Hi-Fi

Radios

Revo K2

Four stars - Tested at £300 - Available at £120* - Compare Prices

If you aren't bothered by K2's rather small-scale delivery, its facilities with timing and integration, and its articulacy, all impress. And if you don't mind an opened box, you'll be able to pick it up for £120 at Superfi

Bundles

Denon CEOL Piccolo and Q Acoustics 2010 with free speaker cable

Available at £280

Two five-star products for one great price? That's what you'll get at Superfi right now. If you consider we tested the Denon at £260, you'll spot the value because those 2010s are worth more than £20 – £110 in fact.
