SoundStage! Australia launched on July 1, 2017. One of its purposes is to inform Australian audiophiles; however, since it resides online, it can be read and enjoyed worldwide.
In charge of SoundStage! Australia is well-respected hi-fi journalist Edgar Kramer. Prior to leading SoundStage! Australia, Edgar contributed to the following print and online publications: Audio Esoterica as editor, and Australian Hi-Fi and Sound+Image as a reviews editor, and 6moons.com as a senior reviewer.
From his headquarters, in the beautiful Blue Mountains in Sydney, Australia, Edgar’s responsibilities include writing feature articles and reviews, in addition to leading the site’s team of reviewers, who are all based in Australia. SoundStage! Australia was created as a platform for the Australian hi-fi scene, so it’s natural that all the content originates there.
