£2,000 System

Our highest-budget system is a no-compromise combination of components that impress on all counts: build quality, feature count and most importantly sound. Of these, features are the least important and often get in the way of the end result, hence the manual speed change P3, all-analogue Brio amp and single-wire Oberon 5 speakers. The money in each case has been spent where it will reap the biggest sonic rewards, but they have left a little to deliver great finishes, too

Rega Planar 3/Elys2


The second Rega in this round-up is the redoubtable Planar 3, the turntable that made the company’s name back in the day. However, because it has been evolving ever since, it is still the turntable to beat in the hard-fought middle market. With the Elys2 cartridge, it reflects the exact nature of each record so well that describing the sound is very much like describing the music. In essence, it reveals why vinyl remains the format of choice for so many of us. It does this by delivering class-leading timing and musical energy in a controlled and refined manner that makes many other sources sound crude and dull.

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.
