Best of the Week - 02/05/08

It's three years this weekend since we had a new Star Wars movie, and you see?; You're not missing them one little bit. Things were going a bit wrong by the time we got to Revenge of WHSmith, so it was time to move on...

Meanwhile there's a new issue of What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision in the shops. In the June issue you'll find a group test of truly massive TVs from 57on up to 65in, the views of three readers on some hot home cinema topics of the moment, and a Supertest of the best CD players in the sub-£1000 arena.

  • Brought you our first impressions of the much anticipated Onkyo TX-SR606 AV receiver - yes, we've been out and bought one!.
  • Told you about new ways to enjoy TV and movies from Virgin Media and Apple
  • Shown you what all those Scarlet TV teasers are about
  • And given you our views on Grand Theft Auto IV
