Get the best out of your hi-fi

Buying the right equipment will certainly get you part way along the road to good sound, but there’s lots of other stuff you can do once your new kit is in place. Tech Radar has a feature detailing 10 ways to improve the sound of your hi-fi without breaking the bank – or even without spending any money at all.

Yes, this old chestnut has been dragged out once again, but it still makes interesting reading if you haven’t tweaked your hi-fi in a while. Top tips include getting better cables or cleaning the ones you have, buying an equipment rack, letting your kit warm up before listening and, one we especially like, setting your speakers up properly.

Now while Audio Critic issue 26 doesn’t agree with many of these tips, there’s no denying that setting up your speakers properly is vital to achieving good sound quality. We have some advice on basic speaker placement here, and some more details on fine tuning them here.
