How to support SoundExpert
Let's be honest – there are no "free ratings" in the real-world, because quality control is funded either by the equipment manufacturer, or the consumer. SoundExpert is made for, and by, audio consumers and is not affiliated with any audio manufacturers or developers. It works only thanks to audio enthusiasts who contribute their attention, time and effort. Fortunately, distributed projects over the internet can utilize collective efforts to efficiently achieve these goals. The goal of SoundExpert is to create a publicly-available mechanism for objective measurements of perceived sound quality of various audio equipment and technologies.
If you like the idea of consumer control over audio quality measurements and how this idea is implemented on the site, you can make your contribution to further this project's research and development.
Any assistance will be gratefully received, whether it is time and effort contributing to research, or simply donating a few bucks. Here are some options:
- Make a donation
- Grant equipment
- Download and grade a test file
Other ideas might still be in your head. Your proposals are accepted. Feel free to contact us.

We will do our best to maintain the project alive and up-to-date as we did it since 2001. Wherever it is possible we try to use free and open source products in our work. All other expenses, including testing equipment and web hosting, are covered by SE authors privately. If you like to share some of these expenses with us you can donate any amount using the options below. Thank you!

As SoundExpert is non-commercial independent research project we can´t afford buying expensive laboratory equipment. At the moment we need high-precision D/A and A/D converters which will allow to start objective measurements and listening tests of high quality audio equipment both digital and analog.
Basic features and specifications required:
We will receive such laboratory instrument with gratitude and this fact will be mentioned on SoundExpert site specially. Please, contact us for details.
