Sony high-end 4K flatscreen! 40 years of Star Wars! Quad S Series speakers! IMAX VR! It's all here!

In the month that Marvel's Doctor Strange makes its Blu-ray debut, Sony's KD-55XE9305 high-end 4K TV delivers a spellbinding demonstration of the power of High Dynamic Range technology, and Epson's magical mid-range EH-TW6700 projector conjures up a compelling case for sticking with Full HD cinema. Meanwhile, Quad's handsome S Series 5.0 standmount loudspeaker array proves to be a satisfyingly smooth all-rounder.
