SONY H.EAR G - SRS-HG1 - Wireless Speaker

Today I'm looking at Sony's new portable wireless Hi Res Audio speaker. What is Hi Res Audio I hear you say. One of my first videos was actually about that. It's basically 24bit sound as opposed to 16bit. Any way let's look at the key features and come back to that. 

This new speaker looks very much like Sony's old portable speakers. It's not exactly what you would call an out of the box design, and I say that because well it just looks like a box...but anyway.

Sony say H.ear go delivers extra base and has been designed with dance music in mind. And utilizes the S Master HX digital amplifier to deliver a rich sound via its 2 drivers and central passive radiator. With the power of actually Sony haven't specified this yet. But they say it could be equal to a knockout punch from....

Now listen here Sony say this the world's smallest Hi Res Audio portable speaker which it most probably is. Although there is just one question. Can you stream full Hi Res Audio to it? The answer is sort of. It has Sony's on LDAC which might also be a Klingon swear word. LDAC allows you to stream near Hi Res Audio quality transferring data at up to 990kbps via Bluetooth. Thanks to its WiFi capabilities the H.ear speakers can be added to your sony multi-room set up using the Sony Songpal app.

So if looking for a speaker for when your on the go. Which delivers a wider frequency audio than any of its competitors and comes in multiple colours, and supports multi room and LDAC streaming, and the power to last up to 12hrs. Then you might want to go and check out the H.ear go from sony

I got just one question can you get Hi Res Audio sound quality from single mini audio jack? 

Sony Bravia X930D

Today I'm looking at the Sony Bravia X930d 4K HDR TV. Now finally Sony have come along and released a new Hero TV with the strength to carry on without the dare I might say...those hideous speakers.

Also something I spotted straight away. A much nicer stand which allows it to sit very close up to a wall and it also doubles up as a cable management system. 

For this new model flagship Sony have gone out their way to create a new 4K HDR logo.

For those of you that don't know HDR stands for. Its High Dynamic Range and its quite likely to be a term you hear a lot this year when it comes to 4k TV's. To explain HDR simply, A HDR TV can basically display more depth of colour and colour gradients and brightness. Sony are also boasting an expansion on the already impressive Triluminos colour gamut adding even more blues and greens this time around.

This new flagship has an all new Grid Array back lighting system. Known at the Master Drive which is not a console from the 90's. It is in fact a full backlit panel that Sony say can match the black levels of an oled screen. Some say Sony's new backlight system might be the finest back light system known to man, delivering 4000 nits of brightness compared to the industry stamdard 800 nits. And that they achieved this by having more backlighting zones than any TV ever made. With these zones this TV can be more efficient with its power management and deliver a level of incredible brightness which is tge achillied heel of OLED technology.

So if you're looking for a cutting edge 4K HDR TV with gold trim. That's comes with Google's latest Adroid M OS and recognizes 40 languages but unfortunaltly Kling on is not supported. Anyway as I was saying if you want a TV with a world's first LED backlighting system and is ulta slim and doesn't compromise on colours brightness. Then you might want to check out the Sony X930c and that won't be a problem.

But I got one question...are the on board controls any good?
