Hi-Fi World June 2016

    Hi-Fi World is an independently owned and run specialist hi-fi magazine, started by Noel Keywood, a highly respected technical journalist of thirty five years standing. Dedicated to equipment of all types, the emphasis is on 'affordable audiophile' kit which doesn't have to be expensive, but has to perform. Our readership is worldwide and diverse in nature, but all share a passion for music and the desire to hear it as enjoyably as possible. Run by enthusiasts for enthusiasts, our commitment shows in everything from the rigorous technical measurements we undertake on almost every product reviewed to the weird and wonderful editorial mix. No product is too small or obscure; old and new, budget or high end, if it's great then Hi-Fi World will say so!
