Audacious audio

LG HT33S and PC14 are iconic gadgets that will make this year 2000-and-sublime

Las Vegas, 07 January 2009
- LG Electronics, a global leader in consumer electronics, today announces the launch of two stylish additions to its home audio series - the HT33S and PC14, designed to blend in with any modern home.
The PC14 is a designer iPod docking station with CD and DAB capabilities. It is an expression of style that enhances any environment. With a vertical loading CD slot and iPod dock that plays and charges your Pod, the PC14 is a neat designer package. Its Emotional Red Dimmer is the heartbeat of your social life, complementing any occasion - be it raucous or intimate.

The HT33S is a compact home cinema system, ideal for smaller rooms. It creates pure sound, perfectly, as it has been specially tuned by Mr Mark Levinson, who is considered to be a living legend within the audio industry. LG's partnership with Levinson is testament to its efforts to deliver aspirational, design-led, audio systems to its consumers.

The HT33S complements your living space with its sexy, high glossy black finish with touch sensitive controls, and heightens your viewing experience by up-scaling your picture to full HD. 5.1 virtual surround sound and iPod docking completes this amazing little package.

Daniel Aziz, marketing manager, LG Electronics digital media says, "We are committed to developing products that are more than utilitarian objects. Our home audio series is specifically designed to be the art of perfect sound and home entertainment."

The HT33S is available in the UK now, while the PC14 will be available in May.
