Documentaries about audiophiles or hi-fi

post #1 of 10

Hello guys.

Are there any video documentaries or tutorials about hi-fi, audiophiles etc. which you could recommend? I'm both looking at learning more on this great hobby and for entertainment.

Of course this is no documentary, but your question made me think about a film called 'High Fidelity'. Well, I bet almost everybody around here knows it. Consider this as recommendation if you haven't seen it yet!

"Vinyl". It's not to everyone's taste, but I loved it .... especially since many years ago I either met or ran into at various local audio shows, a couple of the local oddball record collector's featured in the movie. The movie is about vinyl record collectors. I caught this gem on TV just after it was released and unable to find a copy for sale anywhere, tracked down Alan Zweig, the writer, producer, videographer, and star, on the internet, spoke to him on the phone, then drove over to his house to buy a signed VHS copy directly from him.

EDIT: I'm glad you reminded me about this movie as I just noticed he's also released "I Curmudgeon", the documentary he told me he was working on at the time. I'm going to have to find a copy of that now.

I'm picturing a knock off of the classic "Cable Madness".

I know it's not a video, but I'll recommend this anyway

Thank you very much for your suggestions guys - I will try to track every one of them down and watch it (and check out the amazon book).
