Andrew Lipinski has an academic background in both, music and sound engineering, with years of award-winning professional experience. He received his professional training under the guidance of professor Antoni Karuzas at the State Academy of Music in Warsaw, Poland (Tonmeister Program), having been awarded a Master's degree summa cum laude.

His diploma recital included avant-garde quadraphonic analog recordings. His passion for surround never expired.
