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) over the past month.

And guess what? Now is that time.

The November 2021 issue of What Hi-Fi? is now on sale, and it's our 45th-anniversary special.

You can subscribe or buy the latest issue here, or buy the digital edition on iPhone, iPadAndroid devices or Kindle edition.

To celebrate What Hi-Fi?'s 45 years in print this month, we've rounded up our favourite gear innovations from the last 45 years. Expect some genuine beauties, from the NAD 3020 amplifier and Technics SL1200 turntable to the Sony Walkman, to more recent favourites like the Chord Hugo DAC and LG's OLED C-class TVs. Classics, all, and products that continue to influence today's finest new gear.

We also tip the hat to 13 heroic tech failures that, in that time, failed to set the world alight despite some innovative thinking. 

Bringing things up to date, we have two just-add speakers streaming systems facing off in this month's mag. Both of these streamers major on convenience and value - so which will come out on top, Naim's Uniti Atom or Cambridge Audio's Evo 150? 

All that, of course, alongside our usual First Tests and features, and a round-up of the best true wireless in-ear headphones around the £100-£150 sweet spot!

And if you're looking for some high-quality music, past and present, to put your hi-fi, Walkman or streamer through its paces, we've got 20 songs – handpicked by our editorial team – that we've been using for our reviews this month.

Happy listening!

    I know you have to draw the line somewhere, but it would be helpful to include Amazon and Apple Music links too.
