Hi-Fi+ October 2023

 

  hi-fi+ is a magazine that is serious about hi-fi. Our articles are intended to help you get the best from your system, rather than simply telling you to buy another one. Our reviews only cover product that we think is worthwhile. You can read more about that by looking at our reviews policy, but lets just say that our attitude to equipment is rather different, and we hope, much more informative. We haven't forgotten that hi-fi is supposed to be fun!

Let's Talk About The Right To Repair
Can we find a happy medium?
Editorial By Alan Sircom
The Right to Repair is something audio magazines rarely consider, but automatically factor into reviews. But, in recent years, it has become an increasingly important issue in the longevity of good audio. Let's get the easy part out of the way first; the need to discuss a Right to Repair doesn't apply when it comes to most turntables and loudspeakers. Products that are primarily exercises in engineering as opposed to electronic engineering have an ability to be repaired baked into their construction and design. Put simply, if you blow up a drive unit on a loudspeaker, you get a new drive unit! The same doesn't hold true all the time with electronics today. Outside of audio, we moved from a 'repair' culture to a 'disposable' society. If you go through 'that drawer' of tech, you'll likely find several phones in various state of function.
