Q Acoustics 2000i Cinema Pack 5.1 speaker set

RH Numbers

British manufacturer Q Acoustics exploded onto the hi-fi scene a few years ago with its 1000 series speakers. This 2000 series is the follow up. It consists of four satellites, a centre channel and a sub-woofer. You can have it in graphite black, piano black, or glossy white, though you’ll have to pay a little extra for the latter two options. All the speakers are solidly built, look great, and have recessed cable terminals. Classified as a budget system, the sound they produce belies their price tag and will fill any room with beautifully balanced, detailed audio.

Sony PS3 320GB

RH Numbers

Sony’s games console needs no introduction. It may be getting a bit long in the tooth but the introduction of the Slim and the PlayStation Move breathed new life into the platform. Its the PS3’s ability to do double duty as a media player that seal its inclusion here, however. It’s a fantastic 1080p Blu-ray player and does a great job of upscaling DVDs too. Add to that support for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio over its HDMI output and it obviates the need for a dedicated Blu-ray player.
