It's Black Friday so that means our team of experts is spending the day(s) scouring our reviews and Buying Guides, plus retailers' websites, looking for the best deals on our favourite products. Sorting the wheat from the chaff can be an arduous task, so we're grateful whenever the deals come to us. And that's the case here.

A little birdie tells us about these exceptional drops on a selection of five-star products, which aren't being publicised as widely as you might expect – perhaps because they're almost too good to be true.

Firstly, you can already make a saving on the new B&W 606 and 607 S3 speakers, both of which walked away with What Hi-Fi? Awards this year, with the 607 our overall Product of the Year. The 607 S3 speakers are down to £449 (a saving of £150), while the 606 S3 speakers are down to £549, saving you £200.

What's more, you can benefit from huge discounts on two Denon AV receivers, which both were award-winners in 2022; the AVR-X2800H and the AVC-X3800H. The X2800 is now just £499, a saving of £370, while the X3800 is down to £699, which is a massive £800 discount.
