About me

Introduction Long term music lover, always buying new music and investing in gear for long-term satisfaction. Educated in experimental methods, I don't believe everything we hear can be measured yet but I do believe blind testing can help put the claims in perspective and I bring this to bear in my reviews for Affordable Audio and HiFi'Zine, which I help edit. Am grown up, have a real career, own a house, go to live music and play an instrument. Have a music library of more than 2500 recordings on vinyl and (SA)CD. I don't do home theater or surround sound. Believe music is a natural stimulant. I write - and I take writing seriously. If you want to know more, ask me.
Favorite Music Everything from ancient to metal. Current favorite listening: Tord Gustavsen Trio, Django Reinhardt, Joe Pass Janos Starker, Kat Edmondson
