LATEST ISSUE  August 2014

Another – audiophile – release of The Beatles LPs is due September 2014. After the stereo LPs come the Mono LPs, singly or in a box set. Our latest issue has an exclusive Abbey Road interview explaining what lies behind them – and why they should sound better than all that has gone before. Don't miss this one: it is definitive for Beatles fans.
    Also in this issue we review great new active loudspeakers from Quad that you hook up to your computer direct, bringing Quad quality to the computer desktop. And if desktops aren't your thing, then you'll probably like reading about the muscular MCRU No127 floor standing loudspeakers that had us in awe.
    There's so much more - even first light on a special mono cartridge for the Beatles LPs - so don't miss our great August 2014 issue.
