Harman Kardon Omni 10

You'll love watching the built in sub at work on the back of this little unit. For a little unit it has loads of base and was better than all of the other similarly priced units I tested in branch. I honestly can't fault the sound quality. It looks and...

Harman-Kardon OMNI 20

Expecting the 5.1 output with the new app this summer. Great speakers. I have placed three of them in the living room and use Spotify from my iPad or iPhone to stream music. Does work well with Apple TV as well.

Naim Audio ND5 XS Network Player

Its ability to cope with 24-bit/192kHz streams future-proofs it for some considerable time and allows the lovers of hi-res to pursue their studio-master fix. The n-Stream app adds all the convenience to the package for which one could ask. In an...

LG Music FLOW H3 NP8340

Overall, the LG Music Flow H3 is a decent discrete wireless speaker that also has an attractive design. It produces good sound quality and its high-definition audio support sets it apart from its rivals although it doesn’t make a lot of difference with...

Cyrus Lyric 09

It sits somewhere between traditional hi-fi and smart streamer, but the Lyric 09 sounds so good it hardly matters

Rega DAC-R

If you’re going to use the Rega DAC-R with anything other than the USB input you’ll end up with one of the best sounding number-crunchers £600 will buy. It’s energetic, yet has enough in the way of subtlety to impress. But if you’re going to use USB...

Sharp SD-AT1000H

I was sad when I had to take the Sharp SD-WH1000U WHRAP gear out of my system and return all of it to the case for transport across the country for other ears to enjoy. I loved its flexibility and ease of transition from format to format, not to...

Elsewhere the system musters 2 x 65W power output, and uses a ‘simple and straight’ circuit design to keep interference to an absolute minimum.

Panasonic SC-BTT505

With their cost-cutting designs and compromised performance, all-in-one systems are usually seen as the poor relation of separates. But every once in a while a one-box system comes along that more discerning listeners can get on board with. The...

Panasonic SC-BTT590

All-in-one systems are usually designed for maximum convenience and minimum cost, often with scant regard for sound quality. But Panasonic's new-for-2012 SC-BTT590 is a different kettle of fish – a one-box Blu-ray system that puts the emphasis on...
