About Malcolm Steward

Malcolm Steward Writing about audio professionally since the mid-1980s has been a fantastically enjoyable and satisfying task but also a hardening one: it has forced upon me an honesty that I feel compelled to share with my readers. This has not made me popular with those manufacturers who rate success and wealth above integrity... and there are a few of those! I can live with that, though, because the gear the 'good guys' produce more than makes up for all manner of ills! Stereo is still fun, even after forty years... Thank God!
