What an excuse for Hifi!


Absolutely terrible, I can't believe I took a leap of faith and paid $5.99+tax for that! They don't know the best brands or models at all, they endorse some of the worst audio equipment I've ever seen, the reviews are biased, and the experiments are poorly and inconsistently executed. Honestly, They don't even post important tech specs, such as total harmonic distortion (THD): this is because they know the specs are not as good as they should be and one can take the time to search for something much better.

I admit I'm a little biased as to what the definition of "hifi" audio is since the brands I deal with range in the thousands of dollars for single pieces of equipment, and yes to a true audio engineer it's worth it: the distortion, power, and sonic clarity of genuinely wonderful equipment is unbelievable.

The distortion on the magazine's listed equipment is too high to post, and is actually quite audible, and not in the way that guitarists and tube-amp-lovers like, but in the tv or radio static sort of way.

Look up brands like McIntosh, Pass Labs, Wilson Audio, Krell, and Mark Levinson if you want to see what good companies are like. Price doesn't effect quality, but one should expect them to coincide. Some of the world's most luxurious speakers are millions of dollars. However, the world's most lifelike "live-sound" speakers are Wilson Audio's "Alexandria XLF" at $200,000/pair weighing nearly 594.2 kg or 1310 lbs (non-metric). Again, cost does not reflect quality!
