Las Vegas, January 6, 2008 – LG Electronics and Mr. Mark Levinson announced their collaboration to develop products that deliver enhanced sound quality and a differentiated, stylish design. Over the past year, LG Electronics worked with the audio legend to develop and personally tune selected premium home theater systems.
“This bold initiative is one of several underway that support LG’s goal of becoming a top player in the global audio market,” said Mr. B.B. Hwang, president of LG Electronics’ Digital Media Company. “Consumers value superior sound quality in home entertainment systems and Mr. Mark Levinson is the obvious choice to help elevate sound quality in LG’s new product line.”
The two new LG systems, models AP3133 and LHT888, are being demonstrated publicly for the first time today, on the eve of the 2008 International CES. “These sound systems are so good, it`s shocking,” Mr. Levinson said. “Even the most jaded audio veterans are going to be completely knocked out.”
AP3133. This high-definition AV home theater system features multi-driver floor standing loudspeakers, center channel speaker, surrounds, and powerful subwoofer. The system includes a 7.1-channel AV receiver with 150Watts X 7 "ICEpower" output stage, Burr-Brown PCM 1796 24bit/192kHz DAC, multi-input HDMI switching with near 1080p upscaling, 1080p pass through, HD Radio capability, and Audessey Auto Room Multi EQ Adjustment. The system is built around LG’s award-winning “Super Blu” dual-format player.
