About Read Research

With twenty years experience of designing and building audio equipment, and an appreciation of production techniques and CE certification, Read Research can be trusted to deliver the goods. Sometimes it's hard to get hold of decent designs that use parts that are easily available and affordable to hobbyists and small run builders in the UK. I hope to change that. My aim is to provide this community with resources for their own high-quality audio equipment. Audio equipment that is soundly engineered and high performing, using commonly available, value for money quality industrial parts and single-sided, novice-friendly boards.



I support the TurnMeUp! campaign to bring the dynamics back to recorded music.
