However, don't worry if you can't be there in person, as professionally recorded highlights will be released as 24-bit, hi-res 'SXSW Sessions' EPs, available exclusively to stream and download on Qobuz in the coming months.

In keeping with Qobuz's independent-minded, “boutique in a superstore world” approach, the sessions will feature an array of top indie and experimental artists performing stripped-down sets in front of small audiences.

Slated for sessions are Brooklyn-based pop singer Barrie; the newly-formed all-star outfit featuring Beto Martínez, Alex Chavez, Victor “El Guámbito” Cruz, and John Speice, Caramelo Haze; psych-folk-funk drummer and DJ Daniel Villarreal; London-based jazz composer and multi-instrumentalist DoomCannon; Canadian alt-rock outfit Kiwi Jr.; acclaimed NY-based indie rock artist Miss Grit (Margaret Sohn); LA-based musician and visual artist Shana Cleveland (of La Luz); and British R&B singer Yazmin Lacey. Miss Grit and Yazmin Lacey's last albums were bestowed the prestigious Qobuzissime award, given to a select group of early-career albums every year that have ventured into unexplored territories.

Sujan Hong, Qobuz USA Head of Music Content, told StereoNET:

Qobuz is really excited to work with this great, independent line-up. I can't wait to watch these talented artists perform in such a cool space and then be able to share the music exclusively with our discerning users.

If you heading to Austin, the Qobuz sessions are free to attend with an official SXSW accreditation. RSVP for your place here:

applause awards

Each time StereoNET reviews a product, it is considered for an Applause Award. Winning one marks it out as a design of great quality and distinction – a special product in its class, on the grounds of either performance, value for money, or usually both.

Applause Awards are personally issued by StereoNET’s global Editor-in-Chief, David Price – who has over three decades of experience reviewing hi-fi products at the highest level – after consulting with our senior editorial team. They are not automatically given with all reviews, nor can manufacturers purchase them.

The StereoNET editorial team includes some of the world’s most experienced and respected hi-fi journalists with a vast wealth of knowledge. Some have edited popular English language hi-fi magazines, and others have been senior contributors to famous audio journals stretching back to the late 1970s. And we also employ professional IT and home theatre specialists who work at the cutting edge of today’s technology.

We believe that no other online hi-fi and home cinema resource offers such expert knowledge, so when StereoNET gives an Applause Award, it is a trustworthy hallmark of quality. Receiving such an award is the prerequisite to becoming eligible for our annual Product of the Year awards, awarded only to the finest designs in their respective categories. Buyers of hi-fi, home cinema, and headphones can be sure that a StereoNET Applause Award winner is worthy of your most serious attention.
