Best Black Friday 2016 audio and hi-fi deals

(Updated 0945 29/11/2016) Treat your ears (and annoy the neighbours) with some new hi-fi gear

Amazon's reduced both its Echo and Echo Dot digital assistants by 20%, and given that both excel as music players, that's reason to be cheerful.

Elsewhere, the half-priced Google Chromecast Audio offer from Currys is the standout here for sheer affordability - just £15 right now.

If you're looking for a Bluetooth speaker then there's a wealth of choice, from premium options such as the B&O BeoPlay A2 (half price at £149 from Amazon), to the cheaper but still excellent JBL Flip 3 (£60 at both Argos and Currys). Or you can go somewhere in the middle and pick up the brilliant, rugged UE Boom 2 (now £85 at Currys and Argos).
