Welcome to the November 2015 issue of Hi-Fi Choice – the essential guide to getting the best possible sound from your hi-fi, whether you're buying, tuning or tweaking...

This is a very good time of year to think about buying yourself a pair of stout new shoes. Not for kicking your way through the autumn leaves you understand, but so that you can comfortably explore the many exhibition halls and demo rooms in search of the very best stereo equipment from audio brand’s introducing their latest and greatest developments at the numerous hi-fi shows that pop up on the calendar at this time of year.

This month sees the welcome return of The Hi-Fi Show Live for a third consecutive year to the Beaumount House Estate, Old Windsor. Hosted by our sister title Hi-Fi News & Record Review and AVTech Media, the two-day, high-end show held on the 24th and 25th October is the UK’s only luxury audio event to showcase the finest two-channel components money can buy under one roof. With interactive workshops by industry specialists and demos galore, it looks set to be the hi-fi event of the year for audio enthusiasts and music lovers alike.  See the Hi-Fi Show Live 2015 preview for information and to prebook your tickets. I am certain this will be one show you won’t want to miss! I am certain this will be one show you won’t want to miss!
