Sony NWA45 Hi-Res music player

The Walkman brand is still alive and kicking, and if you, or someone who you’re stuck for gift ideas for this Christmas, loves listening to their music on the go, then the Sony NWA45 Walkman is a must-listen!

Sony have packed some of their absolute best audio-processing technology into the NWA45, as well as a top-notch amplifier in a robust slice of industrial design, making the NWA45 a huge step up in both build, and most importantly, sound quality over the vast majority of mobile phones. With 16GB internal storage, and SD card slots for storage up to a total of 128GB, you can take a huge amount of music out with you, and with Hi-Res file support, you won’t be stuck listening to low-res MP3 files. Forty-five hours of playback time easily eclipses most mobile phones, too, and also means that you aren’t draining your battery on your phone whilst listening to your favourite tunes.

The bottom line is this: music on the go doesn’t have to be the poor relation to at home listening – and with the Sony NWA45, the daily commute might even seem like a treat, rather than a chore! Learn more…

Fyne Audio F300 speakers

Fyne Audio may not be a name you’re familiar with, but if you are a fan of fantastic sounding yet affordable British designed speakers then you should probably turn your head in their direction. With that in mind why not have a look at the bookshelf-sized F300 this Christmas? Not only a great listen, but they also fall into the ‘budget’ speaker spectrum and do so whilst giving near perfect bass, expert timing and a level of detail that you wouldn’t expect at the price point.

If I were you, I would probably start leaving sly hints to loved ones about just how good the Fyne Audio F300’s are for the price. Find out more…
