SMART TV

$8,999, available from May 1

The Samsung Qled Q9F is the Korean chaebol's 2017 flagship Smart TV. This 65-inch 4K flat TV with a super-thin bezel looks more like a picture than TV when mounted on the wall. It exudes sleekness and could be a centrepiece in your living room.

Furthermore, it utilises Samsung's latest quantum light-emitting diode (Qled) technology that is said to accurately reproduce colours at any level of brightness, as well as express deeper blacks and whiter whites.

Sonos Playbase

SPEAKERS

$1,299

Designed for television sets that are not wall mounted, the Sonos Playbase is a wireless home sound system that sits discreetly under your TV set.

The sleek device - which looks as if it is cut from a single piece of granite - packs 10 class-D digital amplifiers despite being only 58mm tall.

Its flat top surface actually has 43,000 holes for an acoustically transparent grill to deliver sound when connected to the TV set or when streaming music from your smartphone.

It uses Logitech's exclusive Romer-G mechanical switches that are purpose-built for professional-grade performance. With a short-throw actuation point of 1.5mm, the Romer-G switches register key presses up to 25 per cent faster than standard mechanical switches.

The keyboard is also backlit with up to 16.8 million lighting colours to choose from.
