I was formally trained as PA/Studio audio engineer, though went the IT route with the advent of the Internet.
I tend to favor no frills pro equipment, or solid/interesting designs, and love DIY and Chi-Fi gem hunting.
I prefer using my ears over measurement devices (though of course use them, but they’re the means, not the goal.)
Have been hacking around audio electronics/headphones since I was 12, DIY audio/headphone forums since the 2000’s, beggining with the Cmoy at HeadWize.
