Jim Swantko has been an audiophile since his teenage years cutting his teeth with high performance car audio stereo systems which lead him all the way to becoming a professional audiophile reviewer. Jim’s system goal is to recreate the energy and magic that one experiences while listening to a live performance. His taste in music is eclectic ranging from acoustic folk to jazz to heavy metal so it has to be a jack of all trades. This pursuit has led him to experiment with ultra-high end surround systems, tube systems, full active systems and everything in between.

Jim Swantko has been a professional audiophile reviewer for over 15 years having worked for HomeTheaterReview.com and now FutureAudiophile.com
