Mike Malinowski, Sr. Equipment Reviewer
Mike Malinowski joins AVShowrooms as a senior equipment reviewer. Mike has been an audio and music lover since the womb. He is a leading reviewer for 6moons specializing in cost no object equipment and will add AVShowrooms to his prestigious reviewing positions. Mike's listening room is indeed one the leading listening rooms in the world. He designed his home around the 20x30x10 foot room and every aspect of the design from the dedicated Equi=tech power system to the wall material to the ASC TubeTraps was implemented to provide a noise free acoustically-neutral environment for sound. His current reference loudspeaker, the Wilson Alexandria II is the centerpiece of the room. The sound is like a front row concert seat.

Zach Galarza, Equipment Reviewer, 2015
Zach is an enthusiastic equipment reviewer and music lover who has been obsessed with hearing music with the utmost fidelity. Zach's grandfather was an avid classical music listener. At a young age, Zach would stop everything, and sit on his grandfather's stairs and listen when music was being played. The quality of reproduced music became relevant when he was a teenager exploring various methods of music storage (compression rates, audio codecs, etc.). Zach remembers the very moment when he first heard an uncompressed piece of music for the first time; it was an explosive discovery. Ever since that moment, Zach has demanded to hear music in the highest possible fidelity. Zach asserts that high-end audio presents the music lover with the ultimate solution for hearing music in its purist form."

Reviewing audio equipment is an art. You have to have the ability to describe the sound of a component within the context of a known system. You have to know what a real instrument sounds like and you have to attend concerts to know what a live performance sounds like.
Our reviewers are the very best in the industry. We have the most talented young reviewer, we have the only major US symphony orchestra member as a reviewer, we have a CBS audio technician as a reviewer, and we have an expert reviewer with a custom built 30x20x10 executive listening room.
I created AVShowrooms to take high performance audio into the world of video and social media. I believe that Youtube and Facebook are far more effective at growing the love of audio than traditional media. I also believe that video reporting and reviewing is more exciting than the written word. Plus, with a good set of headphones you can hear what we we hear!
