Editor's Lead In
Is Hi-Fi An Active Hobby?
Editorial By Tom Frantzen


STEREO Magazine Issue 25


  It depends. Of course, you can buy a high-quality HiFi system, throw yourself on the couch and simply enjoy listening to music at a high level. There's nothing wrong with that. But both the music and the technology also allow a more intensive, deeper engagement with "one of the most beautiful things in the world".

So the music lover may like to contrast different interpretations, compare an early with the late work of an artist, search for similar music of other artists, educate himself (also casually) about music or even music history.

The technology lover, on the other hand, will probably be more interested in how he can get the best out of his system. Be it with the right installation, some room acoustic elements, with cables for fine tuning, a better power supply, a rack as the optimal parking space for the system or other accessories, ultimately also with the purchase of new equipment or the replacement of components.


STEREO Magazine Issue 25


This can be very interesting, exciting and challenging – and is always a meaningful occupation.

Some people are particularly enviable in this respect. They have time to enjoy music and are also technically interested. They see music as the fuel for the system and the system as a means to the end of listening to top-class music. Content and sound united. You will find a whole bunch of those in our editorial office. It is not mutually exclusive.

Treat yourself to a little bit of everything. And share your hobby with your roommates. HiFi does not have to be lonely. A simple "
