Jack English Joins Ultimate Audio

Myles Astor, publisher of Ultimate Audio, recently announced that former Stereophile contributing editor Jack English has joined his publication as a senior editor.

"Jack's razor-sharp, analytic reviewing style and insightful commentary are enjoyed by audiophiles worldwide. He will focus on the ultimate in high-end audio equipment," Astor said in a press release. "Jack has made many contributions to the industry, most notably helping formalize the language of audio reviewing."

Jack English has a long personal history with high-end audio journalism. He was one of the founders of Sounds Like . . ., and over the past 15 years has also written for The Abso!ute Sound and the now-defunct Fi magazine.

Astor noted that, in addition to himself, "Many of today's leading audio journalists got their start at Sounds Like . . . , including UA senior editor Michael Gindi and jazz reviewer Elliot Kallen." Stereophile's own Bob Reina is also a Sounds Like . . . alumnus and Myles' wife, Lisa Astor, writes the bi-monthly humor column "Astor Place" for Stereophile, in which she details the travails of a "hi-fi widow."

We wish Jack well in his new position.
