HiFi Media Issue 92 December 2013   Welcome to HiFi Media on Enjoy the Music.com! HiFi Media is a multi-media magazine that covers almost all aspects of modern audio/video media with particular accent on the music and film. We inform, test and review new products of the widest range: from audio/video/photo devices and gadgets to the newest music albums. We also cover all relevant related global events. The quality of our magazine earned us readers' respect in many countries, including the strong support of local distributors. HiFi Media began print publication in 1996 and have online readers in Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia, BiH and Macedonia. The annual "Zagreb Audio Video Show", the largest show of the kind in this area and celebrating its 18th anniversary in 2013, is closely connected to the publisher of the HiFi Media, and as the main sponsor.
