Things have been busy in the HiFi Hunter camp lately. There’s been a lot of work under the bonnet to address some stability issues with the search engine. These should now be addressed and you should have no more problems with failed searches.

The search results are now sorted better to ensure the most relevant and closest matches are at the top.

A new search spider has been rolled out is now indexing many additional sites already, including vinylengine.com, theartofsound.net, thecrossovernetwork.co.uk, audiomart.co.uk, decibelhifi.com.au, tirnahifi.org, htguide.com, Canterbury hifi and Sevenoaks Sound & Vision, to name a few. Many more sites are being added to the index all the time, so watch this space.

Happy hunting!

Nearly there. A brand new HiFi Search Engine is just around the corner. Watch this space!

Anyone else can't stop rerunning the Goth on BBC series? Siouxsie, Cure, Sisters, Mission, Depeche Mode, Nick Cave... Easily makes up for not making it to Whitby Goth Weekend.

Some key infrastructure updates have now been completed. The database should be a bit faster now. Still got a couple of slow queries to address, but I'm looking into it.

Good news analogue lovers, UK FM switch off has been postponed indefinitely. As we've all known all along, DAB just doesn't cut it.

I'm pleased to announce that Hi-Fi Hunter has now been extended to cover Canada. You can now use your favourite used HiFi search engine to find the best pre-owned bargains in local to you in Canada. Just like the other local versions of Hi-Fi Hunter, all the main forums, classified sites and ebay are included in the index and all searched concurrently, to save you time visiting every site manually.

A good DAC in your system can be a great investment, perfect for getting top quality sound from your PC, MAC, streaming device, or just eeking a bit more from your CD player. But which to choose, stick with a well known brand (Arcam, Cambridge Audio, Musical Fidelity, Audiolab etc) or maybe try one of the unknowns from the far east that is flooding ebay? If you choose the latter option, it can be a minefield ascertaining which are well designed and implemented bargains, and which are just cobbled together rubbish...

Royd Audio were famous for their Minstrel speakers, a fun, musical and cheap little miniature floor standing speaker. However the Revelation range were Royd's swan song. The culmination of years of experience and fine tuning of a winning formula. Here we have the RR1, the Minstrel's beaters from the Revelation range. Extremely rare, very good and beautifully hand made in Shropshire. A final piece of craftsmanship from Joe Akroyd before going into retirement.

This monster AV receiver was released by Rotel in 2007 and is one hell of a jammed packed box of tricks. You've got full 7.1 surround support, 4 HDMI inputs (1 output), video upscaler, 4 zone multi-room options, loads of digital and analogue inputs and 75W of output per channel! Rotel are a proven name, with a reputation for quality kit, a clear step up from your cheaper Onkyo's and Sherwood's  receivers. Arcam gear may have the edge on sound quality and musical presentation, but the Rotel's tend to trump on spec.
