Review: Marshall Monitor headphones

If you’ve ever played in a rock band in your teens, or even if you do now, you know the “Marshall” name. It’s a brand that practically screams rock, and while it’s normally known for amplifiers, it is now bringing its amped-up style to headphones.

Download dilemma: dealing with high-res audio when you’re living in Australia

If the idea of high resolution sound at home or on the go makes your eyes light up and your ears sing praises, great news: more devices are coming that support this technology. Bad news, though, because if you live in Australia, the pickings are slim.

4K films head to new Sony UHD TV owners, but only for a limited time

The biggest problem owners of Ultra HD TVs have right now is the lack of content. There is pretty much an absence of 4K media in Australia at the moment, but if you’re thinking of buying a Sony UHD TV, you’ll have one on the rest of us.

Dolby Atmos coming to stores this year through Onkyo, content less so

Australia gets most of the big blockbusters, but if you look at how many cinemas we have that support Dolby’s totally immersive audio format, the number is very small. But you mightn’t have to worry about that, as Dolby’s Atmos format comes home.
