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 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.
