    Pure Avanti Flow review

    10  

    First, there was DAB. Broadcast over radio waves, it offered a reliable signal with excellent sound quality. Then came Internet Radio. It also offered great sound quality, but due to its reliance on servers and all the issues that can arise surrounding them, it was often frustratingly unreliable.

    Vita Audio R4 review

    Vita Audio R4 review

    10  

    Devices like the Arcam Solo Mini have shown that the electronics can be miniaturised and integrated with remarkably little quality loss. But with the R4, Vita Audio has gone one better and built the speakers into the box too. Can this neat unit follow the success of the R1 and R2 table radios?

    Yamaha YSP-40D review

    8  

    That surround sound adds another dimension to your enjoyment of movies is indisputable. Problem is, it also injects a helluva lot of speaker boxes into your living space. That’s not always domestically acceptable, which is why Yamaha has been pre-eminent in pushing the soundbar concept

    Gear4 Houseparty III review

    6  

    This latest Houseparty – we’re up to version III – has a wobbly, pop-out iPod tray, a remote control, a line-in so you can connect other audio sources, and a single USB out port, so you can sync the iPod with your Mac while docked

    Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin review

    The Zeppelin is an integrated iPod dock complete with digital amps and built-in speakers. The dock itself sits on a sturdy chrome outrigger that stands proud of a chrome bar and has a reassuringly sturdy feel when accessing the iPod’s functions

    We've seen a few sound servers before, including a direct ancestor of this new machine, but it's likely that the breed will be unfamiliar to at least a few folks reading this...

    Absolute Sounds ElectroKID review

    8  

    Depending on your viewpoint, the £3,740 ElectroKID system is either a serious and successful attempt at wringing the best possible sound out of an Apple iPod, or a rich audiophile's folly. Actually, it's both, and we should love it for being both.

    Accustic Arts TUBE-DAC II review

    8  

    During the time that high-sampling-rate, high-bit audio has been slowly penetrating the market, CD recording and replay standards have risen making one question what all the high-res fuss is about. In the practical sense of the terms, this is high resolution.
