April issue on sale today, online and in store!
The magazine's had a makeover this month, with a new, improved Buying Guide – containing 1500 products in 36 updated categories with revised tech specs – and a special, 16-page Ultimate Guide to Tablets.
Our Buying Guide now contains the best four- and five-star products (as well as our Award winners, natch), plus tips on how to pick the perfect TV screen size for your room, set up a Blu-ray player and choose the right headphones.
What's more, we've tested every tablet, large or small, that we could get our hands on in a mega round-up of these high-tech marvels. Whether you want to watch blockbuster movies on the train, access a world's worth of music or remote-control your house, a tablet will do it all. We help you decide which one is best for you.
Elsewhere in the issue you'll find all the usual hi-fi and home cinema loveliness. Got all your music stored on a laptop or PC? Then don't mss our Supertest of USB DACs, the perfect way to turn your computer into a proper hi-fi. The Award-winning Audioquest DragonFly takes on newcomers from Meridian, Musical Fidelity and HRT, among others.
For those who like to listen to their music on the move, our round-up of £125-£200 in-ear headphones brings you a choice of the best models on the market.
Of course, no issue of What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision would be complete without some proper hi-fi, and this month's issue won't disappoint. Our Group Test of stereo speakers is aimed squarely at those looking for an upgrade – we've pitched top brands from £700-£900 against each other in a six-way shootout.
Elsewhere you'll find our verdict on the latest version of Quad's legendary electrostatic speakers, the gorgeous ESL-2812s, a minimalist pre/power amp combo from Heed Audio, Pioneer's £800 A-70 stereo amp and a pair of powered speakers from Roth Audio, the OLi POWA-5s.
Home cinema fans fear not: we have an exclusive First Test of Yamaha's exemplary RX-A1020 AV receiver, the Cambridge Audio Azur 752BD universal disc player, and the most luxurious TV we've seen in ages, the Bang & Olufsen BeoVision 11-40.
Oh, and did we mention a trio of sub-£250 home cinema receivers from Pioneer, Sony and Yamaha? It's amazing how much surround sound performance (and features) you get for your cash these days.
