Australian Hi-Fi Magazine November / December 2021

 

    Since 1969, Australian Hi-Fi Magazine has kept audiophiles up to date on all the latest advances in audio technology and the hi-fi components available to enjoy music. All equipment reviews and music reviews are written by professionals who are experts in their respective fields, and are checked for accuracy by experienced sub-editors. Every audio component reviewed in Australian Hi-Fi Magazine is also independently tested by a NATA-certified test laboratory, whose test results and graphs are published with each review, together with a detailed technical analysis of those results.

Australian Hi-Fi Magazine also maintains a complete database of all Australian and New Zealand distributors of hi-fi equipment, along with updated listings of the brands they distribute. Australian Hi-Fi Magazine is published six times a year and on sale at thousands of news agencies throughout Australia and New Zealand, as well as being available in selected audio stores across the country plus International mail and online via digital download.

Equipment Reviews
20 Revel Performa3 M105 Loudspeakers
"One of the most accurate, revealing loudspeakers I have ever heard." Why not see if you agree with Ian Ross?

We listen to and then laboratory-test this Australian-made award-winning amplifier!

Smaller than the proverbial shoebox, this tiny sub pumps out prodigious bass for its size…

Music
68 Old Rockers
Queen's Roger Taylor would be one, and he's just released his best solo album yet! Howlin Rain also fit the bill, and their new album is a beauty. Vangelis doesn't rock, but he's old, and a great listen.

 

69 Classic Rock
Tricks on My Mind, the debut album from Sweet Crisis, is so steeped in the Classic Rock tradition that listening will bring a tear to your eye. As will Robert Jon & The Wreck's latest....

 

70 Top Picks
What a great round-up of albums this issue! Jesse Mail, Bleachers, The Bronx, Sleater-Kinney, Houston and the inestimable Willow all have new albums out that we've reviewed here.

 

82 Rock On
It's not surprise that, as all-female band, Inglorious' first album of covers would be covers of songs made famous by female musicians. What's surprising is the artists they've chosen, and their songs....
