The Founder Series is the first new range of speakers released by Canadian corp Paradigm since founder Scott Bagby returned in 2019 – which explains the name.

hcc_recommendedJon Thompson once wondered if he'd ever see a new universal disc-spinner – Reavon's UBR-X200 therefore feels like a breath of fresh air, despite one or two missed tricks

2021 hasn't been a good year for many things but it's been a cracker for 4K Blu-ray. A wealth of titles has already been released, and the run up to Christmas promises a bumper crop, including those from fan-fave label Criterion, which is entering the 4K disc space with some real gems.

Not content with a user base of 53million devices, Roku accelerates its migration from media player OS to smart TV technology, taking up residence in this affordable line of 4K flatscreens from TCL. TCL has actually launched two Roku models in the UK, the entry-level RP520K series, and the RP620K reviewed here, replete with Dolby Vision HDR and a higher-spec video processor.

hccbestbuybadgev3The world's first 16-channel soundbar system leaves John Archer ducking for cover

More and more soundbars these days – high-end ones, anyway – stretch the soundbar definition to breaking point by comprising much more than just a single speaker unit that sits under your telly.
