HFN&RR A Great Read

This is a great read, with some really interesting and thought-provoking articles alongside the usual reviews/rubber stamping of selected hi-end brands. Highly recommended...

Pocket Mag app

This works better than using the online version from Hifi News. The index, scrolling and zooming is better. There is one issue, using the online mag you can see any issue in the archive, with this app you can only see the issues that you have downloaded from the date you subscribe, you have to pay for back copies.

Audiophile Essential Reading

Hi-Fi News has been at the forefront of keeping high end audio enthusiasts informed of the developments in the industry. I have been an irregular reader and subscriber since my early thirties, some thirty six years ago. In those early days I had a very moderate system nowhere near high end. With guidance from the magazine I have now built a very pleasing system which is light years ahead of what I used to own. Hi-Fi News has helped in two ways, firstly in allowing me to compare items I would later audition and also with their advertisers they have put me in touch with some excellent (and refreshingly, honest) dealers. Longs live HFN&RR!
