LG Announces New Blu-ray Home Theater System

Posted Mon Oct 12, 2009 at 09:00 AM PDT by Mike Attebery

The HB954SP features a Blu-ray player, 1000W of power across 5.1 channels, and some rather unusual speakers.

LG’s new Home Theater in a Box does everything an entry level HTiB really should do. It sports a Blu-ray player that lets users view Blu-ray and upscaled DVD content in full 1080p. It plays music from an iPod or iPhone, but not video. It streams videos from YouTube and offers USB playback.

The HB954SP features a pair of HDMI inputs so that other sources such as game systems and DVRs can be hooked up, and offers 5.1 channel audio. The system is designed with ease of use in mind, and even allows a simple shutoff for the subwoofer so “you do not wake sleeping children,” according to the press release.

The system comes with a subwoofer, two surround speakers, and one speaker each for the L/C/R channels. The somewhat egg shaped black speakers look a bit odd, but of course the sound is what truly matters. Boasting 1000 watts of power, the HB954SP should have no shortage of kick.

The HV954SP will be available this November. No pricing has yet been announced.
