HiFi Separates

There's a wide choice of Hi-Fi speakers. But on closer inspection the choice can be narrowed down if you look at specific categories. For instance Wharfdale have dominated the budget bookshelf catagory for many years with their Diamond Series, but now the Tannoy Mercury F1 Custom has stolen the 100 budget speaker awards recently and the new Monitor Audio BR1 is set to rewrite the sector again. We look at each category to help you decide. Check also our user-voted best-buys.

AV Speakers

Your home cinema system is not complete without a set of quality AV Speakers to complement the plasma or LCD TV you may have. Packages start from around 200 but higher quality systems come in at around 300. All the big HiFi names now offer products in this market including Denon, Acoustoc Energy, Mission, EPOS, Tannoy, Yamaha, Kef, REL Acoustics, Wharfdale and Monitor Audio.

Theres nothing like a quality Micro System to spice up your listening pleasure in the kitchen, bedroom or home office. The latest offerings from Denon, NAD, Yamaha, Onkyo and TEAC are all amazing value. Send us you own reviews and help other site users make their choice.

Featured Micro System - Denon DM33 CD

This latest offering from Denon is the replacement for the award winning DM31 that led the way in Micro Systems for so long. Competition from Yamaha and Onkyo has arrived since, so Denon do not have things all their own way anymore. Don't write-off the Teac CRH250 though for a quality alternative

Featured Reviews - Bookshelf Speakers

We've always wanted to review again the Wharfdale Diamonds and pit them against the current opposition. Linn, Monitor Audio, EPOS, Tannoy and now Arcam all offer alternatives but are they worth the money and how do they sound against the Wharfdales? Read our review and send us you own opinions.
