Where does "MidFi" differ from "HiFi" or "LOFI"?

thanks @audphile1 I see that that’s what you have (besides other models). I will look into it

it is more accurate too. There are sounds that are simply not "read" by the MF. High frequencies mostly. After my 2 months long testing 4 subwoofers and 1 phono stage, and my limited budget, I need to decide which one I need more. Given that I ne...

you had a post a few weeks ago about your problems and nobody understood what your issues were with the Sonus Faber Serafino. It seems that you just want something else for the sake of change - instead of tweaking what you have? I mean, every comp...
