Vertical channels, dual subwoofers, and more.
Typically when you're signing up for a home theater system of HTiB, you're admitting that you're willing to settle for lower quality and a complete absence of style. LG's latest offering shows that you might not have to give up either.
The new HX996TS comes with four Tallboy speakers that use top speakers to create vertical sound and fill the air space above your head. This design was put in place to help put you right into the middle of the movie, giving a complete feeling of immersion.
LG's HX996TS offers something you don't see often in an HTiB - dual subwoofers. Pop one on each side of the set for better sound quality and richer bass.
LG hasn't announced a price for the HX996TS yet, but we expect to hear both a price and release date at CES.
