Audio-Technica AT-LP5

If you want a turntable you can plug straight into your amp and play, with the added bonus of USB output, there is nothing better at this price; the AT-LP5 sounds fantastic

Sonos PLAY:5 / ZonePlayer S5 (1st Gen)

Several hours of critical listening left our ears feeling a bit fatigued—an issue we didn’t encounter with B&W’s Zeppelin (not entirely an apples-to-oranges comparison, since the Zeppelin is a non-networked iPod dock), but the S5 was a huge hit when we...

Sonos Play: 3

If there was anything holding the Sonos back, it's been the fairly steep price of admission. But the Play:3 speaker lowers the cost of entry...

Cambridge Audio CXU

The CXU is a welcome addition to the select band of elite disc spinners currently available. It competes strongly against the Oppo BDP-105D, which also has Darbee onboard, and the Arcam UDP411, which doesn’t. It doesn’t dethrone the Pioneer LX88 as my...

Philips BM50

However, using a Bluetooth audio source does mean you can access music from pretty much any service or source. Compared to some well-established multiroom audio rivals, the Izzy BM50 is keenly priced, making it great value for its feature set and...

Panasonic SC-PMX70

I'm very pleased with this system but the Panasonic support & customer service is absolutely awful and the product description on this page leaves a lot to be desired. So please read this before ordering! Positives first: it sounds great in my study,...

Naim UnitiQute 2

There's no point in us mentioning the UnitiQute 2's price again, because if you're serious about audio it won't matter that this is an expensive bit of kit. But, bear in mind it's cheaper than a lot of other Naim hardware, and we think it's every bit...

Denon D-M40DAB

It is difficult to be over complimentary about the D-M40 as a micro hi-fi system at this price; Denon has produced something even better than last year’s Award winner.
