Home cinema sound comes in many guises, and at HCC we love them all. This issue we audition two traditional 5.1 speaker systems from M&K Sound and ATC, double up on deep bass with REL subwoofers, and live the high life with Bang & Olufsen’s debut Dolby Atmos soundbar. Amongst all that, we report on this year’s Bristol Hi-Fi Show where sound systems big and small competed for attention. Even video streaming services are getting in on the high-quality act. Netflix led the charge with its multichannel and Dolby Atmos content, now Apple TV+ (see p58) and – arriving this month – Disney+ (p114) are following suit. Both have pricing models that make Netflix seem expensive. There’s a streaming service war brewing. And it’s going to sound good. Editor…

huawei, devialet team up

Huawei has unveiled an all-in-one smart speaker, co-engineered with highly regarded French hi-fi maker Devialet. The Sound X is a bookshelf-sized omnidirectional music system with a high-gloss black finish and fabric base, clearly targeting the more premium end of the smart speaker market. This isn't Devialet’s first collaboration with a mass-market brand – the company previously partnered with Sky to produce the Sky Soundbox. Huawei, meanwhile, already has a long-standing partnership with optics specialist Leica for its smartphone cameras. The Sound X features six high-frequency drivers, coupled with Devialet’s ‘push-push’ woofer design. These dual woofers are visible from the cut-outs on either side of the enclosure, which allow you to see Devialet’s signature pumping action. The speaker also utilises Devialet’s Speaker Active Matching technology (SAM), which can be found in the brand’s upmarket Phantom…
