Audio Buying Guide - Hi-Fi


Hi-Fis have been the main way to play music in your home for a long time, from compact models to high-tech premium systems with a dedicated amplifier and individual speakers.

Hi-Fis now fit into three main categories:

- Traditional Hi-Fi systems, comprised of two speakers and the control unit

- Lifestyle Hi-Fis, which are ideal for modern homes since they’re contained in one slim unit that may be wall mountable

- Megasound Hi-Fis, which offer massive sound power outputs and are perfect for getting a party started

The Evolution of Hi-Fi

Though they may look the same as they have done for some time , Hi-Fis can have a variety of features that are found in smaller speakers and docks. This makes them versatile and perfectly suited to enjoying music at home in several ways.

Over the years, Hi-Fi systems have evolved from playing cassettes and the radio to having a selection of Bluetooth, AirPlay, Apple docks, DAB radio and CD players to give you options. Now you can use them to enjoy your CD collection, connect a smartphone, tablet or MP3 player either wirelessly or by cable, or even place your Apple iPod, iPhone or iPad in a dedicated docking station.

Pick a Hi-FI that offers the features best suited to playing the music you want, from the sources you have.

Louder Sound

If you want louder sounds and high-quality music reproduction with rich bass, then a Hi-Fi system remains one of the best options.

Our range includes Hi-Fis capable of up to 500 W of power output, with many models that feature subwoofers for solid, defined bass you can really feel.

Because Hi-Fis incorporate two or more speakers, you can listen to your music in natural-sounding stereo - the way it was meant to be heard. The benefit of a Hi-Fi with dedicated speakers is that dedicated drivers for treble, mid-range and bass frequencies allow the system to properly separate the audio frequencies to give you a more detailed and satisfying sound experience.
