1. Denon DHT-T100 speaker base
Today's televisions are so slim there's no space for decent speakers, so they can sound insipid. This £249 one-box solution instantly upgrades you to powerful, room-filling virtual surround sound without the clutter of speakers and cables around the room. What's more, it can wirelessly play music from your phone or tablet via Bluetooth. Visit
2. LG 55EA980W
The most dramatic TV designs have curved screens to immerse you in the action and minimise distortion. This £7,999 LG Electronics model is a stunning 55in centrepiece, just 4.5mm thick, with a vivid OLED screen and a see-through speaker base, so it appears to float. A 77in version with ultra-high definition, for an even crisper picture, is coming soon. Visit
3. Loewe Connect ID
Many Londoners don't want a giant TV. This designer screen — which starts at 32in, costing £1,395 — proves smaller can be beautiful. The ID stands for Individual Design: you choose from 12 colour combinations and 30 unique set-up options. For example, it can rest on a table stand, move on a flexible wall bracket or be mounted on a striking floor-to-ceiling pole. Bespoke and beautiful. Visit
4. Now TV
No need to replace a perfectly good television just to get "smart TV" features. The compact and ridiculously affordable Now TV (£9.99 including delivery) boosts the IQ of any television by linking it wirelessly to your broadband internet. So you can enjoy catch-up TV including BBC iPlayer, connect with Facebook friends on the big screen, listen to music on Spotify and more. There's no subscription fee but you can choose to pay to view movies and sports on demand. Visit
5. Ten One Design Magnus
This is the simplest, most elegant iPad stand you can buy: a small piece of aluminium, machine crafted then hand finished, that attaches magnetically to your tablet. From most angles it's invisible. At just £34.95 it's perfect for propping up your screen on the bedside, breakfast bar or anywhere else you might want to use your iPad as a second screen to watch TV. Visit
6. Hansen Remix sound sideboard
Sit your sound system on beautiful furniture that's been built with technology in mind. Designed by Gesa Hansen for Tivoli Audio, this minimalist sideboard, priced £1,875, is made from hand-selected, ecologically grown wood and is designed to be a perfect fit for Tivoli Audio's range of high-end radios and CD players (from £169).
