How do you listen to music in your everyday life?
Music is my life, and it provides me with a constant energy boost. At home I listen to SONOS: when I get up, during the morning ritual, and when I'm home in the evening. Then I often enjoy listening to my DALI FAZON F5 loudspeakers. I either dance, sing or just relax in my sofa when listening.
When/how did your interest for hi-fi begin?
My ex-boyfriend introduced me to Hi-Fi and DALI 12 years ago. DALI has remained my favourite number one since.
Do you prefer: CD, vinyl or digital?
I usually listen digitally, but I'm interested in the authentic sound of vinyl and will soon purchase one.
Why do you think that there isn’t that many women represented in the audiophile world?
Because we love talking, and not to listen.. ;) I think that women will discover that Hi–Fi anno 2017 doesn’t necessarily mean large black loudspeakers with difficult technical user layout. Nowadays it's easy to find great sound, delicate design and user friendly music systems which connect your speakers.
Which track will always wake a feeling in you?
Pink Floyd: Wish You Were Here.. That song was played in my friends funeral and its beautiful.
How/where do you discover new music and artists?
Mostly through friends' recommendations and music lists at Spotify.
Is there an artist, genre or period that you are particularly fond of?
I love rock music, and especially from the 70s, 80s and 90s. For example Deep Purple, Judas Priest, Billy Idol, Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Foo Fighters.
Which records are the pride of your collection?
Unfortunately I don’t have anyone left.
What has been your best live concert experience?
Im usually every weekend at a concert, but I had a great experience at Poppodium in Holland when Within Temptation performed in December 2016.
What made you choose DALI speakers for your home stereo?
I have a pair of DALI FAZON F5 in the front and a pair of FAZON MIKRO in the back. I chose these because of the clear sound and the unique design. They fit my livingroom perfectly and it’s great to have parties and friends here. They always enjoy listening to the FAZON's and are impressed by the cool environment.
What would be the ultimate playlist for your DALI speakers?
1. Rag'n'Bone Man - Human
2. Seal - Crazy
3. Within Temptation - Tell Me Why
4. Ary - The Sea
5. Device - You Think You Know
6. Ryan Adams - Wonderwall
7. Kings of Leon - Closer
