Triangle Borea BR08 £999

Triangle Borea BR08 £999 £680 at Amazon (save £220)
There’s no shortage of talented rivals at this size and price, yet having spent some time in the company of these Triangles, we feel they offer something special – not least at this discounted price. What Hi-Fi? Award winner

Q Acoustics M20 £399

Q Acoustics M20 £399 £350 at Amazon (save £50)
"An unfussy, just-add-source set of powered Bluetooth speakers that we find impossible to dislike," we concluded in our recent five-star review. And that was before Amazon slashed a hundred bucks off the price. Five stars

Triangle Borea BR03 £399

Triangle Borea BR03 £399 £307 at Amazon (save £82)
The equally impressive standmounters from the same Triangle Borea range as the BR08 above, the BR03 are truly excellent little performers, made better with a discount.
Five stars

Bowers & Wilkins 606 S2 Anniversary Edition £649

Bowers & Wilkins 606 S2 Anniversary Edition £649 £579 at Electric Shop (save £60)
The original 606 are fine speakers, but this new version is obviously better across the board. In fact, it's the best standmounter at its original price, as its current What Hi-Fi? Award goes to show – let alone its discounted one.
What Hi-Fi? Award winner

ELAC Debut 2.0 B5.2 £310

ELAC Debut 2.0 B5.2 £310 £229 at Amazon (save £80)

Q Acoustics 3030i £330

Q Acoustics 3030i £330 £266 at Amazon (save £64)
The 3030is are yet another excellent speaker from Q Acoustics. Want insightful speakers with a good dose of bass heft and authority? These deserve a place on the shortlist.(stands not included) Five stars

Q Acoustics Concept 40 £999

Q Acoustics Concept 40 £999 £499 at Sevenoaks (save £500)
Admittedly these floorstanders haven't cost their £999 RRP for a while (other retailers currently have them at £679), but we've never seen them at this low price before. The Concept 40 are around seven years old and have been trumped by rivals since their five-star What Hi-Fi? review, but they would still be competitive at this discounted price level. Oldies but goodies, then! The catch? You'll have to wait until 'early December' for your buy. Five stars

Elac Debut 2.0 B6.2 £329

Elac Debut 2.0 B6.2 £329 £299 at AV Online (save £30)
Not the biggest of savings, but a deal is a deal after all. These excellent five-star bookshelf speakers from Elac can be yours with £30 off at AV Online or Amazon. Five stars

Pro-Ject Primary E £199

Pro-Ject Primary E £199 £149 at Richer Sounds (save £50)
Our favourite budget turntable. For purists at the head of the beginner’s vinyl revival path who have this kind of budget and aren’t fussed about features such as record ripping and automatic operation, the Pro-Ject Primary E could be just the ticket. What Hi-Fi? Award winner

Pro-Ject Juke Box E £499

Pro-Ject Juke Box E £499 £399 at Sevenoaks (save £100)
An all-in-one system that we can’t easily argue against in favour of separates. It sounds great and is extremely convenient. So if space is at a premium, funds are (relatively) tight, or both, you should cast your glance in this direction.

Audio-Technica LP5x  £349

Audio-Technica LP5x £349 £314 at Amazon (save £35)
Audio-Technica’s original AT-LP5 turntable was a winner. This LP5x model now comes with an easier-to-fit cartridge, and a built-in phono stage for both MC and MM. And it even sounds a little cleaner than its predecessor. Winner again. Five stars

Marantz PM6007 £399

Marantz PM6007 £399 £369 at Amazon (save £30)

Cambridge Audio CXA81  £1099

Cambridge Audio CXA81 £1099 £999 at Amazon (save £100)
The CXA81 has more power at 80W per channel, a broad range of analogue and digital connections, as well as aptX HD for Bluetooth streaming. It deliver a confident and powerful performer, adding in a punchy, dynamic and astonishingly detailed presentation where needed. It's agile, more insightful and sounds wonderfully expressive through the midrange. What Hi-Fi? Award winner

Cambridge Audio CXA61  £749

Cambridge Audio CXA61 £749 £699 at Amazon (save £50)
The CXA61 has less power at 60W per channel, and has fewer inputs (especially forgoing the XLR inputs of its bigger sibling). It's fun to listen to – there's plenty of punch, a nicely judged tonal balance and plenty of detail. We particularly like its lively, dynamic nature. What Hi-Fi? Award winner

Audiolab M-DAC+ £749

Audiolab M-DAC+ £749 £649 at Richer Sounds (save £100)
The Audiolab M-DAC+ gets an awful lot right – so much, in fact, it comfortably justifies its ‘+’ designation. Lavishly detailed, fastidiously organised and elegantly straight-edged in its sound, it absolutely demands an audition. It helps that it's one of the best connected, too. Five stars
