Forget Prime Day, I've found the 12 best non-Amazon hi-fi deals that are worth your time

Feeling fatigued by all the Amazon Prime Day deals news getting thrown at you this week and you're not even a Prime member to take advantage of them? Or, want to nab a fab audio deal but don't want to give your hard-earned money to Jeff Bezos' empire?

You're not alone. Prime Day might have thrown up some great savings on the best TVs, best headphones and even a Sony turntable, but plenty of other retailers have also got in on the action during the big summer sales event with their own collection of discounts.

More importantly for me (and I hope to you, What Hi-Fi? readers), these trusted retailers are offering some big savings across a variety of fantastic hi-fi and headphones products. I've picked out a dozen five-star products below (some are even current What Hi-Fi? Awards winners) that span portable DACs, stereo speakers, all-in-one streaming systems and luxury open-back wired headphones – all of which are on sale right now across reputable retailers such as Richer Sounds, Sevenoaks, Peter Tyson, Premium Sound, Doug Brady HiFi and more.

You can make savings as small as £40 off a terrific budget portable DAC to a whopping great £460 discount on a stunning Marantz streaming system. And there isn't an Amazon link in sight. Happy shopping.

Bowers & Wilkins 607 S2 Anniversary was £449 now £329 at Richer Sounds (save £120)
One of our favourite standmounters has been knocking around below £500 for some time, but you can now save £120 on the original price. A no-brainer if you're in the market for mid-priced speakers that will work a treat for smaller spaces and still deliver punchy, detailed sound.

Cambridge Audio Evo 75 streaming system was £1799now £1499 at Richer Sounds (save £300)
A talented box packed with streaming smarts and physical connectivity, the Evo 75 looks appealing and sounds even more exciting. It forgoes some of its older sibling Evo 150's extra features (phono stage, balanced XLR, second speaker terminal pair), but remains great value with this ridiculously good deal. Just add speakers.
