Andy Regan – HiFiMAN
If there were a high-end audio version of “I’ve Been Everywhere” it would be about Andy. The ones I know of are: Sound by Singer (famous high-end audio retailer in New York); Monster Cable (he was one of the guys that would fly private jets around meeting the NBA teams getting on to their private jets to give them all Beats headphones); Cardas (not sure exactly what he did there…probably all the stuff that let George stay in the lab); JH Audio (same story; he was president so Jerry could do his magic in the lab). I’m sure there are many more.
I think he just get’s bored once he gets things sorted out. Wisely, it seems to me, he’s started a consulting firm to come in at a high level to solve problems and help make high end audio companies successful. Might as well do what you’re good at. His first gig is at HiFiMAN…gonna be fun to watch that play out over the next couple of years.
But enough of that, Andy is also one of the funniest and smartest guys in the audio biz. We’ve done the word dance over drinks dozens of times and it’s always pretty damned hysterical. He’s got stories!
