Happy New Year!

My New Yearโ€™s travels are a recent, but by now well-established tradition. This year I am a little closer to home than last year, which is to say in London. Itโ€™s one of my favourite cities to visit – much to the surprise of many of the locals I have to say – but there’s tons of stuff to see and do and I really like the vibe of the place (again, to the surprise of many ๐Ÿ˜‰ ).

I’m here for another couple of days and I have absolutely nothing audio-related planned but that is on purpose. That said, I am of course keeping an eye on the local sales ads just in case there is something on sale that I did not know I needed, but that’s about it ๐Ÿ˜€

Best wishes for a happy new year to all my readers and I hope to be able to bring you more interesting posts in 2019 ๐Ÿ™‚


Happy New Year!

Once again a new year is upon us and I’l like to wish everyone reading the blog all the best for 2018! ๐Ÿ™‚

The new year also means that I will hopefully start posting audio topics again soon. My house move is more or less completed and all that remains is to unpack and sort about twice as many DIY-related moving boxes as I was expecting to have ๐Ÿ™‚

First up though is a couple of weeks of travelling, so the new year for me started 7 hours earlier than usual and also meant I could watch quite a different fireworks show at midight than what I usually see at home. Fireworks coming off a 500m tall building is really quite impressive!


Happy New Year!

Yes, another year has gone and so up comes another opportunity to reflect on the status of the blog ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, sort of anyway. I would like to have said that I am writing this on New Years Day from my desk in the middle of a build, but I’ve actually decided to write this in advance, let WordPress handle the logistics of posting and then bugger off to Italy for New Year’s instead ๐Ÿ˜€

This (well, last) year I feel I have been a little bit more limited in terms of time to post, but I still have plenty of projects in the pipeline, plenty of ideas I want to realise, plenty of experiments to be done etc. Heck, even the bank balance looks in reasonably good shape ๐Ÿ˜€

The only things generally lacking are time (not much I can do about that unfortunately) and then space for the projects that I finish (I might be able to do something about during the coming year, who knows?). Overall though, I think there’ll be plenty of stuff to write about during 2017 as well.

I’m still excited to see that both visitor numbers and views are steadily increasing and I think that I manage to keep the signal/noise ratio quite high here – I hope you agree!

All the best to everyone reading and best wishes for 2017 ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy 2016!

As 2015 closes behind us and 2016 is just beginning, I would of course like to say a big โ€œhello!โ€ and an even bigger โ€œthank youโ€ to all of the people following my blog and reading what I post.

Lately the posts have been a bit further apart, but despite this the reader numbers are quite high – in fact much higher than I expected and I am of course grateful for that. The blog has now been visited by people from more than 120 countries around the world which I think is extremely impressive – I am not entirely sure I could even name 120 countries ๐Ÿ˜€

In terms of what 2016 will bring thereโ€™s plenty of potential content in the pipeline I guess, but as usual work is intruding quite severely on my build time ๐Ÿ˜‰

As a small appetiser of whatโ€™s coming, one of the long-term projects that Iโ€™ve managed to make som progress on lately is my first AMB Beta 22 headphone amplifier. I built the boards several years ago but then didnโ€™t really make any progress for a long time. Finally a few months ago I summoned up the courage to test the boards and as they seemed to work fine I started on the mechanics. All thatโ€™s really left to do now is a bit of wiring and some final adjustments, so maybe sometime this summer is a realistic timeline? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Best wishes for the new year to everyone out there reading ๐Ÿ˜€
