Where were you born?

You mentioned that you and your family are musicians – can you tell me more about it?
When did you move to the USA?
What was your first occupation there?
How did you feel there – a man from Europe?

You moved to Cyprus later – why?
What did you like there and what dislike?

Why did you move to Switzerland?
You mentioned that you found a paradise there – can you tell me how come?
Where you live there – pleas tell me some details about your neighborhood.
Tell me something about audio scene there – I mean megabuck, very high quality products; am I right?
How is your relationship between printed and Internet-based magazines? What strengths and weakness they have?
Self-publishing meanwhile overrides or circumvents traditional ‘rite-of-passage’ apprenticeships. Anyone who so desires can operate and run an online magazine. Qualifications and professionalism need not factor one iota. That’s a huge demerit and there exist plenty of examples which are no credit to our profession. With the advent of blogs and forums the distinction between ‘professional’ and ‘casual’ online content has begun to blur further .This weighs in on the side of discredit for those amongst us who work hard to apply ‘old print-magazine type’ standards as best we can (seeing we’re entirely self-taught and –made).
What is the future of the audio – can you predict any path it will go?
How about vinyl – is this just temporary revival or something longer?
You told me that you don’t like very high price gear – why? Are you thinking it is always overpriced?
You told me that you prefer low wattage amps and high sensitive speakers – you mean that it is a better scenario than low sensitive + high wattage?
