January 2016 issue on sale now!

Welcome to the January 2016 issue of Hi-Fi Choice – the essential guide to getting the best possible sound from your hi-fi, whether you're buying, tuning or tweaking...

Sonos may not be a brand that many readers will associate with what we as audio fans term ‘high fidelity', so why is its latest Play:5 speaker on this month’s cover of Hi-Fi Choicemagazine? Sonos is almost synonymous with multi-room audio and has captured the market thanks to its seamless control and integration, and has pretty much managed to set the benchmark for affordable music streaming around the home. Despite the company’s resistance to hi-res audio, its newly launched Play:5 raises the sound quality bar and sure makes the music sound sweet, thanks to its innovative room-tuning tech. 

For those interested in a more traditional hi-fi brand, we visit hi-fi stalwart Bang & Olufsen in Denmark as it celebrates its 90th anniversary with the launch of its BeoLab 90 speaker that claims to create 360-degree sound. The distinctive-looking speaker breaks with design convention, and like the Sonos also utilises sophisticated sound-tuning tech to compensate for placement and room acoustics.
