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...

Samsung Home Cinema Blu-Ray HT-F9750W

Samsung’s top home theatre system is, for the asking price, a huge step up from the speakers inside your TV. It’s great for surround-sound Blu-rays, and the Smart Hub can liven up an otherwise dumb television. You’ll get better sound from a proper home...

Slingbox M1

With the addition of built-in WiFi and a $30 price cut, the M1 is a solid replacement for the Slingbox 350. While it does still have a higher upfront cost than competing products, it can also stream content that no other device can -- namely, live...

Optoma HD28DSE

Is this the most detailed Full HD image from a budget projector? Absolutely. And that's all down to Darbee Visual Presence video processing tech, though this single-chip DLP beamer lacks the tools for an easy set-up.

Sony BDVN7100W

Sony's feature-packed 5.1 system eschews the tallboy speakers favoured by so many of its rivals for a less imposing design. The neat, gloss-back satellites stand 455mm tall and can be perched on shelves or furniture.

Samsung HT-E6750 / HT-E6750W

In terms of sound quality, all-in-one home cinema systems rarely live up to the standard of separates. But for its latest flagship system, Samsung has turned to the technology of yesteryear in a bid to redress the balance.

Samsung’s chic soundbar marries a busy feature list with impressive performance, but bear in mind that you can get even better sound quality for similar money.

Samsung HW-H7500

Samsung spoke to CNET at the IFA conference in Berlin last week, confirming the H7500 for an Australian launch with a price of AU$899, although with no firm timing.

LG LHB725

The LG LHB725 is competitively priced for a 3D-capable Blu-ray home cinema system - especially considering its raft of extra features such as multiroom audio. The Teufel Concept E costs £50 less, but the Smart TV functionality and multitude of inputs...

Philips Fidelio BTS7000

As a technical doofus I really struggled to connect these. I don't think "wireless" gives you the correct impression as I've had to introduce a multi plug extension cable to the TV area because these speakers have to be plugged in. I also had to buy a...

Samsung HT-J7750

The HT-J7750W is a fine example of the one-box system genre, boasting a plethora of features, sleek styling and vibrant, room-filling sound – as long as you’re willing to overlook the lightweight speaker construction and so-so bass performance.

Sony HTST7

I think that sound bars fall into two main categories. The first is simply getting better sound than your TV. Flat panels have pretty awful sound, so adding on a $250 sound bar can make a sizable improvement. The second is trying to provide high...
