High street stores such as Maplin, Curry’s and PC World will do most of the standard affordable PC and wireless hi-fi speakers and each store also tends to offer a more expensive makes as well. If you are going for the top end of music speaker then you will want to approach things a little differently. If you’re keen to stick to the high street then go to an actual music shop rather than an electronics shop. Music shops like Fender offer a huge range of music speaker going right up to the best and most expensive models.
Many online stores are worth checking out as well. There are of course your standard online options such as Amazon and Argos. These are great for the basic stuff, just like your regular high street store. IF you want to have a little more of a shop around and a detailed look at the variety on offer you should take a look at more specialist websites such as creative.com.
There are often better deals online than there are in store and it is easier to shop around and compare models. Also, for those really keen on getting the perfect set of hi-fi speakers, you’ll be able to look online for more niche makes for professional use that are not usually available in store except in very specialist music shops.
Finally, if you are buying PC hi-fi speakers don’t forget that most websites and shops will do a deal for you if you are buying your PC from them. They might even consider throwing in your hi-fi speakers for free or knocking off some of the cost.
One thing to remember is that it is not the best idea to buy hi-fi speakers second-hand. Though this might be a tempting option as they are cheaper, they are not likely to last as long and they can have hidden problems if they have been treated badly or played too loud.
Whichever type of hi-fi speakers you are going for, research online first and then decide whether to order through the internet or go to the high street to make your purchase.
