Steven R. Rochlin Bio For Enjoy the Music.com


  I toil away each day fine-tuning the Enjoy the Music.com website while enjoying music and love code work for various entities. Most of you internet old timers know me, though for those of you that are not familiar with my accomplishments...

Became a music lover at the age of five when my dad brought me to a live performance of 1812 (with live blasting caps substituting for cannons). Began playing music at the ripe ol' age of nine and was classically trained in snare drum, bells, tympani, xylophone, assorted percussion, and later a complete drum kit. My first "day job" was with longstanding and well respected electronics company Heathkit, where my duties were diverse. Helping build kits and maintaining their BBS system were among my duties. i began the Enjoy the Music.com website in 1995 after accomplishing well over thirteen years experience in electronics retail.

In 1995 Enjoy the Music.com was launched in hopes of being of service to music lovers globally. During the 1996 WCES, i was a panel member of the very first CES workshop dealing with internet issues. Have also been a supporter of the Music Cares Foundation, who assist those musicians in need of  assistance due to chemical addictions, financial, or medical needs. All types of music are enjoyable to my ears as a classically trained musician. This includes various forms of jazz, classical, progressive and rock music.



In 2007 decided to race a Van Diemen (1999 chassis) Formula 2000 open wheel winged car. During my first year, 2007, earned second place within SCCA's Driving Championship. In 2008 successfully earned the SCCA Driver's Champion for Formula 2000 / Formula Continental and have not raced since achieving this goal. 


How Did Enjoy the Music.com Originate?
Longtime classically-trained medal-earning musician and high fidelity audio enthusiast Steven R. Rochlin launched Enjoy the Music.com in 1995 as a way to easily answer the many questions he was receiving from others online. Since he grew tired of answering the same basic questions from various people during the very early days of the Internet, when at that time information was scarce, he felt having various common questions and answers on a website was the logical action.

Since day one to today, Steven R. Rochlin is very active in helping guide the many independent journalists to the goals Enjoy the Music.com continues to desire in achieving as the site's Creative Director. His writings and/or photos have appeared, in one form or another, in the following magazines:

Boston Audio Society
Car Stereo Review
Gadget World
Hi-Fi News
Klar Text
Musique et Technique
Positive Feedback
Primyl Vinyl
Rolling Stone
Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity
The Audiophile Voice
Ultimate Audio
Various Newspapers
Western New York Audio Society


Steven R. Rochlin is also, or at one time was, a Member of the Audio Engineering Society (AES), Consumer Electronics Association's Citizen Action Network (CEA CAN), is a member of the Boston Audio Society (BAS), San Francisco Audiophile Society, Los Angeles Audiophile Society, has a Master's Degree from of the Academy Advancing High Performance Audio & Video (AAHPAV), plus an International Auto Sound Challenge Association (IASCA) certified judge. He was also a Member of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (Grammy Award organization). His work has been recognized by many authorities within the industry including the President of the Consumer Technology Association (was CEA) and was a member to help guide CEA's high-end audio division.

Since one of my loves is the art of mechanical timepieces, including floorstanding (Grandfather tall clocks), desktop clocks, wall clocks, and wristwatches, am a Member / Circle of Friends of the prestigious AHCI (Académie Horlogère des Créateurs Indépendants) in Europe plus a member of the USA's NAWCC (National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors) and an active supporter of the international HOROPEDIA Foundation.

In 2019 decided to rebirth my joy / love of playing percussion and drums. This is a continuation of a dream back in the 1980s, in Miami, when studio and a bit of touring duties were part of my life. So decided upon quite a bit of percussion instruments plus a custom built Sonor SQ2 drum kit.

Side projects by Steven R. Rochlin include being a recording engineer and solo artist with the release of his reference-quality drum/percussion album available at www.THTST.com, earning the Driver's Championship in Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) Formula 2000 series, medium format camera, mechanical watch enthusiast... plus too much more to mention here.



My motto: What really matters is that you enjoy the music.
