About Us

About Hi-Fi Trends:

Hi-Fi Trends is the journal of accessible hi-fi! That means we strive to make the hi-fi hobby less about measurements and esoteric high-dollar designs (even though they do have their place) and more about great sounding, well designed gear at all price points. We also focus on great sounding recordings, with an emphasis on hi-res audio files and streaming.

We want to showcase gear that is designed to play back great music in a way that will keep you glued to your seat with a smile on your face.  And we don’t believe it has to cost the equivalent of a new car to do it. We want to focus on the fun aspects of 2-Channel listening. Welcome to Accessible Hi-Fi!

About The Editor:

My love for Hi-Fi began as a young audio salesman in the late 90s. It was in the small, dark, demo room with its obligatory rows of speakers, stereo and home theater electronics, where I discovered the magic of 2-Channel sound.

My thirst for great sound led me on a quest from that demo room, into many audio shows, high end audio stores and the like, learning so much, and experiencing so much great music along the way. It is a quest that continues today, forming not only a hobby which I thoroughly enjoy, but also the basis for the writing and conversation you will read within the pages of this journal. I hope you can also learn, enjoy and be inspired via the words contained here on this site. Thanks for reading.
