April issue now on sale

Welcome to the April issue
Anyone remember Money’s Too Tight (To Mention), the US recession groover released by The Valentine Brothers in 1982 and hammed up three years later by Simply Red?

Well, it strikes me that MTT(TM) is the most appropriate anthem for 2022. I’m sure you’ve come to dread the rattle of the letter box as the post arrives as much as I have. In the past five days I’ve been informed by my electric, gas and oil providers that payments are increasing for providing the same service they were last year. And let’s not even talk about filling up the car.

So, considering MTT(TM)’s an unfortunate fact, we are doubling down on our efforts to seek out the very best kit to suit what’s left in your pocket. Our Value For Money ratings have always been an integral part of our selection process when it comes to deciding which products to cover and we’re determined to be even more stringent from now on in making sure we bring you the best at the most competitive prices.

This month’s Group Test gets to grips with music streaming services so you can navigate to the payment package most suited to your needs and there’s also an exuberant review of the Rega System One which, as it says on the cover, is a classy complete hi-fi in a box for just north of a grand.

Plenty more bargains inside too. Enjoy!
