In this work, a novel lattice reduction (LR) precoding method is proposed. The technique combines conventional LR precoding with a method of reducing the singular value coefficients of the LR-reduced basis matrix. The performance of the new technique was comparable to that of sphere encoding, while its complexity was lower than that of other sub-optimal methods.
