  • First published article is live.

    I have been writing for Headphone.guru for a couple of years. Recently I was approached by HiFi+ to write some reviews for them. My first one is in the new March 2016 issue 133. Alan asked my to cover the Spread Spectrum technologies Son of Ampzilla II. Nice to have a wider scope of gear to play with. It was fun to get the magazine in the mail and see the printed article. I hope everyone likes reading the article as much as I had fun writing it. Cool beans....

            Thanks Marty. I expect it'll be a couple of weeks before the article makes it to the web site. I will post links when they are available provided it is OK with Myles and Audionirvana.org's policies.

                    Good for you. Alan is a gentleman, funny and charming and HiFi+ was long a favorite magazine.

                      Alan has been fun getting know. I already knew Chris Martens so this has been a nice time getting started.

                        Yes, I dropped Alan a note about the site a while back but guess he's busy.

                            I like HiFi+, mainly because of the coverage of new music from a European view. A few of my favorite recordings were discovered in the pages, which never received any coverage stateside in any paper publication.

                            Good luck in your future endeavors and if you have any thoughts on new recordings feel free to share.
