A stereo amp forms the heart of any hi-fi set-up. Whether it's amplifying a digital system, driving demanding speakers or giving your turntable the necessary boost, we've got the right amplifier for you.

They're not as simple as they used to be, after all. The days of analogue inputs and outputs plus speaker terminals (and that's your lot) are long gone.

With laptops, smartphones and streaming services becoming ever-more popular music sources, the stereo amp has moved with the times. Many now contain built-in digital-to-analogue converters, USB connections and wireless streaming skills as standard.

Here are the best you can buy, whatever your budget.
