The idea behind it

The online Hifi Convention '22 initiated by in-akustik is or rather was a free online event where Hifi fans can listen to specialist lectures, product presentations, expert interviews and guides on all aspects of Hifi, streaming, home cinema etc. from the comfort of their own sofa. If there is sufficient demand, we will reissue the in-akustik HiFi Convention with new, current topics. If you are interested, please let us know and sign up for the waiting list or the newsletter (footer). We will keep you up to date.

She reinvented herself in 2014 with her solo debut 'Queendom Come' and became an esteemed hi-fi icon with the follow-up 'The Swan'. With the #AirplayForArtists initiative, she is campaigning for independent musicians in the first year of the pandemic.
