Home Cinema Choice 240 on sale now!

From Dolby Atmos to bendable OLED, the return of Technics to 4K Blu-ray, we uncover all of the hottest technology and trends from this year's IFA Show and CEDIA Expo. And speaking of Atmos, we also put Onkyo's first Dolby Atmos-compatible AV receiver to the test to see how the next-gen audio format works in a home cinema environment.

Other kit on test includes Panasonic's sub-£500 TX-42AS60000 Smart TV, Parasound's jaw-dropping Halo A21 and A31 high-end amplifiers, a floorstanding speaker array from Brit brand Neat Acoustics, JL Audio's new 'entry-level' 12 inch subwoofer, Philips' cash-conscious 55PUS7809 Ambilight UHD/4K TV and the R-10B soundbar and subwoofer combi from Klipsch

Also in the issue: We find out how Hollywood studios have squandered years of 4K scanning; talk to Virgin Media about its new-look TiVo user interface; chat with director Gareth Edwards about bringing Godzilla back to the bigscreen and feel the full fury of the film's monstrous DTS-HD MA 7.1 soundtrack on Blu-ray; check out a stylish eight-seat cinema room that began life as an unused cellar; get to grips with the DemoPad smart control system; and take time out to ponder the merits of American AV deisgn and engineering...

Plus all the usual opinion, news, disc reviews and competitions. Enjoy the show.
