Me and My Systems


My personal manifesto, adapted from ReMusic’s one, is: “I am in love with the means to reproduce – well – the music”:

My passion for the Hi-Fi – lucky thing – began more than forty years ago and I have cultivated it by studying and experimenting.

I judge the devices for their performances but I am not satisfied if they are not thought, designed and made in order to justify their price. Otherwise, they reach just one part of my heart.
