Sony HT-XT3

The Sony HX-XT3 is a 2.1-channel sound base with two built-in subwoofers. Wi-fi and Bluetooth make it possible to stream music wirelessly from your home network. It's not cheap, but it does pack in a lot of functionality. Can this Sony justify 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...

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.

Bose CineMate 15

The Bose Cinemate 15 sound bar is a stubbier, smaller audio solution than many of its competitors, but Bose insists that this isn't detrimental to the overall sound. There's a separate subwoofer so, in theory, it should have plenty of power, but how...

Samsung HT-E6750 / HT-E6750W

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...

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...
