Hificritic - new British hifi magazine

Some renowned British hifi journalists (Martin Colloms, Paul Messenger) have turned their back to commercialism and founded ad-free, bimonthly hifi magazine Hificritic. Magazine is purely subscription-only.

Somebody might conclude that Hificritic fills the hole in the UK market left by HiFi+. I personally felt that in the beginning HiFi+ was very well editored grass-root hifi magazine, but unfortunately it closed the gap with mainstream magazines within 2 years of existence. It was acquired in 2006 by Absolute Multimedia, owners of longstanding United States hifi magazine The Absolute Sound.

The Absolute Sound is also a partnered magazine with Enjoy the, one of the Web's leading sites with a immense variety of both audiophile equipment and music reviews.
