Australian Hi-Fi Magazine November / December 2018


    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.

Adrian Lim-Klumpes' Steinway has been given post-production treatment that makes listening to it like hearing a piano conversing with its own ghost.


98 Rock On
Jez Ford reviews a live album from the all-female band with the greatest chart success in history. And no, it's not who you're thinking of!


100 Super Fidelity
We can barely believe it ourselves, but yet another version of the Koln Concert has been released, plus yet another version of MJQ's ground-breaking album The Sheriff.
