BREAKING NEWS:Two OZ Hi Fi Shows Merge

Marc Rushton, Managing Director of StereoNET Marketing Pty Ltd, said: “We are very pleased to have finally reached an agreement with Chester Group, for the benefit of the Australian hi-fi industry. Roy and his team did an outstanding job reviving shows in Australia, and we recognise their achievements. “

Effective immediately, StereoNET will acquire all rights, intellectual property and assets of the Australian Hi-Fi and AV Show, consolidating both shows into the StereoNET Hi-Fi Show planned for June 3-5, 2022, at the Pullman Albert Park Hotel, Melbourne.

Future shows will alternate between Melbourne and Sydney each year.
