Shodhan is from Canada and he is an Investment Manager.

Here the comets he made for himself…

I am a passionate Audiophile and have been all of my life . With grown Children, I have been able to find the time in the last 10 years to really pursue getting close to my desired sonic solution.

I am very eclectic in my musical tastes but have the greatest affinity for Blues , early Jazz and Female acoustics. In terms of musical presentation, I have a love for the nearfield/close-miked type of sound and even though I have multiple systems, that is a form of audio performance that I have a great attraction for.

Although I am not indifferent to the differences between analog and digital systems, I have adopted a more real-world attitude to music. There are terrible sounding LP’s and great CD’s . I am more focused upon the performance and the quality of reproduction irrespective of medium.

In addition, because of my chosen musical preferences – often analog media are simply not available. When I have a choice, I prefer analog/vinyl by a significant margin and have invested both my money and a great deal of time optimizing that aspect of my system. Nevertheless, I have also committed resources to my digital collection and to understanding new and improved forms of digital reproduction such as DSD , SACD and High-Resolution downloads.

Membership of the Greater Toronto Audiophile Association has enormously helped me both by introducing me to like-minded individuals as well as their respective talents and aptitudes in different areas. Some have wonderful ears, some are articulate about speaker placement for example. Others still are enormous resource-bases for new and interesting music.
