Over the break I’ve been working on a few things and wanted to share a short post to draw your attention to it. I always enjoy browsing the Wall of Fame / Hall of Fame areas of various audio websites so I thought I’d create a version of my own, but rather than trying to craft a copy of everyone else’s idea I decided to share with you the details of the gear that I consider good enough to continue using every single day. So, without further adieu or explanation, may I direct your attention to the new page called “On My Desk & In My Bag”. I hope you’ll find the content useful and informative as a quick reference to reviews of the gear I really love.

I’ve been writing reviews now for around 15 years and I think this might be the very first time that I’ve ever re-written a review – not just edited a draft, but completely re-written a review. The reason I’ve re-writing this one is that the Nighthawk headphones from Audioquest are completely and utterly unique and require the right explanation to do them justice. Hopefully I can fulfil that challenge.
My first take tried to skate over the technology elements of the Nighthawks because I’m all about how it sounds, but I realised that I can’t do justice to these headphones without a thorough explanation so please grab your favourite drink, a snack and a comfy chair and enjoy the read.
