The Good Excellent sound. Simple set-up. Impressive 3D sound. Great Blu-ray playback. Broad range of network features.
The Bad Interface could use a polish. Slight whine when loading discs. Remote can be "fussy".
The Bottom Line Feature packed and with performance in spades, LG's BH9520TW home-theatre set-up offers great sound and a huge range of playback options for a solid price.
Arriving in its coffin-sized box, the BH9520TW was daunting to unpack; it was almost clown-car-esque, the way in which a seemingly endless array of plastic-wrapped parts were revealed. In truth, the system was actually fairly simple to set up, given its range of features.
LG's BH9520TW is, at its core, a 5.1-channel home-theatre system with 3D-capable Blu-ray playback. However, LG has added four 3D speakers, which are designed to deliver multi-directional sound. These are integrated into the four standard tallboy speakers, rather than requiring additional placement around a room.
