If you thought all TVs looked pretty much the same these days, you haven't been acquainted with Loewe's new Reference system. The beautifully-styled frame of this 52 inch (200Hz and 1080p) glass-screened LCD could finally be enough to win over your girlfriend in the perennial 'I don't want the TV to dominate the room' debate.
It comes in at just a shade over 2 inches deep and features an integrated 500GB hard drive recorder - two paper thin speakers, a sub woofer and Mediacenter which plays DVDs, CDs, mp3s and internet radio are optional and expensive add-ons. Maybe get her to agree to the TV first. £9,750 (screen only) to £19,420 (whole package); www.loewe-uk.com
