hccbestbuybadgev3JVC has gone native (4K) with its 'mainstream' D-ILA projectors. John Archer dims the lights and drools

JVC's D-ILA home cinema projectors have almost always been brilliant. What they haven't typically been up to recently, though, is natively 4K – and its first native 4K home cinema model was the £35,000 Z1 laser PJ, which I'm almost certain you didn't buy. More affordable models long relied on proprietary e-Shift technology to deliver a pseudo 4K effect by passing HD images through two fractionally offset 1080p imaging chips.

Mark Craven takes this revamped, 5.1 sub/sat style system for a spin. Literally

Home cinema speakers come in different flavours, all with a target audience in mind. You only have to look at Cabasse's new Eole 4 system, with its diminutive satellite enclosures, slim-line subwoofer and its white finish (black is an alternative) to know it's intended for living room systems where discretion is vital.
