ortofon century turntable

With the vinyl revolution in full swing, surely vintage ‘record parties’ will grow in popularity too. And being the distinguished host that you are, you don’t want your guests sneering at your sub-standard turntable, do you? Well, there’s no chance of that happening with this stylish spinner. To mark its 100th anniversary, Danish audio expert Ortofon has teamed up with Austria’s Pro-Ject to produce the Century, a record player based around the former company’s esteemed Classic SB, but with additional features. Built upon an elegant piano-black and silver aluminium chassis, it oozes sophistication without being showy. And the sound it produces is equally refined, thanks to the inclusion of a pre-installed Ortofon Concorde cartridge, pure silver coils that deliver superb conductivity, a precision-balanced TPE-damped aluminium platter and ultra-low-friction tonearm bearings.…

1 APPLE PRO 11 PRO MAX /11 From $1,749/$1,899, apple.com/au It’s new iPhone time, and Apple’s latest batch of high-end phones doesn’t disappoint. The list of upgrades isn’t that big compared with last year’s iPhone XS models (in a lot of ways, this feels like an XSS), but they still add up to a brilliant package, especially for people upgrading from an older model. The key new features are the screen and camera. The displays (5.8 inches on the 11 Pro, 6.5 inches on the 11 Pro Max) now feature OLED tech that beats your average TV, with a peak brightness of 1,200 nits, which gives you unbelievably HDR performance. This could seriously be the best device for watching movies that you own, especially with the new Dolby Atmos-enabled spatial speaker system. The cameras…

4 SONOS MOVE $617, sonos.com The Move is a feature-packed unit that’ll serve you well both indoors and out. With Sonos’s TruePlay tuning now automatic, rather than something you have to configure, it optimises the acoustics for wherever you’ve placed it. Both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa are ready and waiting to oblige your voice requests. IP56 weather resistance and 10 hours of continuous play from a single charge will give you peace of mind when you take the Move away from the house. And when the battery does finally give up the ghost, there’s a cool wireless dock for charging it up again. It still has Sonos’ multi-room tech (and a giant wireless range, so it works down the garden), but there’s Bluetooth as well (a Sonos first). T3 SAYS: Sonos’s first…

new breaking ground

You might not be able to guess by looking at its traditional exterior, but the e-tron is unlike any Audi that’s come before. In fact, the e-tron (from around $140,000) is the first all-electric car from the German brand, yet is designed to feel familiar to Audi drivers, helping to make the switch from fossil fuel less intimidating. Everything about audi’s new car is designed to help it power through the air smoothly, with bulky wing mirrors quickly ditched in favour of narrow, aerodynamic cameras. These beam images of what’s behind you to two interior OLED displays. It’s futuristic and takes some getting used to. The interior feels familiar, bedecked with typical Audi style. Not surprisingly, technology takes centre stage with a plethora of displays (some of which have haptic feedback), voice…
