    As an audio designer, I strive for sophistication in refinement, rather than mere complexity.

    The quest for absolute highest quality sound reproduction is my central imperative.

    Modularity, simplicity, serviceability, durability: principles that correlate with timeless, obsolescence-proof devices of enduring value and utility.
