Q Acoustics M20 £399 £355 at Amazon (save £44) (opens in new tab)
"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

Q Acoustics Concept 40 £999 (opens in new tab)

Q Acoustics Concept 40 £999 £499 at Sevenoaks (save £500) (opens in new tab)
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 (opens in new tab)

Pro-Ject Juke Box E £499 (opens in new tab)

Pro-Ject Juke Box E £499 £419 at Sevenoaks (save £80) (opens in new tab)
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.

Pro-Ject Debut Carbon £369 (opens in new tab)

Pro-Ject Debut Carbon £369 £299 at Amazon (save £70) (opens in new tab)
A five-star turntable that has a similar level of longevity to the vinyl records themselves. Excellent sound, good build and easy to set up, plus it comes fitted with an Ortofon 2m Red cartridge. Five stars

Cambridge Audio CXA81  was £1099 (opens in new tab)

Cambridge Audio CXA81 was £1099 now £999 (save £100) (opens in new tab)
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  was £749 (opens in new tab)

Cambridge Audio CXA61 was £749 now £699 (save £50) (opens in new tab)
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 (opens in new tab)

Audiolab M-DAC+ £749 £649 at Richer Sounds (save £100) (opens in new tab)
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

Cambridge Audio DacMagic 200M £549 (opens in new tab)

Cambridge Audio DacMagic 200M £549 £399 at Richer Sounds (save £150) (opens in new tab)
