Greg Weaver entered the audio electronics industry as a hobbyist at the end of the 1960’s, before he could legally drive a car, and rapidly moved into the retail side of the business. Throughout the 1970’s and 1980’s, he grew to supervise a variety of audio shops and small audio specialty chains, eventually moving on to manage a number of fine audio salons.
Also in the 1980’s, after receiving his degree in digital electronics, he partnered a consumer electronics repair shop where he did everything from designing and installing contest-winning custom competition IASCA 12-volt audio systems to repairing computers to designing, building, and implementing circuits for coin-operated video arcade games.
He has been an industry journalist and product reviewer since the late 1980’s when he founded the audio analyst©. Shortly thereafter, he found himself writing for, and editing, numerous print and internet journals. He has been an industry consultant since the late 1990’s, working with companies such as Harmonic Technology (Greg lead the team that developed the original Magic™ line of products), Quantum, and NSR Sonic Research and has judged the High-Performance Audio category for the annual Consumer Technology Association’s (originally the Consumer Electronics Association’s) Innovations and Engineering Awards from 2009-2012 and again in both 2016 and 2017.
Greg resides in north central Indiana with his wife and their Great Dane, Stella. He is currently publishing reviews and videos at his website and YouTube Channel as the audio analyst©, a Senior Reviewer for Enjoy the Music, and a Senior Editor at Positive-Feedback. He also spent six years as a senior writer for The Absolute Sound and was a contributor to the TAS Illustrated History of High-End Audio book series. Having taken his early retirement after spending 15 years as the senior IT Engineer/Analyst for the Athletics Department of the University of Notre Dame, he is now free to devote his days to his passion for music and reproduced sound.
