Akapela Open enjoys a hard-won reputation as one of the most insightful and influential high-end audio and music publications written in the English language. As the magazine’s motto suggests, Akapela Open covers all things involved in faithfully “reproducing the recorded arts,” and does so with a just-right combination of appropriate seriousness and sharp-edged (though always good-natured) wit.

Akapela Open looks at audio and music from a distinctively European perspective, and is a magazine written by and for those who share a passion for superior sound quality and great music.
