How do you listen to music in your everyday life?
I listen to music in the car, at work and most of all at home through speakers, which is connected to Spotify music app through mobile or iPad.
When/how did your interest for hi-fi begin?
I always had a passion for good sound quality. It started in my early years. I was listening to music either on my way to school, while sitting in the bus or on the train, where you just get the chance to sit back and relax and listen to some really good music through great earphones.
Do you prefer: CD, vinyl or digital?
I prefer digital, since it comes with me everywhere. I can play a song, whenever I want.
Why do you think that there isn’t that many women represented in the audiophile world?
I think most women stay away from great hi-fi speakers, because their initial thought is that it might take up a lot of space, and that it will ruin the interior designing etc. But my experience is that there are speakers for every taste and in every size, also with various solutions, which will suit any home interior.
How/where do you discover new music and artists?
It's through radio and spotify.
The last two records that you have bought?
I use Spotify, which I pay for monthly.
Is there an artist, genre or period that you are particularly fond of?
I listen to all kind of music depending on my mood, but my everyday genre, which I mostly listen to is RnB & pop. I love to listen to John Legend when I'm at home and relax or when I have my friends over, because the music is very slow and relaxing. I listen to Beyonce, Drake and various other music which have more beat to it, when I drive or when at work, because I feel the music keeps me awake and going.
Which records are the pride of your collection?
Unfortunately I dont have any.
What has been your best live concert experience?
Rihanna in Copenhagen, Denmark. This was one of the best live concerts because the sound and the atmosphere was just great.
What made you choose DALI speakers for your home stereo??
Me and my husband were building a house and wanted some really good speakers for our living room, and that is where we went for DALI. The design and the good sound quality made me go over the moon. The speakers were hi-fi speakers, so we connected them to our Bluesound sound system. They absolutely work good together and it's like stepping into another world. I've never regretted our choice.
