Top 10 Hi-Fi News Stories: April 17, 2022

For the week ending April 17, 2022 we roundup the top 10 Hi-Fi news stories of the week from across the web.

Good Vibes

1. Abi Farrell Music

🇬🇧 Abi Farrell is a beautiful singer and artist.  Shoutout to 🎵 The Big AC Records Live Soul Revue Tour. “It’s gonna be impossible not to dance and it’s all going to be a bit emotional (in a good way) as we celebrate all we’ve been up to in the past few years.”

2. Ferit Odman

🇹🇷 Ferit Odman is an amazing jazz drummer and he’s also an audiophile! Go check out and his Insta to see what he’s listening on and to.

3. Audiophiles Giving Back

🇺🇸 Steve is giving good vibes daily into our community through his many interviews and sharing viewer systems. Did you check out the viewer systems compilation video, or submit a picture of your system? Did you get featured? Which one is your favorite, or one you’re most curious about?

Me; those Tektons, WOW. Thanks Steve! 

4. How Schiit’s Made

🇺🇸 Jana Dagdagan video creator films Jason Stoddard Co-Founder of Schiit Audio on the manufacturing process of the Tyr choke-input mono block amplifier, high performance and affordable-ish. Thank you, Jana, Jason, John, and audio community. 

5. Canadian Made

🇨🇦 Trevor Doyle of Massif Audio Design is an audiophile who makes some seriously great audio racks. Did you catch the record weight made for EgglestonWorks? Nothing but love for our audio community in the central and eastern part of the True North strong and free.

6. Turtle Therapy

🇺🇸 HiFi Turtle and Bass Therapy announce that they will be hosting 5 minute HiFi Therapy sessions outside of the Knowledge Room at AXPONA on Friday and Saturday April 22-23, 2022.  It’s great to see Audiophiles advocating for our community and their local HiFi shops; Quintessence Audio.

7. Digital 01

🇩🇪 Hans Beekhuyzen AES Member, writer and reviewer has been providing no nonsense digital audio reviews for many years. Do you follow Hans?

8. Living Her Best ROSIE

🇺🇸 Are you overcoming circumstances to empower one or many? Rise Up Rosie @rise_up_rosie is a platform to share empowering stories. My schoolyard audiophile friend Emiko @ThatHiFiGirl talks about what it means to be a woman audiophile and welcomer of others into our community – whether you know it yet or not. “Music ultimately is one medium that can – and has – changed the world time after time.” Gender has no boundaries in how we RISE UP, just do it. 

9. Does Cork Beat Felt? 

🇺🇸 Chris at Analog Restorations is an audiophile giving back. Have you tried a cork platter mat upgrade? Why not have it with your logo, custom design, or perhaps with Karen Payton art.

Limited Edition Platter Mats to support Ukrainian Humanitarian Relief by Analog Restorations are also still available.

10. Throw Your Best!

🇺🇸 I applaud Danny for doing it again, tackling the tweaks. In his latest video “What’s up with Audiophile Cable Risers?” Danny talks about demonstrable effects of risers. Will this impact your system, it depends on the bottlenecks in your system, so maybe yes or no.

    Hey Scott,

    Thanks for mentioning our video on cable risers. I appreciate it.
