Lots of brands have lots of wireless noise-cancelling over-ear headphones to sell you — and now Technics can be added to that list. Its new EAH-A800 are sonically superb and boast a startling battery life.

Pander to their particularities and these French floorstanders thrill more than any other speaker at this price point… especially when volume is pushed up to 11.

Musical Fidelity Mx6 Vinyl Phono Stage
If you’re a multi-turntable user or an inveterate cartridge swapper, this game-changing (for more reasons than one) phono stage simply demands your attention.

+ Our 'secret' high-end review!
The apex (wink wink) of disc-playing performance is the promise of this versatile CD player, DAC and network streamer from one of the best British brands in the digital hi-fi business.

Hi-fi Features in this issue

How to build an amplifier
FYI, DIY amplifier kits aren't as straightforward as they may seem. But if you're interested in taking on a side project that involves a soldering iron, we've some advice to impart to help you on your way.

Music reviews
This time our music review section covers the best of 'Rock On', with ZZ Top sounding more soulful than they have for yonks in their soundtrack to the 2019 Netflix documentary That Little Ol’ Band From Texas, while the 11-year-old son of Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian is ripping it up in new three-piece band Honeybee; 'Top Picks', in which Interpol once again turn understatement into seductiveness for their seventh studio album; and 'Reissues', where Mercury Rev’s All Is Dream gets covers, demos, B-sides, outtakes and (the best part) a release on yellow or green marble vinyl, though garage fans will no doubt delight in a four-album clamshell boxset from ’80s sensations Milk Box.
