Thoughts about the "Cheapaudioman" on YouTube

This gentleman has stirred up some controversy in the audio world over on YouTube. I personally, find him very interesting.  What are your thoughts?


He created a large enough YouTube following to allow him to quit his day job and play with audio equipment all day.  He is smarter than all of us. 

+1. whatever you think of his opinions or the gear he focuses on, this is really cool

@seanheis1 Randy puts in a bunch of time, and I’m sure wants that time to pay (I don’t hold that against him). I don’t give him money myself, but he’s entertaining to some and nothing wrong for a tip jar IMO.

Can’t say/feel that he’s sold out, but good damn does that man love Emotiva!

@dreas ... Well said!

Randy seems to be improving as he goes along. He readily admits his mistakes. I think he will be invaluable down the road to newbies. This translates to keeping this hobby alive. IMO.

Today his sponsor was Sith Audiophile coffee: While not made from real audiophiles, "It captures what it means to be an audiophile, old and bitter."


He seems to be an influencer getting his footing with his audience. Nice way to make a living.
