In our real hi-fi section this issue:
Pro-Ject X1 turntable: When the world was giving up on turntables, Pro-Ject was just getting started. The X1 shows how far it’s come in offering value vinyl replay.

Musical Fidelity M2sCD / M2si CD player + integrated amplifier: A pairing of classic hi-fi components which put sound quality first. As it should be.  

McIntosh C53 / C462 preamplifier + power amplifier: Sometimes this hi-fi reviewing lark is just a whole barrel of fun. A visiting McIntosh power combo is one of those times...

Richter Wizard S6 floorstanding loudspeakers: We’ve always considered loudspeakers to be magical items – so it’s appropriate that Richter’s Aussie floorstanders should be named ‘Wizards’.

Audeze LCD-1 headphones: The Californian company has made its most affordable headphone yet, still delivering that unmistakable planar-magnetic detail.
