Once again, it seems that predictions of the demise of physical disc sales have been exaggerated. According to the latest figures released by industry body BASE (the British Association for Screen Entertainment), there is no slow down in the market, despite the proliferation of streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime. What's more, sales of physical media continue to seriously out-muscle digital downloads – and DVD still rules the roost.

From the same range as JBL's multichannel-capable Bar 5.1, only less ambitious, comes the Bar Studio. A subwoofer-free, 2.0-channel design aimed at mid-size flatscreen owners, it arrives in the UK with a £150 ticket, meaning it joins an already crowded market of budget 'bars.

The latest Marvel movie to arrive on 4K Blu-ray gives us our first glimpse of the Black Panther's home world of Wakanda, after the character debuted in Captain America: Civil War. A huge hit at the box office, and an equally huge discussion point on social media due to its almost exclusive focus on black characters, it's ultimately a bit hit-and-miss from a simple filmmaking perspective.

Black level performance, colour vibrancy and raw resolution are widely recognised as the holy trinity of home cinema projection, and with the 4K HDR-capable UHZ65, Optoma comes close to giving movie fans a suitably religious experience.

Soundbars continue to be the home entertainment sound system of choice for most people. Even those with a serious multichannel setup may well have a soundbar in another room to bolster a TV without the fuss of amps and speakers. But not all claim to create a surround sound experience – a feature which tops the spec sheet of Samsung's HW-N650.
