I know this sounds a little "pretentious, but I was asked to start this thread by another member, and it will actually help me quickly locate past reviews I've written for cross referencing - so here goes ......

The purpose of this thread is to accumulate in one area (this first post) links to all of the reviews and comparisons I've written over my time on Head-Fi, and also to advise any upcoming reviews I might be working on.

Others can feel free to use the thread to discuss any of the reviews I've posted, give ideas for anything you'd like me to look at in the future (within reason), and also give me any critique or thoughts on what you'd like changed, added or omitted in my reviewing style (I'll honestly take these onboard - but won't make any promises if I don't agree with them).

I'll also use the thread to update any subscribers re any happenings that might shape my review directions in the future.

I'll tidy the IEM table up sometime tomorrow.  Late here (or rather very early in the AM) - going to get some shut-eye

Excellent job organizing everything!!!  I have been asked so many times to sort out my review page (in the signature link); will have to do it sooner or later cause now it's a chronological mess lol!!!
 
Big fan of your work, and looking forward to more of your reviews!!!

This is a fantastic resource! You should include a link to your test tracks page... I have used it as a discovery tool a number of times :)
