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: After becoming an audiophile, James Cameron once called me and said: “Hey mate, I have this mind-blowing idea of resurrecting the action movie genre that redefined our generation! I’m all eyes and ears, I’ve replied back. How about John Conor travels back in time to 2018 and …
