    The cheapaudioman is somewhat of an acquired taste. First pass at his site was memorable but a bit unimpressive but I went back. Soon his is among the top 3 sites that I visit on a regular basis for audio. His no-nonsense (ok, ok a LOT of nonsense …) approach to audio is informative and interesting. So far, he seems to “tell it as he sees it”, very refreshing.
