Bernhard Rietschel…

… already had solid hi-fi genes when he was born in Karlsruhe in 1964. No wonder: his uncle Johannes Maier helped shape hi-fi journalism in Germany for several decades and Bernhard is simply continuing along this path. He was a retail salesman, DJ, author… However, most people will know Bernhard Rietschel from his many years as editor-in-chief of Audio, which he left in summer 2015.

Since then, Bernhard has been a freelance author and has been working more and more for LowBeats. It is his own relaxed seriousness and great versatility that you can always read in his contributions. From record players to streaming: Bernhard knows more about almost all hi-fi topics than any other hi-fi journalist in Germany. At LowBeats, Bernhard looks after the areas that interest him the most: all of them.
