Noam Bronstein has been involved in the audio scene for over thirty years. His interest actually began in Montreal, circa 1977, when his stepfather brought home a pair of Magnepan MG-II planar speakers. As a 12-year-old, he was pretty impressed. The Beatles never sounded so good, not to mention Beethoven. He started to make a habit of studying Stereo Review and Gramophone magazines. Five years later, and still a teenager, he found himself working for Toronto Hi-Fi, selling gear like Dual, Klipsch, Luxman and Yamaha in the early 1980’s.

Noam has a broad range of music interests, and has owned and evaluated hundreds of hi-fi components and speakers over the last 18+ years. He’s enthusiastic about turntables, tube amplifiers, and DIY projects. Motorcycles, too. After leaving the corporate world in 2012, Noam launched Wall Of Sound in early 2014. He is also a part-time website developer.

Noam resides with his wife in Waterford, Ontario (Canada).
