What Hi-Fi? UK - May 2020

To say that these are troubling times is an understatement. As I write this, offices are shut and we are being told to stay at home. Never, then – surely – has music been more important as a way of unwinding and destressing from the worries of the world. And listening on a record player is, in our opinion, the best way to truly take yourself away from it all. Playing a vinyl disc requires a commitment that no other form of listening requires outside a live performance. There’s no skipping tracks here, after all… So our vinyl special issue comes at a sadly opportune time. Our pick of turntables at every price (p28) means there’s something for every reader here, whether starting out on their vinyl odyssey or a seasoned traveller. We also have tests of cartridges (p48), phono stages (p52) and amplifiers with phono stages (p60) so you can get your deck to sing to its full potential. And don’t miss our 50 great British albums (p46 and 66) so you can put your precious vinyl system through its paces. Good luck.
