At the heart of this one-box system is a top quality Blu-ray player. Outputting via the HDMI socket, the HB405su gives 1080p high resolution images that are more than twice as detailed as a similar DVD. This is backed up by BD-Live that offers a wide range of Internet based additional content. Simply connect the LAN socket into your home network hub and you have access to a wide range of extra features including direct access to YouTube. Also available is DLNA compatibility. This lets you stream music, videos and photos from your laptop, PC or NAS (Network Attached Storage) system. 1080p up-scaling gives the best picture quality from your standard DVDs. Featuring decoding for Dolby True HD/DTS-HD and Dolby Pro Logic II, the HB405su gives excellent sound processing whatever the source. With five cute satellite speakers 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 66 watts per channel (max power), the LG HB405su 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 with two-way compatibility. This allows you to plug in your MP3 player and rip music from CDs which are, of course, playable on the Blu-ray drive. Alternatively, use it to playback media from your phone or camera, through the system. 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 Blu-ray 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 HD surround sound!
