In this month’s Sound and Image News, we take a look back at four major pieces of news from the past few weeks in the audio and video industry.
We start with the recent announcement of the Sonos Roam, the second portable speaker from the American manufacturer, the Move being its first foray into this sector. After years of waiting, Sonos finally decided to launch its own Bluetooth speaker, but not without a home touch, that is, integration into the brand’s multiroom ecosystem.
We then come back to the controversy surrounding Xiaomi’s QLED TV, the Mi TV Q1. The Chinese manufacturer has widely communicated on a product at an unbeatable price and having HDMI 2.1 allowing to play in 4K at 120 Hz. However, the first buyers had the unpleasant surprise to find that despite its attractive price, their 75-inch TV was stuck at 60Hz beyond 1080p. Something to force Xiaomi to apologize and guarantee recovery and refund.
It is also in recent days that Bang & Olufsen announced its first gaming headset. But beyond seeing a luxury brand venture onto the playing field, is the Beoplay Portal credible?
Finally, we come back to all the rumors surrounding the next Apple TV. Almost five years after its last model, Cupertino releases the first clues about the novelties of its multimedia box.
