Describe Your Current Gear

As a recording engineer, I have several setups in my house. My studio setup is a pair of Dynaudio BM6a’s and a pair of JBL 305 with a 10” Sub. My main home theater setup is JBLs with a Sony 5.1 receiver. My backup system is Klipsch RB35s with a C5 center channel, 12” 400 watt sub and RB15 surrounds run by a Sony 5.1 receiver. I have another Sony receiver setup to run stereo only to a pair of B&W DM220’s. I also have miscellaneous speakers laying around from Boston Acoustics and Cerwin Vega.

Musical Moment

First time I performed for an audience. I believe I was only 7 years old. I initially was too nervous to play but my teacher calmed me down and I nailed the piece of music. The applause hooked me and I didn't want to leave the stage!

Favorite Bands

Genesis, Fleming and John, Van Halen

Hi-Fi Intro

Showing my age but a friend of mine’s dad had a quadrophonic system in his basement that we werent allowed to touch...of course we did! It was a Teac reel to reel feeding Sansui components and Cerwin Vega speakers. My favorite tune to hear on that system was Lunatic Fringe by Red Ryder. Years later after I became a recording engineer I got the chance to hear a client’s Martin Logan monolith/Krell powered system with proper vinyl. Blown away!!

Audio Passion in One Sentence

Music has been an important part of my life since I was five years old and my career has been dedicated to accurately reproducing artists’ music and that has led to searching out the most accurate systems to play that music back on.
