What HiFi Awards

Anyone wake up this morning to an email from Richer Sounds telling you a lot of the What HiFi Awards winners? Is this normal before anything officially released from What HiFI themselves?

No, and I am still yet to receive my mag either! I never understand the need for the delay of the awards mag.

Are you going to name them then? :?

Clean sweep for Panasonic plasma TVs, it had to be.  I wonder what will win next year though?   :O

Yes, me too. Very odd. Did Richers publish too early? Did WSV foul up and not announce the winners early enough? I see the Awards are finally published on the site: clearly the old 9-5 is alive and well and living on WSV!  ROFL

Or are the Awards now 'in association with...' to such an extent that Richers get to announce them first?

Or indeed any digital cable. Is this a tacit admission (at last) by WSV, or have they just got

RE: What HiFi Awards

I thought the Arcam A19 would win best amp. pity they could not buy a Creek 50A to review, sounds like  ahollow victory to me. Even that freelancer managed to get one. 

Listen to the music, not the hifi.

No Real shocks in there at

No Real shocks in there at all seems a very familiar line up.
B&W seem to have the style home cinema speaker package crown back this year with Yamaha taking the av receiver crown. Sorry if that's a spoiler

System Thread needs to be done

This isn't a criticism of

This isn't a criticism of What HiFi but the awards seem a little F1. Slightly different chassis names from last year but very similar results.

Does all seem a bit low-risk, doesn't it? Mind you, with the cover saying 

I'm looking forward to the announcement, presumably later today, of the awards for best cameras, computers, gaming consoles, cars – Stuff like that  ROFL

Is the Rega RP6 really the best turntable?

The Sennheiser Momentum headphones are over ear not on ears, the on ear ones are about £100 cheaper.

Listen to the music, not the hifi.

The best 800+ apparently...but if you believe that then .................

Probably the best WHFSAV have had in for review. Smile
