System with the X factor • With True X, Yamaha confounds expectations and delivers a truly immersive Dolby Atmos system that’s a doddle to use. It features a slender soundbar and subwoofer combo able to orchestrate soundtracks high and wide, plus small wireless rears that pound like a howitzer.
Push, pull and pulverise • Perlisten was formed in 2016 by a group of audio engineers, its first products coming to market in 2020. And those four years of R&D seem to have been well spent, resulting in a portfolio of rather interesting and highly regarded high-end loudspeakers and subwoofers. The brand also boasts the accolade of being the first to have speaker products awarded THX Dominus certification for large rooms. It means business.
Space invader • Sony is banking the farm on 360 Spatial Sound Mapping. A brilliant post-processing innovation, it allows for all manner of virtual enhancements to the traditional home cinema speaker layout, and is the big feature attraction of its new TA-AN1000 multichannel amp.
Light fantastic • The specification of BenQ's W4000i projector is certainly enticing. There's 4K HDR playback (including, unusually, HDR10+), a 3,200 Lumens brightness claim, contrast-enhancing dynamic iris, Android TV smarts, and factory calibration to the DCI-P3 colour standard. At £2,999, it looks like a potential home cinema bargain.
