LG puts the home back into home cinema

 

LG launches the ideal home cinema companion - the chic HT304SU

Berkshire, 28th April 2009 - LG Electronics (LG), a global leader in consumer electronics, has launched its new compact home cinema system (HCS), the HT304SU, which packs a powerful 300W output courtesy of its five sexy, glossy, black oval speakers and subwoofer.

Specially tuned by the world-renowned expert of high-end audio, Mr Mark Levinson, the HT304SU is ideally designed for smaller rooms with its petite oval speakers, which produce a higher quality sound. The oval shaped speakers not only look good, but allow the sound to develop a greater depth and produce a fuller, richer sound to fill the room. From explosions to gun-fights, from creaking doors to chainsaws, from discos to full philharmonic orchestras, the 10.1Ch virtual surround sound guarantees you will feel part of the action by creating a fantastic home cinematic experience.


The HT304SU plays DVDs and upscales them to Full HD 1080p for improved picture quality thanks to the HDMI connection and with the USB ripping feature, music can be copied directly to a USB compatible MP3 player.


Daniel Aziz, marketing manager for Home Entertainment's Media division at LG Electronics, says, "LG wants to bring the fun and thrill of watching great movies at the cinema into the home and consumers can achieve this with the HT304SU, without spending a penny at the box-office. The system creates the art of perfect home entertainment".

The HT304SU is also compatible with most file formats enabling users to playback DivX movies and MP3, WMA and JPEG files.


The HT304SU will be available in May 2009.
