LG Pyramid Home Theater
LG on Monday decided to shake up its home theaters with the introduction of the HT752TP. The receiver and all five satellite speakers abandon the safety of rectangular shapes for a pyramid design at their base. To further the effect, the base itself uses no moving buttons, instead using a touch interface to control the DVD player and music.
Sound is enhanced over other home theaters through a distinctive virtualization process: LG boasts that its 5.1-channel system can create a 10.1-channel sound. HDMI output helps the sound and visuals reach the TV at full quality, while a USB port lets the receiver load music and photos from a flash or hard drive. Prices and a possible North American launch are unknown.
