The ANANDA is a brand new full-size headphone featuring HiFiMAN's most advanced planar magnetic drivers. The huge NsD membrane drivers coupled with an ear cup design from the HiFiMAN Edition X and headband from the Sundara make for an interesting proposition. Currently priced at $699, the ANANDA sits below the Arya and the Susvara in terms of price, but still offers many of the advantages of its bigger brethren.

The Synology DS920+ is a solid NAS server with lots of features and options for users who can pay its high asking price. Upgrades over the older DS918+ are not significant, though. Besides a stronger SoC and faster RAM, the rest of the hardware is about the same. HDMI and 2.5 Gbit Ethernet ports would have made a nice addition.

The Redragon M808 Storm has the same right-handed ergonomic shape as the Cobra M711 FPS, but comes at a lower weight and with a better cable. The sensor is PixArt's PAW3327, and extensive RGB lighting along with full software customizability are on board as well.

With the LIVA Z3 Plus, ECS looks to push the boundaries of what you can expect from its lineup of ultra-small form factor systems. Highly efficient, semi-upgradeable, and with enough I/O to fit most needs, it is quite a compelling system with support for Amazon Alexa, but it needs a few upgrades to truly shine.

The Sharkoon TG6 RGB costs less than many ATX cases with four LED fans. It leaves a good impression thanks to its solid material mix and sensible implementation. While the brown-tinted front glass panel may be a bold move, the uniquely designed LED elements of the fans really make it stand out nicely.

The ASUS Radeon RX 5600 XT TUF EVO uses the improved version of the EVO cooler. Temperatures and noise levels are excellent because ASUS decided not to downgrade the heatsink for their RX 5600 XT despite the much lower heat output of the GPU. Idle fan stop and a backplate are included, too.
