Few words about Me

I am passionated by music, electronics and digital. I always try to get the best possible rendering of music.
After working on speakers, amps, preamps, DAC, it is important to find the best sources of music.
So you have to find the best edition of an album, vinyl, cd, sacd, digital and the choices are multiple. It is not possible to review the hundreds of versions of an album, but it is possible to compare a few different media.

I like sharing about these subjects, do not hesitate to contact me.
