Every year, the leading British magazine What Hi-Fi? publishes its selection of the very best audio and video equipment of the year. The What Hi-Fi? Awards honor the best electronics in a variety of different categories, including televisions, turntables, wireless hi-fi speakers, A/V receivers, hi-fi headphones, soundbars, radios, projectors, network audio players, hi-fi amplifiers, speaker packs, DAPs, compact speakers, floorstanding speakers, CD players, True Wireless earphones, audio DACs and multi-room speakers.
As usual, What Hi-Fi? favors British electronics. So we inevitably find major British hi-fi brands such as KEF with the LSX Wireless and LS50 Meta speakers, Chord with its Qutest and Hugo 2 DACs, the B&W speaker manufacturer with its B&W 606 S2 and 607 S2 compact models, and Rega with the Planar 1 and Planar 6 turntables, the Rega Fono MM MK3 preamplifier and the Rega IO and Rega Aethos stereo amplifiers.
