The new issue has finally made it to the printers, and will be mailing out soon. Here's what's in store:

ROY GANDY
Rega’s founder on why the past year has seen his company not just surviving, but thriving: sales are up, as is the pace of development, and he’s already eyeing further expansion

STAN’S SAFARI
Stan keeps on searching for the ultimate speaker, even if it’s not too good for your health – and reviews a book diving deep into the world of horn speakers

VERTERE SG-1
This isn’t just a turntable, but a complete record-playing system, from the way the motor is driven to the cartridge, mat and even an isolation shelf. Martin Colloms examines all the engineering

WILSON AUDIO SABRINA X
Almost five years on from his review of the original Sabrina, Martin Colloms finds much to like in this latest version of the company’s most compact floorstanding speaker, not with design and technology enhancements

DALI OBERON 7C
Featuring wireless connectivity at up to 96kHz/24bit, and supplied complete with a ‘base station’ with streaming capability, Dali’s active floorstanders have Kevin Fiske confronting some of his prejudices

NAIM UNITI ATOM HEADPHONE EDITION
The latest version of Naim’s most compact all-in-one streaming system has ditched the power amps in favour of an appeal to the ‘head-fi’ enthusiast. But there’s rather more to it than that: it’s also a preamplifier, as Andrew Everard discovers

KEF KC62
It may only measure about 25cm on each side, but thanks to powerful amplification and innovative technology, this little cube has the wherewithal to rewrite the subwoofer rule-book, says Martin Colloms

HIGH-END HEADPHONES
Focal has reinvented its Clear headphones with magnesium drivers, while T+A has a more affordable version of its Solitaire P debut model. Ed Selley looks at these upmarket designs, listens, and draws some surprising conclusions

KERR ACOUSTIC KC300 Mk3
With its roots in the world of professional audio, this transmission-line standmount speaker is something truly special, according to Chris Frankland

MICHI X3
This may be the more affordable of the two new integrated amplifiers from Rotel’s ‘halo’ brand, but with both power and poise it’s a sensation, says Andrew Everard

KEF LS50 WIRELESS MkII
The latest version of KEF’s ‘system in a speaker’ active standmounters have been given the Metamaterials treatment for enhanced performance. Martin Colloms logs in, adjusts and listens

KUDOS CARDEA C10
The British company has revisited one of its earliest speaker designs with a raft of sound-enhancing upgrades. All the work has paid off, says Ed Selley

TAPE MODULATION NOISE
There’s currently a revival of interest in the use of open-reel tape, fuelled by new releases on tape, and even some very exotic new recorders. Keith Howard’s not sure this is really ‘ultimate analogue’, as he explains

ROGERS E20A/II
This classic valve integrated amplifier has been revived under the current ownership, and it’s being handbuilt here in the UK once more. Chris Frankland is impressed

DYNAUDIO SPECIAL FORTY ANNIVERSARY
These superb-quality compact standmount speakers have Chris Kelly delighted – but he says you’ll have to put in the effort to hear them at their best

HAROLD BUDD
Mark Prendergast pays tribute to the highly influential composer, performer and collaborator

THE MUSIC
The latest classical releases, new jazz and more on DSD, plus vinyl finds

SOUNDSTAGE
Steve Harris charts the stuttering relaunch of music playback software Audirvāna
