Samsung QLED TV! Ultra HD Blu-ray ! JVC Z1 laser projector! Dolby shakes up TV audio! It's all here!

Samsung's much-heralded 'QLED' TV tech sets out to make a dazzling debut with this month's cover star. The brand's new 65in QE65Q9F 4K HDR flatscreen certainly looks big, bright and beautiful, but is it really the OLED killer that Samsung has been touting it as?

We also have another 'high-end hero' for you to consider for your dedicated movie den: JVC's native 4K DLA-Z1 laser projector. If you've got a spare £35,000 burning a hole in your wallet and a hankering for large-scale 4K home cinema, then this could well be the projector you've been dreaming of.

One year on from its launch, we give our verdict on Ultra HD Blu-ray. Looking at everything from televisions and disc players to projectors and the Ultra HD Blu-ray discs themselves, we reveal whether or not the 4K format has lived up to its promises.

Also: Dolby speaks exclusively to HCC about its plans to shake up the TV audio market; LG spills the beans on its new SJ9 Dolby Atmos soundbar; We chat to the audio engineers who remixed Pink Floyd using cutting-edge 3D audio processing for a new exhibition; Polk's slimmed-down Signature Series 5.1 loudspeaker array; Sonos' multiroom-enabled Playbase; Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa voice-control; Nintendo's innovative Switch gaming console; REL's S/5 SHO premium twin-driver 12in subwoofer; plus all of the usual news, opinion, competitions and Blu-ray/DVD reviews.
