The What Hi-Fi? Awards, in association with Sevenoaks Sound and Vision, are back once again and we are looking forward to announcing a wealth of winning products – and hosting an in-person event to celebrate! 

This year our Best Buy winners will be announced online on Monday 4th October, with the Product of the Year winners for each category revealed at the live event on the evening of Wednesday 3rd November. The special edition of the magazine will go on sale on Thursday 4th November.

2021 will be the 39th annual What Hi-Fi? Awards and is set to feature 31 categories and, based on previous years, more than 100 brilliant hi-fi and home cinema products for your delectation.

  • Best Buy winners announced online: Monday 4th October
  • Product of the Year winners revealed: Wednesday 3rd November

We will once again be recognising the very best tech the AV industry has to offer, from DACs to music streamers, projectors to TVs. There will also be a new addition to the What Hi-Fi? Hall of Fame, plus an Innovation of the Year and a high-end Temptation winner. 

Our Outstanding Contribution award will recognise an exceptional member of the consumer electronics world, while the Readers' Award winner will once again be decided by the What Hi-Fi? audience.

And there's not long left to wait...

Members of the industry can book tickets for the Awards event on our dedicated Awards website.
