My interest in Audio electronics goes back to when my big brother taught me how to solder while still at junior school. I had built several radio’s, amplifiers and even a digital signalling system for my model railway before I attended Manchester University in the 80’s. Graduating with a 1st in Electronic Engineering I designed electronics professionally for a decade, including digital telephone exchanges, networking products and media servers. I have published research and patents too. It is this training and experience which lets me safely tinker with things and breathe life into many a car boot find.
