Born and raised in Medfield, MA, Chris has always been a fan of music. He played cello starting in second grade and then played saxophone for the rest of his educational years. Chris has audio in his blood as his father was the vice president of marketing for Bose as well as Gibson Pro Audio.
Chris started his career in hi-fi with Magnolia as a system designer. This is where the “audiophile bug” really got him, and he saved up to own a McIntosh MC275 and a pair of Bowers and Wilkins 804 D3. Chris joined Upscale Audio in 2021 and moved to SoCal soon after. This is when he found his new love for the current brands he owns which include his beloved Klipschorns.
Chris specializes in headphones, speakers, amplifiers, streamers, and DACs. Other passions include hiking and video games.
