£1,250 System

This is where things start to get really interesting. The extra budget allows for high-quality components that have not had to be built down to a price point for a start, meaning you can include a serious front end, such as the Rega P2. This is the sort of system that reveals just what it is about a good pressing that’s so fabulous

Rega Planar 2


The latest incarnation of an evergreen Rega classic gives you fresh insights into just how good vinyl can be. It looks simple, but nearly 50 years of experience means that it’s remarkably sophisticated under the skin with a high-quality RB220 tonearm, 24v synchronous motor and an acrylic laminated plinth. The P2 can dig out details that you didn’t imagine were in the grooves of your favourite albums and present them in such coherent fashion that you won’t be able to sit still, which sounds crazy but that’s what a decent turntable can do – and this is nothing if not decent.

About Long Live Vinyl

ISSUE 35 of Long Live Vinyl is now on sale! In our first issue of 2020 we bring you the inside story of Bob Dylan's most diverse, divisive and fascinating decade – the 1970s. Dylan made eight hugely different studio albums in those 10 years, and we've rounded up some of his closest confidants and bandmates to tell the tale. It's a must-read for any fan of Mr Zimmerman. Elsewhere in issue 35, our packed interviews section features Angel Olsen, Seth Lakeman, The Go-Betweens, Field Music, DJ Shadow and Courteeners, plus we take an in-depth look at The Doors' Morrison Hotel and meet the music fanatics behind America's coolest label group – Secretly Canadian. If that's not enough, we bring you 40 essential folk-rock classics, a guide to building your perfect hi-fi setup in 2020 and the usual eclectic mix of vinyl columnists, news and reviews. Long Live Vinyl is THE magazine for vinyl lovers.
