Andrew Harrison is a writer and journalist who appreciates the way art and science combine in the world of audio technology.
An early education in practical electronics gave way to music performance, until hanging up the Fender Precision to study philosophy of science at Greenwich. After graduation Harrison worked in hi-fi sales and installations for a major UK manufacturer, before finding audio journalism the perfect fit for a dedicated follower of science, literature and music.
Harrison’s publishing career started at Hi-Fi World in 1998, followed by the call to Hi-Fi News for a decade of testing, writing and editing reviews on every kind of high-fidelity technology. Until desktop publishing spawned a fascination in Macs and UNIX, leading to IT specialisation and technical editor roles at Macworld and PC Advisor magazines. Assorted freelance features have been published in BBC Focus, The Register, Ars Technica and Polish Playboy.
As Contributing Editor Digital at HIFICRITIC, Andrew Harrison continues to probe computer audio networks and scour the small print of the latest digital audio innovations – when he’s not enjoying the possibilities of several thousand LPs and a good record player. Harry now plays Fender Jazz.
