And if we were rediscovering our soft spot for Jamo following the stereo performance of its S 805 speakers, we’ve grown only fonder having spent a good while in the company of this S 807 HCS package.”

SONY VPL-VW760ES 4K HDR LASER PROJECTOR

“Picture settings can have a massive impact on the image of a projector or television. It can be tempting to judge the image quality of a projector or tv in such areas as colour production or shadow detail, when more often than not the display merely needs proper calibration.

Measurements were performed with an i1Pro 2 Spectroradiometer and/or x-rite display 3 Pro colourimeter, profiled with the i1Pro 2. Both meters were tripod mounted, and measurements were taken directly taken from a 140” 16.9 Screen Technics screen.”

EMOTIVA AIRMOTIV T2 FLOOR STANDING AND C2 CENTER CHANNEL LOUDSPEAKER REVIEW

“Another thing that impressed me about the T2s was the smooth integration between drivers. There is no audible clue as to where one driver hands off to another. In other words, there is no audible “speed difference” between the drivers. I am particularly impressed with the transition from the cone midrange to the ribbon tweeter. I had expected that the fast tweeter would be audibly distinguishable from the (theoretically) slower midrange cone, but I was mistaken. They seem to blend perfectly.”

Who knows when – or even if – the prices of native 4K projectors will come down to more affordable levels? But for now, the £5200 Sony VPL-VW260ES represents the most affordable end of the spectrum, and makes a strong argument for true-not-faux 4K.”

TCL 6 series (2018 Roku TV) Review

Having more dimming zones doesn’t necessarily mean better image quality, but it can help. That’s because smaller, more numerous zones allow the image to light up (and dim) more precisely, better separating the parts of the image that should be brighter from the parts that should be darker. It helps eliminate “blooming,” where a bright area can lighten one that should be dark. See picture quality for more on how it performs.”

Roku Streaming Stick+ Review

Read Here

 

 

The Streaming Stick+’s elongated design sticks out a bit awkwardly when placed in either rear or side-mounted HDMI inputs, but its design is remarkably small considering how much power it packs. It draws its juice from almost any TV USB port, saving most people the bother of attaching it to the mains. The USB connection cable is fitted with a powerful Wi-Fi receiver too, which gets a good bar or two more Wi-Fi strength from distant routers than any rival device I’ve used.”

The NAD T 777 V3 AV Surround Sound Receiver can easily compete with and replace separates. It will drive demanding speakers and has more than enough headroom to play loud without distortion.
