The Best of the Week - 27/07/07

  • Brought you news of KEF's superbly cute little Picoforte iPod systems
  • Wondered what Yamaha's playing at with its new HD-audio-free receivers
  • Started drooling over the prospect of Denon's first Blu-ray player and Heroes on HD DVD
  • Shuddered at just how much of a mess CBS and Paramount might make of a sci-fi icon when they launch the original Star Trek series on HD DVD, complete with new effects, a rerecorded theme tune and remastered boldly going.
  • And had our ears pounded by the Rough Trade East PA system about a foot away as we took pictures of New Young Pony Club in action at the shop's launch party
