    Pinnacle ShowCenter 250HD review

    8  

    The Pinnacle’s ShowCenter 250HD isn’t a device that’s going to win any awards for design; its looks are best described as functional. Picture quality is good, even for standard definition content that’s upscaled, although there’s some delay between a video being chosen and the movie actually beginning to play

    Optoma Themescene HD3000 review

    It's no secret that the video processing built into most displays is a compromise, dictated by pricing. In this competitive marketplace, manufacturers will shave off as much cost as possible and advanced video processing is often the first to go

    Lemon MONOBLOCK LNBS review

    8  

    Although popular in other countries, monoblock LNBs haven't been adopted with such enthusiasm in the UK. A monoblock LNB provides two feedhorns, two LNBs and a DiSEqC switch all in one package

    Heed Questar MC review

    Heed Questar MC review

    8  

    Based in Hungary, Heed produces a nice line of products with a distinct slant towards the world of vinyl disc replay. The Questar is the basic phono stage of the range and is available in high gain (moving coil) and low gain (moving magnet) versions, each having specifically designed circuitry entirely based on discrete transistors.

    Logitech Harmony 785 review

    Logitech Harmony 785 review

    8  

    The original Harmony took the idea of 'macros' - sequences of commands for several devices - and developed it into an 'activity-based' remote control, where helpful software lets you configure the remote to do several tasks with one button-press.

    Monster HDTV Calibration Wizard review

    6  

    The default picture modes of your display often give results that may look acceptable in a brightly lit showroom, but leave a lot to be desired as far as home viewing is concerned. But it is possible to achieve a much better picture through calibration

    Gefen 2x4 HDMI review

    Gefen 2x4 HDMI review

    8  

    For those of us with the luxury of two or more HD Ready displays (screen and projector), connectivity can be perplexing. No home cinema receiver, set-top box or disc player has more than one HDMI output, so you're forced to use component video for one of the displays, or cable-swap.

    Asheridge PureLink HS-42A review

    One of the most annoying traits of the TV world in recent times has been the way sets are all falling over themselves to offer high definition handling, but then only provide a paltry amount of HDMI connections

    Optoma Themescene HD3000 review

    Upscaling standard definition video is all the rage at the moment as we attempt to squeeze more quality out of our DVDs and other sources while waiting for high definition discs to really take off

    Philex SLx Gold review

    Philex SLx Gold review

     

    The big attraction of the SLx is its size. Barely bigger than a Scart plug, the SLx transmitter and receiver units plug directly into the back of the source equipment and the secondary TV, respectively.

    IsoTek Sigmas review

     

    The damage that can be wrought on a sound system by poor mains shouldnot be underestimated. But, like so many of those 'intangibles' in audio (cables being the most obvious example)...

    Telemann 1650 review

    8  

    If you install satellite dishes on a regular basis, you'll require a measuring instrument more sophisticated than a simple signal strength meter. Telemann's 1650 is a complete digital satellite receiver, minus the video/audio decoder.
