The best audio and hi-fi deals - April 2017

Pick up some sweet-sounding kit - at an even sweeter price - from Sonos to Naim, KEF to Bowers & Wilkins, and much more

As dedicated audiophiles will know, nailing a decent hi-fi setup can be seriously costly.

Aside from the amplifiers, speakers and subwoofers, there are whole rooms to re-arrange - for optimum resonance, of course - not to mention remastering the entire FLAC collection.

Mercifully, we've done the hard work to shave some pennies off your next home audio purchase.

Sure, establishing a house-wide streaming system will still set you back a fair few quid - but every penny saved is one more in the savings pot for those solid-core copper cables.

Multi-room systems deals

Sonos multi-room music system

Sonos has been in the multi-room music game since the beginning - and it's still the best. Sure, it only supports up to CD-quality files, but it supports a huge number of streaming services and system components. Oh, and it's simple to set up, too.
