Welcome to the June 2015 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...



Flicking through the pages of our latest issue shows that the LP usurped by CD in the mid-eighties is still very much alive and well. Hi-Fi Choice has always championed the much-loved format alongside new audio alternatives as they arrive, but it’s clear that the vinyl resurgence is reaching new audiences as well as reminding many that had forgotten why they once loved it so.   

As record sales continue to grow, April saw the format make its biggest comeback so far with the UK’s eighth Record Store Day making 2015’s event the biggest yet with hardcore fans queuing up early outside local stores to get their hands on the numerous special and limited edition pressings made exclusively for release on the day. But, of course, the headline news is the introduction of a new weekly vinyl albums chart launched by the Official Charts Company following the upturn in sales.

With vinyl very much on the agenda, this month's Group Test looks at six bargain-priced turntables to get you started on the right track.
