The Best of The Buyers Guide 2021

[Editor’s note: Welcome to the Part-Time Audiophile Buyers Guide for 2021! This year we decided to mix it up a little by breaking up the Buyers Guide into sections, which makes it a far more manageable read. And oh, we know what you’re thinking–the best hi-fi components? Hard no! Everyone’s ears are different, and the components we love can be a very personal thing! Let’s clear this up: these are the best hi-fi components that we, the PTA team, have heard.]

It’s a wrap!

Thirteen articles, 20,000 words, 200+ products covered, and one hive opinion. Below are the highlights from the Buyers Guide 2021 with links to the full article for each product category. Enjoy!
