1 Onkyo mu­sic sys­tems £470, £400, £270 Onkyo’s CS-N775D, CS-N575D and CS-375D are the com­pany’s lat­est at­tempts to cor­ner the mu­sic sys­tem mar­ket. Top of the line is CS-N775D, which has Chrome­cast, Air­play and Blue­tooth, with sup­port for 24-bit/192khz hi-res files and DSD au­dio. All three are avail­able now. whf.cm/onky­ohi­fisys­tems 2 Mcin­tosh MCT80 £4495 Mcin­tosh has ex­panded its high-end range with the MCT80 CD player. There are coax­ial and op­ti­cal in­puts for 24-bit/192khz play­back, while Mcin­tosh claims the MCT80 can read au­dio data on a disc at the twice the nor­mal rate for more ac­cu­rate play­back. It will be avail­able in Novem­ber. whf.cm/mtc80cd­player 3 Sony 4K HDR pro­jec­tors £TBA Sony has deemed that one new 4K HDR pro­jec­tor is not enough, only three will do. The VPL-VW260ES is the most af­ford­able, but the head­line act is the VPL-VW760ES, a laser light-source de­sign with 2000 lu­mens of bright­ness, which comes in a com­pact de­sign. The pro­jec­tors are ex­pected to go on sale in Novem­ber. whf.cm/sony4khdr­pro­jec­tors 4 Wil­son Au­dio WAMM Mas­ter Chronosonic £700,000 Wil­son Au­dio’s non­cha­lantly ex­pen­sive WAMM Mas­ter Chronosonic is a mul­ti­mod­ule, phys­i­cally ad­justable loud­speaker. Wil­son claims that when the mod­ules are aligned to the lis­ten­ing po­si­tion­ing, the re­sult is a more life­like sound. But best be quick – only 70 pairs are be­ing made. whf.cm/wamm­loud­speaker 5 Pi­o­neer SC-LX502 £TBA Pi­o­neer’s SC-LX502 AV re­ceiver comes jam-packed with fea­tures, in­clud­ing Chrome­cast, Spo­tify and Deezer, and Blue­tooth and Air­play com­pat­i­bil­ity.
