Bio

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.

Disclaimer : The FiiO M6 was sent to us free of charge in exchange for our honest review. We thank FiiO for that! For me newest addition to the M series of DAPs from FiiO came as a surprise.
