My Interviews

Over a period of several years I have interviewed audio luminaries. It started when Ed Dell asked me to go to Munich to interview Erno Borbely, and one led to another. Several of them can be read here online, courtesy AudioXpress.

Interview with Erno Borbely for AudioXpress journal.

Interview with Nelson Pass for MultiMediaManufacturer (Feb 2010).

Interview with Malcolm Hawksford for AudioXpress journal, part 1 and part 2.

Not strictly interviews, but visit reports/articles I did as well:

My one and only AES publication: Novel feedback topology obviates the need for high loop gain, J. M. Didden, AES preprint 4597, 103rd Convention, Sept 1997. In hindsight, it wasn't really brilliant, but as they say, participation is more important than winning ;-)

We visit Mundorf

I also found out that in 1997, John Atkinson of Stereophile referenced an article of me in Audio Amateur "Negative feedback - curse or blessing". I seem to support no one less than Martin Colloms! ;-)

Want to build one of my designs?

I am flattered but would also like us to agree on a few rules.

My designs are the best I can make them, including reliability and safety. A lot of effort, time and money goes into them, and I enjoy doing it.

Nevertheless, I have obviously no control over how, where or when somebody would use a design of me. Therefore, I cannot guarantee that it will do as advertised in all cases and circumstances. I also have to decline any and all responsibility for any damages, direct or consequential, resulting from the use of my designs. Sorry about that, but that's how my lawyer wants it...

If you want to build one for your own use, go ahead. It would be nice if you would let me know how it all works out.

If you like to use one of my designs for a commercial product, we can discuss the terms of such use. If you plan to make money out of them, I would like to have some compensation for my work and effort as well. Or, if you are in need of a design consultant for a project, let me know. I’m sure we can work something out to mutual benefit.
