Vancouver Audio Festival 2018 kicks off this Friday

Coming up fast…

Time is rapidly approaching for Vancouver-area audiophiles to get their sonic freak on with Hi-fi Centre  once again hosting the Vancouver Audio Festival which runs from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday evening, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday afternoon. This year, Hi-Fi Centre owner Igor Kivritsky has helped to curate 10 demonstration areas featuring bleeding-edge high-fidelity equipment legends like Devialet, Focal, Naim, Bowers & Wilkins, Sonus Faber, McIntosh Labs, Clearaudio, and YG Acoustics to name but a few.

Monster McIntosh Labs.

Hi-Fi Centre is also now representing Klipsch Heritage Speakers, so this is a long-lost opportunity for many audiophile enthusiasts to hear some of the most legendary, high-efficiency, horn-loaded loudspeaker designs in history including the Cornwall, Heresy, and Forte models.


For more information contact Kivritsky at either 604-688-5502 locally, or 1-888-232-9995 outside the Lower Mainland, or via email at
