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.

At the end of the day, we want to showcase gear that is designed to playback 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.  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 the Consumer Electronics industry (JVC Americas), audio shows, high-end audio stores, and the like, learning and experiencing so much great music along the way. It is a quest that continues today, forming not only a hobby that 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.
