My name is Lachlan and I’m a massive fan of all things music-related. I grew up in a home where I heard everything from Uriah Heep and The Who to Canterbury Tales, the Muppet Movie soundtrack and the 1812 Overture.
I consider myself a music lover as opposed to an audiophile. To me, music and sound must be as practical as it is exceptional. I don’t believe in finicky audio setups that require massive expense and sensitive tuning and adjustment. That’s not to say I’m unaware of the benefits because I have heard truly amazing sound and appreciate it. The difference is that I want to be able to just enjoy my music without any fuss or hardship.
I studied speech pathology at university and have a thorough understanding of hearing. In addition, I have researched a lot about reproduction and dynamics as an enthusiast and as a car audio installer. My focus is always on natural, true-to-life sound and that is how I consider any product I listen to.
As well as being a music lover, I love to experience new speakers, headphones, sources (i.e. gadgets) and music. Whenever I buy new gadgets, speakers and headphones I like to read reviews and do my research. Unfortunately, I’ve found the reviews a bit hit and miss because it’s all so opinion-based. There’s no simple solution for that because sound and listening are so subjective, but I thought I’d throw my hat in the ring and try to provide a mostly objective alternative for any sources and speakers/headphones that I get to experience.
I really hope this blog helps you, informs you or entertains you. I also write another blog on a completely different topic. It’s called Find Your Level and it’s about communication, psychology, business management and spirituality; yes, spirituality. It’s an interesting mix so I hope you’ll check it out.
Happy reading and happy listening!
