Speakers are a key part of any hi-fi set-up, and choosing the right pair for your system, budget and room is an important business. There are hundreds of models to choose from and it can be a daunting task deciding which ones to buy. We'd recommend drawing up a shortlist, visiting a dealer to audition them and using your own ears to make the final decision.
But to help you on your way, here's our pick of our favourite models, from budget £150 standmounters to £2000+ flagship floorstanders. Remember that your system, room acoustics and the type of music you like listening to will all be factors to consider before you buy.
Best stereo speaker up to £200, Awards 2014. There's a new champ in the budget speaker market.
Not just the best entry-level speaker you can buy but a worthy addition to any midrange system, too, and one of the best value hi-fi products under £200.
Best standmounter £800-£1200, Awards 2014. ATC has struck gold again. These are the most talented standmounters anywhere near this price.
One of the most honest and transparent speakers out there - the SCM 11s are a delight to listen to.
