LG dips a toe into all-in-one audio with a well-specced (and good-looking) new budget system

The first in a series of new products from LG was announced this afternoon, and called "revolutionary" by Mark Levinson, demoing it in London's Hyde Park.

The FA163DAB is a DAB-sporting micro system with CD playback, FM tuner, remote and iPod dock, finished in the obligatory piano black. "This is a landmark event in turning around our audio," said an LG spokesman today.

It seems that Levinson may have been involved in more than just the tuning. It comes with four test CDs (classical and blues), one of which, we're reliably informed, features the man himself on bass.

Launching next month, the FA163DAB will retail for £200. We'll bring you more details, as well as the rest of the new LG lineup, as we get them.
