Tak­ing the stand, tak­ing the floor

What Hi-Fi (UK) - - Welcome - Jonathan Evans, ed­i­tor

The loud­speaker may not nec­es­sar­ily be the sin­gle most im­por­tant part of your mu­sic sys­tem – it can’t do any­thing at all on its own, af­ter all – but it is, surely, the most ob­vi­ous in your room. Get your speaker choice wrong for what­ever rea­son, and the rest of your hi-fi stands lit­tle chance to shine, no mat­ter how awe­some and five-star it may be. In this month’s What Hi-fi?, then, we de­vote a large chunk of our pages to en­sur­ing you make the best choice pos­si­ble for your new speaker pur­chase. We kick off with Group Tests of

en­try-level floor­standers (p28), then move swiftly on to £200 standmounters (p38). And, if your sights are set a lit­tle higher, we’ve got you cov­ered as well. The fol­low­ing pages are chock full of five-star rec­om­men­da­tions from £200 up to £2200 – and in­clude wire­less and pow­ered op­tions. We’ve got some fas­ci­nat­ing fea­tures as well – don’t miss our tracks to test bass and tre­ble, on p46.
