What Hi-fi Awards 2017

What Hi-Fi? Advertising Awards

13 October 2017

Black ties, glitzy five star logos, once-in-a-lifetime advertising deals and red and white banners. Lots of red and white banners. Must be time for the What Hi-Fi winners award ceremony.

We have never hidden our scepticism of journalistic gushing over (coincidentally?) heavily advertised hi-fi products and we won’t be starting now. But the fact is, there are a number of brilliant products in this week’s winners’ list. Some are longtime favourites at Adventures but as always, the proof is in the listening. Your listening. So if you want to find out which products win for you, come in for a listen (in no particular order, of course) to:

Rega Planar 1 Best turntable £200-£500 | Rega Planar 3/Elys2 Best turntable £500-£800 | Rega Planar 6/Ania Best turntable £1200 | Rega Brio Best stereo amplifier £300-£700 | Rega Elex-R Best stereo amplifier £700-£1500 | Moon 240i Best stereo amplifier £1500-£2500 | Chord Mojo Best DAC under £500 | Chord 2Qute Best DAC £500-£1000 | Chord Hugo 2 Best DAC £1000+ | Moon Neo MiND Best music streamer £1500-£2000 | Naim Uniti Atom Best hi-fi system | Rega Fono MM MK3 Best phono stage under £250 | Monitor Audio Silver 200 Best floorstanders £800-£1200 | Monitor Audio Bronze 2 Best standmount speaker £200-£400.
