Shop selling high-fidelity[1] audio equipment (music players, amplifiers, speakers, cables), which has minimal amounts of noise and distortion and an accurate frequency response.

It is often a meeting point for home audio enthusiasts (audiophiles[2]).

May offer repair services and custom built equipment.

How to map

Set a node or draw as an area along the shop outline. Tag it with shop=hifi and name=*.

Tags used in combination

Similar Tags

  • shop=electronics - a shop selling electronics. The suggested distinction is that a shop=electronics shop is "primarily focused on consumer electronics, and may sell hi-fi components, but is not focused on them and not a meeting point for audiophiles". However that's quite a subtle and subjective distinction, and something which may be better represented as a property tag of a shop=electronics.
  • shop=music - a shop selling recorded music which you might buy to play on your hifi (CDs, vinyl, or other formats) A.K.A. a record shop.
