Loewe's latest 42in LCD delivers on pictures, but can the rest of its home theatre package match its high-end aspirations?
The Loewe Connect Media 32 is not only the most advanced TV we've ever reviewed, but it's also one of the easiest to use. There is nevertheless some confusion about what the set's built-in twin satellite TV tuners can do.
Many DVD players now come with the ability to play DiVX video files downloaded from the internet, but this is the first TV that can wirelessly stream them from a computer.
If you don't mind, by way of opening this review we'll simply direct your attention to the pictures of the Loewe Individual Compose 40 and save ourselves having to write at least 800 words or so. Rather pretty isn't it?
Normally we don't have anything against premium-priced products as such. All we want is to find a little something extra for our money, and we're happy. Which is precisely why Loewe's £1,700 Modus L 37 makes us frown
If you're charging a premium price for a TV, make sure it offers something special. Otherwise, why would anyone want to buy it? German-brand, Loewe, however, seems to have other ideas.
