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.

My Video Review: While SMSL Audio always resonated with affordable audio that anybody could enjoy without wandering into the four-figure territory, a time came in trying a slice of that fat and delicious pie that’s called High-End Audio. Everything changed when SMSL revealed their VMV line a few …
My Video Review: The team behind Musician Audio is surely a proud one, as they are part of one of the fastest growing Hi-Fi brands coming from China. Three years ago, nobody knew about them, but that changed in a flash when their winged Pegasus R-2R ladder DAC released into the wild, that is still …
My Video Review: Immediately after finishing my Denafrips Terminator Plus review, I was 100% sure that Terminator Plus (TPlus from now on) was going to be my forever and ever end-game DAC. I shot an email to Vinshine Audio that supplied a review sample and I kindly asked for a discount as I wanted …
