The least-expensive Wilson speaker and the most-expensive Vandersteen speaker go head-to head in the May issue, accompanied by reviews of PS Audio’s affordable DSD DAC, Schiit’s high-value Ragnarok integrated amplifier, Vandersteen’s unique monoblock amplifier, and Luxman’s high-performance EQ-500 phono preamplifier.

With Michael Fremer on vinyl playback, Art Dudley on a rebuilt Naim amp, Kal Rubinson on surround sound, and Steve Guttenberg polling speaker designers on how close they are to achieving “accuracy,” our 140-page May issue has something for everyone.
