Great value home cinema doesn't get much better than the LG HT304SU.
It's hard to think of any home cinema system that packs in so much for so little. At the heart of this LG home cinema system is a good quality DVD player. Coming complete with upscaling to 1080p and an HDMI output, you'll get a superb quality picture from your DVDs, especially if you have a 1080p TV to make the most of it. Bearing in mind that a DVD player of this standard could, alone, cost half the amount of this package system, the audio side is spectacularly fine value.
Featuring decoding for Dolby Digital and Dolby Pro Logic II, the HT304SU gives excellent surround sound results with either digital or analogue (from TV) signals. With five cute satellite speakers and VSM (Virtual Sound Matrix) you get a spacious, enveloping sound that no TV could hope to match within its built-in speakers. Then there's the subwoofer. Designed to be tucked neatly out of sight, the subwoofer boosts bass to give a cinema-like feel and a presence of "being there". With 45 watts per channel (4 ohms), the LG HT304SU isn't going to rattle windows but it's more than enough for most rooms and a great improvement on most TV's standard audio.
Other great features with this LG home cinema system include a USB socket. This allows you to plug in your MP3 player and rip music from CDs which are, of course, playable on the DVD drive. A built-in FM radio is perfect for catching up with the news or music in the morning whilst an auxiliary input lets you hook up your MP3 or iPod.
With such unobtrusive speakers and a main unit that's no bigger than a conventional DVD player, why not give your TV's speakers a break and try listening to films the way they were meant to be heard - in glorious surround sound!
