    Sweet! Anyone that was looking for a retro style TV with all the bells and whistles of HDTV, look no further.

    Called the LG 32LN630R “Classic TV,” this 32 inch TV has rotary dials up front for those who like walking up to the set from their couch to change the channel or adjust the volume. Three function buttons are placed underneath the dials. If you are worried that you will have to get up all the time to adjust the dials, you are fortunate that LG will be including a remote control.

    LG hasn’t said if this TV set will be released in other markets, it is selling it in Korea only right now for 840,000 Won which is roughly US$750.

    I guess a 32" TV didn't exist in the 70's, but $750 seems like it might be on the high side. However, this is a design statement...

    Who will be stepping up?

    I'll be stepping up only if they include a wired remote instead of one of them new fangled wireless ones. Even the legendary remote that had the four big buttons that clicked when pushed would be accurate. Ah the memories...

    ^^^I once had a 19" JC Penney set with the "clicker" ultrasonic remote--I could jingle my keys to make it change channels.
