BEOPLAY X SAINT LAURENT Yves Saint Laurent is enjoying a long love affair with tech, lending its powerhouse name to everything from USB chargers to boomboxes. And now it has expanded its collaboration with Beoplay, bringing its ‘none more black’ look to the collection, which includes the Beoplay A9 home speaker and the dinky A1 Bluetooth, a favourite of ours for soundtracking gatherings in the garden. In terms of tech, nothing has been tinkered with on these stunning speakers – the changes are aesthetic, with the Saint Laurent logo emblazoned across the back of the powerful A9 free-standing speaker, and a high-gloss version splashed across the aluminium grill of the dust- and splash-resistant A1. The A9 also features solid anodised mirror black aluminium legs, and supports AirPlay 2 and Chromecast built-in.…

editor’s letter

We love putting together our 101 Gadgets You Can’t Live Without list each year – it’s so broad that we can cast a colossally wide net when we start planning. If you think the 101 gadgets (p28) that make it in is a lot, you should see the longlist… As ever, we’re looking for the technology that you’ll never want to be without once you’ve tried it – things that are such obvious and instant upgrades, you’ll wonder why no one had told you about them sooner. (Sorry, that’s on us.) And we didn’t even have to include 5G and 8K gear in there because we’ve covered it elsewhere in the issue. You know you’re living in the future when the numbers next to the letter keep ticking up. We’ve got a…

1 SAMSUNG THE WALL LUXURY • £TBC, samsung.com Back in January 2018, Samsung unveiled The Wall, a 4K MicroLED TV that was not only massive (146 inches), it was also modular – meaning it could be pulled apart and pieced back together in any number of elaborate ways, for a fluid yet flexible viewing experience. Well, the South Korean giant has now aced that panel with a Luxury version, the top-end configuration of which is an 8K colossus measuring 192 inches. While huge screens of the past have tended to suffer from pallid visuals, the Wall Luxury has no such worries – its cutting-edge MicroLED technology delivers exceptional brightness (up to 2,000 nits), and it’s vivid, with lifelike colours and the blackest of blacks. And this isn’t only meant for enhancing your favourite…
