StereoNET, a leading web publication focusing on news, reviews and information relating to Hi-Fi, Home Cinema, Tech and Gadgets has this week launched its UK specific website.

Founded in Australia in 1999 by English-born enthusiast, Marc Rushton, StereoNET’s Australian publication now attracts over 200,000 monthly unique visitors. The organisation also hosts the annual International Hi-Fi Show in Melbourne.

In 2017 StereoNET also acquired Australian website DTV, a website with over 100,000 registered members that focused on digital television and home cinema. The DTV publication was merged with StereoNET Australia.

Later the same year, StereoNET expanded into New Zealand with its acquisition of the long-established print magazine and website AudioEnz, appointing local audiophile and writer, Gary Pearce, as Editor.

StereoNET UK Editor, Jay GarrettStereoNET maintains independent publications in Australia, New Zealand and now United Kingdom with the most recent appointment of Yorkshire-raised Canadian, Jay Garrett, as StereoNET UK Editor.

StereoNET UK will retain the values of its antipodean cousins but will have a distinctly British voice.

Garrett has over a decade’s worth of experience as the Founder of leading UK consumer electronics website, GadgetyNews.

He has partnered with other publications along the way and is currently the resident Techno Geek at luxury lifestyle magazine, Oracle Time.

His Northern heritage is most likely the driving force behind his plain speaking which is no doubt a breath of fresh air in the heady environment of initials and acronyms synonymous with the world of Hi-Fi.

Jay said:

I’m proud to take up the role as Editor at StereoNET UK. You can expect reports of the latest news from the industry as well as a wide range of reviews taking in everything from cables to stands, speakers to streamers, turntables to cans.


With our sister publications in other parts of the world, our resources stretch far and wide, and we look forward to collectively delivering a high-quality publication to local enthusiasts and industry members.

While maintaining independent publications, the StereoNET team which also includes industry veterans Peter Familari and Robert Follis work collectively and now on a global level.
