mcintosh mc1502 vacuum tube amplifier

As any audiophile knows, if you want super-lush sound out of your system, you’ve got to pair it with a decent valve amp. And decent doesn’t even come close to covering McIntosh’s MC1502 Vacuum Tube Amplifier. Inspired by the award-winning, limited-edition MC2152 – itself released in celebration of the company’s 70th anniversary last year – this amp can deliver a whopping 150 Watts to almost any speaker pair, thanks to McIntosh’s Unity Coupled Circuit output transformer technology. It also pumps out seriously clear sound, thanks to a signal-to-noise ratio of 112dB. Finally, it’s beautifully built: its vacuum tubes are set into a stainless steel chassis polished to a mirror finish, while their sockets include Air-Pipe cooling to boost the length of its service life. £13,995, mcintoshlabs.com TOTALLY TUBULAR The MC1502 has a serious…

editor’s letter

Ah, October. The nights are drawing in. The air is getting increasingly frosty. Suddenly Christmas only feels a stone’s throw away. Or, at least, that would be the case if this was any normal year. But this is 2020. Accordingly, at the time of writing, the UK has spent several weeks being slow-roasted like a leg of suncream-marinated lamb. Setting aside the unseasonable warmth / incipient climate emergency however, it still seems like a good time to start gathering metaphorical nuts for the winter and getting our living rooms ready for the long nights ahead. To this end, we’ve been scouring the bracken and undergrowth to find all the delectable audiovisual treats you need to see you through till spring in our new home cinema guide. Whatever your dream setup is, we’ve…

1 SAMSUNG GALAXY Z FOLD2 5G From £1,799, samsung.com How luxury can a luxury phone be? If you’ve spotted the price above – or, indeed, if you had any exposure to the first generation of Galaxy Z Fold – you’ll know that Samsung’s fantastical flagship slots right in at the top of the market. As well it should: the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G is a totally unconventional feat of engineering. If the first Fold was Samsung’s design team turning a collective fever dream into a real thing, this is Samsung employing an editor to pore through that hastily scrawled dream journal to make it make sense. The hinged AMOLED screen is the obvious eye-grabber. For this generation Samsung has given the selfie camera a punch hole rather than a notch, increasing available screen…

Not all scents are made equal, and some are so intensely sought-after they sell out before they even reach the virtual shelves. Tom Ford’s Neroli Portofino is one such scent. This unisex fragrance has its very own cult following, thanks in small part to its army of celebrity fans (including Harry Styles and Ellie Goulding), but mostly down to its remarkably distinct smell. Tunisian neroli, leather, wood, bergamot, Sicilian lemon and winter yellow mandarin marry more floral and herbal notes of lavender, orange flower, rosemary and amber to create a fragrance that’s all at once playful, seductive and lasting. Layer it up for a more intense hit after dark. Tom Ford describes the Neroli Portofino as a ‘classic eau de cologne that’s rarified with rich, sublime depth… lavishly heightened to…
