LG Electronics has announced an AV Receiver system specifically designed for the South African market, the ARX8000.

The LG AV Receiver system features a glossy black design and boasts 800 watt, 5.2 channel surround sound speakers presenting a maximised sound field and reduced interference. The horn compression tweeter increases power output by 50% compared to a normal driver while the dual subwoofers, with combined output of 300 watts, allow for a more intense bass output. Consumers can also choose between a system featuring an HDMI DVD or a Blu-Ray player.
“After a lengthy analysis of the local market, LG developed an AV Receiver system that resonates with performances and addresses the needs local consumers seek in a home theatre purchase. The AV Receiver is ideally suited for the South African public and built according to its specific requirements,” says Dr. Michelle Potgieter, corporate marketing and communications director at LG Electronics.
The LG AV Receiver system is currently available locally. The recommended retail prices for the units are R5 999 featuring an HDMI DVD player, and R6 999 featuring a Blu-ray player.
