Hi-Fi World March 2022

 

  At Hi-Fi World we've enjoyed bringing you some of the UK's biggest loudspeakers, the most extraordinary being Tannoy's Westminster Royal GRs in our November 2015 issue. Delivered by truck from Scotland, they demanded pallet trolleys and three men to manhandle each one. Thankfully our building had a goods lift. The days of such exotic loudspeakers from Tannoy are over, sad to say. We are still happy to take in and grapple with large floorstanders though and this month yet another pair grace our pages, this time from Q Acoustics. Where the Westminsters clocked in at £27,950 the Concept 50s are more wallet friendly, just £1,999. Yet they gave a great sound, big enough to keep most listeners happy. You can read about these lovely loudspeakers on p10.

Back to the glorious Westminsters! And Mojo. One of my favourite pictures was of Chord Electronics original Mojo driving these massive speakers, on p78 of our January 2016 issue. Seems that back then Chord Electronics claimed Mojo was capable of driving loudspeakers – so that's what we did! Tannoys finest needed just a few Watts so the task was not as improbable as it might seem – it worked nicely. With Mojo 2 Chord Electronics have quietly dropped that claim, talking up a host of new features instead. To find out more about them just go to p66.

 

Hi-Fi World March 2022

 

There's no stopping the rise and rise of vinyl. Long ago everyone thought it would be a short-term fad, but not so. For reasons much discussed, sales have risen for the last 14 years according to the British Phonograph Industry (BPI), now topping 5 million. That's a long way off the 85 million peak of 1978 but it's still a commercially significant figure, especially when repeated around the world. Like in Japan for example where even Sony have re-started vinyl production, perhaps prompting Luxman to come up with their new LMC-5 moving coil cartridge that will surely appeal to its home market and global markets. Read about its qualities on p73.

We've got a lot of affordable, yet high quality products in this issue, ones that will improve your enjoyment of music. I hope you enjoy reading about them all.
