Winner: Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air

The new Zeppelin Air is vesy similar to its iconic predecessor but now with added Airplay. The striking design is an acquired taste, meaning it can dominate a room. Turn it on however, and it's all about the sound. With five drivers, including a subwoofer, the Air can shake walls and produce sound you'd normally associate with home cinema audio systems. It's not cheap at £499, but its big body, big sound and bold looks meant it took home the title this year.

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.
