With a lot of help from contributor Grover Neville we bring you the first of three in a series of the 2018 InnerFidelity Recommended Components Lists. Sure to please many, sure to disappoint more than a few. Regardless, this is it.

We hope you enjoy reading about them as much as we enjoyed (and struggled over) choosing them.

This is the Under $500 USD List, so I’ll get to the point and let you read on.

Roon: Questions? We May Have Answers

By | December 13th, 2018|Categories: Innerfidelity|

This piece appears on our sister site AudioStream, but it was pointed out to me that there are probably just as many headphone-centric music lovers who have had questions about the 900-pound gorilla of music software on the audiophile scene, so I’m posting it here as well.
