Sony STR-DH820 AV receiver

RH Numbers

This seven-channel, 100W per channel amplifier might blow your windows out, but it won’t blow the budget. There are four high-speed HDMI inputs, one output, and support for 3D. There’s also a USB input with support for the iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. And the calibration system needs only one set of measurements from the built-in mic to get you up and running. With support for 1080p upscaling, every Dolby and DTS standard you’re likely to need and plenty of analogue inputs for your audio kit, there’s really no need to look anywhere else.

TDK ST-700 headphones

RH Numbers

Unless you live on your own, there will be times when you’ll need to shut yourself away from the ambient sounds of a noisy household, and for that you’ll need a decent pair of headphones. You’ll also need a pair that are comfortable to wear for long periods and which don’t cost the earth – you will only be using them occasionally, after all. The TDK ST-700 cans are just the job. The rubberised headband and lightweight foam earcups mean you’ll barely notice you’re wearing headphones. They’re robust, too and fold-up neatly when you’re not using them.
