Music downloads could be no more by 2020

Nielsen, an American data company, has reported that sales of music downloads have fallen by 42 per cent in the US. If that trend continues, it's likely that the market for downloads could flatline in 2020, with music streaming services such as Spotify and Tidal expected to take its place.

Reviews

"It’s still remarkable that SoundMagic finds ways to implement improvements without bumping up the price"

SoundMagic E10C

Every year SoundMagic revises its E10 in-ears and every year they get that bit better. The latest version features a new three-button remote that makes it easier to switch between iOS and Android devices. The sound, as before, is a great mix of energy, agility and clarity. They remain our go-to budget headphones.

"The Sony KDL-32WD603 delivers a natural, detailed and well balanced screen for its price"

Sony KDL-32WD603

This small-screen Sony doesn't boast 4K, it's not even a Full HD set and yet it still delivers a great performance. The picture is so natural and well balanced that it seems to churlish to argue about the pixel count. For a small TV on a budget, this is our top choice.

"Libratone has gone back to basics with a range that’s both more affordable and Bluetooth-focused"

Libratone ONE Click

Libratone tends to produce bold-looking speakers and it doesn't disappoint with the ONE Click. The Click has a book-shaped metal mesh chassis with a removable rubber frame that caters for two interchangeable handles: a hook for hanging it up, and a carry strap for, well, carrying.

The sound is clear, detailed and expansive and although it could benefit from better timing, it is a decent performer.
