With its roots firm in the last quarter of the 20th century, HVT became a household name after switching its name from Stereo Hifi Test (founded in 1972) to Hifi Video Test. Reason for the name change was the introduction of video, fueled by the acquisition of Klank&Beeld in the beginning of the eighties. In oktober 2009 HVT was acquired by Brinkman Publishers and merged with its biggest rival magazine Home Studio. HVT became the oldest ánd biggest magazine in the Netherlands and Flanders after the acquisition of Vi-Fi Magazine in 2011. In 2015 Ernst Neve was appointed to succeed Theo Wubbolts as editor-in-chief of HVT and introduced some subtle changes in both content and looks of the magazine in an effort to innovate and make HVT more appealing to a broader group of readers. His new vision resulted in a repositioning of the brand, fitting better in our day and age. From this point on HVT wants to reach out to new audiences with the help of its ambassadors, being its readers and subscribers. By fusing the experience of yesterday with the vision of tomorrow we will do all we can to inform everybody about the joy and emotion quality music can bring them. To make hifi enjoyable once again. Maybe not in the ways we knew, but most certainly in the ways we do now. To accomplish that HVT visits the most important international fairs (like CES, High End Munich and IFA) and every national fair in the Benelux. Apart from the novelties and trends we pick up there, we bring exciting news on hifi and AV both from abroad and from the home front, report dealer visits, review quality AV equipment, write background articles, do factory visits and perform the comprehensive of tests. All this to achieve our common goal: spreading the word of quality hifi to as much people possible. To speak in the words of a wise character: “to infinity and beyond!”

    Onkreukbaar Duits Door Michel van Meersbergen HVT 1, januari 2020 Had collega John van der Veer de eer het in Stuttgart gehuisveste Gauder Akustik met een bezoek te kunnen verblijden; op zijn beurt had ondergetekende het geluk een paar Gauders ter test in huis te hebben. Verschil moet er zijn, maar per saldo zijn wij […]
  • Paradigm Persona B 19th January 2020
    Vloeiend, warm en zijdig Door Christiaan Punter HVT 1, januari 2020 Laat me voor de verandering eens een recensie beginnen met de conclusie: Super-coherent en gearticuleerd, zeer hoog oplossend, absoluut ongekleurd en uiterst transparant, bieden de Persona B’s een algehele prestatie die ik nog niet eerder heb gehoord in deze prijsklasse. Zo, recensie klaar! Nou […]
  • Revel F226BE 19th January 2020
    Revel en de Uniforme Afstraling Door John van der Veer HVT 1, januari 2020 De laatste date met een Revel luidspreker dateert van ruim een jaar geleden. Het betrof toen de F35, een betaalbare vloerstaander met een opmerkelijke prijs/kwaliteitsverhouding. ‘Goedkoop’ is zo’n kwalificatie die de lading niet dekt en de term klinkt ook als zodanig. […]
