StereoWise: About Me

Some background about myself: I was born in Rotterdam, the Netherlands,  66 years ago, ( 02 - 05 - 1955 ),when i was 16 years old i quit school and started working from hard work in construction and taking various courses. I eventually started working as a sales manager. Due to some annoying operations on both feets, i stopped working a few years ago. I always said I want to be a nice old man unfortunately my body did not understand this..

I started this website out of love for music and a passion for Audio - Hi-fi equipments, on my site i want to show you that there is more for sale than the regular brands like Yamaha, Marantz, Denon, NAD, Cambridge, Kef, Bowers& Wilkins, Dali, ecetera. If you have visited my website and there are still questions about certain amplifiers or loudspeakers, please send a mail.


Started on 10 february 2020 - 10 february 2022

If you like what i do with my site and you want to reward this - Go to bank / donations and remember that this is entirely at your choice. you are not obliged to anything but it is Appreciated.

My challenge for the Future is to ensure that as many Audio - Hifi enthusiasts know StereoWise as the website for loudspeakers and amplifiers. 

The Future: In the Future we will be spending a lot more indoors than we can imagine, with the advent of new technologies, work as we understand it will be replaced by remote work. Our living areas will therefore be revised and with it the comfort.                        And the Music ? Thankfully, will never change.

It is going to take a while, but i am working hard to be accessible via all social media channels Such as Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and more, keep visiting my website and            Have Fun, greetings Dick Hoogstadt

Music Tip:

This is a guy from the Netherlands - he looks a little bit like Mink de Ville - but he is a singer - songwriter - Danny Vera - with the beautiful song: Rollercoaster.  WoW now in the Top 2000 of Music Hits the first place above Queen with their legendary Bohemian Rhapsody.
