Hifiman Electronics

If you don’t know Hifiman Electronics by now then you’ve been hiding in a cave on a deserted island. For me it’s one of my personal favourite brands and then I’m mostly looking at the Edition X V2, the good old HE-500, the HE-560, the RE-800 and of course the HE1000 series.… Read the full article

From all outward appearances, given what the public knows from images of Tekton Design’s speaker range, one would be hard pressed to immediately identify the Mini-Lore Monitors as part of the family.

The total price is $18,000/pair (unless otherwise noted, all prices in this report are CN$), which represents something of a bargain for all this hardware.… Read the full article

By | October 20th, 2018|Categories: Innerfidelity|

Please welcome him here to InnerFidelity, as I thought some of the mixes he’s been doing for AudioStream would be a great fit here too. His bio is at the bottom of this article. – Rafe Arnott


While my love for music is as preternatural as my love for sugar, oxygen, and affection, I’ve never considered myself to be a bonafide audiophile.… Read the full article
