This guy is just another Youtube audio clown. There are quite a few of them.

Mike is unique and outspoken, yet he is knowledgeable and experienced and has a great set of ears. He has facilitated me auditioning expensive equipment is my own home with no pressure to purchase and the items I have purchased from him have been of very high quality build, and greatly musical sound, representing very high bang for the buck.  He is more of the "all details are there but it need to flow naturally and be inviting for hours of listening", versus "hyper-clean and details in a way the fatigues after a half hour of so." I find him passionate about music and trustworthy and worthy of respect.
