SYS­TEM BUILDERS

What Hi-Fi (UK) - - System Suggestions For Your New Speakers -

Nor­mally, when we have a Group Test in What Hi-fi?, we in­clude a sys­tem builder on the ver­dict page, giv­ing you our sug­ges­tions for some part­ner­ing kit that will go par­tic­u­larly well with the test win­ner.

Opt for Sys­tem 2 if you’ve got more money avail­able to you – it will be quite some time be­fore you feel the need to up­grade any of this kit. En­joy…
