Naim touches multi-room WiFi streaming with a sleek box

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.

KEF revives its “Reference” speakers, we go ears-on

We’re not sure anyone really has a spare $28,000, but if they happen to have a budget close to that for speakers, KEF’s revived “reference” speaker could just be the best thing you’ll hear. It was for us.

Colour clarity: eyes-on with Samsung’s 2015 line-up

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.

Samsung Sound aims to be not just ahead, but part of the curve

Tired of the same boring flat speaker that we’ve had for yonks? Apparently Samsung is too, and is shaking things up this year with curves and soft flowing circular lines, building soundbars and speakers that look nothing like products you’ve seen from other vendors.

LG to make multi-room magic with soundbars and portability

It’s taken a few years for companies to pick up on the battleground that is multi-room audio, but that looks to be the next place LG will be playing for keeps, not just settling with one or two speakers, but going the full hearing hog this year.

Did LG accidentally spill the beans on Apple’s 8K plans?

Salespeople might well be informing the public on how Full HD has just been beaten by Ultra HD, but there’s another level beyond this, and Apple may well be jumping onto this sooner than we expect.

LG makes 4K Ultra HD a big priority in 2015

Ultra HD has been around for a couple of years, and in 2015 LG looks to make a big deal out of 4K, with big screens, big features, and a big look at how they deal with colour and light.
