Long time hifi enthusiast. Mostly into analog and vintage stuff. Most have been upgraded/modded. I first got into reel to reel recording in the late 60's with my first decent deck being a TEAC A-1230 I bought new on February 22, 1972. It's still up and running today along with an Akai GX-370D, and Revox A77mkIV and Revox B77. Cassette wise I have a TASCAM 122mkII, Nakamichi CR3A, and Carver TD1700. Tape deck and processor selector: Russound TMS-10. Turntable: Revox B795 with Grado Gold cartridge. Preamp is a modded Carver C5 feeding into a modded Phase Linear 400 amp. CD player is a Pioneer PF-27 Elite "jukebox". Tuners: Carver TX-8 and Sangean HDT-1X for FM HD. Equalizer: Soundcraftsman RP-2251R, Speakers are McIntosh XD-717 and of course some other miscellaneous items. In bedroom I have a Sony receiver and CD carousel along with another Sangean HDT-1X tuner. My wife and I go to sleep with music every night.
My favorite genres are Classical, Jazz, and Classic Rock (from my high school and college days)! I have a rather large collection of reel to reel tapes, cassettes and LP's.
I also am a volunteer bugler and Assistant State Director for Bugles Across America. We provide taps at no charge for Soldiers KIA/veterans and at civic events.
Hope above isn't too much but instructions said to say something about myself.
I never like listening to headphones much but am sort of forced into it not. I rarely leave the house due to battling some health issues. Started battling cancer almost 4 years ago and this forced me to leave an awesome career in engineering to go on disability. Hence I've been stuck at home but do listen to a lot of music. My wife was a school teacher and took early retirement at the beginning of this year to be home with me so no more playing music at really awesome volume levels when she's home. I love listening to a symphony at realistic volume levels. I have a pair of Koss HV-1's that I bought in the early 70's and a pair of Bose Tri-Port TP-1A. I'm borrowing my sons Sennheiser HD-280 Pro's and they really are far superior to any of my others. Currently I can get new Sennheiser HD-360 Pro's for about $44. Seems like a steal. I seem to prefer over the ear though I'm also considering Grado. Suggestions welcome from anyone that actually made it this far down in my rant!
