Home Cinema Week 2021 has now ended, but the AV-dedicated reviews and features produced for the event live on! You'll find links to each piece at the bottom of this page, and we're leaving the original intro here for those who want to enjoy Home Cinema Week as-live.
The only trouble with weekends is that they have to come to an end. Fortunately, we’ve got something pretty special lined up for you this week. It’s Home Cinema Week on What Hi-Fi? and it started with a bang on Monday 5th July and runs all the way to Sunday 11th.
That’s seven days packed full of the finest AV-centric content around. We're going to help you squeeze even more performance from your current home cinema set-up (or home theater for our friends in the US) and perhaps even suggest an upgrade or two.
So, what fun do we have lined up for you? Reviews. Lots of reviews.
We kicked things off with Sony's very latest native 4K projector, blown your socks off with a seriously big surround package from Dynaudio and cranked up the dial on a very high-specced JBL AV receiver – and that's just a handful of the highlights.
You can also expect ultra-short-throw projectors, Dolby Atmos headphones made for TV viewing and a seriously impressive 8K TV too.
And there's more! We'll get technical with codecs and cables; share tonnes of our favourite films, scenes and discs to push your kit to its limit; put together some complete home cinema systems to recommend and show you how to get the best performance possible out of your AVR.
Plus we've got plenty of suggestions of easy ways to upgrade your system no matter your budget, and if you've nothing left to try then how about some inspiration with a look at some of the cleverest home cinema custom installs we've ever seen?
All of that and more will be, and has been, making its way onto Whathifi.com from Monday. Stay tuned to this page and we'll make sure we keep a list of every Home Cinema Week gem that we publish. Now, grab your popcorn and nip to the loo, the main feature is finally here...
While you're waiting, here are the best home cinema deals around.
These are the best projectors we've ever tested.
