From Queen and Universal Music comes Queen: The Studio Collection, featuring 15 remastered albums in an 18-disc box set. 24-bit/96kHz digital masters were first made from the original tapes with any speed errors, missing audio, clicks and other unwanted noises rectified in the digital domain, and then the tracks were pressed on heavyweight 180g theme-coloured vinyl.
Though it’s not quite Radio Ga Ga, Rega’s latest turntable is sure to be a big hit with Queen fans too. Launched to complement the vinyl release, it features the band’s crest silkscreen printed across the platter and the exclusive ‘Queen by Rega’ logo on the gloss-black plinth. With its hand-built RB101 tonearm, the turntable boasts a low-noise, low-vibration, 24V synchronous motor and a Rega Carbon moving magnet cartridge. An optional upgrade to the handmade Bias 2 cartridge will also be available.
Queen: The Studio Collection will be available from 25 September for £285. Find out more about pre-ordering it here.
