Yamaha YSP-2500 Soundbar Review

Jul 27 2015 18:03 | normal in Reviews

TVs are getting thinner and thinner, and yet sound still has to come from somewhere. This means built in speakers are often disappointing and helps explain why soundbar speakers are becoming increasingly popular. Not only are they living room / partner friendly, but also can add a great depth of sound to match the big pictures on modern televisions.

Yamaha was one of the pioneers in this field, and have a fine pedigree, so what is the YSP-2500 sound projector like?

Sony Launch Two Class Leading Compact Cameras

Jun 11 2015 10:36 | normal in News

It's no secret that the digital compact camera is suffering a slow death as more and more people use their mobile phones to take snaps. It's fair to say that many top end mobiles can take better photos than the compact cameras they're replacing.

The top end of digital compacts do continue to prosper though, offering a combination of bigger sensors, better lenses and faster auto-focus which entice enthusiasts and professionals alike. That's why we're excited that Sony has launched two new RX series cameras.
