Music lover. Hifi enthusiast. There is such negative connotation associated with the word audiophile I hesitate to describe myself as such to anyone outside the rarified world of audiophilia. So, what is an audiophile? Simply, it means I care about sound quality. I want to hear music reproduced with fidelity far beyond what laptop speakers or Apple EarPods can achieve. It’s my passion for music that drives this desire for good sound.
My journey down this path actually started many years ago when I was a cash-strapped young man unable to afford much. Fortunately, time has helped a bit and while exorbitant prices still exist for the few, there is an extraordinary amount of affordable and truly excellent gear for the rest of us.
