable, but a similar size, consider the Philips 32PFL9603, which also features Ambilight to engage you in games and movies. If you're looking to spend more and want a great TV, don't forget that for this kind of...

Loewe Connect 37 Media


A wireless network media player in a telly? A super-sexy 1080p one, to boot? That'll be Loewe's Connect 37 Media

Slick concept. Excellent integration. Good picture. Superb sound. Gorgeous looks

Picture has some noise. Doesn't support Apple Lossless. Hard-disk and Freesat modules are cost options

A wireless network media player in a telly? A super-sexy 1080p one, to boot? That'll be Loewe's Connect 37 Media

Not cheap, but the Connect 37 delivers enough quality and geek prowess to justify its lofty aspirations

Loewe Connect 37 Media Full-HD+ DR+ review


If it wasn't for the price, this TV would be an excellent choice for anyone looking for an all-in-one solution. As it is, there isn't very much this TV doesn't do, and its picture and sound quality are certainly excellent

Picture and sound quality ; Media streaming ; Built-in PVR ; Ease of use ; Design

Price ; Some codec support missing from media streaming portion

We can't pretend this isn't an expensive piece of equipment, but we can't forget that it's much more than just a TV. The Loewe Connect 37 Full-HD+ DR+ is three products in one: a media streamer, PVR and television, all with excellent functionality. By...

Loewe Connect 37


The most flexible TV we've tested - from its built-in network media player to optional hard-disk recorder and Freesat tuner, this is a sleek, stylish solution.

A clever concept; good picture with great sound; easy-to-use considering its complex nature

Some picture noise; won't stream Apple Lossless files or high bit-rate MP3s; DR+ hard drive and Freesat tuner are cost options

Expert review by:

Loewe Connect 42


Plenty of substance to back up the 'premium product' pretensions, but still, an expensive option

Good looks, fine ergonomics; quite dynamic sound; splendid TV reception and recording

Can sound a bit shouty at high volumes; even at this level of performance it seems pricey
