Home is where…

  • Home.

    Home is where the heart is.

    Home is where the couch is.

    Home is where the coffee machine is.

    Home is where familiar music lives on an hard-drive or on a shelf; indie/alternative rock and electronic, please.

    Home is where a range of familiar audio hardware is stored: in the cellar, in the upstairs hallway and in a kitchen corner.

    Home is where a loudspeaker’s interaction with the listening room is known.

    Home is where review units arrive and leave.

    Home is where I choose my work hours.

    Home is where review units can be compared to other units.

    Home is where time can be taken with A/B testing; weeks, not hours.

    Home is where hardware (and software) performance can be triangulated.

    Home is where findings are noted and conclusions are drawn.

    Home is where photographs are shot and edited.

    Home is where videos are filmed.

    Home – and nowhere else – is where subjective review commentary is reliably executed.
