Two Channel – the way music is meant to be heard. Appreciate the definition and accuracy of a system dedicated to faithful stereo reproduction. Hi-fi is about digging up the detail in songs, the things you have never heard before. The traditional hi-fi enthusiast will build a system from separate components, often with each item from a different manufacturer specialising in a particular component. This provides flexibility for piece-by-piece purchases or upgrades.
