Australian Hi-Fi Magazine March / April 2020


    Since 1969, Australian Hi-Fi Magazine has kept audiophiles up to date on all the latest advances in audio technology and the hi-fi components available to enjoy music. All equipment reviews and music reviews are written by professionals who are experts in their respective fields, and are checked for accuracy by experienced sub-editors. Every audio component reviewed in Australian Hi-Fi Magazine is also independently tested by a NATA-certified test laboratory, whose test results and graphs are published with each review, together with a detailed technical analysis of those results. Australian Hi-Fi Magazine also maintains a complete database of all Australian and New Zealand distributors of hi-fi equipment, along with updated listings of the brands they distribute. Australian Hi-Fi Magazine is published six times a year and on sale at thousands of news agencies throughout Australia and New Zealand, as well as being available in selected audio stores across the country plus International mail and online via digital download.

Equipment Reviews
18 Denon DNP-800NE Network Audio Player
A first-class streamer that is a genuine pleasure to use, and also a definite improvement on previous model.


22 Sony WF-1000XM3 Wireless In-Ear Phones
These are not only the best-sounding in-ears we've ever heard, they also have the best active noise cancellation!


26 Vivid Audio Kaya 25 Loudspeakers
They are they drop-dead gorgeous to look at, but the sound is exceptionally good, because of the cabinet shape and the unique custom drivers.


32 Parasound Zphono XRM Phono Preamplifier
This inexpensive phono preamplifier does everything you could possibly want it to do, and does it magnificently.


72 Dynaudio Evidence Platinum Loudspeakers
Hearing the sound from these speakers is a game-changing experience you'll be talking about for the rest of your life.


78 KEF KF92 Subwoofer
It's a big a big call in a crowded market, but KEF's new K92 may be the best small subwoofer of them all.


86 Book Review
A book for audiophiles that's intended to clear up the mysteries of networked music comes disappointingly short of the mark... unless you happen to own a Mac.


98 Humour
Well, maybe this issue's column is not so funny if you own a Sonos system, but it's truly hilarious if you don't!


Australian Hi-Fi Magazine March / April 2020


Esoterica Section
68 Sound Travels
John Smith has had more hi-fi gear in his home over the years than there's candy in a candy shop, but his many changes have always been in pursuit of what he cherishes most...


72 The High End
Standing more than eight feet high, these speakers play tunes like no others, but they'll also lighten your wallet to the tune of $125,000, more or less, depending on the exchange rate.


83 Top Picks
Australian music at its best is what Matt Doria likes to hear, and he's hit the jackpot this issue, with new albums from Tame Impala, Cable Ties, Introvert, Mura Masa, Polaris and Slotface.


84 Super Fidelity
UK recording and re-mastering engineer Michael J. Dutton has been promoting SACD for years. His latest project is improving the sonics of old Argent albums, though he's found time for Herbie Hancock too.


85 Rock On
This issue we review music from Anders Buaas, The Flaming Lips, Field Music, Mobius, Henry Cow and King Crimson. Particularly interesting are the complete sets from Cow and Crimson, both remastered for better sonics.


87 Jazz Track
In welcome news for jazz fans around the world, there are some ‘new' Miles Davis recordings that have become available, plus Keith Jarrett's concert in Munich four years ago is finally on-sale on CD and vinyl.
