It's time to shake off those winter blues and welcome in the warmer weather. The March issue of What Hi-Fi? is on sale now, and if you're planning on taking your hi-fi outside this summer then you won't want to miss this one.
We put a range of seven Bluetooth speakers through their paces - including Bose, Cambridge, Libratone, Philips, Onkyo, Kitsound and JBL. Whether you're looking for something for inside or outside the house, our test will have you covered.
You spin me right round, baby, right round
We can't get enough of the vinyl resurgence, but the turntables of the past don't quite cut it these days. If you want to mix the best of both the vinyl and streaming worlds, a USB turntable is certainly a good place to start looking.
With contenders from Audio Technica, Crosley and Lenco, all of which have built-in phono stages, we look at the reasons why each one should (or shouldn't) be invited into your home. But, of course, only one can come out on top...
More after the break
Head(phones) to head
No matter how much you're spending on a pair of cans, you're want the best value for money - especially when your price point starts going over £500.
We have three products that are vying for your attention, from Audio Technica, Beyerdynamic and Fostex. All three are comfortable, well-built and lightweight, but it's sound quality that really matters - and in this issue, we'll let you know which over-ear headphones we'd recommend.
As Notorious B.I.G once said, "Mo Money Mo Problems" - however, when it comes to our high-end Temptations this issue, we have to disagree.
Pushing the limits of your wallet is the Leema Tucana II Anniversary Edition stereo amplifier, which will set you back £5000. Celebrating the speaker manufacturer's 10-year anniversary, this amp is a definite symbol of how far hi-fi has come.
Also featuring in this month's Temptation pages are the Venere S stereo speakers. Produced by Italian hi-fi manufacturer Sonus Faber, these speakers offer a sound quality that we think is worth the £4800 price.
And there's more!
As always, we have an array of First Tests to guide your hi-fi purchases.
There's a vintage-style radio from ViewQuest, a pair of Roth speakers with an in-built phono stage, as well as the controversial Apple AirPods.
From audio to video, we've tested a 4K Blu-ray player from Oppo, a uniquely-designed Philips television that sits on a cheese-grater style speaker and the new Google Chromecast Ultra.
If you want to keep up to date in the hi-fi world, there's no magazine better than this. Happy reading!
