Loewe says its new 32in Connect 32 HDTV is ideal for smaller rooms. The LEDs are designed to provide even lighting, while its filters improve energy consumption.

Loewe claims that its high luminance, high contrast and high colour gamut screen deliver class-leading picture quality. The company says that it tried to source an OEM panel that met its needs, but decided it would have to make its own.

Users can watch one programme while recording another, either via USB or to the DR+ hard drive [Connect 32DR+ model only].

The built-in speaker bar at the bottom of the set also boasts good sound quality with 80W of power on-board.

It is available now and retails at £999 (Connect 32 DR+ £1,299).
