More after the break


"The Audiolab M-DAC+ gets an awful lot right – so much, in fact, it comfortably justifies its ‘+’ designation"

Audiolab M-DAC+

The M-DAC+ replaces a longtime favourite of ours, the M-DAC, and does so with aplomb. The 'Plus' name is merited whether it's the build quality of the smart, compact casework or the features included within it. Sound quality is up there with the best. Our only issue is that it could use a touch more attack, but that's just nitpicking.

"It has everything we want: a stunning picture, gorgeous design, great sound, and one eye on the horizon"


LG is on a great run with its current range of OLED TVs, and the OLED65G6V boasts a stunning picture, great design and impressive sound. The £6000 price is the only black mark against it, as the LG OLED65E6V offers the same picture performance for a £1000 less. It's nonetheless an impressive statement from the South Korean manufacturer.

"If you’re keen to get the big screen experience for under £500, you could just find the Epson EH-TW5300 scratches that itch"

Epson EH-TW5300

This budget projector from Epson offers a big picture without draining your bank account. Some aspects, such as black levels, detail and picture noise could be better, but the tradeoff is a bright picture, well judged colours and its £500 price.
