LG is a strong believer in integrated high-definition tuners, which means you can receive the HD signal as soon as you plug the screen in. It also means you don’t have to invest in a separate HD set-top box and clutter up your living room with another device. Should you choose to use an external source, the 42PX5D also features a range of inputs, including an HDMI connector for future devices.
The 42PX5D features LG’s XD Engine, which processes the image to provide a sharp picture and improved colour response. The very high 8000:1 contrast ratio also ensures crisp blacks and bright whites and colours. The 42PC5D also includes two stereo speakers that feature SRS Trusurround XT technology to improve the audio output and simulate true surround sound using only two speakers.
