They didn't make mid-fi anything back in the day. It was all perceived as cheap bells-n-whistles junk. Now, they all make pretty good mid-fi receivers. Yamaha and Pioneer have also made some strides in their speaker offerings:Yamaha
That doesn't include the studio-level speakers that Yamaha manufactures.Pioneer
The point is, I would no longer classify their offerings in the Kraco category- which is junk. I'm not saying that everything that LG manufactures is top flight, but I certainly wouldn't discount them on name alone. Especially if their product were to review well.
