About this Website


Launched by Simon Wilce in 2015, is the go-to hi-fi component and music reviews website designed to engage fellow enthusiasts looking to make informed purchasing decisions and share a passion for high-quality audio within a like-minded community.

Our mission bridges the gap between gadget reviews and more specialist ‘audiophile’ reviews websites. The site seeks to cover the more affordable ‘real world’ audio market place and to articulate product and music reviews in simpler terms accessible to all with our own subjective evaluation system that considers performance, ease of use and value for money.

News, reviews and views

With 500 pages of industry news and product and music reviews already online, the site covers the most relevant content for the quality audio enthusiast and seeks to review the latest hi-fi components and the best albums to demo a music system and experience it at its best. As the site grows, we will be looking to write and gather comment on the latest tech and industry trends and encourage debate and engagement through our growing social media communities.

The team

Simon is joined by Lee Dunkley, former editor at Hi-Fi Choice magazine (2013 to 2020), who brings his editorial and publishing expertise, social media knowledge and a passion for all-things consumer tech and hi-fi.

Jo Holmes also joins the HF&MS team. A popular personality within the hi-fi and AV industries, Jo brings ten years’ experience working on print and digital advertising and publicity teams and is well-known within the sector.

As a team, we have over 30 years’ experience in the hi-fi, AV and consumer tech industries, and listening to music on quality audio systems is our shared passion.
