Well, about myself… huh. I’m still very young, especially when compared to the rest of the writers at CYMBACAVUM. I’m still a junior at a high school. Currently, I’m attending a private boarding school in Massachusetts called the Deerfield Academy.
To be honest, I only started this hobby 3 years ago. My dad used to be an audio enthusiast, so I guess my enthusiasm for audio has its base. Anyways, I was always interested in decent audio. What started me off was a pair of beats that I purchased at an Apple store.
Wait wait. Don’t leave yet.
Starting off bad doesn’t mean ending up bad. So, ever since beats, I grew more and more intrigued by audio. My first audiophile gear was probably the SE215. Since the purchase of SE215, my purchase expedited. I do come from a family that stands in good financial standing, so more purchase wasn’t a too big of a deal. Now, here I stand, owning two $999 IEMs and having owned various other summit-fi portable gears.
My journey as a reviewer began last year. I had a chance to review the UE Reference Monitors, and that started me off. Since then, I mostly wrote reviews on head-fi.
Oh, maybe I’ll talk about my personal preferences and things.
I’m a big fan of portable gear because I travel a lot, and having big gears are always burdensome.
I am also a big fan of digital copies. This means no CD or Vinyl(but I do own some CDs). Most of my music are just lossless FLAC files(and I do pay for them!).
Anyways, that’s me: A South Korean student studying in MA. Audio has become part of my life, and I hope to share some of my own experience with everyone.
