After 4 - The Secret Life of Audiophiles
Every day there is a secret war happening in the lounges and garages of New Zealand. We're not talking casualties here, but rather decibels as hi-fi enthusiasts tweak their stereo systems to get the best sound.
In the Secret Life of Audiophiles we infiltrate the homes of three self-confessed hi-fi nuts to find out what's behind the drive for perfect sound and how much they're prepared to pay for aural nirvana.
And Nick reviews a CD/DVD package from Wellington guitarist and luthier Paddy Burgin.
