Following the recent acquisition of Aussie magazines Sound+Image and Australian Hi-Fi by our antipodean colleagues down at Future Publishing Australia, What Hi-Fi? is proud to announce that these two fine titles will be joining us online right here at whathifi.com. 

Both titles are widely respected in the international audio and home entertainment communities and, since 2017, have been full members of the Expert Imaging and Sound Association (EISA), with seats on the judging panel for the annual EISA Awards.

So what exactly does that mean for the What Hi-Fi? website, you may well be wondering?

Primarily, it means we'll be bringing you more expert reviews and advice, backed by first-class testing facilities and Australia's most highly qualified team of AV writers, with more than 80 years of combined industry experience between them.

In the short term, we'll be migrating some of the most popular articles from these two titles over to What Hi-Fi?, but in future you'll also find brand new reviews, guides and news items from the Sound+Image and Australian Hi-Fi teams.
