Audio-Related Tweaks

Many years ago I used to go in for tweaks a lot, but these days I just plug things in.

Music Preferences

90% of music I listen to is Classical Music.
I particularly like the impressionists, best known being Ravel and Debussy, however I listen to a lot of different classical composers and performers.

Gear-Fi (Favorite Non-Audio Gear & Gadgets)

I really like Moulton bicycles. I have three in fact!
