hcc_recommendedLooking to drive a challenging pair of headphones with a portable player? Ed Selley thinks the chunky KANN Alpha might be what you need

The dedicated portable audio player market is not a massive one, and Korean brand Astell&Kern is the biggest fish in a relatively small pond. Its KANN series of players overlaps the more conventional A&Norma and A&Futura ranges, and is designed to be able to drive even very demanding headphones from a smallscale device.

hccbestbuybadgev3Humax teams up with Google to re-invent its Freeview Play PVR. Steve May investigates

Humax is hardly the most profligate of PVR makers. When it launches a set-top box, it tends to stick around, quietly serving its audience. Its new model, the Aura, is the company's first hardware overhaul in three years, assuming flagship status from its 2017-era FVP-5000T.

hccbestbuybadgev3Mark Craven enjoys music on the move – and late-night movies on his sofa – with B&W's smart-looking and sonically superior PX7 headphones

Claiming the top spot in B&W's headphone stable is the PX7, which replace the previous PX. An active noise-cancelling design with high-spec Bluetooth hookup and some neat features, they're arguably worth every penny of their £350 ticket.

hccbestbuybadgev3Manhattan's slick UHD-ready Freeview Play streamer is a cord cutter's delight, says Steve May

The Manhattan T3 is a 4K-enabled Freeview Play TV box for the streaming era. What sets it apart from Freeview set-top boxes of yore is that there's no hard drive onboard. This isn't a PVR in the millennial sense; it doesn't want to record.
