I will get it started for you as far as draft text and you all can post it on the Wiki:

Overview
ASR stands for Audio for Superior Religion. It was founded by AmirM, the God of Audio, as he is known in many circles (but not audio related). He was born in year 2000 but in order to be taken seriously, he pretends he is much older. He still lives in his parents house. Good thing they have a large garage because that is where he does his most serious work. He has been written up in all kinds of magazines (again, not audio related). He is known to hire the worst moderators to back up his angry attitude when people tell him he is no longer as good looking as he is.

The ASR forum includes many people in his own image: a bunch of vegetarians who eat steak when no one is looking. Sadly not all are as good looking as him so they hide behind avatars and aliases for their own protection.

The site has grown beyond his wildest imagination. Not because there is anything good in it but because his imagination is way too small.

The type of stuff he tests on the site comprise of audio equipment, engine oil and agricultural products (not all true). He uses stupid graphs to make stuff look good even though most of them aren't (citation needed).

Finally, he is looking for someone to run the site so that he can just sit back and order that person around (no citation needed for this as it is obvious).

History
No one knows why Amir got the urge to start the site. Some say he was too lonely and needed a companion. Since no real person would play that role, he decided to create a forum and make up a bunch of imaginary "members" to post there to make him look popular.

The alternate theory is that he is money hungry as evidenced by constant pleas for donations at the end of his reviews regardless of whether the review has any value whatsoever. He has not provided public records of his tax returns (he is the first and only forum owner to be so situated). He says he is being audited but it is a safe bet that he doesn't have enough money to be of interested to the government.

It was a good device, perhaps better than contemporary iPods. My old man used one for years.

The Wiki has omissions.
There need to be references to NwAvGuy's disappearance and the rise of Amir and a conspiracy theory that in fact Amir is the long lost NwAvGuy but to hide this no electronic designs were made. Instead he now creates his stuff under the moniker Topping.
