Our 2016 spring issue is packed with reviews and features:
- Messenger scores a double review for Rega LP cartridges, assessing the latest version of the Apheta, and also the brand new high end Aphelion moving coil. He also tries out the luxury Estonian Audes Excellence 5 AMT floor standing speakers. He loved the Heco Direkt loudspeakers enough to award them a Best Buy. It must be Paul’s speaker issue as he also reviewed the latest single driver, full range Eclipse, the TD 712z mk II, which also got a recommendation.
- Soundsmith USA get an entry with their high end induced magnet cartridge, designed to tread in moving coil footsteps: the Zephyr MIMC is assessed by Chris Bryant.
- And if that wasn’t enough, there’s a comprehensive review of the class leading all-in-one streamer amplifier audio system from Astell and Kern, the AK500, investigated by our correspondent Andrew Everard.
