Thinking about cutting the cord? Read this.
That’s why, a few years ago, I decided to kick the cable habit and join the small but growing cadre of “cord cutters,” people who’ve abandoned their pay TV subscriptions for the more interesting and generally more affordable pastures of Internet video. Meanwhile, cable providers consistently rank among the worst companies in annual surveys of customer satisfaction. The easiest way to stream it to your flat screen is by buying a $100 (or less) s...

Introduction

I first came to work for Crutchfield in 1977. I did a bit of everything in those early days, from packing boxes, to catalog copywriting, to buying merchandise. I left Crutchfield in 1983 to finish college and pursue a brief career in journalism. Ten years later, I came back and have been here ever since.

These days I write about home audio for Crutchfield, and I edit the work of several other Crutchfield staff writers. I enjoy listening to blues and jazz on the hi-fi gear I'm free to take home for "research" purposes.
