Inearspace Does HiFi
Hey guys! I’m Josh, you may have seen me around here before, but let me now welcome you to the Inearspace Hi-Fi section!
As well as reviewing for the rest of the site, I will be running things over here to bring a load of reviews of Hi-Fi components from a range of brands, price tags and purposes. We hope to be filling this section up with loudspeakers, pre-amps, power-amps and networking gear throughout the New Year and expanding our range and quantity of products we have up here so please bear with us!
Why have this section then?
Well, I have been brought up with Hi-Fi and it is essentially how I got into portable audio, and from that, actually got Sonny into portable audio. Not only was I surrounded by an audio loving family from a young age, but actually worked in a shop that had a pretty good Hi-Fi separates selection including Musical Fidelity, Arcam, Roksan, KEF and Monitor Audio, which I got to listen to quite a bit.
It’s a different experience to headphones and earphones altogether. It’s a bigger audio experience I love the imagery and staging a loudspeaker system offers. It’s also a shareable experience. Something you can have in the background, something you can do with friends and something you can do on your own.
And honestly, it is my favourite way to listen to music in general.
Like earphones and headphones aren’t compared because they are such a different way of listening to music, it’s the same for a home stereo. They are completely different experiences so there will be no comparisons made to headphone listening in reviews because it really isn’t representative of, well, anything.
So please, give it a read and open yourself up to full size Hi-Fi!
