We haven’t seen the likes of this since Arnie stood next to Danny DeVito in Twins – LG has produced a ‘tall boy’ home cinema system, and launched it alongside a midget brother.
The LHRH760IA (pictured above) is a collection of five beanpole tenors which, in tandem with their bassy subwoofer, can fill your room with an impressive 700W output.
Its DVD player isn’t fussy about formats, supporting the likes of DVD+/-RW and DVD-RAM, and there’s a 250GB hard drive landfill to load up with 345 hours of programs, which are compressed using LG’s DVFX tech.
If you live in a low-ceilinged bungalow, though, you might want to consider the more vertically challenged LHRH361SE (pictured below). Its five satellite speakers deliver a more neighbour-friendly 300 watt output, but its recorder still has a 160Gb hard-drive, which can do all the usual pausing and replaying of live TV and will store up to 220 hours of progs.
Both systems, of course, feature HDMI connections to pair with your flat screen, and have ports aplenty for connectivity to MP3 players or digicams. We’ll update you with pricing and availability when LG stops being so secretive.
