Thomas has been a tech-head since high school. He was that guy who soldered up mains-powered MusicColour boxes and strobe lights for the school social (schools were lackadaisical about student safety in those days). Later he taught himself computer coding, first BASIC, then PASCAL, then Assembler. Ever since those school days he’s been a music lover, and a hifi lover. He has written thousands of published reviews over the past couple of decades.
