4K TV for £450 and more – our September 2014 issue is out now

The Bush LE-39GBP-A is the budget 4K TV coming in at under £500 and we've put it to the test to see if its low price tag is an invitation to add it to your shortlist... or an indication you should look elsewhere.

We won't leave you hanging if you are on the hunt for a Ultra HD set though; we've brought together five models that'll set you back just over £2,000 to prove that 4K isn't necessarily an unaffordable fantasy.

But, of course, that's not all. This month's Supertest has seven pairs of headphones put in the spotlight – we all want to eke as much out of the listening experience as possible; which ones will be must-haves?

And there can be no disputing the fact that your hi-fi kit needs support. But a pair of stands and a rack can also improve your system's sound, so we round up some of the best that are currently on the market.
