Home Cinema Choice 255 on sale now!

2015's best AV kit! Movie Awards! Netflix vs Amazon Prime! Reader's rooms revisited! It's all here!

Our yearbook special rounds up the best home cinema gear available in an extended reviews section. From 4K TVs to next-gen AV receivers, speaker systems, projectors, soundbars, media players, BD spinners, accessories and more, we've left no stone unturned in bringing you the buyer's guide.

Of course, there's no point in having a killer home cinema system without having the best discs to play on it. Our annual Movie Awards is here to help, celebrating the year's must-own Blu-ray and DVD releases.

And with binge-watching having become a national obsession, we're putting Netflix and Amazon Video to the test in order to decide which streaming service is a home cinema must-have.

We're also giving one lucky reader the chance to win a Cambridge Audio CXU universal Blu-ray player worth £900! 

Also in the issue: Hands-on with Sony's new pro-grade 4K laser projector; Sky reinvents premium pay TV; we visit Bang & Olufsen's HQ to check out its latest high-end loudspeaker; four of our favourite readers' movie rooms; plus all the usual opinion, news, disc reviews and competitions. Enjoy the show.
