August 2009 issue
The August 2009 issue of What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision is on sale now, packed with exclusive reviews of all the latest hi-fi and home cinema kit

What a cracking issue we have in store for you this month! We kick off with an exclusive First Test of Naim's extraordinarily clever NaimUniti, a one-box CD/wi-fi/DAB receiver with internet radio capability and iPod connectivity.

That's something of a simplification, in truth, so to find out what this amazing device is really capable of, check out the full review in this month's First Tests section. We'll be bringing you a video review of the NaimUniti here on whathifi.com later this month.

You also have the chance to win a superb, five-star Cyrus CD 8 SE CD player and matching PSX-R power supply, worth £1700, in our fabulous August competition.

Hi-fi reviews galoreThat's not all, of course. We have a smorgasbord of other hot hi-fi reviews, including a close look at (and listen to) Cambridge Audio's much-anticipated new budget hi-fi range, in the shape of the Azur 650A stereo amp and Azur 650C CD player. Can they live up to the reputation set by their predecessors?

More after the break

Hi-fi afiicianados are further catered for with a Group Test of £450-£540 stereo speakers from the likes of Dali, Dynaudio, EB Acoustics, Epos, Klipsch and Mordaunt-Short.

And our Temptation section is packed with more heavenly hi-fi: new Pathos Adrenalin monoblocs, Plinius's Hiato integrated amplifier and Moon's CD3.3 CD player.

Oh, and did we mention our four-page feature on the future of hi-fi?

On the TV front, we've tested Panasonic's flagship wireless TX-P46Z1, plus the Panasonic TX-L32V10 and Sony KDL-40S5500, but most intriguingly of all the super-widescreen Philips Cinema 21:9 (56PFL9954H). This extraordinary TV breaks all the rules, as you'll discover.

50-52in TV SupertestThis month's TV Supertest is a must-read, too, with brand-new 50-52in models from LG, Panasonic, Samsung, Sony and Toshiba going head-to-head.

A 52in TV not big enough for you? Then how about a home cinema projector? Our Group Test of £2000 models sees Epson, Panasonic, Sanyo and Sony battling it out for top honours.

And if you're in the market for an all-in-one Blu-ray system to go with your new telly or projector, we've tested three such set-ups from LG, Panasonic and Samsung. 

Those more inclined to go the separates route for their home cinema system can check out our exclusive tests of Yamaha's budget RX-V365 AV receiver and B&W's MT-25 style speaker package.

Portable entertainmentOr maybe you want your home entertainment to be more compact? We can help there too, with a Roundup of portable, battery-powered iPod docks, plus our verdict on Yamaha's wireless PDX-50 and Geneva Labs' Model L iPod systems.

We also pit the Apple iPod Touch against Sony's new X-Series Walkman, and take a closer look at the new Apple iPhone 3G S and Sony PSP Go in our News section.

Finally, three readers take part in our The Big Question feature, in which they get to grips with the tricky subject of hi-fi system matching.

All this and more is in the bumper August 2009 issue of What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision, on sale today, July 1st. And don't forget to check out our video reviews and podcasts on whathifi.com.
