Christmas is just around the corner, but you don’t need me to tell you that. But what you might need a little help with is knowing what to get the music/audio lover in your life without breaking the bank. Let’s face it: it’s not widely regarded as a budget-friendly hobby or interest. In fact, it’s probably one of the least budget-friendly. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways of keeping the costs low, but the smiles high on Christmas day whilst keeping things strictly hifi.
Want to know how? Check out our great value hifi Christmas gifts Under £100. Whether you’re looking for a main gift or just a little extra something for the stocking, you will find something suitable here. Here’s what you can expect…
If you don’t think that vinyl cleaning equipment and accessories would make a very suitable gift for a analogue fan, then you probably don’t know them very well! If your loved one loves their vinyl, then chances are they’ll love caring for it too, but will probably forget to buy the gear themselves. This will only mean your gift will only mean more to them!
We have a huge selection of brushes, tools fluids and sprays, such as the Chisto Black Analoguer, for cleaning, and some very handy gadgets for vinyl maintenance. All for under £100, and most small enough to squeeze into a stocking.
High quality audio is no longer confined to the “listening room”. Thanks to a series of improvements over the years, it’s now possible to enjoy high fidelity (or the closest thing to it) wherever you go. This isn’t just limited to hi-fi head and earphones (although there are plenty of those!) but also to the kind of thing 2016 has released to make portable-listening even more convenient.
Take the Arcam MusicBoost, for example, an iPhone headphone amplifier, a DAC and a portable battery in one. It works like a phone case, looks like a phone case and takes up no more extra room, improving the sound from your phone tenfold. It’s perfect for your loved one’s pocket for a better quality of listening, for longer… just make sure they have an iPhone first!
Some music fans will always prefer to keep things as traditional as possible, but some may be up for a little easy sound-experimentation on top of their exsisting system. For those people, we can suggest the likes of the Arcam MiniBlink, it’s been around a few years now and remains one of our most highly recommended pieces of equipment across the board. For £99, you can turn any existing separates system (either hi-fi or music) into a wireless streamer.
This is perfect for anyone who has yet to experience the freedom of wireless streaming, but who loves their music and their existing system enough to try.
