Welcome from Seattle

Got the audiophile bug during an internship, when I realized that high-cost used audio equipment didn’t lose value over time, so it wasn’t actually an expensive hobby!

Favorite system was still an older tube integrated fed by an SACD player through a pair of monitor-style NHT 1.5.

Not great at hardware, but as a comp-sci guy, I’ve spent 14 years in the software industry. So, what gets me excited is when I can take a simple, inexpensive DIY speaker kit and make it sound great through the magic of software, using DSP, active crossovers, FIR filters, DRC, etc.
