Exceptional quality and detailing define the Loewe Spheros R26. It is a nice little package with a hefty price tag of close to $4,500. However, Loewe more than makes up for this price with a feature-rich unit that is sure to please the discerning television viewer.

The unit is big on connectivity with a wide array of input ports, including two Scart terminals, and a HDMI digital input. However, the Scart hookups are very difficult to reach in their location at the underside of the back panel Additi…

Exceptional quality and detailing define the Loewe Spheros R26. It is a nice little package with a hefty price tag of close to $4,500. However, Loewe more than makes up for this price with a feature-rich unit that is sure to please the discerning television viewer.

The unit is big on connectivity with a wide array of input ports, including two Scart terminals, and a HDMI digital input. However, the Scart hookups are very difficult to reach in their location at the underside of the back panel Additionally, the Loewe includes a variety of audio input and output options, however it is lacking a PC input port.

While the unit is loaded with features, it is surprising lacking a picture in picture function, and the menu system can be aggravating to the untrained user. In addition, it tends to lag in channel changing, with a slight delay before the unit reads the remote command.

The Loewe lives up to its price when considering the picture quality, with extraordinary clarity, even in the more difficult black tones.  The unit boasts vivid color saturation, with very true-to-life color representation.  When used in a DVD setting, the Loewe Spheros really shines, showing exceptional detail and a lack of image blur in high motion footage.  The unit also provides exceptional audio capabilities from its four speakers.  Despite their size, they deliver a rich and enjoyable tone quality.

One word of caution when purchasing the Loewe is the fact that there is no analogue tuner. This could cause a problem for consumers in an area that does not have digital reception.

If you are looking for a high-quality smaller flat screen television, the Loewe Spheros R26 will not disappoint. However, given its high price point, one could also purchase an adequately appointed 42-inch unit.
