LG introduces LHT888 home theater system
If LG’s LHT888 home theater system sounds familiar to you, that’s because it was first unveiled at CES 2008 in Las Vegas earlier this year, although it is not fit for consumer consumption till now. As with many of the other LG offerings these days, you can expect distinctive designs and advanced technology, including enhanced sound quality and user-friendly touch sensing controls. According to Allan Jason, vice president of Sales and Marketing for Digital Media, LG Electronics USA, Inc., “LG’s latest home theater and audio systems were designed to meet consumers’ desire for advanced technology that doesn’t compromise the stylish design of their homes. Our new systems offer consumers the best of both worlds and truly complement the entire entertainment experience.”
The LG LHT888 DVD Home Theater System draws inspiration from the slim, elegant form of the champagne flute. It looks way too fragile for me, and I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone who has a household with toddlers and active kids running around – perhaps this would be best confined to a special movie room instead, or in homes where the kids have long left the nest, leaving two senior citizens with little choice other than to plonk themselves in front of a new HDTV while reliving their younger dates with each other by watching remastered content their favorite movies with the best possible audio experience possible.
The unique yet subtle silhouette of the loudspeakers make it possible to integrate into any premium home theater system, hence enhancing the entire room instead of sticking out like a sore thumb. Some of the LG LHT888’s features include :-
- Wireless rear speakers
- 700W 5.1-channel DVD receiver
- 1080p Up-scaling via HDMI
- USB Media Plus
- HDMI output
- LG SimpLink multi-device control (HDMI-CEC) and multi-format playback compatibility-MP3, JPEG, MPEG
You can pick up the LG LHT888 for $649.95.
