This week’s Lust List features a clutch of gadgetry that’ll make your house a bit more stylish and a lot more functional.
Whether it’s upgrading the speaker system or getting yourself a better alarm clock. These devices will turn your abode into a fully-formed gadget kingdom.
We’re leaning pretty heavily into audio tech this week, but there’s also the likes of the Oppo Watch to dress yourself with.
And, because nothing goes better with tunes than a nice cold drink, we’ve also found an excellent do-it-yourself brewery kit.
Let the good times roll.
