OLED 4K TV

SONY A8F SE­RIES

Sony’s next-gen 4K HDR TV looks fan­tas­tic thanks to its OLED dis­play and ad­vanced im­age pro­cess­ing. Be­cause of in­ge­nious tech that uses the screen it­self as a speaker, it also sounds su­perb. From $3,999, sony.com.au

TOP-END 4K TV

LG SIG­NA­TURE W7

This is the most amaz­ing-look­ing 4K HDR TV we’ve ever seen at just 2.57mm thick (it at­taches to the wall us­ing mag­nets!), and the im­age qual­ity is sim­ply fan­tas­tic too. A shape of what’s to come.

VALUE 4K BLU-RAY PLAYER

XBOX ONE S

PORTABLE GAMES CON­SOLE

NIN­TENDO SWITCH

Not the most pow­er­ful cur­rent-gen con­sole, but with Nin­tendo’s leg­endary games line-up and the flex­i­bil­ity to play in stacks of dif­fer­ent con­trol con­fig­u­ra­tions, it’s the best portable ma­chine you can buy. $469, nin­tendo.com.au
