A Conversation With Danny Kaey From SonicFlare

Earlier this year I had an opportunity to demo a pair of Wilson Audio Chronosonic XVX loudspeakers (think McLaren 720S territory) and was completely blown away. In this month's owner interview, I got the chance to chat with an XVX owner who happens to have an equally impressive record collection. He is, of course, none other than the inimitable Danny Kaey from SonicFlare. We covered a handful of fun topics from his editorial concept to make hifi more accessible to the journey leading up to his current Wilson XVX speakers.
