    A hifi installer friend of mine always pronounces it Ler-ver

    Not sure if it is right, but would like to know too for when my Aconda arrives.

    It's pronounced "Lurr-vuh"
    Apparently it's German for "Light".

    Loewe is german for lion, and is pronounced loo-va, but a bit on the leu-va side. It is the same as Löwe.
    ... just testing my registration ;)

    Well, licht is german for light

    That pretty much sums up all the german words I know :)

    It's nice to see you're here also. It's the 15th century all over again :)
