hccrefstatusbadgeSamsung joins the UST PJ party with its feature-packed LSP9T. Steve Withers bathes in the glow of its triple-laser light source

Samsung probably isn't the first name that springs to mind when thinking about projectors, but based on the company's new LSP9T 4K HDR beamer that might be about to change. Christened 'The Premiere', the brand backs the hyperbole with a seriously impressive set of specs that includes a three-colour laser light source, ultra-short-throw (UST) optics, beefy sound system, built-in tuners, and full Tizen smart platform.

hcchighreccomendJohn Archer explains why Sony's latest mid-range LED LCD TV is arguably better for next-gen console gamers than its flagship models

While the original PS4 and Xbox One consoles trailed behind TV technology when they first came out, the Xbox Series X and PS5 are running ahead of most 2020 TVs. Graphics features such as 4K at 120Hz, variable refresh rates and automatic low latency mode switching have caught the vast majority of this year's displays on the hop, including many of Sony's own models. Oddly, the only game-friendly exception in its range isn't some high-flying, megabucks flagship, but the mid-range XH9005 series.

hcc_recommendedKlipsch's SPL-150 subwoofer is certainly big, but is it clever? And does that really matter when this bass beast sells for just £850? Richard Stevenson investigates

Hold the phone, is that a 15in subwoofer with a 400W amplifier for less than £1,000? I believe it is, and quickly scrolling to the SPL-150's entry on Klipsch's website leaves little room for product positioning ambiguity. Under the heading 'Badass Bass', is the statement: 'We've been pissing off your neighbours since 1946 – why stop now?' I love it already.

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.
