About Sound Advice

Sound Advice is my Q&A newspaper column about electronics and home entertainment. In the column I answer reader questions about televisions, cameras and photography, video cameras and videomaking, stereo and surround sound systems, portable electronics, and other associated topics. I focus on practical advice that really works and is easy to understand, and provide product recommendations that provide the best performance no matter the budget.
The column first appeared in print in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on July 4, 2002 under the name Multimedia Answers.  The column quickly spread to other newspapers and was renamed Sound Advice. Now it appears in major newspapers coast-to-coast and is read by millions of people every week.
If you need a product recommendation or would like to send me a question about your TV, stereo system, home theater, portable devices, digital cameras, etc., I will try to answer you personally and your question might even appear in the column. See the Submit Question page.

About Don

Audio, video and photography have been my passions since my early teens. In addition to working as a full-time professional photographer for many years (though not currently), I’ve been helping others choose and use cameras and electronics since 1986. If you are spending $100 or $100,000, I know the industry and the market inside and out and have the answers.
