Days of Christmas
On the sixth day of Christmas, LG gave to me
… A Wireless Micro Hi-Fi system. Or the LG CM3330WDAB, to be precise. It’ll play everything you want to throw at it – and it looks great.
If you silence everything else in your house between December 20 and the New Year and listen very carefully, you can hear the background jingle of Santa’s bells. Fact.
In the event that the constant jingle begins to jangle your nerves, you need a decent home-stereo system. It should be able to play your back catalogue of CDs, of course, but that’s probably not all the music you own these days: your smartphone is host to all kinds of music, whether it’s been bought from online stores or streamed over the web.
A decent modern Hi-Fi should be able to play straight from a smartphone without needing to string ugly, trip-hazard audio cables between the two. A dash of DAB radio wouldn’t go amiss either: if you’re about to get snowed-in it’s always useful to give the weather forecasters the chance to clue you in.
Obviously, you want all this from a single device, which is where the handsome LG CM3330WDAB comes in. The compact 2.1-channel sound system offers 40-watts of high quality sound, with punchy bass coming courtesy of the base-mounted subwoofer.
The sleek lines disguise a slot-loading CD player at the front, while Bluetooth™ compatibility means you can play tracks straight from a portable device or laptop. There are some neat tricks up its sleeves, too, such as the accompanying app that allows you to turn a smartphone into an intelligent remote control.
DAB radio is included, and for those looking for a decent sound system for the bedroom, an alarm clock; not that those with kids will need one on Christmas morning. For ad-hoc connections, a 3.5mm stereo jack is supplemented by USB, allowing you to connect virtually anything to this miniature powerhouse.
Break out the mince pies and get ready to rock.
