Here's a sneak peek of what's inside:

Australian Hi-Fi magazine is a member of EISA, the Expert Imaging and Sound Association, so we're on the panel of journalists and reviewers from 51 magazines around the world that collectively vote to select the world’s best hi-fi components. In this issue, you'll find full details of all the winners, including the citations.

We feature an exclusive interview with Ole Lund Christensen, the founder of Sirius and GamuT, and whose designs for Amphion and Jern have ruffled feathers, to learn he has a new venture.
