July 2016 issue

Welcome to the July 2016 issue of Hi-Fi Choice – the essential guide to getting the best possible sound from your hi-fi, whether you're buying, tuning or tweaking...



The last six months have been an interesting time for the vinyl format as record sales continue to grow beyond all expectations and the number of turntable models coming to market is also steadily on the rise. Vinyl is no longer a revival format, it’s back, and as demonstrated by the variety of different turntables on show at the Munich High End Show – see our full Show Report in this issue – is appealing to audio fans on all kinds of budgets looking to reconnect with music in a tangible way that can seemingly only fully be achieved with the vinyl format.

Of course it really isn’t all about vinyl, and like you, we simply enjoy listening to music in the best quality available. With this in mind, it would be interesting to know the music sources you favour. Write to us at: letters@hifichoice.co.uk or look out for our online poll and tell us what formats you enjoy.

Lee Dunkley (Editor, Hi-Fi Choice)
