RUARK AUDIO R1 We know what you’re thinking: didn’t streaming kill the radio (star)? Far from it: rather than going extinct, they’ve evolved. Perhaps the closest you could get to the Platonic ideal of a digital radio, this is the fourth-generation of the Ruark R1, released for its predecessor’s 14th birthday, and the premium audio brand has essentially perfected the formula to give you everything you’d want from a discrete radio. It has best-in-class sound, helped in no small part by its linear amplifier, Ruark NaturalSound+ driver and adaptive EQ. But its talents go much further than that: not only does it have a DAB, DAB+ and FM tuner, it also has a high-quality Bluetooth receiver, switchable auxiliary input and a USB-C playback port, meaning it doubles as a high-quality bookshelf…

editor’s letter

So it’s possible this may be the least orthodox Christmas ever. It’s certainly stranger than the one where the petty larcenists were tortured by that sadistic child. Weirder even than the one where Santa was kidnapped by the Pumpkin King and a sentient sack of insects. With the rules dictating how we will all be able to spend the holidays scarcely even a twinkle in Dominic Cummings’ eye, it’s difficult to know which of our Xmas traditions will survive this year. Will social distancing mean we all have to purchase custom-made two-metre-long crackers? How long does the Elf need to go into quarantine after relocating to a new shelf? Precisely how much hydroxychloroquine does it take to cure the ham? In the face of so much uncertainty, you need something you can…

1 LG TONE FREE FN7 • £TBC, lg.com There’s a long, long list of things that makes for great true wireless ear buds, and in creating the Tone Free FN7s LG is determined that it has ticked absolutely every box. Fit? Covered, with innovative new ear tips offering solid passive isolation and IPX4 water resistance enough to stop sweat and rain ingress. Noise cancelling? Well, yes: there’s that passive isolation, and a newly developed ANC, which LG reckons squashes sound more effectively over a wider range of frequencies than its competitors. Sound? Tick. LG continues its processing partnership with Huntingdon’s Meridian Audio, which has tuned the FN7’s DSP to replicate the experience of listening to actual loudspeakers, added its own Headphone Spatial Processing tech to significantly widen the soundstage, and packed in…

We admit this might be a little niche, but if you’re a Leica-owning photographer who spends their weekends photographing polar bears or climbing mountains, this is undoubtedly the jacket for you. It’s designed to be worn in extreme weather, but also has deep pockets to house your camera body and lens, plus extra compartments for SD cards, spare batteries, and other accessories. The jacket offers a hard-wearing Cordura shell, high-frequency seam sealing to keep drafts out, and 800-fill European goose down to keep you toasty. A graphene lining provides “revolutionary heat regulation” right down to-25C. It’s also antimicrobial, anti-UV and anti-radiation, and reduces humidity. The design and location of the pockets are intended to protect your camera and its batteries from the cold, using your body heat to prevent damage. Some real…
