I was once, hundreds of years ago invited to WHS&V HQ for one of the group listening tests.

Enjoyed it and a nice bunch of people. Nice pub next to it too.

Things have changed considerably since then. HIFI was at its peak and not a streamer or Bluetooth speaker in sight ... .
Yup, that pub was nice. We sat in the garden overlooking the river Thames.

I am not in my 50s but I feel old reading this

What we might forget is that loads of young people start producing music and it is easier than in the old days. And for that you need stereo monitors. So the assumption that young kids are not getting exposed to good Hifi is not completely true. It is probably that they care more about experiencing the music itself than letting the experience depend on whatever system they have. I have been there, my old crappy boom box was not the same compared to my current speakers. I have enjoyed music on the most crappy systems. The time they are treating systems like fine wine and nerd about a system, rather than about the artist and their experiences with friends has yet to come.

Also the channels young people are on online are not the same as the elderly. That has always been the same in comparable ways given any random subjects.

Andrew put me in the mag for question of the month in the forums and I won a HDMI cable. Thanks to Clare for doing Fantasy football I won the monthly prize 3D glasses and a football joke book. I was suppose to get a single of JD in his band Waxed but JD was a busy man. :)

Andrew is writing reviews for HiFi news magazines!


I didn’t know this but just received an email from eBay about an old HiFi news mag which reviewed the Pioneer Susano Sc-lx90 amp. Just had a look at the contents of the mag and it looked really good! I think I might subscribe to it and see how it goes. Has anyone else come across this mag and what do you think to it? Thanks

I reckon this mag is where the Reavon X200 4K Blu-ray player review came from!

... :LOL:I first came across it in 1971 gel, 50 years ago when it cost 20p per issue , been reading it on and off ever since.

Could be a bit dangerous for you - if it inspires spending sprees as they feature more upmarket gear - which is why I prefer HFChoice, which is just a (little) bit more real-world.

HFNews is the world's oldest hi-fi magazine.

...still does all the Audio stuff in Gramophone too.
Would I be right in thinking that he's the only one involved?
Because I'm not into classical, the audio pages are the only ones I read when I pick up the Gramophone mag in my local library. It certainly all seems to be down to him - with good round-ups of all the latest products.

How come you are so interested in the Susano review Gel, I thought you hated the amp when you had it briefly?

I loved the whole generation of products from Pioneer that year. I suspect the Susano I bought was fautly. Can’t prove it but lots of second hand items aren’t up to snuff from my personal experience. I didn’t like the 91 Blu-ray player from Pioneer too or the Pioneer 5090 plasma I bought second hand. Still love the products from demos I have had.

Andrew did a very in depth review of the Naim Supernat2 amp, it was nearly like a University thesis, which not only included info as to the differences between Supernait2 and the Supernait amp as to looks, build, features and sound quality, but also detailed photos of the two amps highlighting the differences in appearance. No mention of bluetooth, televisions, iphones, tablets and smartphones; heaven...

Andrew Everard is an exceptional writer and I enjoyed his participation in the forums, even though he called me a troll.

Well, I was complaining about the words What Hifi used to describe the sound of speakers and Andrew said that I was the definiton of a troll.

Its not wine tasting man.

He certainly was one of a kind in the way he moderated this site.
