Sony STR-DN1070
REVIEW

Sony STR-DN1070

Lack of Atmos is more than eclipsed by excellent sound quality, making the Sony STR-DN1070 one of the best receivers at this price.

Amazon Fire TV
REVIEW

Amazon Fire TV ( 2015)

The 2015 Fire TV is a potent streamer with 4K capability, voice search and a solid selection of UK apps, but it tries too hard to serve up Amazon's own TV shows and movies.

Sky Now TV Box
REVIEW

Sky Now TV Box ( 2015)

Sky's new Now TV box is a dirt-cheap way to get on-demand movies and TV shows from Sky and UK terrestrial channels, but heavy-duty streamers will find the lack of Netflix and Amazon apps frustrating.

Electric Jukebox
EDITORS' TAKE

Electric Jukebox ( Red)

This may be the easiest way to enjoy the endless choice of music streaming: just plug it into your TV and say the name of your favourite band into the remote control. It's not cheap though.

REVIEW

Google Chromecast 2015 ( Coral)

The innovative Chromecast might be the ultimate living-room accessory for your phone or tablet, but more traditional streaming devices deliver a better streaming experience.

REVIEW

Google Nexus Player

Until it receives a major infusion of native apps and developer support, and better integrates non-Google services, the Nexus Player with Android TV offers no compelling upgrade over other streaming devices.
