I have always been very fond of music and of any device to reproduce it. I am an explosion of ideas and a perfectionist. In the last years, after many tests with the electronic gears of the main brands, I became a DIY fan, helped by a friend of mine who is crazier than me… He is the brawn and I am the “ear”.
I am spellbound from the loudspeakers. After several experiences with conventional loudspeakers I have undertaken the DIY way with satisfaction, making non conventional high-efficiency loudspeakers. My system, in a continuous evolution, allows me to try out new things, but my deeply critic sense allows me also to recognize any wrong choice or design I could do.
