Hi-Fi+ Magazine
Issue 64   March / April 2009

hi-fi+ Issue 64 March / April 2009    Hi-fi+ is a bi-monthly 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!
