This week Phil updates us on the Samsung S95B including a new firmware update which has meant the review is delayed slightly while it is tested further, including some ABL issues, plus, he reviews the Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 3 soundbar. Ed looks at the Q Acoustics Concept 50 Floor standers while Jules talks PQ EOTF and Gamma in our calibration discussions and Ian rounds up the week’s AV News. Finally, we get the guy's thoughts on Kenobi, while Ed gives us his album, playlist and vinyl of the week.

Loving the more detailed discussion on calibration etc.

Can’t believe Auro has even this long. Would love to have the room for a home cinema and use Auro. From the previous discussions @Phil Hinton and Steve were very impressed especially with the upscaling.

@Ed Selley. I’m a converted Sheepdogs fan! That Outta Sight is blooming brilliant. Might have to keep an eye out for the vinyl too.

Are Ed's music recommendations available anywhere in a consolidated list? I'm not usually in a position to make note of them when listening and it's too much effort to try and find them again in audio, but I would come to the site to find them.

Thanks gents - Look forward to Ed's proposed KEF reviews and wonder if the Samsung feature in the next Philips shootout?

Hi netwiz, if you check back in the relevant thread for the podcast (so, for 13-Jun-2022 - come back here), Ed's Picks section will be posted as a video clip and the links to his recommendations will appear in the YouTube video description. Or you can pop over directly to the AVForums Podcast Channel to get the info.

Hmm. So that's a no then. Obviously up to you how to deal with this but for me at least I just want to get in and get out with the latest list. I'm not going to scrub through even a relatively short video to pick out what they are from the chat. No worries - just some feedback.

Jumping in on this I'd second some forum thread on albums/playlists of the week - or a spotify / tiday playlist link as a point of reference for the lists. Often listening at a point where I can't make a note of the album, and forget to revisit. Scrubbing though a video is a bit of a kinetic barrier to finding the albums. I'd happily contribute every so often if it was a community thing to keep up to date.
