Sonos may dominate the world of multi-room audio, but it’s not the only player, and when it comes to high-end audio, BlueSound is about to have some competition, as Naim joins in with its WiFi box.

Picking a TV this year is going to be particularly interesting for consumers looking to plonk money down on a new purchase, and with Samsung showing its might in LCD development, the choice between OLED and LCD is now harder than ever.
