LG brings the cinema to your living room

But can it cook popcorn?

Business security measures using SSL

LG Electronics has created a home cinema system with enough power under the hood to ensure you could start holding screenings in your own front room. The HT902TB boasts 1000 watts of listening power and is also sleek and stylish to boot.

The system includes four stand-alone tallboy speakers, each dipped in a glossy black paint, and a sub-woofer. An XTS Pro digital amplifier is also thrown in, which LG said will deliver rich and crystal clear sound by creating five virtual speakers to replicate a 10.1Ch sound effect. It reckons this allows sound to travel “more smoothly” around the room.

The HT902TB’s controller unit-cum-DVD player connects to HD-ready TVs via an HDMI cable and provides 1080i resolution, although some only consider 1080p to be the true HD resolution. The unit is compatible with DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW and DVD+RW, but there is no mention of HD DVD or its rival Blu-ray.

Peripheral audio devices, such iPods, can be connected to the unit through its portable audio 3.5 Stereo In jack and it also features a USB port as well. For your other peripheral devices, the unit also supports WMA, MP3 and JPEG files as well.

LG’s HT902TB home cinema system is available in the UK now and retails for around £280 (€340).
