Hi-Fi+ is Europe’s premier English-language high-end audio magazine. Whether it’s the latest in digital audio technology or the best turntable you’ve ever heard, Hi-Fi+ magazine is the ultimate audiophile authority.
Our goal is clear; to seek out the finest audio components money can buy. Music is the soundtrack to all our lives and we think that the better that soundtrack, sounds the more enriched our lives can be. A good audio system can open up new avenues of music that might surprise you. We don’t differentiate; it could be a classic valve amplifier or a state-of-the-art music server – if it sounds good, we want to know and we want to tell you about it. The difference between good sound and great sound lies in the details… and we are obsessive about detail.
We aren’t constrained by measurement or bogged down in stuffy old paradigms. We are relevant and a little bit irreverent. Hi-Fi+ features some of the best writers in the business, all passionate about making music sound as good as it possibly can. We seek out the finest audio components – and the latest and greatest music – and aren’t afraid of finding the best, whatever the cost.

Ratings and Reviews
/do not want
Hi>Fi+ is my favorite print mag for audio, but this digital implementation is sub-par, at best. It has a really horrible, low-res page turning animation that cannot be disabled in settings. Please, either use the iBooks page-turning or add the ability to disable your current version. The UX in the app feels very non-Apple; slow, imprecise, and sloppy. The total deal-breaker here, though, is the resolution of the text at default zoom level. I'm on an iPad with better resolution than my 60" TV and the text is blurry?!? Really? I rarely give such a low rating, but this lack of polish is unacceptable. I would steer well clear of any Newstand magazine that is produced by Pocketmags. They're rubbish.
Overall Very Good
For the most part, Hi-Fi+ gives the reader good, unbiased, and fair reviews on many brands of hi-fi components. However, they often miss mentioning a multitude of lesser known manufacturers who make great audio products. In this regard, they are hardly any better than TAS, but much better than Stereophile, which has declined to a point of becoming practically worthless. There's plenty of room for improvement, but Hi-Fi+ is well worth reading.
Great mag, but software needs better controls for iPhone
Probably one the best audio magazines out there, but the software controls to read it on an iPhone need significant improvement. Specifically, the control for resizing the page doesn't work consistently on my iPhone 4, leaving the text blurry on most pages. Content likely needs to be presented a more e-native format, not just an online redo of the printed mag.
