Every time a new issue of What Hi-Fi? is published – that's 13 times a year – we update our playlist with a new selection of the music we've been listening to (and testing with) in the past month.

And guess what, it's now that time.

The May 2020 issue of What Hi-Fi? is now on sale, and it's a vinyl special! That means turntables, phono stages and a whole load of recommendations of what to spin on that platter.

And we have an offer you can’t miss out on – for a limited time only, you can take out a digital subscription to any of Future's best-selling magazines from only £3 ($3/€3.25) per month.

We also speak to Roksan founder Touraj Moghaddam, feature some high-end kit in our Temptations section, and offer up a full complement of first tests.

That of course all comes with our comprehensive buying guide, and our pick of 50 great British albums to test your hi-fi system.

Naturally, you're going to need something to test out all your new kit with, so here's a list of 20 songs – handpicked by our editorial team – we've been using for our reviews this month.

Happy listening!
