A fair amount of the pleasure of owning a record deck comes from being able to leave it out in your living room, showing off to visitors that you do, too, enjoy modern audio trends such as paying £20 for reissued albums you had on CD in the Eighties.
'HomePod mini is the ultimate smart speaker for anyone with an Apple device. It works effortlessly with iPhone to hand off music, answer calls, or deliver personalised listening suggestions, elevates the sound from Apple TV, plays music from a Mac, and so much more,' he said.
Want to find the best AV receiver for the money? I've tested some of the most popular big-black-box options from the major brands, and the feature sets, connectivity options and performance levels in a home cinema are impressively high in this middling price range. From Dolby Atmos to Wi-Fi music streaming to voice control -- and high-quality audio -- these AV receiver models have everything a home theater enthusiast needs.
It's the first vinyl deck equipped with AptX HD Bluetooth, which sounds far, far better than normal Bluetooth - so you can transmit sound wirelessly to speakers, or (better still) to a pair of wireless headphones, and enjoy proper hi-fi sound.
'She had no humour in her voice at all': Jack was interviewing Amy for his new podcast series, but he made the rookie mistake of forgetting to press record. The musician was so shocked by the error that she initially thought Jack was trying to prank her
The Yamaha RX-V6A may offer a fresh look at AV receiver design with futuristic edges, but it also doesn't skimp on sound quality. The RX-V6A could make you forget about ever visiting a cinema again, and it's no slouch with music, either. It offers Wi-Fi connectivity, AirPlay 2, Spotify Connect, Bluetooth and Yamaha's MusicCast system for streaming from your devices. It's the most future-proof option of this roundup so far, with 8K pass-through and VRR for compatibility with the .
4K HDR compatibility You want to make sure your new receiver can keep up with the latest TVs and video gear. Standards do change all the time, but the bare minimum right now is support for HDR and Dolby Vision (at least HDMI version 2.0 or better). All of these models support 4K and HDR video. 8K is coming, eventually, but most recorded content is still going to be in 1080p or even worse for many, many years. If future-proofing is a concern for you, the Yamaha RX-V6A and Denon AVR-S960H offer 8K compatibility.

We've all been there! Fox FM announcer Byron Cooke wrote on Instagram: 'I know of an audio producer on his first day on the job… his breakfast show interviewed the Rolling Stones in their hotel room. He realised when he gets back to station it hadn't recorded'
The annual launch event is nearly one month later than normal and comes as the coronavirus pandemic has disrupted Apple's well-oiled machine for designing and churning out its biggest-selling product.
He said: '[Sony Music] gave me 45 minutes, which was great. It was a great interview, I was so happy with it. But at the end of the interview when I went to say goodbye, I went to stop the recording… I never pressed record on the whole interview.'

Echo Studio is Amazon's latest attempt at a ‘hi-fi' Echo device, and it's certainly a burly piece of kit. It's bigger even than Apple's distinctly porky HomePod - and armed with 330w of power and a 5.25in bass driver.
It's blisteringly loud, with two midrange speakers firing left and right, and while it won't match a ‘proper' stereo (ie a boring old set-up with a player and two speakers), it outperforms most of the polite little plant pots sold as smart speakers with contemptuous ease.

£189.99, It's somehow difficult to take voice-controlled smart speakers seriously as music players. It might be because you're asking them to play Pink Floyd one second, and then asking them to time your boiled egg.
As many HDMI inputs as you can afford With most televisions and set-top boxes supporting HDMI, you should buy a receiver that has as many of these inputs and outputs as possible. Front-mounted HDMI ports are kind of like an appendix -- unneeded, because most users don't hot-plug HDMI devices -- making the number of rear inputs what's most important (how else are you going to connect your Blu-ray player, Nintendo Switch, vivaldi audio soundbar and all your other devices?). The Sony and Onkyo in this roundup both have six rear-mounted HDMI ports while the Denon and Yamaha go one better with seven. If you want to connect two different displays -- a TV and a projector for example -- all but the Yamaha offer a second HDMI output. You should also be sure you have an extra HDMI cable or two on hand -- these things are like the second sock of a pair in that you can never find them when you need them.
