Runner-up: Sonos Play:3

Based on Sonos's own system, the Play:3 gives you access to many online services including Spotify, Napster and Deezer. This is the most affordable addition to the manufacturer's mulit-room range which, for £249, is excellent value. A lack of auxiliary-in audio the panel felt was a missed trick, but considering its size, the sound quality is fantastic. Controlled with an Android/iPhone/iPad app, the Play:3 offers features unmatched by its two rivals in this category.

Why does the winner (as well as the other 'runner up') rate a score of only 9/10, whereas the 'runner up' Arcam rCube gets a full 10/10? Or are the scores taken from the original reviews and minds have changed since then? /confused/

The scores are taken from the original reviews whereas the awards judging panel scored the Zeppelin Air higher. Yeah, it's confusing.
