About Brandon A. DuHamel

Brandon is a musician, poet, and home recordist who has been an avid music collector and audiophile since he was a teenager. Over the years, Brandon became very interested in music in surround and thus the area of home theater.

Brandon decided to try his hand at writing for the enthusiast crowd, which he has been a part of for so many years. Brandon has been a writer and Blu-ray reviewer for the popular A/V enthusiast website Big Picture Big Sound, which he joined after spending time working as a forum moderator and Blu-ray Disc reviewer at a Blu-ray-themed fan site.

Feeling that there was need for a more professionally minded and friendly Blu-ray themed website with a slightly broader scope and appeal, Brandon decided to start TheaterByte to fill the void. Eventually TheaterByte became too constrained to cover the vastly expanding world of home entertainment and electronics, so the site morphed into what it is today and became TheaterByte. Brandon is also currently a writer for the popular A/V print periodical Sound&Vision.

When he is not writing, playing his Les Paul, or watching movies, you can find him listening to one of the SACDs, DVD-As, or CDs from his large collection.
