Loewe Connect Ultra HD 4K TV launching
Comes with great audio and Smart TV Features too
Loewe has just announced a new range of 4K Smart TVs, with 40-, 48- and 55-inch models available from December 2014.
As ever, these German engineered TVs appear beautifully made but they’re not all about looks, there are brains, too, with a host of Smart TV features available. Thanks to a built-in 1TB hard drive, you can use the Connect TVs as fully-fledged PVRs and there’s tablet and smartphone app integration, with that, allowing you to stream content around the house.
Connect is compatible with HDMI 2.0, HDCP 2.2 and HEVC h265, for some 4K future-proofing, and there’s also a 5.1-channel decoder with support for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD audio. Which might mean you can do without a dedicated AVR.
The Loewe Connect integrated speaker system can also act as the centre speaker in a 5.1 set-up and it boasts 80 watts of amplification, driving four forward-facing speakers, engineered with high-excursion ports to augment the bass.
Loewe says their ‘Image +’ picture processing, delivers images that are full of detail and brim with vitality – but then they all say that – and there’s also a claim of ‘plasma-like deep blacks, ’ which we’d love the opportunity to investigate further.
The Loewe Connect range is available from December in 40in and 55in screen sizes, in a choice of black, silver or cappuccino. A blue trim is also available, as an optional add-on kit. The 48in model joins the range in 2015. RRPs as below:
Connect 40 – £1,999
Connect 48 – £2,399
Connect 55 – £2,799
