I’m a Graphic/UI designer, user experience specialist, a tech addict, an enthusiastic entrepreneur and last but not least - a passionate music lover. I love art in any shape or form, transforming my music collection into an essential part of my entire life. I’m not your typical hardcode audiophile, but it’s still the dominant hobby that drives me forward. Being a tech savvy, I’m very much into Future-Fi listening, choosing wireless streaming and state-of-the-art digital to analog conversion techniques. I have to confess that turntables didn’t catch my attention, but I love interplaying and discovering great sounding digital to analog sources. I love music that tries to be…musical, interesting and uncommon at the same time.
Lead photo and videographer of www.soundnews.net. Loves his 4K projector and multi-channel setup more than his mother in law, has also a subwoofer and a projection screen fetish (bigger is always better). Kisses good-night his daughters and his camera lens every.single.day. Doesn’t drink liquors and it’s too serious at times, his arch-nemesis is his partner (the other guy from around here).
I’m a close friend of Sandu, we are usually meeting and share impressions about the latest amplifiers and DACs releases. I am an art lover; a music enthusiast at heart and a curious traveler. When I’m off duty from my day job or resting my ears from long listening sessions, I’m relaxing playing a few rounds of chess. I am a huge admirer of David Gilmour and Mark Knopfler and I consider them the true living legends of rock. You can call me a walking encyclopedia for all things Pink Floyd – as they forever changed my life for the better. Although I don’t listen to Diana Krall that often, I have a crush on the London Grammar vocalist, Hannah Reid.
Founder and lead editor of www.soundnews.net. At a younger age I discovered that my stock Walkman headphones and my home boom-box sucked big time. Since then I wander the world in a quest to find the world’s best transducers in a headphone or speaker form. When low at inspiration I drink potions mixed with strong spirits and I raise that volume up, I headbang at rocks gigs and I’m a pretty good wedding crasher. I’m sorry I don’t have a favorite band, I like almost everything out there…except for Diana Krall.
