About
Musical Fidelity
Musical Fidelity has been designing and manufacturing Hi-Fi electronics for over thirty years and we are proud to have become one of the best-known brands in the Hi-Fi industry.
We are driven by a passion for wonderful music and the challenge of world-class engineering. We approached each new design by looking for the absolute best solution to a given challenge and embrace new technologies in our designs as well as developing more traditional methods for even greater performance.
While we aim to give you as much information as possible through this website there is simply no substitute to hearing a Musical Fidelity product for yourself. With this in mind we would encourage you to visit one of our authorised dealers to hear just how wonderful your favorite music can sound.
