Jon Eben Field

I go by “Jon Eben” (a two-part first name) and grew up with music always filtering through my awareness. My parents’ record collection featured plenty of Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Fleetwood Mac, and a diverse range of others. I really came into my own musically, though, when I took a course called “listening to jazz” at Dalhousie University where saxophonist Don Palmer would spin records from his collection and tell stories about the jazz scene in NYC in the 1960s. My musical interests range from jazz and blues to folk, alternative, bluegrass, rock, and most things in-between. I am a promiscuous listener. I have been buying and selling audio gear for about twenty years and have a deep love for tube amps. I am currently fascinated by SET amps and high efficiency speakers, but am always looking to hear more in the music. Drop me an email if you want to chat about music and audio gear.
