Me and My System

Copyright: our editors introduce themselves

My name is Matteo and I'm twenty-three, yes: 23. There aren't so many young people with this strange hobby, are they?


I consider myself a "native digital" and my approach to the music is different from a "traditional" audio enthusiast, since the heart of my system is always a PC. This is for me the best source, mostly as far as the flexibility and the convenience are concerned. Besides, I prefer the hyper-detail given by solid-state devices and chips.


As you can notice from the composition of my system, I'm a headphone lover, a choice that also is due to the impossibility of having a room specifically treated for the loudspeakers and, consequently, an optimal outcome. With the headphones you don't have this kind of problems and, furthermore, I can have several typologies without having the entire house occupied.

I like very much the new technologies and the possibility of experiment them directly. I own headphones and IEM of almost all the typologies: traditional dynamic, magneto-planar, with balanced armature and hybrid.


I participate to several forums with the nickname turo91 and I'm the moderator in one of these. I've also have a personal space where I issue the tests of headphones, DACs and amps: the Stereo-Head website


Besides the headphones my other passions are bike and bicycle.
