What's Within This Issue Of Hi-Fi World
Many new reviews we know you'll enjoy!

Hi-Fi World December 2021


  How to design an attractive loudspeaker? Give it lots of bass. That's what we all expect from a capable hi-fi system including me and that will sell a loudspeaker. Deliver physical power to the human body, provide a moving experience. JBL's HDI-3600 loudspeakers reviewed on p10 did just that. By simple method: they directed bass through all three bass/midrange units. JBL have long history in loudspeakers, they know a thing or two as our review reveals. Here's a loudspeaker for anyone wanting to be moved literally.

From large to small, we take an in-depth look at three moving magnet pickup cartridges suitable for beginners. They won't break the bank and even if a stylus does get bent it can be easily and cheaply replaced. Results were surprisingly good however, the days of groove cutters are over. You'll get a good idea of what to expect from our detailed coverage, that you can find on p64.

Staying on a budget theme, Cambridge Audio's SX-60 loudspeaker gets the attention of all their knowledge and comes out looking good. For those who don't want, or just cannot accommodate a big floor stander like JBL's, this is a possible choice we check out on p41.


Hi-Fi World December 2021


As CD slowly fades away readers ask about how they can continue to play their collection. Not everyone wants to rip to a NAS drive under the stairs: some are happier with a simpler format. In response we look at two players this month, one from Cyrus on p36 and another from Creek on p24. Both use quality DAC chips and are slot loaders, but this apart there's little common ground between them. Creek provide digital inputs and a great CD filter set that makes their player look particularly attractive.

Ever wonder how they build a record player for 99? Martin Pipe brings you the grim truth when he finds one abandoned in the street! Be amused when you read all about it on p58.

Top headphones use planar magnetic drivers with open backs and usually cost north of 1k. HiFiMAN of China jump in with their take on things, price just 160 or thereabouts. What's the catch? Find out on p18.

Lots of variety this month, all from affordable products that work well. I hope you enjoy another great issue of Hi-Fi World.
