HOME ENTERTAINMENT CATEGORY ROUND-UP

By Wares November 16, 2018 Home entertainment

A round-up of some of the latest local and international home entertainment category news.

VINYL GOES WIRELESS

Vinyl lovers can now get a taste of the wireless life with Yamaha’s MusicCast VINYL 500 turntable.

Designed to work with MusicCast wireless speakers, users can now place the turntable wherever they want in the home and hear their vinyl around the home.

A built-in phono preamp gives flexibility to connect any audio system, adding streaming service playback to your legacy hi-fi system and users can also stream music services with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, airplay or Spotify connect.

NZ availability is uncertain.

SMART TV CONTROL GETS SMARTER

New from Logitech (but no news as to NZ availability at this point), the K600 TV Keyboard is designed especially for use with Smart TVs giving you the comfort of a full ergonomic keyboard rather than having to use a smartphone to view and browse on the big screen.

The K600 has a trackpad along the side of the QWERTY keyboard and plenty of buttons for media controls. This Bluetooth model has a 15-metre range, year-long battery life and can also be used with PCs and a range of smart mobile devices, switching between them with a simple button.
