This year's Melbourne International Hi-Fi Show is on track to be the greatest yet with unprecedented ticket sales, over 110 world-leading brands on display, and never before seen in Australia attractions.

So why is the Melbourne International HiFi Show, presented by StereoNET, Australia’s best? The answer is as simple as pointing out that it has the right vibe and energy.

Plus, it’s held just out of the crowed inner-city at the world-famous home of Australian Formula 1, Albert Park. There’s much less traffic, easy on-site parking and public transport around the corner.

After covering Hi-Fi shows for 40 years, I can share with you the view that Australia’s youngest Hi-Fi show is also the nation’s most interesting in terms of the quality of the equipment you’ll get to see and hear.

That friendly vibe is thanks to the organiser’s vision of a Hi-Fi event that brings a fresh atmosphere to an event that has felt tired in the past. Making music lovers even more passionate about their music is what a show should do!

The show is also the venue for the annual Australian Record Fair and only 3-day event of its type in the country. An event presenting thousands of new and used vinyl records for visitors to browse and buy. Along with vinyl LPs and singles, the fair is an ideal opportunity to sort through a mountain load of music rarities and collectables.

If vinyl is your thing, Australia's own turntable aficionado Mark Döhmann will be on hand delivering his free turntable setup seminars.

You also won't want to miss the Krix Ballroom. It's a new grand space not seen before at previous shows, purpose-built by Krix loudspeakers to cater for a home cinema demonstration like no other. Watch this space!

With so much on offer, you'd be mad to miss out on the Early Bird Ticket Offer that is about to end. Just use code BESTSHOW on the ticketing page to enjoy 50% off your tickets.

The 2018 Melbourne International Hi-Fi Show is on from Friday 12th to Sunday 14th October, at the Pullman Mercure Hotel, Queens Road, Albert Park.
