shop to it

While PS VR lets you access the PS4 PlayStation Store via its cinema mode with the screen ‘projected’ in front of you, both the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift have more immersive shopping options. The Rift pops you into a relaxing brightly lit living room, complete with crackling Minecraft-style fire and beanbags as you scroll intuitively through the games on offer. Vive, on the other hand, loads up SteamVR, dropping you into space with your base stations floating in midair while you get down to the business of exploring the ultra-slick Steam Store. Familiar yet futuristic, it’s a joy to use.…

denon avr-x4300h av receiver

The Denon AVR-X4300H is a £950 nine-channel (9x200W) AV receiver that adds HEOS multi-room support, alongside Dolby Atmos and DTS: X 3D audio. The first AVR on the market to support HEOS speakers, it reinforces interoperability by bundling in a free HEOS 1. You can play a CD on a Blu-ray deck, select that input as the source on the AVR via the HEOS companion app, and then stream the music through both your cinema system and any connected HEOS speakers. Similarly, you can also share movie soundtracks, although Dolby/DTS bitstreams play out of sync with connected HEOS speakers.…

the overall winner is…

1st HEOS By Denon Price: £199/£499 URL: www.denon.co.uk T3 RATES: What you need from a wireless multi-room system is rock-solid reliability, and the HEOS delivers. It’s the easiest multi-zone system to configure, and has an excellent companion app. If your NAS is packed with 24-bit files and you have a penchant for high-res tunes on Tidal, then HEOS has your name written all over it. T3 SLATES: This is hardly the best-value wireless music system, and the Go Pack battery is an expensive add-on. The lack of Bluetooth aptX is a curious omission. T3 SAYS: For high-res multiroom and entertainment value, the second-gen HEOS had us dancing on the ceiling. 2nd Panasonic All Connected Price: £180/£330 URL: www.panasonic.co.uk T3 RATES: The SC-All05 is a cracking waterproof wireless speaker, and brilliant value, while the SC-All9 positively oozes sophistication.
