Since 2004, CANADA HiFi has proudly entertained consumers on the topics of home theatre and high fidelity audio, as well as the technology that surrounds them. Our goal is to educate readers and encourage them to purchase higher quality audio and video components with confidence. Our team of contributors consists of audio video enthusiasts that have a passion for technology and extensive hands-on experience with the latest products. Every article in CANADA HiFi is written in such a way that every casual consumer can understand, not just those that are tech savvy. CANADA HiFi is published six times a year and is distributed in over 400 stores including independent audio video retailers, all 30 locations of Centre Hi-Fi as well as select computer stores and libraries. CANADA HiFi is available for free at a vast number of audio and video stores, unlike paid newsstand publications that can only be purchased a limited number of bookstores. Since our publication is free, we don’t have to compete with other paid magazines – which in turn allows us to have a much greater reach and circulation. Secondly, thanks to our exclusive distribution network, CANADA HiFi also reaches many industry professionals including store managers and staff, product distributors, custom installers and manufacturers.
