On the test bench this month is Sony’s KD-65XG9505, a 65in flagship 4K LED LCD TV promising HDR fireworks, plus: a UK-exclusive audition of Marantz’s new nine-channel SR6014 AV receiver; a 5.1 Polk Audio Signature E Series array; JVC’s DLA-N5 native 4K projector; Panasonic’s SC-HTB900 Dolby Atmos soundbar; the Eole 4 sub/sat system from Cabasse; NAD’s M10 streaming amplifier, and more. Whatever your budget, we’ve got you covered. On the software side, we check out new Blu-ray and 4K releases including Men in Black: International, Brightburn and X-Men: Dark Phoenix. We also chart Godzilla’s 65-year history through film and TV, and set our subwoofers to stun with the 4K BD of Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Elsewhere, we report on the UHD Alliance’s pursuit of picture purity with Filmmaker Mode, marvel at a basement cinema room combining aesthetic flair with state-of-the-art AV, get a tour of a reader’s dedicated movie den, and wonder if Netflix’s days are numbered… Plus all the usual opinions, news, disc reviews and more.
