Episode 03: Sonos Beam, new Denon and Marantz receivers, the 2018 World Cup

This episode, Host Simon Lucas talks with News Editor Becky Roberts, Brand Development Editor Joe Cox, and Staff Writer and humble podcast producer Adam Smith about Sonos' new soundbar, the Beam - which undeniably better than a musical shelf.

We also spoke to Giles Martin, Sonos' sound experience leader, about the future of formats from the multiroom speaker company.

For round two, we take a look at the newest receivers to come out of Sound United’s annual European Dealers Conference, with 3D sound and AirPlay 2 compatibility, as well as the limited edition KI Ruby SACD/CD player and integrated amp and new turntables from Denon.

Finally, we tackle the World Cup. For the best World Cup TV and home cinema systems (and cheap deals to get yourself a bargain), all the advice you need to set them up or even how to get it on the BBC iPlayer in Ultra HD or virtual reality, we've got everything you need to know.

And when you're not watching, you should be listening to our World Cup playlist - 32 tracks that come from each of the contending countries.
