The testers have tested. The judges have judged. Fizzy fermented grapes have been imbibed and canapés scoffed. Trophies have been lofted and hangovers nursed. The What Hi-Fi? Awards have been decided for another year.
The ceremony marks the best of the best of this year’s home-entertainment kit. To receive a coveted gong it must display the perfect balance of performance and price; to be the kind of product that you must be absolutely bonkers not to buy.
That’s why Sevenoaks Sound and Vision has put together the ultimate list of the ultimate kit. You can buy online or pop into a branch armed with your favourite CDs, Blu-rays and hi-res files, and try them out for yourself.
Never mind keeping up with the Joneses. Fill your house with this lot and show them how it’s done…
