Franck Tchang is an autodidact in many disciplines. One of his co-built guitars is in the book Luthier de France. He plays clubs in Paris. When designing for audio, guitars are his guides. The approach is hands on and often informed by spontaneous ideas without precedents. Having developed the entire acoustic resonator concept from ground zero, Franck Tchang has trained himself to become a highly sensitive listener with a unique perspective and focus. Tchang’s work with air turbulence and compression effects has primarily benefitted audiophiles who have enjoyed the fruits of his labours.
Franck Tchang will be speaking on ‘The Art of HiFi Listening’ throughout the show, 4th – 6th July at 3PM.
