Christmas is coming, and for the music-lover in your life there’s a great deal of choice out there to make this Christmas a special one. The best thing about the gift of hifi, is that it truly is the gift that keeps on giving. Any true audiophile will use their gift on a daily basis, and the gift of high-end, luxury sound will not have to be remembered: it will be actively enjoyed for years and years.
But, what to get the audiophile in your life? If you’re stuck, we’ve handpicked a selection of luxury hifi Christmas gifts for you to consider, knowing each one will bring a smile to even the fussiest audiophile’s face.
Here’s a small taster of what you can expect to find…
A pair of high-end headphones should be the crown jewel of any high-end high fidelity set up. But picking the right pair can be a very dangerous game! It’s important, where possible, to chose something that will stand the test of time, accommodate a variety of tastes and genres, work nicely with a variety of different equipment and have an established pedigree to back it up. It’s true, there are a lot of high-end headphones out there that will cost you a great deal of money, but how many of them tick all of those boxes and work well as gifts?
This list has some of the very best high-end headphone gifts picked out, ones that tick those boxes and deliver in every possible way. Take the Sennheiser HD800S for example, a stunning pair of headphones released in order to better the legeandary HD800, which are still regarded as one of the finest pairs of headphones to ever be created by critics and customers alike.
A house fully fitted out with a multiroom system is (or should be) the long term goal of any music lover, be they an audiophile or not. The ability to control the music in each room of the house is a luxury that was once limited to certain brands, but now can be enjoyed by so many more.
Take one of 2016’s finest triumphs: the Yamaha MusicCast system. This is a very cost-effective way of introducing a wireless (and really rather versatile) multiroom system into your home. Even more so when you consider the fact we have packages (such as the trio package as pictures above) on sale especially for Christmas. Why give one luxury Christmas gift, when you can give three for a very similar price?
When it comes down to it, there isn’t much an audiophile would prefer over a good old fashioned hifi separate. Even if they already have a full system, there’s always room for improvements and upgrades. Be that a source, like a high-end CD player or turntable, something essential like an integrated amplifier or perhaps something a little more niche. Take the Audiolab M-DAC+, for instance. A DAC adapted from the multi award winning M-DAC, and improved upon in every way. It’s the kind of gift they wouldn’t think to get for themselves. And aren’t those the best kind?
