As fervant audiophiles will know, nailing a decent hi-fi setup can be truly expensive.
Besides from the amplifiers, speakers and subwoofers, there are entire rooms to re-orginise - for ideal resonance, of course - not to mention remastering the whole FLAC collection.
Mercifully, we've done the diligent work to shave some pennies off your next home sound purchase.
Without a doubt, building up a house-wide streaming system will still set you back a reasonable couple of quid - yet every penny saved is one more in the savings pot for those solid-core copper cables.

Lacking a few of the Muo's features, B&W's T7 is a corker all the same. Offering extraordinary quality for its size, this honeycomb box is both easy to use and great to listen to, with solid bass and a generous battery life of more than 18 listening hours.
Classy sound and design at a true bargain price - this is the best affordable little Bluetooth speaker around
The Jam Heavy Metal sounds better, but this "grapefruit wearing a corset" has the toughness and waterproofing to make it a more adventurous option
Wireless speakers deals
The first proper 'hi-fi' wireless speaker, Naim's Mu-so sounds great - and is beautifully built to boot. Yes, it's expensive, but for a chord-free box with genuine hi-fi credentials, there's no better bet. It's full of streaming features, too.
A can-do cube that packs a heavyweight punch, the Qb complements its bigger sibling's more refined character with a confidence that belies its size. Small, stylish and surprisingly powerful, it's got a top-notch build and bold, expressive sound to make the Mu-so proud.
If you want a small speaker and want to get as close as possible to hi-fi sound for under £200, the Riva S is what you should buy. It's a top small wireless speaker for real sound hounds.
