HiFi Media Issue 109 July / August / September 2019

 

   Welcome to HiFi Media on Enjoy the Music.com! HiFi Media is a multi-media magazine that covers almost all aspects of modern audio/video media with particular accent on the music and film. We inform, test and review new products of the widest range: from audio/video/photo devices and gadgets to the newest music albums. We also cover all relevant related global events. The quality of our magazine earned us readers' respect in many countries, including the strong support of local distributors. HiFi Media began print publication in 1996 and have online readers in Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia, BiH and Macedonia. The annual "Zagreb Audio Video Show", the largest show of the kind in this area and celebrating its 23nd anniversary in 2018, is closely connected to the publisher of the HiFi Media, and as the main sponsor. HiFi Media stresses that both the magazine and AV Show are the most influential institution in the home-entertainment segment at our location within Europe.

26 Grado Gold2 Turntable Phono Cartridge
Old Grado favorite in improved edition!
Review By Danko Suvar, Technical Editor of hifimedia magazine

Grado Gold2 is a cartridge with excellent timbral and frequency balance, and well balanced overall, sounds calm and well controlled, but at the same time it follows very well the dynamic and rhythm changes in music material, and all that without adding any (unnecessary) emphasis of high frequency content with the goal of creating more "openness" in sound. Grado Labs, established in 1953, is one of the oldest turntable cartridge manufacturers still in business.
