Earlier this month rumours circulated that Samsung was about to buy Focal. Instead, Samsung has announced a takeover of US audio company Harman International.
JBL is has updated its M2 Master and 4425 professional studio monitors, with the JBL 4367 and 4429 respectively. You'll need plenty of dosh to afford them, though.
Both benefit from an improved cabinet, as well as new crossover/woofers and sport some distinctly retro looks. The 4367s cost £11,800, while the 4429s can be had for just £5,800.
The late David Bowie's personal record player has sold at auction for over a quarter of a million pounds.

"Given a good source, it delivers an immensely likeable sound, one that combines clarity and subtlety superbly"
What strikes you about Copland's DAC 215 is how clean and pristine it looks. Once it gets going, you can't forget how good it sounds either.
It boasts an "open, clean and precise presentation". It's easy to use too and, given a good source, offers a pleasurable listening experience.

"A 4K HDR screen in this size, for such an appealing price is well worth looking out for"
Unlike some other budget 4K TVs we've seen, this Philips has HDR, which helps produce a bright and punchy colour palette. It also has ambilight, which is always fun.
However, it falls short elsewhere. Black depth could be better, there aren't many catch-up services and there's no HDR support for Netflix.
So while it's very good in places, it's not enough to get five stars.

"The Fire HD 8 is one of the least compromised budget tablets out there"
Amazon's Fire HD 8 is a great budget tablet, but you'll need a Prime subscription to get the most out of it.
It has a wealth of content and features, and while it has some compromises (a less than sharp screen, poor cameras), it's the least compromised in the budget tablet arena.
