Space Saving Hi-Fi

Sometimes finding the right hi-fi component isn't just about the way it sounds; it's also about size. If you have a smaller listening you room, you may feel limited by what you can buy. But with the right components, a great set-up can consist of only a couple of items for full impact. 

 

The Source

 

First, you need to decide how you want to play your music. Components that you can stream to directly from your many internet enabled devices could be the perfect solution.

 

Lindemann musicbook:DSD Series (From: £2,994)

 

The Lindemann musicbook:DSD series offers components that can stream, connect via LAN and even have a built-in CD player*. The musicbook also has built-in radio capabilities and DSD playback. The Lindemann musicbook:DSD series is the perfect all-round component. 

*Only available in the 15 and 25 models. 

 

SOtM sMS-200 Mini Network Player (RRP: £499)  

 

If streaming is what you're looking for, the sMS-200 Mini Network Player from SOtM could also be the perfect space-saving solution. Simply stream from your phone, connect a WiFi dongle or attach it straight to your internet enabled device via a LAN cable to enjoy easy and high-end playback. 

 

Plus, get a free 12 month Roon License with purchase! 

 

Audio Deva Atmo Sfera Turntable (From: £1,281)

 

 

Is vinyl more your thing? The Atmo Sfera turntable from Audio Deva could be the perfect component for you. 

 

This platerless turntable is not only a unique-looking device, it also has a built-in phono pre-amp and pre-fitted tonearm and Ortofon cartridge. 

 

Connect the Atmo Sfera to a pair of active loudspeakers and have all the perks of a high-end system in just two components. 

 

 

Fidelizer Nimitra Computer Audio Server (RRP: £1,395)

 

If you want to use your computer as the main audio source, the Nimitra can pool your music together and act as a music library. 

 

Stream using TIDAL, Roon and many other supported programs and connect to your DAC for increased performance. 

 

 

Power Supplies, Filters & DACS

 

Adding a DAC or power supply to your system can often take up even more room, but some of our brands have come up with great solutions for no compromise filtering. 

 

LessLoss Firewall 1X & 5X Modules (From: £323)

 

 

These small power conditioners plug perfectly into any part of your system. The 1X and 5X modules clean up the audio signal to produce an excellent sound quality. 

 

Using LessLoss' advanced technology, noise is isolated bringing great improvements to digital hi-fi systems. 

 

 

LessLoss USB Firewall Key (RRP: £283)

 

 

 

The USB Firewall Key works very much like the 1X and 5X Firewall Modules, but is made specifically for USB devices. Simply plug the device into your computer's USB port, then plug your USB device and enjoy perfectly filtered music. 

 

 

 

Audiohilleo MKII USB to S/PDIF Processors (From: £579)

 

 

 

Another USB audio solution is the Audiophilleo MK II series. With DSD options available, as well as an optional PurePower battery power supply, the Audiophilleo is the perfect solution for computer audiophiles.

Wyred 4 Sound µDAC-HD (RRP: £499)

 

 

Using the Sabre ESS9018 DAC chip, found in Wyred 4 Sound's flagship DAC-2 series, the µDAC-HD is a great component that offers great sound without taking up too much space. 

 

This compact DAC from Wyred 4 Sound also has an integrated headphone amplifier.

The Output

 

Connect your source to a pair of active loudspeakers and you have an audiophile grade system that can fit neatly into much smaller spaces. 

 

Triangle Elara LN01A Active Loudspeakers (RRP: £599)

 

The Elara LN01A bookshelf loudspeakers from Triangle are perfect, designed specifically for small spaces. Connect your phone, turntable or any other source by cable or Bluetooth and let your music play with ease and control.

Boenicke Audio W5 Loudspeakers (From: £3,777)

 

Another space saving loudspeaker is the Boenicke Audio W5. Although without any integrated features, the W5 is a stunning small speaker. 

 

Made from solid wood and with some of the best audiophile components, the W5 loudspeakers are a beautiful option for small systems.
