When it comes to aesthetics, you can trust the Koreans to go over the edge with fancy designs. It started off with the Samsung Bordeaux-series LCD TVs with their wine glass-inspired flat panels, and now we have LG following suit. As part of its Design Art home theater systems, the electronics giant is launching two models featuring speakers modeled after a champagne flute. Each of these sleek tall-boy speakers is dressed in stylish piano black and has a two-way design with dedicated tweeter and woofer for better sound reproduction.
Though we believe LG could have done a little better than naming them HTZ62TZ and HTZ762PZ, these sexy home-theater-in-a-box sets are nevertheless equipped with all the latest technological bells and whistles. Both pack powerful 700W digital audio amplification, offer 1080p DVD upscaling and ship with Simplink-ready (HDMI-CEC) HDMI terminals. Onboard USB playback has not been forgotten, too, though we are still awaiting confirmation on its capabilities.
The $526 HTZ62TZ and $460 HTZ62PZ are perfect complements for its LB9R-series LCD TVs from the same product line and are now available in Singapore. There was no further information on launch details elsewhere.
