I’m thinking of replacing my malfunctioning Arcam hifi. Technology has moved on in the fifteen years or so since I bought it, with new features like streaming & multi-room capability coming into play. And this is where I would like some advice before I start getting bamboozled in hifi shops. I guess the key question is what is hi-fi these days? With wireless speakers and Sonos-type multi-room systems, is there still a need for the combination of various boxes of tricks and two carefully placed speakers to get what would be traditionally required as high fidelity sound quality? How does the sound quality of these newer types of system stack-up against the more traditional ‘hi-fi’ set-up? To what extent have improvements in technology ‘improved’ the sound quality of traditional systems since I bought my current black boxes? I know a lot of this is subjective but I’d value the opinions of a bunch of music fans above the reviews of magazines that are a little too dependent on advertising, so over to you folks for any views or advice you can offer.
