Packed full of features, Yamaha's first soundbase is a strong attempt at boosting tinny TV sound...
A gorgeous soundbar with an exciting and dynamic sound, if not quite the insight to be crowned a class-leader
A soundbar that marries decent design with good performance – you could do much worse than the Samsung HW-H550
Best soundbar up to £300, Awards 2014. Everything a budget soundbar should be: insightful, balanced and unobtrusive
An impressively specified receiver, but its sound performance leaves us wanting
It looks good and saves space, but the sound should be better
An endlessly entertaining receiver that’s full of character
Product of the Year, Awards 2014. A seriously good amp that balances muscle and subtlety with stacks of features at a great price. Sony raises the bar once again
Hugely thrilling sound and a beautiful design. Still our favourite soundbase.
A strong contender, but its weaknesses are highlighted by its rivals.
