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.

As a subscriber you'll receive the following benefits:


•  A discount off the RRP of your magazine
•  Your magazine delivered to your device each month
•  You'll never miss an issue
•  You’re protected from price rises that may happen later in the year

Really interesting

Very good magazine for all those fans of hi-fi information and news Reviewed 09 April 2022

Hi-Fi+

Well, over the (many) years as an Audiophile, I have read (many) Audiophile magazines...My first impressions of Hi-Fi+ came from reading a printed issue (unfortunately, landed to someone who should have sent it back to me but didn't), but that issue whetted my appetite, so I paid for the digital edition. Great reviews, of important products, well-written....very satisfied. Will re-activate my subscription when it expires (in two month's time). Thanks a lot! Reviewed 17 January 2021
