Bookmark and Share

If not quite a lottery, there is a game of chance you play when buying your favourite music on vinyl. It isn't like CD or downloading a digital file, where identikit reproductions mean you're more or less certain to receive the music as intended. No two vinyl records are exactly the same, but deficiencies from mastering to press can also leave whole batches sounding sub-par, and in the gravest scenarios have you eschewing some of your otherwise favourite albums. No doubt we all have some of those gathering dust in our collections, but likewise there are those records where the vinyl sounds so good we can't help but spin it nearly every time. That's what this list represents. It is by no means definitive, but if ever you've read a turntable review on What Hi-Fi? you can bet at least one of these ten records will have been part of the test.
